House - No Doctor Does It Like This
I don't know if this is a real slip-up, but it's definitely something blaming the medical guys of the House-crew!
In Season 2, Episode Deceptions House injects himself some meds. The scene begins with House sitting at his device, applying the vein-blocker, filling the syringe. Then he injects the med, pulls the needle out of his arm, draws his arm back to the body (to squeeze his armpit), waits, injects the second med, removes the vein-blocker and start opening and closing his fist.
Making an injection like this is one of the easiest ways to commit suicide!

Okay, I just re-read this slip-up I added two years ago and want to add a little note: The proper way to make an injection is to apply the vein-blocker, bring the needle into the vein, release the blocker and push the syringe to release the content into the vein. The way House did it, two things would happen: The moment he drew out the first needle, he had a fountain of blood spilling out due to the pressure in the blocked vein. Second, the moment he eventually removed the vein-blocker, both meds would suddenly rush into the blood-stream all at once, which can cause severe, if not fatal effects to the body. The blocker must always be removed before injecting, to let the med' dilute into the bloodstream. Third, to draw your arms together and making a fist after an injection is the worst thing, one can do. It does not cause an injury, but the pressure created by doing both things will leave you with a really huge bruise. Remember my words next time you are in the hospital ;)
