Miss Nightingale on Nursing
Medical Practitioners, Medical Treatment, Hospitals, Textbooks, Sanitation
Hails Florence Nightingale's work as one which proposes 'most interesting and valuable' remarks on such general aspects of nursing as ventilation and drainage. Regards her words on the 'minutiae of the sick room'—such as her objection to talking outside a patient's room—to be 'more telling than in any other department'.
