Description

"It is as open and revealing as a filmed experience has ever been. You look misery in the eye and you realize there's nothing to be afraid of. By the end we are so thoroughly involved, that tears well up, because we simply have no other means of responding to the intensity of this plain view of the ordinary activities." —New Yorker

"The chief characteristics of all Wiseman films - and the source of their tremendous emotional impact - is his instinctive sympathy for people who must confront their specific, human effects of vast, impersonal human forces." —Life

Hospital shows the daily activities of a large urban hospital with the emphasis on the emergency ward and outpatient clinics. The cases depicted illustrate how medical expertise, availability of resources, organizational considerations, and the nature of communication among the staff and patients affect the delivery of appropriate health care.
