Face of the Frontline. Tribute to Healthcare Workers Using Medicine Caps

Miranda Kurncz Garcia's avatar Miranda Kurncz Garcia

I am an ICU nurse who has cared for Covid 19 patients through the past year. This piece was created using more than one thousand medicine caps collected by my coworkers through the pandemic. Each color of cap represents a different medication used for pain, sedation, nausea, blood pressure and many more. Each cap was removed, cleaned and arranged as a healthcare professional. This is my tribute to the hard work, dedication and teamwork shown by my fellow nurses, respiratory therapists, doctors, patient care techs, physical therapists, occupational therapists and housekeepers. They donned their PPE for 12 hours a day and put their lives on the line to care for Covid 19 patients. One thousand caps, one thousand medications, one thousand lives touched by healthcare professionals.
