A great feel good story about medical waste recycled into a large art mural. Former ICU Nurse, Tilda Shalof hopes it provides both comfort and inspiration to hospital staff and patients.
“For families, it can be a cheerful, joyful thing to look at,” she says. “For nurses, I think it shows that all the little things that we do every day add up to big things for each person we treat.
“Any one of those pieces — the lids, the connectors — by themselves is meaningless. But all together you can create something with a lot of meaning for a patient.”
