OMG I freaking love this show, but i defintely cringe a bit, but damn its good! I can’t turn away. It hits close to home because over the summer we’ve been dealing with my Future Mother-In-Law health issues. Then we also had recent experiences with FH step dad’s illness (RIP). This was our summer of being in & out of the hospital/ER. You get a deep appreciation for the staff. I don’t know how they do it. Seriously these are the everyday heros that just aren’t celebrated enough.
Check this out is awesome. http://www.bbcamerica.com/content/447/index.jsp’ defer=’defer
This 14-part observational documentary that the London Times calls “Television that makes you grateful to be healthy and proud to be human,” captures the daily life-or-death dramas that take place in one of the busiest ER departments in England. Every day, 60,000 people enter the ER and around 350 of them are treated at King’s College Hospital, London. With a staff of 140, the hospital serves as a major trauma center dealing with the most serious cases of stabbings, shootings and major accidents as well as a community hospital dealing with its fair share of sores, cuts and minor injuries.
With unprecedented access to the hospital, the production team rigged over 14 miles of camera cable with 70 remote cameras strategically placed around its major trauma department. After filming 24 hours a day for 28 days.
