Imago dei or "image of God" is relevant to health care in that humans are all created equal and in the image of God. This is unique to humanity over all other creatures that were created. There should be no disparities is health care based on race, education, income, gender etc.

All people are brothers and sisters in God and should be cared for in times of illness or incapacity. People born with physical and mental deficiencies or those that develop them from trauma or illness are still created in God's image and a part of God's community. I found the following verse that describes the promise to care: Matthew 11:28-29

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls."

We as nurses must bear this in mind and care for our patients with compassion and humility. We are a large part of the health care work force and can demonstrate this in our daily work.
