There is a horse carriage without any people on it walking towards violence. It would be implied that the horse dies given the situation.

Somewhat. Not technically a hospital, but there's basically a scene in a medical tent/emergency medical station set up in a department store. There's people on stretchers, a body with their guts spilled out of their abdomen passes the camera briefly.

No full nudity, however the movie starts with two characters in bed that are implied to be naked, but everything important is covered by a blanket or underwear. Bare shoulders are shown and the characters joke about filming the woman's chest.

Multiple instances of blood and gore. At one point, a character is found to be impaled, and the other characters audibly pull them off of being impaled though the camera is pointed away. Another character bleeds out of their eyes before vomiting blood, and their abdomen explodes behind a sheet so you see silhouette and the splatter. Just before that, the characters are in an emergency medical station and a corpse with its guts ruptured is in center frame for a moment.
