Quote on hospitals

Hospitals at night are strange places. Their tiled corridors, sterile operating theatres and mutedly lit wards seem to be haunted by the many pains which drugged or restless slumber holds at bay until dawn rolls back the sombre blinds of night. Then the lamp is extinguished on the night sister's desk and there is an increasing stir of activity as patients wake in the wards and nurses come on duty with their cloaks flying like banners as they race across the hospital quadrangle.
A hospital is a world apart, like a liner at sea, or a star in the sky.
A hospital is at once a battlefield, a place of prayer and a haven of hope.

~ Violet Winspear
