The image shows a neatly made hospital bed being lit by natural light from the right side. The arrangement is very simplistic and open. Most of the room is shades of white with accents of color on the door and folders.
The image shows a recently used hospital bed in a cream and beige colored room. Medical equipment, a wooden chair, a golden yellow curtain and a potted plant is visible in the room. The light is diffused from above.
The image is off a billboard displaying an image of a female doctor showing a relaxed female patient her temperature. To the left of the image are the words, “Your care and comfort count.
