Sure decorating for Christmas decorating can be a lot of hard work, but at least we aren’t decorating the Chicago Med mid-season finale Christmas episode set!

The Wednesday evening episode of the hit One Chicago medical drama series treats fans to some incredible Christmas cheer.

With a variety of festive Christmas trees and some merry decorations, Chicago Med certainly welcomed in the holiday season during the mid-season in the mid-season finale.

But, how much work do the One Chicago crews put into turning a set such as Chicago Med’s into a Christmas time winter-wonderland?

As it turns out, the answer is that it takes a lot of work. A lot of moving, a lot of arranging, a ton of ornaments, and a whole lot of lights!

“A festive start to #ChicagoMed!” notes the Wolf Entertainment Twitter page.

And, if any Twitter page knows the kind of work that goes on behind the scenes of any of the One Chicago shows, it would certainly be the Wolf Entertainment page.

This is because Wolf Entertainment is connected to the show’s executive producer. The man behind some of our favorite dramas from Law & Order to the One Chicago franchise, Dick Wolf.

A Lot Of Work Goes Into Getting The Set Ready For the Holidays

“Did you know we have an entire Greens department who helps with plants and other floral arrangements?” the Wolf Entertainment Twitter page asks in the Wednesday evening holiday post.

“It took them 48 individual trees,” the post adds. “56,000 lights, and 1,175 ornaments to bring this big tree to life!”

Chicago Med certainly nailed the Christmas decorations in the December 8 mid-season finale titled Secret Santa Has a Gift For You.

However, some viewers have wondered whether or not there may be some medical inaccuracies within the popular series. However, note experts, for the most part, the Chicago Med team nails that aspect as well!

‘Chicago Med’ Brings Only The Best For Fans!

According to YouTube’s Dr. Mike a man who created a medical channel addressing the accuracies of popular medical television shows, Chicago Med scores incredibly well.

“I couldn’t find almost anything medically wrong with it,” Dr. Mike says of the popular medical drama.

According to the YouTuber, the show does a wonderful job showcasing one of the most important features in a hospital, the nurses.

And, Dr. Mike notes, the way these important medical providers are portrayed in the series reflects some incredible real-life accuracy.

The Chicago Med team is fairly spot-on when it comes to what medical procedures need to be applied; as well as pinpointing the terminology to go along with it.
