If you've never heard of or seen the show, Untold Stories of the E.R., here's your chance to get a heads up on what this show's about. The premise of the program is precisely what the title implies. A reenactment of actual events in Emergency Rooms all across the country.

The episodes involve actors portraying patients and hospital staff that recreate actual events that occur in the E.R. Most episodes begin with unusual, hard to diagnose symptoms or freak accidents that baffle the hospital staff.

Once the episode begins, the narrator and commentary from those at the original scene give the account of how the event unfolded and clues as to where the story will go. Oftentimes, the outcome is a surprise. The nurses, doctors, paramedics, and other medical staff provide personal accounts of each incident as well as the patients and their families.

The show usually consists of two separate events and follows each from the time they enter the E.R. until they leave and for some, provides follow up information as to their condition once leaving. The diagnosis in many instances is a complete surprise to staff as well as the audience. The progression from admissions to discharge may be condensed into a one hour episode but the patients portrayed on this program are not diagnosed in this time frame.

This show provides an inside look at the sometimes chaotic situations that the E.R. has to deal with on a surprisingly regular basis. While many of the episodes revolve around interesting patients with strange problems, some involve serious cases that give a glimpse into the unexpected tragedies people face everyday.

The show not only dramatizes medical emergencies from start to finish but also gives real accounts by the medical staff about how they handle each case and what they do to maintain themselves to prepare them for this very demanding job.
