Hello, I know most healthcare people are not very fond of E.R., but I ws just wondering if anybody watched the last episode. The lady from "Sex and the Cityy" was a guest star. She played a... Read More

    like er okay although i think its a bit too physician centered. was a big abby the nurse fan in nursing school though. i think there needs to be a medical drama centered around nurses instead of doctors. i think we are way more attractive and interesting in real life :chuckle

    I thought tonights episode of ER was so good. Next week they are showing the premiere of yet another Law and Order show. I am an ER addict. I hate to admit it but I have learned so much from watching ER. Its getting to the point now where I can anticipate what meds, labs and etc. that they are going to order. I am so so glad that I am learning by osmosis.

    Malik is an LPN??? I had no idea.
    It was my understanding that Malik was an LVN. I know it isn't a big difference. I remember one episode when all of the nurses were on strike or calling off sick and he couldn't do something because he was "just an LVN"

    Another Law and Order show? Good grief, what next? "Law and Order: Planet Neptune Unit"


    A show centered around nurses? THAT would be original.... I may pitch that to the networks....

    A tough, 30-something CRNA, a street-wise LPN, a smart yet humble CNA, a couple of savy RN's....Hmmm

    No one steal my idea....

    I love E.R. the tv show, I love Trauma, Life in the ER, and I love the ER that I work in. And one of my new fav's that is always Tivo'd is HOUSE! House, is soo interesting and I have actually looked up some of the more esoteric diseases that he comes up with, and they are true. But, think about the wierd twists in real life, that end up causing grief for our patients. I just recently heard about starfruit killing people with renal deficiency!!! Who would of guessed that?
    And one last thought-- I have to say for every doc. who has ever made me feel less important, etc. I have had just as many patients, people in the grocery, bank, etc. Tell me "Thank you, bless you, and you are very special person for becoming a nurse" Those are the people who get me through all the others!!!

    She was MIA last week also, that was the first week in a long time that I have had a chance to watch when it was not a rerun. I remember seeing her on the first show of this season though or at least I think it was the first one. I loved her on Roseanne of course she was about the same age as me during that series.
    I saw her briefly on last week's show . . .

    Tonight's show was very good. I just wonder if they would have really allowed a doctor to fly with the injured girl and leave his post like that.

    Very good show though.

    Whats an LVN? I heard of LPN but not LVN.

    Isn't LPN and LVN a regional difference? Just asking...

    I still think ER is a good show.... It will probably come to an end soon though

    LPN = Practical Nurse
    LVN = Vocational Nurse

    Which all equals the same thing........Just some states call them LVN's and some call them LPN's.

    I don't watch TV much any more, so can't say I caught the show. I am all for shows the portray the medical profession as just that the medical PROFESSION! I am SOOOO tired of shows in which the doctor is sleeping with his nurse/receptionist/patient, or the nurse sleeping with the resident/coworker/patient or the storylines that make us all out to be catty, drug abusing, lazy, and/or fraudulant.

    I am just glad to hear that there is a show out there that is making us out to be competent, caring professionals that are doing our best in trying situations!

    Yep.. Malik is an LPN... and a damn good one....

    Remember when they were all the nurses were threatening to walk out & had a sick out or something.... and one of the doc's asked Malik why he didn't call in ... he said "I am an LPN, it doesn't get any cheaper than me" ... or somthing like that....

    What about Neela Rascotra?? and Frank??? And why does Chuney have so few lines?? :angryfire

    They are playing the first episode of "ER" on TNT right now.....It seems so, "retro"....

    Do you guys know that Frank was in the very first episode??? And he was playing the same character, a Chicago police officer....


    Personally if I had a hottie like Kovac running around my house, work would be the last thing on my mind...lol...Sam won't go med school...lol
    OOOOH thank you. I thought I was in the twilight zone yesterday a.m. I just got satelite direct TV. All of the station numbers are different. I tuned in to what I thought was TNT. As I watched the show for a few minutes I just didn't understand what was happening. It seemed as if the feed was coming in from Planet Neptune and I had been taken back in time. Alas, I didn't burn anymore brain cells on trying to figure out what was happening. I just turned it off. Thanks. Your post cleared the mini-mystery that was floating in the arachnid spaces of my mind. :chuckle
