Emergency! (1972)

Grateful - S5-E21

Continuity mistake: When they pull Mrs. Merkle from under the wrecked car in the restaurant, the BP cuff is not visible around her right arm, but in her closeup she has the wide BP cuff around her arm with the gauge facing up, then in the wide shot once again the BP cuff is not visible.

Grateful - S5-E21

Continuity mistake: When they pull the man with chest pains from the pickup truck, Dixie says treatment 3, which is opposite the receiving entrance and on the same side of the hall as the nurses' station, closest to the red line on the hallway floor, but when Dixie leaves the treatment room it's at the side of the hallway closest to the yellow line, and since there's a window on its door we know it's actually treatment 1 that he's in, not 3.

Grateful - S5-E21

Continuity mistake: At the restaurant, when they begin to work on getting Mrs. Merkle out from under the car, Vince sets the Biophone down on the table, and there's a netted, red glass candle on the table, but in a following closeup the candle's net has vanished and it's pinkish clear glass now. Other items on the table change as well.

Grateful - S5-E21

Continuity mistake: When Marco and Chet use the jaws to lift the car off the victim, Roy begins to get her vitals, then it cuts to Captain Stanley on the Biophone saying, "Vitals second victim, pulse is 120, respiration's 30, she's pale and clammy," but it's not until quite a few shots later that Roy actually shouts those vitals to Captain Stanley.

Grateful - S5-E21

Character mistake: At the restaurant, when Captain Stanley's on the Biophone with Rampart, Brackett asks, "Is there any evidence of external hemorrhaging on your second victim?" and then Cap responds, "We can only see superficial cuts at this time... Pupils are equal and reactive, negative on the IV at this time," as if Brackett ordered an IV, but Brackett never said anything to Squad 51 about any IV.

Continuity mistake: After Roy finds Willy, when he calls Captain Stanley to help get Willy out, Roy's on Willy's left and Captain Stanley's on his right as they rush out, but in the next shot they've switched, Captain Stanley is now on Willy's left and Roy's on his right, just before the explosion.

The Indirect Method - S5-E6

Continuity mistake: When Squad 51 is dispatched to 'man down', as the squad heads out of the apparatus bay, the engine we see parked in the bay is the old Crown from seasons 1 and 2, instead of their current Ward LaFrance.

The Indirect Method - S5-E6

Revealing mistake: At the house fire, after Roy and Johnny go upstairs to rescue the invalid woman, Captain Stanley and Chet head to the front door, and just before Cap kicks in the front door, we can see that the door isn't actually closed, it's just ajar.

Pressure 165 - S5-E7

Continuity mistake: At the decompression chamber on Catalina Island, after John and Roy introduce themselves to Dr. Scott, the doctor removes the stethoscope from around his neck and puts it down, but in his closeup it's still around his neck, then in the wide shot it's gone, only to return in closeup again.

One of Those Days - S5-E9

One of Those Days - S5-E9

Continuity mistake: Dispatched to the structure fire are Station 51, Engine 36, Engine 116, and Truck 3. While Johnny and Roy are searching the rooms for the young girl, it cuts to a shot of guys from 9, and later there are also shots of 28's and 19's guys, even though none of their companies were called to this incident. These are shots from previous episodes including 3x7, "Promotion."

Visible crew/equipment: When Crockett leaves Medford's room with the glass that Medford drank from, there's a mirror over the sink, and in the mirror's reflection we can see the camera's moving shadow on the wall, right beside Crockett's reflection.

The Lighter-Than-Air Man - S5-E8

Continuity mistake: When Station 51 is dispatched to the truck fire, as Captain Stanley responds to the dispatcher Roy and Johnny get into the squad, but we see Marco, Mike and Chet head back to the kitchen instead of getting on the engine, then we see both the engine and squad responding to the incident.

Simple Adjustment - S5-E10

Continuity mistake: When Ruthie is wheeled into the ER, Dixie tells the attendants to put her in the treatment room where Dr. Early's waiting, and they wheel her into treatment 2 which has a windowless door, but when they're in the room the door has a window, which means she's in treatment 1, not 2. Plus the fact that both treatment rooms are set up differently.

Simple Adjustment - S5-E10

Other mistake: When the woman from the salon is brought into the treatment room she's unconscious, but as they transfer her from the ambulance stretcher to the hospital gurney, she lifts her left arm from under the stretcher bar and then also positions it on the gurney.

Tee Vee - S5-E11

Character mistake: When the guy who was injured in the manhole is brought to treatment 6, he's transferred onto the ER's gurney and we see Carol taking his pulse, but then she tells Early, "Pulse 120, respiration 24," even though she never checked his respiration rate.

Emergency! mistake picture

Details - S4-E12

Revealing mistake: When Squad 51 leaves Rampart, in the first interior shot facing Roy as John says, "Yeah, I'll tell ya, when it hits ya... Boy when I met Valerie it hit me," through the back window we can see movement at the back of the squad. But in the shot facing Roy when John says, "So that's that... That's exactly how it is," through that back window we can actually see a crew member's face (sideways), who has a mustache, right behind John's head, as he's riding on the back of the moving squad. It's so funny, have a look.

Inferno - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: When Deke comes into the ER with the two burned firemen and speaks to John and Roy, the window behind them is on the same side as the ER's receiving entrance. Notice that outside the window there's one of those blue metal shades at the top, which does not exist in the exterior shots of that side of the ER.
