Trauma: Life In the ER takes place throughout various emergency rooms all across the U.S. including Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Detroit, Orlando, Portland, Ore. and others. This TV series originally aired on TLC and premiered in 1997. It comes with a warning before the show begins stating that parental discretion is advised because of the graphic nature. This show will often include blood, individuals in distress (sometimes involving children), and other gory situations such as death. This show is not for those who become queasy or weak at the sight of blood or other intense situations. Be advised you most likely will see a person in pain and discomfort. Although this is a show about the ER, it will often contain more than just what happens in the ER. It will take the viewer on location of accidents, homes, the streets, or wherever someone may be suffering and need medical attention. Sometimes an ER helicopter will be dispatched to the location of the medical emergency, and the camera will follow parts of this journey. Trauma: Life In the ER follows the doctors and nurses daily job, but they will sometimes include parts of the doctors or nurses everyday life outside of their career. Often times you will hear a short story about the home life of one of the individuals. Such as their family, pets, hobbies, different activities or places they enjoy, or anything else pertaining to their life. More than likely during these breaks in the show it can become lighthearted and even have a humorous undertone. This will present the doctor or nurse as not only an everyday hero for their community, but also a normal everyday person who has a life outside of the ER.
