All of our country’s biggest public health challenges—from COVID-19 to the opioid crisis to gun violence to behavioral health and lack of insurance—collide in emergency departments (EDs). Nearly half of all medical care in the U.S. is delivered in EDs, 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 is a documentary that 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.
