Saturday Night in a Dallas ER

Total Running Time: 5:52 min.

At Parkland Memorial Hospital, there are over 30,000 injury-related visits to the emergency room every year - nearly half of which involve drugs or alcohol. This verite segment goes inside Parkland's ER to examine the consequences of injuries sustained through substance abuse, including: a stabbing victim who was high on cocaine when he was attacked; a man who snapped his ankle after a night of drinking; an underage accident victim who "celebrated" his 20th birthday by downing (by his estimate) 15-20 whisky shots; and a Level 1 trauma patient who dies in the OR (tests reveal he'd been under the influence of marijuana).
