I have been hearing from those professionals in the donation and transplant community that "Three Rivers" is a "joke" and "not accurate". They are nit picking the minute clinical errors in the show while glossing over the important core message of the show that there is a shortage of organs for transplant and over 104,000 Americans are waiting for a life saving organ transplant - 18 people die daily without receiving their life saving transplant.
For those of us in the field, sure, there are inaccuracies in the clinical portrayal. On the donation side Donate Life Hollywood has been working tirelessly to insure that the organ donation and transplant story line is as accurate as possible. But come on folks, for the general public they do not know what all the numbers mean on the monitors! It is more important that the message needs to get out there about donation - so get over yourselves and help promote the show so that more people are exposed to the donation and transplant message. Think about those on the transplant waiting list who are at the brink of death hanging on to every kernel of hope - hoping that a family who has watched "Three Rivers" or have heard about organ donation and the lives that can be saved, make the decision to donate life.
If you are so bothered by the clinical inaccuracies or if you find glaring errors in the portrayal of organ donation, please contact Donate Life Hollywood as they remain very close with the creator and writers of the show.
