Heart Pounding Excitement! Unique, Challenging
`Unrestrained driver in a head-on Car vs Concrete Wall,' the EMT explains.
The patient is groggy .. The EMT pulls you aside and explains that his
girlfriend didn't make it. Now it's up to you to ensure that the patient pulls
through the physical trauma and personal tragedy.
`I did some
quick thinking,' the patient explains. `When I saw the carjackers coming I, um
... hid the loot.' He fidgets on the table. `Okay, Okay - I swallowed it.
Jewels. Two handfuls.' He leans in and whispers, `You'll help me, uh, get them
back out, right?'
You're facing a has-been disk jockey with a plastic smile. `Wonder why a
guy like me takes a 15 foot pike-and-tuck off the main stage of the Beck
concert?' In Code Blue, appearances may be misleading. What starts out as a
cut-and-dry case can quickly turn into something more ...

Some ER Staff
DR. MATT CLARK Attending Physician
Dr. Clark is one of the Attending Physicians
at Legacy Memorial, and your immediate supervisor. As a fellow doctor in the
trenches, Dr. Clark will sometimes scold, sometimes praise, and sometimes share
his own ER horror stories. (Played by Stephen Collins)
NURSE CAROLYN McGUIGAN
Nurse McGuigan is the veteran ER nurse on
the staff -- she's seen it all. Down to earth, but often impatient, McGuigan
believes that at this point in her career, if given the chance, she could treat
patients better than most of the doctors. A real tough cookie, but ready to be
your advocate when the going gets rough. (Played by Ann Dowd)
Some of Your Patients
CAROLYN DRAKE Nervous Mother
Carolyn Drake defines "soccer mom" -- protective, paranoid, and, well, loud.
When her daughter is hit with severe stomach pain, she leaps to conclusions,
fears the worst, and argues, argues, argues. Mrs. Drake may be one of those
characters you'll enjoy ejecting from the treatment room. (Played by Susan
MONTGOMERY "MONTY" RODRIGUEZ Senior Fry
A skinny, nerdish fellow, Monty is a "frequent flyer," or a patient who
frequently visits the ER, often with fake or vague symptoms. Treat Monty well,
and he'll be your best friend for life. (Played by Zachary Quinto)
