Plot Synopsis

Using re-enactments and first-person interviews with patients, family and medical personnel, UNTOLD STORIES OF THE E.R. chronicles stories of real-life trips to the emergency room. Each one-hour episode of this series features three cases, including: an inmate who is brought into the ER with a fever of 108; a woman who has been eating toliet paper complains about stomach pains; a mother who brings her chronically ill six-year-old son to the ER, causing the doctor to suspect she may be poisoning him; a homeless woman complaining of stomach pains, who finds out she's in labor; a husband walks into the ER and stabilizes his wife's condition by touching her forehead; a multiple personality disorder patient comes in with strange markings all over her body and chest; a man is rushed to the ER with a 16-inch bar protruding from his neck; a patrol officer lies in shock when his legs were badly mangled after being slammed between his cruiser and a speeding driver; a woman is dragged out of a house fire and has a heart attack in the ER; a schizophrenic patient believes he has someone else's face; an untrained medical student must deliver a baby when he is mistaken for a doctor; and many more medical maladies and melodrama.
