Any one here work in an ER that was featured on a Discovery show?

  1. Any of the shows like Resident life or Trauma: Life in the ER? That would be so cool.

    wow! I really messed up the spelling in my title! I hope people still want to view and answer this thread even though I sound like a moron.

    I have to say the "NE1" thing really had me puzzled.

    The closest I've come is that I'm doing a clinical now where they filmed one of those baby shows on Discovery Health Channel (those are the ones I usually try to avoid).

    lol, you're funny!

    I wrote NE1 becuase I was afraid I would run out of room to write my topic. I meant anyone. Sorry about that.

    What type of nursing are you going into?
    Is taht a picture of you? It looks like Jude law! :chuckle
    Anyway, that is really neat that they were filmng a show, even though it was a baby story and not Trauma or Resident Life. What year are you in now?
    nice talking to you!

    Not sure what the name of the show is, but while I was on assignment in CA The hospital there was allowing filming to be done by Discovery. The hospital is Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital in Valencia, CA. They had a LOT of trauma pts, helicopter there all the damn time. Just a mile off the 5 freeway and 25 miles north of L.A.--very busy ER.

    You're right, it was Jude Law (he's a hottie). But I've since changed my avatar.

    I'm finishing up my 2nd semester. I'm graduating in December!!!!

    Six years ago working in Detroit, NYT tv was riding with EMS filming for Paramedic's. We had signs posted all over the ER- Attention NYT tv filming in this area your presence is consent to appear- or something to that effect. My self ending up appearing for about 15 seconds as they brought a trauma pt in.

    Man! My cable company does not provide discovery Helath. We only get discovery (reg.) and I tried getting the digital cable and we still did not get discovery hleath and then when we tried to get a satalitte dish, we were told that we were too far into the woods to get a good signal so I am very frustrated. I want discovery helath so bad!! I can't wait til Comcast is allowed to provide cable to my area. So far we have a monopoly. Grr. :angryfire

    Don't even get me started about my cable company! They have overcharged us and p*ssed with us so many times that I am ready to scream!:angryfire We, too, tried to get Satellite because we had it before and loved it, but the trees in the back of our house (rental apartment) are too thick for the signal to get through. They think they could get one off the very peak of the house, but we don't want to take any chances with hurting the brand new roof the landlord just put on. So, we are stuck with overprice, overadvertised, crappy cable!
