The Emergency Room And Art
Hospital emergency rooms are for patients who cannot wait for a regular doctor visit. Their injuries are generally extreme and require the full knowledge and experience of the health care team. The patient's loved ones are condemned to wait and worry about the outcome. Each second seems to take an hour to pass for those who wait. Art can make the waiting easier by giving a needed distraction. If art catches their eyes, they have a chance to concentrate on something other than the clock and their fears. Providing this helpful distraction is an important step for the hospital as a facet of all around care for patients and their families.
