Call Lights: Iconography of Nurse II

Unisex Icon photo: JParadisi

       This is a photograph of a second hospital call light. The nurse cap is removed from this icon. This is the first image posted on Die Krankenschwester  without gender-bias, because it is the first one I came across. It does not specify calling a nurse. The patient pushes the same button to ask for a glass of water or for an emergency. It is clear which button to push to turn on the TV.
