One of the many departments that has witnessed firsthand the extraordinary work of staff within Nursing & Patient Care Services is Massachusetts General Hospital's Police, Security and Outside Services.
As national Nurses Week approached in early May, Bonnie Michelman, executive director of Police and Security, was looking for a way for her department to pay tribute to the nursing staff, and she enlisted the help of security officer Jay Mulligan, who also happens to be a talented artist.
The result: An acrylic-on-canvas depiction of Police and Security’s admiration. “Bonnie and I collaborated on the many elements we wanted to include in the painting,” says Mulligan. Using a number of reference photographs, he’d work on the painting by day before heading to Mass General to work the night shift.
“In my 20 years at Mass General, I’ve seen the extraordinary job that nurses usually do, but over the past few months, they reached a new level,” says Mulligan. “We just wanted to show that we support them.”
The painting will be hung this week in the Lunder display case in the main lobby.
