As the celebration of Emergency Nurses Week continues, the spotlight on emergency nurses shines even brighter on Wednesday with the premiere of “In Case of Emergency” – a feature length documentary directed by Carolyn Jones with the support of the Emergency Nurses Association.
The documentary follows 16 emergency nurses from across the United States to paint a startling picture of emergency departments stretched to the breaking point as our nation’s biggest public health challenges – from COVID-19 to the opioid crisis to gun violence to lack of insurance – collide in emergency departments. With nearly half of all U.S. medical care delivered in EDs, emergency nurses are at the forefront, not just during a pandemic, but every day to address a patient’s physical and emotional needs.
The film debuts to a nationwide audience as part of a virtual event hosted by distributor Kino Lorber that includes a live question-and-answer session featuring Jones, several nurses featured in the film and ENA representatives.
