“I attribute my success to this: —I never gave or took an excuse.”

― Florence Nightingale

 

Known as ‘The Lady with the Lamp,’ Florence Nightingale was the founder of modern-day nursing. While she is most remembered for pioneering aspects of nursing, she was also a prolific writer, writing ‘Notes on Nursing’ the cornerstone work used in nursing schools and those nursing at home. This no-nonsense book is not only a call for the establishment of training of nurses; it also offers the most practical advice on the care of patients.

 

Per ‘Heirs of Hippocrates’,

“has been limited to signify little more than the administration of medicines and the application of poultices. It ought to signify the proper use of fresh air, light, warmth, cleanliness, quiet, and the proper selection and administration of diet.”

“This famous book was brought out almost immediately in the United States…The work has been translated into many languages and is surely the most famous and most influential book ever written on nursing.” Heirs of Hippocrates

Garrison-Morton notes:

the greatest figure in the history of nursing” (Garrison-Morton).

 

‘Notes’ includes health practices on:

  • ventilation and warming
  • health in houses
  • petty management (how things are done by others when you must be away)
  • noise
  • variety (environment)
  • taking food and what kinds of food

  • cleanliness of rooms
  • personal cleanliness
  • chattering hopes and advices (the false assurances and recommendations of family and friends to the sick)
