It is obvious that the lead character has sex with a co-worker, outside of her marriage.

Sex scenes in some of the episodes but not all. They are very brief, typically fully clothed, with moaning and thrusting.

Nudity is seen in episodes 105 (extremely brief male bottom from a distance), 505, 506, 601, 602, and 705.


A character deliberately breaks her finger with a hammer.

Occasional scenes of violence but its very short, not prolonged and not in every episode.

This show is primarily set in a hospital where injuries can be seen, some bloody graphic scenes.

The show contains as much blood as ER or Grey's Anatomy.


Frequent use of 'fuck', 'shit' and so on. Cunt is also used on occasions.


Drug use almost in every episode. The lead character is addicted to prescription pain killers and snorts them aswell as in some voice-over's, descriptions of how to take them for a more effective high and effect from the drug. Drug use is a central feature to the series so is constant and not confined to one but a few.


Some scenes may be emotionally intense.

Seasons six and seven, despite humorous scenes, are very dark.

Suggested MPAA rating: Rated R for drug abuse, sexual content, nudity, bloody images, and language - some involving teens
