1.INT.RUBY GENERAL HOSPITAL - NIGHT DOCTOR WILLIAM JONES is sitting in his hospital chamber. The room is dimly lit and has an air of gloominess surrounding it. There is a certificate from Harvard University placed behind his desk on the wall. He seems to be fairly young with not a lot of experience. His face shows signs of tiredness because of odd working hours. On his desk is a file of the surgeries he performed today. There is also a 40" inch television across the room with CNN news on. NURSE CLAIRE Doctor Jones we need you in the emergency room right away. We have someone with gunshot wounds requiring immediate attention. DOCTOR WILLIAM JONES (Mumbling)I was about to call it a night..but i guess this is what we are paid to do. what seems to be the problem? NURSE CLAIRE We have someone with two gunshot wounds near the kidney. The patient seems to have lost a lot of blood...we need to hurry. The doctor gets up wears his coat and follows the nurse to the E.R. 2.INT.EMERGENCY ROOM - NIGHT The E.R. seems to be filled with white light. With doctors and nurses running around all over the place trying to help patients. There are four cubicles in the emergency room three of them with patients being operated on. The fourth cubicle seems to be getting prepared by a couple of nurses for an incoming patient. NURSE CLAIRE Doctor right this way(leading doctor Jones to the E.R.). The patient seems to have lost a lot of blood...you need to immediately remove the bullet before it ruptures the kidney. DOCTOR WILLIAM JONES (Flustered)I know what i need to do, take me to the patient.(wearing his latex gloves) (CONTINUED)
