"Trauma," which begins next week, is about EMTs in San Francisco; "Mercy," which begins tonight, follows a group of Jersey City nurses whose often messy private lives are interrupted regularly by their often thankless jobs. Haughty patient: "Nurses! What are you good for anyway?" Nurse Veronica: "Well, we do try to keep the doctors from killing you."
