Debbie was a nurse at Seattle Grace Hospital.


Izzie's PartyEdit

She attended the party Izzie threw for her boyfriend. At the party, she made out with her ex-boyfriend, Dr. Taylor. ("Notes from the Nurses' Station")

Harassing CristinaEdit

When Cristina Yang annoyed her by dismissing her rudely when she asked about Shane Herman, Debbie got revenge by paging her constantly for disgusting cases (at one point, one of those patients vomited on Cristina). ("Something to Talk About")

Sophie LarsonEdit

When Sophie Larson was hospitalized, Debbie was one of her nurses. When George inquired about why Sophie hadn't yet left the hospital, Debbie said it's because she's not a bouncer. She complained about the lack of resources and staffing in the hospital. ("Tell Me Sweet Little Lies")

Nurses' StrikeEdit

When the understaffing pushed them to the breaking point, the second-shift nurses did a sick out and Debbie delivered official notice to Richard that they were going on strike in ten days. ("Tell Me Sweet Little Lies")

While walking the picket line, Debbie, along with Olivia and Joe, asked George to go in to check on their patients. ("Break on Through")

Bomb ThreatEdit

When there was a bomb in a patient's chest cavity, Debbie informed the Chief when the Bomb Squad arrived to help. ("It's the End of the World")

She also later provided the hospital blueprints, which showed that the bomb was directly over the hospital's main oxygen line. ("As We Know It")


When Shawn Beglight came into the hospital with a head injury, Debbie was one of his nurses. She assisted the doctors when they had to drill a burr hole in his hospital room and then Rick, Shawn's father, threw up on her. ("What Have I Done to Deserve This?")



Steve MostowEdit

Debbie considered pursuing a romantic relationship with Steve after he passed out in her car the week before Halloween. On the night of Halloween, they met up at Joe's Bar.

Dr. TaylorEdit

She dated Dr. Taylor for a time. They bonded over doing crosswords together in the OR and he eventually used a crossword joke to ask her out on a date. Things broke off between them because she didn't like that he didn't like to do anything that didn't involve alcohol. After they split, she kept being drawn to him, even though she knew it was a bad idea. ("Notes from the Nurses' Station")


Much of her family is made of nurses, including her late Uncle Pete, who died on Thanksgiving Day, Aunt Lucy, her sister Val, all her cousins, and her Great-Grandma Byrd.


When she was young, she was intimidated by Ellis Grey and thought she was a wonderful surgeon.

She worked at Seattle Grace as a nurse from the time of Ellis Grey and remained until at least Meredith Grey's second year of residency. She was a large part of the nurses' strike when the hospital was understaffed. ("Break on Through")

Before working at SGH, she worked at County Hospital. ("Notes from the Nurses' Station")
