Sorta. A bunch of people die in a claustrophobic way, but it's unclear if they die from being crushed or from something else. They're shown stuck in a tight space, and that shot is pretty intense, but it's over quickly and their deaths happen off screen.

Edit: other people are saying they do in fact get crushed and that their deaths are only barely off screen. This isn't something I noticed but I probably missed it, it's apparently very quick

It is a medical drama. It is not excessively gory but if you are pretty squeamish i would avoid it. There are many episodes where patients obtain massive injuries.
