A young girl stands against the far wall between two iron patient beds; a child sits up in each of the two beds. Other furnishings include a wicker rocker, privacy screens, and bedside tables. The floor is tiled. There is a painted or stenciled frieze around the high-ceilinged room depicting windmills, sailboats and Dutch children at play.
