Overview

First published in 1860, this short work was developed by nursing pioneer Florence Nightingale for use at her training school in England, but it is meant for anyone entrusted with the well-being of another and offers commonsense suggestions for all caregivers charged with looking after the sick and injured.

While some of the information is dated, there remains a wealth of timeless advice, as well as an intimate peek into a moment in medical history. Topics covered include:

. ventilation and warming
. noise
. bed and bedding
. light
. cleanliness
. and the benefit of variety in a patient's surroundings

British nurse and teacher FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE (1820-1910) established the Nightingale Training School in 1860 and transformed nursing from a profession for poor women into a noble occupation. She was awarded the Order of Merit by the Queen of England in 1907 for her contributions to medicine.

I picked this book up mostly because I am a registered nurse and was interested in who this pioneer of the nursing profession was and what she had experienced. It is probably not interesting to the average person unless you like history or have an interest in the field of nursing. I liked seeing how the nursing and medical profession has changed since her time. Most people were pretty much on their own when caring for the sick back then. This book was written by her as a guide to those people (mother's and wives mostly) who were home caring for the sometimes very ill in an effort to improve their chances of getting well.

I have been a nurse for 30 yrs & I thoroughly enjoyed this book! So much of nursing never changes, and with the author's 'translation' it's entertaining and enlightening. I would recommend this book for any nursing school curriculum - great 'intro to nursing'

The content is there but there are tons of typos, misprints, and extra symbols. I paid for a different copy that is stillvless than the paperback that reads better.
