Code Black: a Documentary Film

SonoSite congratulates director Ryan McGarry, MD, and the entire CODE BLACK team for winning these prestigious awards: Best Documentary Feature, Los Angeles Film Festival 2013; Audience Favorite Documentary, Aspen Filmfest 2013; Best Documentary Feature, Hamptons International Film Festival 2013; People’s Choice Award, Denver STARZ Film Festival 2013.

CODE BLACK follows first-time filmmaker McGarry and a team of fellow L.A. County Hospital residents who battle burnout and bureaucracy while transitioning from the chaos of the old L.A. County ER to the new ER and its jarring realities of modern medicine. Under a daily siege of overcrowded waiting rooms, regulations, and paperwork, the residents struggle to improve patient care while dealing with crushing disappointments and moments of heart-soaring triumph.

SonoSite is proud to be one of CODE BLACK's sponsors.
