I'm sure a ton of us have watched Trauma:Life in the ER at some point on TLC. Did anyone out there happen to have taped any of the episodes? I think it would be amusing to see an episode or two filmed at places I interviewed at and/or matched. TLC still runs the show, but pretty infrequently. If you have any episodes on tape, or know where I can find them, please let me know.

They run Trauma on Mondays at 8pm. Its part of the few shows on TV I do watch.

Other fun things are The Critical Hour and Resident Life on Discovery Health.

You can order episodes from TLC and NYT Television.

One of my medical school's affiliated hospitals was the site where 13 of the Code Blue episodes were filmed. The nurses were watching an episode one day while we were rounding in the surgical critical care unit. It was kind of neat because the attending I was rounding with (chief of trauma) was on TV while we were rounding. Some of the patient's families saw it and commented on it. (I'm not so sure watching the thing in the unit was the best decision the nurses made!)
