At least one patient character mentions having had a drug addiction, and as such refuses anesthesia, in the fear she might relapse.

At least two episodes have it as the main topic (male and female). Multiple episodes where medical procedures or surgery is required. A male patient deliberately self harms. The dialogue and drama may be triggering in these episodes too. It is implied in more than one episode that implies suffering is the price of sexual desire. Women are shamed by themselves and others (but also stood up for.)

There are cases that result in amputation. One episode in season one almost ends with amputation of a character's leg, but the leg is ultimately saved.

The main character's younger brother died when they were kids, falling to the ground from the roof of an old train cart. The fall is shown, and the body after it hits the ground, but the initial impact is not shown. One episode features a boy that is diagnosed with a severe form of cancer. It is alluded that nothing can be done, and that he will ultimately die. This is not shown on screen however. A pair of conjoined twins undergo surgery to separate them, which unintentionally results in one of the girls' death. The scene is very emotionally upsetting.

No ghosts per day, but the main character does often see his younger brother, who died when they were children. The brother often appears when the main character is distressed.

A small scene occurs where the main character (doctor Murphy) is sitting and waiting for a patient to release gas, an indicator that her bowels are working properly after gastrointestinal surgery.

The series is a medical drama, so most of the series takes place at a hospital.

Several characters have different forms of cancer at different stages. Some recover, others don't.

The main character is autistic, and experiences meltdowns. These might be interpreted as anxiety attacks by some, as they include heavy breathing, yelling, flailing, crying, and general emotional distress.

A man steps in front of a bus, and is run over. The scene cuts away just before the bus hits, but two characters reacting to the death are shown instead, who are obviously distressed.

The main character suffers abuse as a child from his father, mainly grounded in his behavior as autistic. As an adult, he is subject to scrutiny and discrimination from some of his co-workers, but also patients.

However, bright lights are sometimes shown from the perspective of the autistic character, and are shown as especially uncomfortable.

A lesbian woman dies in a bus accident, and as a result of an accident, made by a resident at the hospital. The mistake was not intended, obviously, but the woman does anyway.

Not with any bad intentions however. An episode called “she” is about the main character who is autistic struggling to understand his transgender patient undergoing a gender confirmation surgery. He does misgender her many times in the episode. He ends up accepting that even if he doesn’t understand, he can relate to the alienation the girl feels, and respects her as a girl.
