Andrew El Bardissi,
Eight years after ABC News aired "Hopkins 24/7," its cameras return to Baltimore's Johns Hopkins Hospital for a new six-part documentary about the lives of the caregivers on its staff, and the patients who come through its doors.
While I haven't watched this show in probably 10 years, it stills stick with me as one of the most powerful documentary series I've ever watched.
The show takes you on a tour through a Hospital's emergency department where you meet doctors, victims, relatives and friends, and witness trauma surgery, life and death. It's all presented in a very authentic and direct way.
You will see victims from the second they're rolled in to the hospital and laid on the surgery table. You will be absorbed and excited while begging for a positive outcome, because some will die. In some cases you will also see relatives get the news that their family member passed away. It is truly powerful, insightful and at times heartbreaking.
Beware that the series shows quite disturbing graphic images (uncensored), and some episodes has images of very extensive injuries and people on strong drugs. Though uncensored, faces and all sexual organs on screen will always be censored.
