More Info:

The groundbreaking new documentary In Case of Emergency from director Carolyn Jones (The American Nurse and Defining Hope) looks at how our country's biggest public health challenges-from the COVID-19 pandemic to the opiod crisis to gun violence and lack of insurance-collide in emergency departments. Nearly half of all medical care in the U. S. is delivered in emergency departments and nurses are on the frontlines of that care, addressing our physical and emotional needs and sending us back out into the world. In Case of Emergency follows emergency nurses and their patients in seven unique settings across the U. S. , from urban to rural, shedding light on some of the biggest health care crises facing Americans today, and the opportunity that emergency nurses have to help break a sometimes-vicious cycle for patients under their care.
