The painting above is titled Helpful Hands. It was painted by artist, Wayne Pascall. From my perspective, this painting depicts one person helping another to the top of a mountain. I see this as a metaphor which compares the individual helping to the nurse, and the individual receiving help to their patient on their way to recovery. Each time a patient reaches the “top of the mountain”, a nurse has been successful in their endeavor of healing. I like this metaphor because each time a patient is discharged, I will think of them reaching the top of their mountain.
