Obstruction of Justice - S4-E9

Continuity mistake: When Doug and Carol are making out in the exam room, their hands are around each other's waists. When Cynthia interrupts, suddenly his hands are around her face.

Ground Zero - S4-E6

Audio problem: When Greene is outside by the river explaining what happened to him, there are a couple of really bad sound edits in the background noise. These are really obvious as the sound suddenly changes, and for some reason the background noise in this scene is very loud, almost as loud as the dialogue; very strange.

A Hole in the Heart - S4-E22

Continuity mistake: When Doug and Carol are talking in the Pedes ICU, from one angle his head is against the back of the rocking chair, but from the other angle, his head is leaning forward. This continues for the scene, from shot to shot.

Do You See What I See? - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: When Carter enters the hospital with the patient Lenny, he suddenly has latex gloves on, when just a second before, when the scene was outside, he had no gloves on. There just wouldn't have been time for him to get them on.

Do You See What I See? - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: Within the space of what would appear to be more than 5 minutes in the ER, considering the continuous flow of action (starting with Kerry offering to get Pablo a taxi and ending with Dr. West examining the patient Lenny) the clock goes from 10:30 to 6:20. Shortly after that Dr. West pronounces Lenny dead, saying 13:38 (or 1:38).

When the Bough Breaks - S4-E4

Other mistake: When Doug and the nurses are watching the TV about a motorcycle accident, Kerry comes along and calls him Mark. This could be a character error, but as Doug responds 'yeah', and they talk, it indeed becomes a production error. In real life, the person would have corrected her. (00:07:15)

A Hole in the Heart - S4-E22

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning of the show, Doug is examining baby Josh and puts his stethoscope in his ears. Kerry says, "Your actions are totally irresponsible", and the shot goes to Doug. There is no sign of the stethoscope anywhere. The next shot, from behind him, shows it's around his neck. He then takes it off and the next shot should show it in his hands - but it's disappeared again.

Exodus - S4-E15

Continuity mistake: Carter rushes over to a Coke dispenser where there are four plastic jugs filled with ice and we see him dump all four of them into a plastic tub. The camera goes to Anna, who says "Carter, Carter" and then we see him dump the last two jugs again. When Carter reaches the patient, there is considerably more ice in the tub than he had to begin with.

Gut Reaction - S4-E18

Continuity mistake: In the OR, Peter is trying to save Dr. Swanson's life. Lizzie is standing in the corner watching. She has her right hand up to her chin, resting the elbow on her left hand, which is at her waist. Subsequent shots show the opposite - her left hand on her right.

A Bloody Mess - S4-E17

Continuity mistake: When the "accident" victims are brought in near near the start of the show, a woman wearing overalls is covered in masses of glistening blood in the closeup - but the wider shot shows less blood and it is much more dried on her clothing.

Obstruction of Justice - S4-E9

Continuity mistake: When Jeanie is in the office with Kerry, Anspaugh, and the union rep discussing her firing, her stethoscope changes position over her name tag several times within a few seconds.

Good Touch, Bad Touch - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: Near the start of the show, Peter is holding baby Reese upright when he opens the door to Carla's room, but as the shot changes to show him coming through the door, suddenly the baby is lying horizontally in his arms.

A Hole in the Heart - S4-E22

Visible crew/equipment: When the ER team is helping Victor's children and wife you can see a camera's reflection on Lydia's back when she is helping Victor's daughter.

Firewall

A Bloody Mess - S4-E17

Continuity mistake: Lizzie sees Dr. Morgenstern for the first time in the ER and she asks Kerry, "Who the hell was that?", and Kerry answers, "Our Chief of Emergency Medicine." Yet when he resigns in Episode 19, he tells Peter he's resigning as Chief of Surgery. Unless he held both positions, Kerry's answer could not be considered a character mistake, as she would have known what his position was.

Do You See What I See? - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: Even though Carter and Henry were outside in the snow when the patient Lenny arrived, and they had quite a bit of snow in their hair, when the shot goes to them entering the building, we don't see any snow on Carter and Henry - but there is still lots on the patient and the paramedics.

A Hole in the Heart - S4-E22

Continuity mistake: When Anna and Max are talking in the lounge, a piece of her hair is hanging over her ear when the shot is from behind her shoulder, but from the front angle, it's tucked smoothly behind her ear.

A Bloody Mess - S4-E17

Revealing mistake: Just before the bowl of pablum falls onto Peter's head, look carefully to see a white adult hand (looks female) holding baby Reese's spoon, and push the bowl so it flips over onto the actor's head.

Exodus - S4-E15

Continuity mistake: When Carter is doing the eye test on the old woman, between shots he is holding the glass in front of a different eye instantly.

Do You See What I See? - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: The paramedics bring Lenny by ambulance and are taking him out of the back of it - Carter picks up the chart from the gurney as the paramedic describes the patient - but suddenly the chart is back on the gurney - we should have seen Carter do this but we don't.

Something New - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: When Anna leaves the little boy Skyler's room, she has his chart under her right arm - but when she gets through the door and joins Doug in the hall, the chart has transferred to under her left arm, with no time for the change.
