Japan's emergency medical care system suffers from a severe labor shortage. Overtime work per doctor in emergency medical care rises, with a lack of experienced doctors being the cause of the problem. Night time emergency medical care is worse than daytime. The Hakuoukai Asahi Kaihin Hospital, which is a hospital branch of the Hakuoukai Group, starts a reform of the emergency medical care system at their hospital. They create a night doctor system. The night doctor is an emergency medical team that only works during night duty. Thanks to this system, the shift system is abandoned and the hospital is able to appropriate care 24 hours a day. Asakura Mitsuki, Naruse Akihito, Fukazawa Arata, Sakuraba Shun and Takaoka Yukiho are members of the night doctor team. These five doctors differ in personalities and age, but, under the motto of never refusing a patient, they begin their work. (Source: AsianWiki) Edit Translation

Cast & Credits
Realistic night time hospital experienceA very good story. At times, one wonders where this drama is leading to . In its gentle pace manner, it has everything that a night time emergency doctor has to face and deal with. Haru was excellent in leading this bunch of young doctors, each with their own issue. There was no single dull episode. Apart from caring for their emergency patients received during the night shift, they had to defend their reputations as a team of highly trained professionals dedicated to their chosen career. The pain was laid bare when they had to take abuses from their daytime colleagues as their efforts were often taken as granted. The team spirit between them was tremendous and was infectious. One must watch it to the end to appreciate what the whole story is all about. Veteran senior doctor Sawamura was excellent as the team director with a hidden agenda. I like his drama a lot. The original soundtrack is very good and memorable. I will rewatch it again in the future.
