ER: Ambush

When a documentary video crew invades the ER to follow Dr. Greene and his co-workers through a typical day, everyone is self-conscious at first, but gradually becomes accustomed to being taped. While the cameras watch, Greene treats a musician with esophageal cancer. Dr. Carter is embarrassed when the cameras catch his undignified encounter with a patient. Newly arrived from England, surgical resident Dr. Elizabeth Corday confuses everyone with her unfamiliar medical terms. Dr. Ross and Nurse Hathaway treat a toddler who appears to have been bitten by the family dog. Greene and Dr. Del Amico treat a man who received a severe injury while trying to save a teenage boy from a vicious gang beating. When Dr. Morgenstern becomes suddenly ill while cameras are in the room, Dr. Weaver is concerned about his privacy.
