An awful and inaccurate depiction of nursing/hospital life
This show isn't even good after a few whiskeys. As someone who works as a nurse's aide in a major hospital's CCU and is studying to become a nurse, please don't think that this terrible show represents nursing in any way shape or form.
The first major issue is that Jada Pinkett Smith, who plays this hospital's chief nursing officer (CNO) is actively involved in her hospital's units and provides patient care. In reality the CNO would sit in an office and attend board meetings all day to figure out how best to get Medicaid patients to give the hospital a good HCAHPS score. Oh, and Jada Pinkett Smith is super annoying in this and is perpetually sassy and smug to everyone.
I have to give the show credit for highlighting the role of nurses in a hospital setting, though. Too many shows like Grey's Anatomy and House show doctors doing basically everything and only introducing nurses as love interests, which is offensive. The problem though is that the nurses in this show, like Jada Pinkett Smith's character, are all stupid, annoying, badly written and poorly acted. These people seem to have a mental age of 11, especially that one younger nurse who can't understand the Japanese doctor and has an annoying whiny voice.
This show had me rolling my eyes constantly because it is full of stuff that would never actually happen in a real hospital. Haha, yes, the CNO would totally stick an overflow patient in a storage closet.
I'm only four episodes in and these are most of my complaints. I think I'm going to stop watching soon because my extraocular muscles are getting tired from all this eye rolling.
