Let It Snow - S15-E9

Other mistake: Sam is in the bathroom washing her hands. As she goes to leave, 'Ladies Room' is on the glass of the door, however it is oriented facing the inside of the room. It should appear backwards so it would be seen correctly from the outside, not inside. (00:39:52)

Suggested correction: This shot opens on a closeup of Sam's hands under the faucet, as she stands at the sink washing her face, in front of the mirror on the wall over the sink. Watch as the camera faces the mirror, so it's Sam's reflection drying her face and walking out the bathroom door. "Ladies room" is printed on the exterior side of the door's glass window. From the interior side the words are reversed, but since the camera faces the mirror, viewers see the reflection of the words the right way, not reversed.

What We Do - S15-E18

Revealing mistake: Sam's mother is standing at an open window, smoking a cigarette. The outside of the window is covered with some sort of frosted glass or ice or something (making it pointless to have it open anyway). Two shots later, we see her close the window from a different angle. This time, the window is clear and you can see the brick building next door. (00:19:36)

Time of Death - S11-E6

Audio problem: When the team is moving Mr. Metcalf to a different room, Luca says, "Let's go people. Prime the rapid infuser." Abby says, "subclavian on the right." The shot shows the a close up of the patient's face (Mr. Metcalf). Immediately, that 4-second shot with audio repeats itself, before moving on to the next. (00:12:40)

A Boy Falling Out of the Sky (a.k.a. Shifts Happen) - S9-E15

Plot hole: Dr. Lewis is talking to a patient about pets, and how she is "banned from a pet store" because she isn't good with pets. She explains that the only pet she ever had was sea monkeys as a child. But, in the earlier seasons, she had a cat. We actually saw the cat at one point when her sister was staying with her and let the cat out of the apartment by accident.

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished - S9-E13

Character mistake: Dr. Corday finishes assessing a gun shot victim, then goes to the next trauma room to assess another. The steady cam follows her. She makes sure not to contaminate her gloves on the door, opening it with her elbows, but then goes straight to touching the next victim. Of course, in real life, she'd change gloves first. The shot never changes, so there's no chance of her changing gloves off camera. (00:12:30)

The Longer You Stay - S8-E2

Continuity mistake: Inside the first 10 minutes, Greene finishes a trauma and his shift and heads upstairs to take Ella from Corday, so she can start her shift. Next, we go back down to the ER, where Benton and Finch are assessing a trauma victim. In the background you see Greene checking an X-ray film, but he has meant to already leave with his baby.

Benton Backwards - S7-E4

Continuity mistake: The timeline makes no sense. Carter goes home early and is working out in daylight at home. Kerry needs to leave at 6pm and Mark has a hockey game at 8pm. Luka and Abby are out on a date, after dark, when they are mugged, next Mark is at the hockey game. But shortly after, Kerry is getting ready to leave when Carter comes back to finish his shift. After that, Elizabeth is back in the ER working. Nothing in this timeline makes any sense.

Exodus - S4-E15

Continuity mistake: During the last 2 minutes, Jerry is patronizing Dr. Waver. As he walks away, you see Dr. Greene (who has not been in this episode until now) walk across the hall in the background. A few moments later, outside, after Dr. Carter finishes chatting with the fire chief, he bumps into Dr. Greene outside. Dr. Greene is on his way in for his shift starting in 5 minutes and explains that he is coming straight from the airport. (00:43:22 - 00:44:50)

All in the Family - S6-E14

Character mistake: This has happened a few times before on this show. At the beginning of the episode, they are having a very loud party in the ER. There is no possible way this could ever happen in a real hospital. Even during an extremely quiet period, which rarely happens at County General, it would be extremely rude and unprofessional for patients. There's no way Kerry would be OK with such activities.

All in the Family - S6-E14

Continuity mistake: This episode is an instant continuation of episode 13. At the beginning of the episode, Kerry is walking in and asks if Mark is still on. Carol says he left at 8 for a double date. However, in the last episode, Mark was already at a restaurant with Elizabeth and their parents when Abby pronounced a patient's T.O.D. As 19:19.

Power - S5-E20

Revealing mistake: As Dr. Benton is leaving the nursery, there are two people who are supposed to be walking down the hall. But, it is very obvious that they are waiting on their mark, waiting for the go ahead before they start walking. (00:38:40)

CaƱon City - S12-E1

Continuity mistake: Sam and Luka are driving to Colorado, presumably in a hurry, to try to find her missing son, Alex. While their driving in the daytime, you can notice inconsistencies in the traffic and road. They are driving on the interstate, but getting passed up by semi trucks. The trucks are not slowly passing them either. It's almost as if they are stopped and the trucks are whirring past them. Then in one shot you see a car change to the left and start to pass, but when the camera angle changes, you see Sam passing up a semi truck at a high rate of speed. A moment later, as their still chatting, an exterior shot of the car shows them changing to the left lane to pass a truck, however the lines in the road are yellow, meaning they are not on the interstate anymore.
