11 years earlier, she starred as Hayley May in the season six Grey’s Anatomy episode Shiny Happy People. She played a teenage girl recently diagnosed with schizophrenia.

Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) discovers that Hayley has a tiny hole in her inner ear that makes her overly sensitive to sound and causes her to hurt herself. Hayley May is diagnosed with superior canal dehiscence syndrome and won’t have any symptoms after surgery.

“As a matter of fact, it’s such a real thing that we got a letter sometime after it aired from a mother who had been having a lot of problems with her child. They’d been kind of shuffled from doctor to doctor,” medical doctor/consultant Zoanne Clack told host Gordon James about the ailment faced by Demi Lovato’s character Hayley May in an episode of ABC’s web series Post-Op.

“And once they’d heard about superior canal dehiscence syndrome or something like that, they took him to an EMT to ask, specifically, for a test for this, and that’s what they had. So that was a definite win.”

“We sort of make sure that all the medicine is as close to real as possible,” former ER doctor Fred Einesman added about the realism of the show during the Post-Op episode.

Oh, Demi Lovato. In April 2016, the “Cool for the Summer” singer fell on stage yet again.

During her entrance at the 2016 WE Day California event, she missed the step down to a lower platform and took a tumble in full view of everyone. The audience let out an audible gasp as Demi face-planted right on stage.

The then 23-year-old entertainer handled it like a pro thanks to her previous fall. She quickly rebounded, struck a pose with both her arms in the air, and quickly reassured the audience with an “I’m OK!”
