To assess a patient’s mental capacity to make reasonable and logical decisions, their family and close ones need to be included, and every effort has to be made to communicate with that patient before their decision is taken away.

A simple photograph or painting hanging on the wall has the power to cheer the spirit and enliven the space. Wall art can make me laugh, evoke emotion, incite conversation and debate, and inspire me on a daily basis.
