911: The Bronx – Reality TV gets Real
Discovery channel does a superb job showing what happens at one of the toughest hospitals in America today. Many of us do not understand just what it’s like in some of these areas in which the hospital is the main source of medical care for the community. Daily visits of drug and alcohol abuse patients, gunshot and stabbing victims, STD’s, etc. Many of the stories you never hear on the news but for one of the busiest hospitals in America this is just a regular day.
Personally knowing many of the doctors and nurses at St. Barnabas I can attest to the accuracy of the series. The recordings were done on regular days at the ER and nothing was scheduled or exaggerated for TV. These were all real life incidences that occurred and each patient signed a release to be a part of the show. Every day I hear touching stories of the lives these doctors save. Having first hand experience in St. Barnabas hospital alongside one of the doctors gave me a whole new outlook on life. I give much credit to the brave, caring, and dedicated staff of St. Barnabas for there undying devotion to human life. It takes a unique person to devote their life to saving others and everyone at St. Barnabas does just that.
