The lives, loves and losses of the doctors and nurses of Chicago's County General Hospital.
Multiple Third Watch actors have shown up on ER in smaller roles despite the fact the shows have crossed over twice. While it's understood both shows are produced by the same people and tend to use the same actors (supernatural and x files are an example) and some characters never appear in both shows simultaneously but rather before Third Watch aired, the decision to collide their universes has resulted in a few accidental plot holes.
Dr. Susan Lewis:

On at least four occasions during the series characters refer to LVN's (licensed vocational nurses). Only Texas and California use that designation. Other states, including Illinois, designate this level of nursing Practice as LPN (licensed practical nurse).
A way to determine the difference between time zone broadcasts of the 1997 live episode is to look at the scene with the man on the gurney who loses it and threatens people with a scalpel. In the east coast broadcast seen by most of the country, the scene went as scripted. In the second broadcast, the man accidentally knocks the instruments off the table and recovered by holding out his arms to keep the others away, still in character.
