The Night Shiftupdate
Tuesday, May 27th, 2014
Welcome to the night shift at San Antonio Memorial, where those who work the Night Shift are a special breed.

Back at the hospital, ER psychiatrist Dr. Landry De La Cruz consoles the brother of the wounded teen while TC performs an unusual and extremely risky surgery.
