That Time of Year - S6-E4

Continuity mistake: When Morton and Early are examining the guy with stomach pain and cramps, Morton's stethoscope is around his neck with the earpiece at his left and the chestpiece to his right, but in the closeup it's the opposite way around, then it's back to the original way.

Back-Up - S4-E21

Continuity mistake: When the cardiac patient is finally brought to the ER, and goes into full arrest number four, he's wheeled into treatment 1 which does not have a window on its door, but in the next shot from inside the room the door has a window, and when they're defibbing him, we can see the nurses' station outside the door, which means he's now in treatment 3, not 1.

The Old Engine Cram - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: When Squad 51 arrives at the training center, Johnny's turnout coat is open and we see that he's only wearing an undershirt, but when it's 18's turn at the sulfur trioxide, as Johnny's putting on his air mask he's wearing the blue uniform shirt under his turnout.

Computer Terror - S6-E9

Continuity mistake: While Johnny and Roy are with Dixie at the nurses' station, when Johnny looks for his paycheck in his shirt pockets, his right pocket's flap stays wonky, part in/part out in the closeup, but in the wide shot it's properly flat, then crooked, then straight again. Additionally, after Johnny finds the check in his wallet, he puts it into his left shirt pocket and points at Roy with his empty right hand, but when Early walks over Johnny has that check in right hand.

Computer Terror - S6-E9

Continuity mistake: During the scaffold rescue, when John climbs onto the platform he takes off his gloves as he starts to check the victim, but in the wide shot the stuntman is still wearing his gloves as he checks the victim.

The Game - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: In the ER staff lounge, when Early and Dixie are watching the game, there are five books lying on the TV with all their binding facing the right side in the closeups, but in the wide shots the books are facing the opposite way, with binding facing the left.

The Game - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: When the injured photographer is brought to the ER, Dix says treatment 7 and we see them heading into 7's door (which is around the corner from treatment 4 and 5, and has no color lines that run past its door) in the shot from the hallway. However, in the next shot from inside the treatment room, we can see they're not in treatment 7, but actually in treatment 4, note the red, green, and yellow lines on the hallway floor in front of its doorway, and treatment 7 has no lines that run past its doorway. When Dixie, Early, and Brackett step into the hallway it's even more obvious.

Firehouse Quintet - S6-E18

Continuity mistake: During the basketball game against 16, when Chet is finally in the game at halftime, 51's side of the court is at the right of the screen, but in the closeups of Chet's shot going into the hoop - scoring, we can tell by the wall and backboard that a bunch of his baskets are actually going into the hoop on the other side of the court, behind him.

All Night Long - S6-E21

Continuity mistake: When the woman from the car accident is in the ER, and goes into V-fib, Brackett, Morton, Roy and Johnny work on her. Johnny does chest compressions and they defib three times, then Morton takes over the chest compressions, but when Brackett is about to defib the fourth time we see Johnny's arms stopping the compressions, when in fact it was Morton doing them at that time.

How Green Was My Thumb? - S3-E17

Continuity mistake: Before they bring in the young girl who fell (with a dog bite), Dixie tells Brackett that she'll set up for her in treatment 1, and after Squad 95 brings her in, when Brackett and the paramedic (Donald Mantooth) leave the room we see that she is indeed in treatment 1, which is beside receiving. However, when Brackett takes the parents to see her, they go through the door that's between the double doors and treatment 2, which are on the opposite side of the hallway from treatment 1. Then in the next shot they're back in treatment 1.

Computer Error - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Early and Marcia's father stand outside her semi-private room, number 104, we see treatment 4 is right beside it. There are two problems with this bizarre situation. First, when Dixie gave Early the lab results about Marcia's possible pregnancy earlier, treatment 2 is right beside treatment 4, not the semi-private room 104. Second problem is that when Early and the parents walk into Marcia's room, in the interior shots we can see that there's a perpendicular wall right beside the doorway to its left, where the hallway ends.

On Camera - S5-E12

Continuity mistake: When the boy who fell over the cliff is brought into the ER, Dix tells them to bring him to treatment 3 and we see them at treatment 3's door, which is on the same side of the hallway as treatment 4, with the red line closest to it (hall has red, green and yellow lines on the floor which run the length of the hall) However, in the shot from inside the treatment room, they're not in treatment 3, but are actually in treatment 1. Note that we see treatment 4 directly across the hall, which means they're in treatment 1, and also see the yellow line is closest to the door which means it's on the opposite side of the hallway.

Snakebite - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: When Johnny, Roy, and Chet are at the site of the traffic accident, during this scene the shadows' lengths - from long, to short, back to long, and its directions keep changing drastically. Such as when Chet stands in the middle of the road, looking in the direction of the vehicle with the siren, his long shadow is cast to his left, but the oncoming vehicle also casts a shadow to its left (even though it's heading towards Chet), then in the next shot that vehicle's shadow has moved to its opposite side.

Snakebite - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: At the start, there's a long shot of the Land Rover driving down a long stretch of road towards the camera and then passing it. That road, landscape, and mountains are very distinctive. As Roy, John, and Chet continue talking and driving, when they reach the scene of a traffic accident, Chet sets up a flare behind the Land Rover and another flare behind the pickup truck, then Chet sees a car coming from the direction which the Land Rover was headed. The problem is that the road/landscape/mountains shown earlier in the long shot of the Land Rover, which had been driving from the opposite direction, is the same that's shown here, as Chet tries to stop the car. Then to top it off, when Chet first notices the second car in the distance, it's coming from the opposite direction of the first car, but once again the view is exactly the same.

An English Visitor - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: When Brackett is in his office talking to Patsy's manager, he's paged and then told, "Treatment room 2, STAT," and he answers, "On my way," but Brackett doesn't rush to treatment room 2, he goes to room 230 which is Patsy's room, and Early even calls for a code blue in room 230.

An English Visitor - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: When Brackett and Morton are with Patsy in her hospital room, there are two closeups of the Datascope 850, but there's an entirely different unit at the foot of Patsy's bed monitoring her EKG, not the Datascope 850. The same thing happens again later, when Brackett rushes in and Early tells him that Patsy was throwing more PVCs.

Weird Wednesday - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: When the man who doesn't speak English is in treatment 4, there's a closeup of the Datascope 850 monitor, and then the girl points to the EKG monitoring unit behind the gurney and asks Dixie why the thing is bouncing up and down. Problem is that the Datascope 850 is used by the paramedics and it's not actually in that treatment room. The treatment room has a Zenith Travenol unit.

Dealer's Wild - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Squad 51 is dispatched to the attempted suicide, the dispatcher states that he's in apartment 2A, and when Roy and John arrive at the scene the police officer also says he's in apartment 2A, but when they get to the second floor they pass apt 2A and go to the apartment at the end of the hall.

The Inspection - S5-E5

Continuity mistake: After Station 51 is dispatched to 'traffic accident, victim trapped', when they get the anti-shock suit on the boy Roy's watch reads 5:25. Then at the hospital, when Johnny asks Roy about the time, Roy looks at his watch and says "About 5:00."

[Henry, the dog who is never ever off the couch, whimpers.]
Johnny: [Talking to Henry, while typing on the typewriter.] Sorry. Didn't mean to disturb you. Acting kinda uppity aren't you? I may put you in the script. Yeah. A dog that does nothing. [Henry whimpers.] Just sits there. People like that, y'know. A schleppy dog. You'll schlep out on stage and schleep on the couch. Dumb dog! [Henry whimpers.] Making me feel guilty. Why don't you howl or something?

Mistakes

When Roy is electrocuted and falls from the roof, after Karen uses the defibrillator paddles on Roy, she lifts both paddles, looks at the EKG monitor and says "He's converted." How exactly could Karen have known that he's converted? It's impossible for the EKG monitor to show anything at all. Either the defib paddles have be in contact with Roy's body for the “quick-look” to get a reading, which they weren't, or the ECG electrode discs have to be on Roy's chest connecting him to the EKG monitor, and they weren't. As an aside, just watching Marco having problems attaching the air mask, and quickly glancing up towards the camera frustrated, then giving up is priceless.
