From heart attacks to gaping wounds, fierce pains, gun shots, and car accidents, there's never a dull day in the ER. Dedicated doctors, nurses, and technical staff provide innovative and effective emergency treatments for all kinds of trauma patients. Each episode features a different hospital; and the unique situations their staffs face; as teams make split-second decisions to save lives.
I do not condemn this program. In fact I do watch it from time to time. Everything you see is real, no acting no BS about it. What I find disturbing about it is the producers claim that they only show patients who give their consent. I don't buy it one bit. The reason is simple. The first time I watched it, a man was brought in unconscious after being hit by a car, the man unfortunately died on the table without regaining consciousness. Now how could they possibly get that man's consent to show him on camera, to show his face, to use his name, I don't think so. And to top it off, the man's wife was in the waiting room not knowing what has happened, when the sawbones walks in to tell the bad news the cameras were rolling capturing all the shock and grieving. I have seen many more examples like it. Now if that is not exploitation, someone will have to explain to me what is. For this reason I only give 5/10.
