Goofs: Factual errors: At the end of the movie, Robert takes unconscious Amy out of the hospital. The cardiac monitor shows absence of cardiac electrical activity, i.e. asystole. Asystole is a type of cardiac arrest classified as \”non shockable rhythm\” and its initial management exclude the use of defibrillation. They should have started cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) maneuvers instead. Furthermore, when an electrical shock is delivered, a typical waveform should have appeared in the monitor. 

\”As the new night nurse at a soon to be abandoned children\’s hospital readies the last group of orphans to leave, it becomes increasingly clear that these are not normal children. Something living in the hospital, something the children call the \”mechanical girl,\” has a terrifying hold over them and will stop at nothing to keep them in the hospital with her forever.
