Creative Chinese Nurse Uses Cartoons To Heal Her Patients by katty : July 05, 2018, 03:07:07 PM
A nurse in southeast China’s Jiangxi province has been using cartoons to improve her patients’ standard of care.
Wen Tingting, a nurse working in the intensive care unit, takes care of patients who are often elderly, illiterate, or unable to move.

Many of her patients have trouble expressing their needs.

So the creative nurse took it upon herself to draw pictures that facilitate communication with her patients.
“The patients can't talk freely with a tube in their trachea… and sometimes we can’t guess what the patients want,” said Wen. “If we don’t understand each other after multiple guesses, we both get very anxious.”

“As a family member of the patient, I feel really touched by such caring acts,” said Hu Ying, a local resident.

Wen has drawn some 20 pictures to pinpoint common discomforts felt by patients. She adds that the bright colors of the cartoons bring a bit of color into their lives.
The nurse plans to keep drawing cartoons to help her patients.
