What's it like to be an ER doctor?

Perhaps someone in your family always wanted to be a doctor…but does anyone ever really want to be an emergency room doctor? Is this the glamour of practicing medicine?

Shootings…knife wounds…near drownings…animal attacks…automobile accidents. That's a typical night in the emergency room at St. Joseph's Hospital. What kind of doctor wants to do that?

The kind that wants to save lives…even when things seem hopeless. What's it like, on a Saturday night in Phoenix, to have your clients lined up in the hall and they're all bleeding? Will there be enough staff? Will there be enough room? Will there be enough time? Those are some of the questions asked as part of the professional life of an emergency room doctor.
