In the mix: Want a prettier hospital? Save your discarded medical supplies

Stressed Out Nurses Weekly, February 22, 2010

West Boca (FL) Medical Center's Jill Wiser, RN, had a unique view of the utility of medicine vial caps, syringe holders, and paint samples.

Wiser turned the materials into five mosaic-like abstract pieces of art that are now on display at the medical center, reports The pieces are made by assembling the caps on a piece of canvas about 3 feet wide. The nurse's station, CNO office, and nursery are all decorated with the pieces. Wiser also plan to create a special piece to be auctioned for charity.

What do you think? Could your hospital do with some more artwork of this kind? Or do you know of a nurse who has a similar side project that benefits your hospital? Let us know at
