The series shows how emergency room staffs do their best to help patients, but these real-life stories are sensationalized for entertainment purposes aren't intended to be educational.
The dramatizations feature patients yelling, screaming, and/or trying to attack emergency room staff. Burns and bloody injuries (cuts, bullet wounds, etc.) are clearly visible; some patients have knives and other objects penetrating their heads, necks, chests, and other areas of the body. Bloody surgeries featuring blood shooting out of veins, organs hanging out of the body, and other traumas are also reenacted. Some patients die.
The breasts and genitals of patients who are in various stages of undress are completely blurred. Occasional births, as well as discussion of pregnancy and birth control.
Reenactments contain scenes in which patients use inappropriate language, but words are bleeped, and it's difficult to make out what they're saying.
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Frequent references to alcohol-related accidents, drug addiction, and potential drug overdoses. Patients in pain are often given morphine; over-excited patients are often given Ativan. The importance of quitting smoking is discussed.
