"Haven't I seen you somewhere...?"

  1. Any nurses out there who have "starred" in one of the reality shows like "Trauma", or "Maternity Ward"? Just curious as to what the experience was like. I also thought it might be kind of fun to see some of our friends in action if possible. Our hospital was featured in an MSNBC segment called "Heartland ER", but neither me nor my unit were seen (oh, well...)

    There was a segment done for one of the shows featuring our shock trauma unit. This was several years ago and I can't even recall the name of the show. Lucky for me I don't work shock trauma.

    One episode was actually filmed in the ER I work in. I avoided the Camera. The day was actually a bit crazy, and it was just easier to take care of the patients and stay out of the camera angle...

    Trauma: Life in the E.R. was in our hospital for a month, and on our floor for 2 weeks a couple of years ago around Ky Derby time. I was briefly on camera a couple of times, because they were following one of my patients- 16 yr old CHI. They followed his progress from the E.R., to SICU, then to my floor. It was funny, because suddenly, all of the residents got hair cuts and shaved regularly during that time, and the hospital was very well staffed. The camera crew were very nice, and did a very good job of staying out of our way. It was fun to watch it on T.V. after it aired 6 months later, and my family was excited to see what I do at work.

    Here is the thing that gets me about those shows...It seems as though the doctors are featured and not too many of the nurses. In maternity ward, one might think the nurses don't even do anything. I still enjoy watching those shows, however, and none of them have yet to visit my little corner of the world...

    YOU NAUGHTY, EVIL girl you! Wouldn't you just LOVE that??? Ugh I would HAVE to arrange to be SICK that day! Fortunately, BABY STORY apparently is NOT interested in rainy Seattle as a backdrop for their fairy-tale show. Too bad, sucks to be me, I guess.
