The founder of modern nursing expressed her revolutionary ideas of hospital reform in these two essays, published in 1859 and presented the previous year at the Social Science Congress. During the Crimean War, Florence Nightingale achieved renown as The Lady with the Lamp, the tireless caretaker of wounded soldiers. Afterward, Nightingale searched Europe for innovations to help the army improve its hospital care. This report of her findings and suggestions had a profound effect on the medical community and reestablished the author as an international healthcare authority. Despite the advances in medical knowledge since Nightingale's era, her common-sense approach continues to form a solid foundation for nursing. In these essays she voices the importance of hygiene―fresh air and water, cleanliness, proper drainage, and ample light―as well as ongoing consideration for patients' feelings. Nightingale's ability to effectively articulate her ideas impressed her contemporaries and continues to influence modern readers. This volume serves as a companion to Nightingale's classic of nursing literature, Notes on Nursing: What It Is, and What It Is Not.

Excerpt from Notes of Hospital Life, From November, 1861 to August, 1863, Vol. 2 These "Notes" need no introduction. They were jotted down, from day to day, as a private journal, and are printed only at the instance of friends. The undersigned greatly mistakes if they are not welcomed as an accession to our literature. On every page they betray a large and elegant culture, and what is better, they manifest a profound sympathy in all that is human, and a keen insight into nature and into man's heart. Felicities of thought and expression abound, vivid pictures of incidents and life-like sketches of character. They are full of spirit, of wisdom, and of right feeling. They rise, too, to the level of a great subject. In the conflict which convulses our land, how many souls are stirred - how many hearts made to burn!

Excerpt from Notes on Hospitals: Being Two Papers Read Before the National Association for the Promotion of Social Science, at Liverpool, in October, 1858, With Evidence Given to the Royal Commissioners on the State of the Army in 1857 The following papers on the Sanitary Condition of Hospitals, and on Defects in the Construction of Hospital Wards, by Miss Nightingale, were read at the Liverpool meeting of the National Association for the Promotion of Social Science, in October 1858, and are now printed in terms of a resolution of the Association. The publisher has thought that it would further be the objects of the Association if the evidence given by Miss Nightingale before the Royal Commission on the Sanitary State of the Army were reprinted, and he has added it accordingly. That evidence not only contains information of public importance, as regards the army and its hospitals during the late war with Russia, but gives the results of many years' experience with regard to the principles of hospital construction and organization. In order to make the information on hospital construction as complete as possible, three papers from the Builder, of August 28th, and September 11th and 25th, 1858, have been also reprinted, by the kind permission of Mr. George Godwin, who has paid much attention to the subject. They present similar views on the architectural arrangement of hospitals. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from Medical Notes on Climate, Diseases, Hospitals, and Medical Schools, in France, Italy, and Switzerland Letter addressed to John Forbes, M. D., Secretary of the Royal Geological Society of Cornwall, and Physician to the Penzance Dispensary. Dear Sir, I Herewith, at length, transmit you the concluding portion of my notes on the Climate, Diseases, and Medical Practice of those places on the Continent which I have hitherto visited; and when I take a review of them thus finished, and such as they are to meet the eye of the Public, I confess to you that the sense of their unworthiness, which I originally urged as a motive for my declining to publish them when this measure was first suggested by yourself, presses on my mind more than ever. The die is however now cast, and all that remains for me, thus placed upon the stage, is to make the best excuse I can, first, for my appearance there at all, and secondly, for the indifferent part which I am apprehensive my Auditors and Judges may consider me as performing. I have therefore to request that you will affix this Letter by way of Preface to my Book, without addition or diminution.
