Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Saving Hope features some intense scenes of patients bleeding, having surgery, and dying, and a main character is the spirit form of a comatose man. Sexuality is also an issue; casual physical encounters are common among the hospital staff, and couples are shown nearly nude (bras for women, bare chests and unzipped pants for men) and simulating intercourse. There's some intermittent language ("bitch," "damn," "hell") as well, and a range of serious topics that aren't for little kids' ears, so be sure to save this one for after their bedtime.

Sexual Content

Couples engage in simulated sex (though it's more implied than shown and nothing sensitive is visible) and lengthy make-out sessions. Women are shown in bras, and guys are shirtless. References to sex include "banging" and a woman's offer to a coworker: "I'd do you." Casual workplace sex is common.


Hospital scenes are sometimes graphic, with frequent bloody bodies, exposed bones, surgery, corpses, and the occasional fight. There's mention of war, attempted suicide, auto accidents, and other causes of trauma.


Words like "bitch," "hell," "damn," "ass," "bastard," and "freakin'" are common.

Social Behavior

Saving Hope raises complicated emotional and ethical issues, presenting the contrasting sides of each without bias. Characters wrestle with difficult decisions on a daily basis, reflecting the rigorous and life-saving work of doctors and nurses. Some storylines raise awareness about topics like suicide, PTSD, and particular medical conditions.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters talk about getting a drink to take the edge off, but it's not usually shown. The same holds true for conversations about drug use and getting high.
