Not really, but live animals are operated on while under anasthesia as an educational thing.

There are some patients and doctors who are survivors of domestic violence. The abuse is not shown, but the injuries are. One doctor’s abuser is shown strangling her but it turns out to be a dream/imagined scenario. An abuser lunges at their victim but does not teach them.

Several episodes deal with abuse/neglect, including Meredith's mother abusing/neglecting her which is a main theme, as well as Alex and his family being abused by his father

Webber is an alcoholic but recovers, patients who use drugs come in to the ER, some patients are accused of being drug seekers, and Amelia is a recovering oxycontin (and other medications) user and struggles with almost relapsing, including when she actually goes out and buys oxy and the drugs are shown on screen.

A girl comes to the hospital who was kidnapped and sexually assault and it is implied that she was tortured. Other than that, there aren't actually torture scenes but there are scenes where patients are held down while painful medical procedures are performed.

While this episode does not directly deal with self harm season 5 episode 8 was extremely triggering as the interns practice sutures on each other’s wrists and some of the doctors believe they are engaging in self harm and the interns behave in many ways that were similar to such and extremely triggering as someone who had a history with that.

the show is generally anti-cop, particularly in the later seasons. cops are usually shown getting in the way of the doctors rather than helping. season 17 mentions main characters attending anti-police brutality protests.

Usually you can hear when the doctors will use a needle/syringe/IV etc and there’s time to look away. But there’s a very abrupt scene with a needle stuck in someone’s arm in S15 ep 14 around 22 minutes in. Blood starts to pour from under a door, look away then

i wouldn't consider it breaking the fourth wall, but once the pandemic began, the show went along with it. many people didn't expect the show to recreate struggles of the pandemic because so many other shows pretended things were normal.

Abortions are mentioned throughout the show. One character has an abortion. She is shown lying down before the procedure. None of the actual procedure is shown. It is a sad experience for her and her partner who wanted a baby.

A trans woman early in the show is misgendered by staff on accident (wrong pronouns and names and correcting themselves) and by her wife (calling her her husband and he), but it implies the trans woman allows her to do. In a different episode, a trans man and his trans woman girlfriend are confronted by the trans man's dad, who isn't supportive and says many things along the lines of losing his little girl etc. A trans woman is shown in later seasons who is not misgendered and fully accepted as a woman. A trans man intern is shown and never misgendered, but he discusses the DMV refusing to change the gender on his drivers license.

Transphobia, racism, and ableism (as far as I remember). A trans man is told by his father that he can't make the decision to have top surgery and that he is actually a girl. There is a police shooting where the police try to justify it. Disabled people are made fun of and insulted by doctors and sometimes the disabled people hear this. Jackson is pro cochlear implants and sees them as necessary and says that not getting a child a cochlear implant is abuse/neglect.

There are many LGBT patients, some of them die but not all of them or even close to all of them and it doesn't come off as bury your gays. LGBT characters are otherwise treated very well.

The portrayal of autistic characters in the show, including Dr. Dixon in season 5, is often offensive and ableist. A main character is also interested in “curing” autism in season 11. Throughout the seasons, Autism Speaks signs show up around the hospital.

Their are no homophobic slurs as far as I'm aware, but some queer characters do face homophobia mostly from parents. The other doctors are fully accepting though.

Jackson and Maggie had no feelings for each other before their parents got married as Jackson was married to someone else at the time. They started growing co-dependent long after, as Maggie lost her mom and was leaning on her new family to heal. Catherine Avery (her stepmom, and Jackson's mom) specifically refers to them as siblings. So, as they say, even if they're not technically related, it's not great when you have to justify it's not incest by saying that
