ortho call room sieczkowski


Lisa Sieczkowski

About the artist: 

Lisa Sieczkowski is a pediatric hospitalist and residency program leader in Omaha, Nebraska. She is very interested in physician well-being and in the medical humanities. 

About the artwork:

"I took this photo with my phone when I walked by the shared workspace of the residents and physician assistants working in pediatric orthopedics. I was struck by the air mattress in the middle of the floor and by the realization that this is their 'call room.' Even more striking to me is the knowledge that this work/sleep space used to be the private office of the hospital's former CEO."
