The multiple Emmy Award-winning ER explores the inner workings of an urban teaching hospital and the critical issues faced by the dedicated physicians and staff of its overburdened emergency room.
While the names may change, the task remains the same: saving lives. In Season 9 of the landmark drama, John Carter is now the Chief Resident and his romantic attraction to Abby starts to turn serious - until Abby's psychiatrically challenged brother (Tom Everett Scott) shows up.
After 10 years at County General, John Carter has risen to a role of respect and leadership. His recently graduated colleague, Abby Lockhart finds that being a good doctor is as tough as being a good nurse. Chief of Staff Kerry Weaver remains tough - but the loss of her life partner and a bitter custody battle have worn on her.
Second year residents Abby Lockhart, Neela Rasgotra and Ray Barnett have now become the teachers. And Dr. Archie Morris (Scott Grimes) realizes he makes a better manager than a doctor. Dr. Pratt resolves issues with his family through his estranged father (Danny Glover), while a new attending doctor (John Leguizamo) poses as a patient to test the knowledge of the ER staff, causing friction with Dr. Kovac that leaves Abby caught in the middle.
Healing is teamwork and science. Instant decisions and best guesses. Joy one moment and tragedy the next. Being ready 24/7. And it's learning. Always learning. As a teaching hospital, Chicago's County General presents its weary students and dedicated doctors with the unexpected every day.
Life. Death. And chaos. It's all in a day's work in the overburdened Chicago ER. Season Seven brings a busload of sickened school kids, a crazed gunman whose shooting spree has already claimed 19 victims...and, of course, the guy in the opossum outfit who bit the man dressed as a kangaroo!
This riveting dramatic series portrays the dedication and passion of emergency-room doctors and medical staff in a Chicago teaching hospital.
How do you separate your personal life from your professional life? Not easily. And if you're on the emergency room staff of Chicago's County General Hospital, it may be impossible.
