What we know about American hospitals from American soap operas? Some examples of behaviors which we won’t find in Polish medical institutes.

Who don’t see only one episode of House M.D.? Sometimes only because they were curious any case or part with favorite MD. Lot of persons like to share love and healthy tragedies with actors in Grey’s Anatomy and ER. And after hard time in work they want to luxuriously lay in their bed and laugh with another episode of favourite series. Why we love that soap operas so much? Is that in few percent real?

Unfortunately – not at all.. With all fresh hospital soap operas appear capation that one of the main figure is based on real someone from past. That same in Poland dental corner welcome. I guess that if anyone want to make a series about our national specialists doing dental treatment abroad he could find several persons who want to tell their tale. Like when we mention about cases. There is few stories that can be use in shows, but they are mostly sad. Many people are looking for anything that prosaic as dental treatment abroad. And it is one of the reasons why we are waiting for American or English soap operas. They are so much funnier than Polish one. Don’t forget that it is specific kind of humor cause it is based on verbal and situation humor not just on popular and well known scenes. Next case is cast. Actors and actress in series are all young and refreshed day by day. In regular hospital it is impossible, because MDs have night change, all day change and after that they want to go back to home and try to live a typical life.

Many times they cannot and start to live alone.

Lastly is something visual. Medical institutes in series are simply pretty. Great spaces, plants and many pleased persons. In normal hospital there is queue with many sick people and in series we have hospital where there is one sick main character for this episode. That one looks so nice but I suggest that this can’t be real. Even if it is based on facts. A 100 percent true facts are only in Documentary.So when another week we will watch medical series don’t forget about above cases. Don’t forget that Polish hospitals will never be the same like that beautiful one in American TV show.
