Jacob was a patient in the NICU of Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital.
Jacob was born with an omphalocele, which means that his abdominal organs were in a sack outside his body. Silver sulfadiazine was applied daily as a bridge to delay closure.
While Dr. Ross was applying silver sulfadiazine for the day, the omphalocele burst, putting Jacob's life at risk. Dr. Robbins quickly protected his organs with vicryl mesh. With the risk contained, she planned a double-thickness skin graft and told a nurse to monitor him carefully.
