    Notes on Hospitals

    £8.50 £6.00
    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.   All shop sales support the Florence Nightingale Museum, a registered charity, and its work.

    "My heart always sinks within me when I hear the good housewife, of every class, say 'I assure you the bed is well slept in': and I can only hope it is not true. What? Is the bed already saturated with somebody else's damp before my patient comes to exhale in it his own damp? Has it not had a single chance to be aired? No, not one.  It has been slept in every night." From the best know work of Florence Nightingale, the originator and founder of modern nursing, comes a collection of notes that played an important part of the much needed revolution in the field of nursing. For the first time it was brought to the attention of those caring for the sick that their responsibilities covered not only the administration of medicines and the application of poultices, but the proper use of fresh air, light, warmth, cleanliness, quiet and the proper selection and administration of diet. Miss Nightingale is outspoken on these subjects as well as on other factors that she considers essential to good nursing. But, whatever her topic, her main concern and attention is always on the patient and his needs. All shop sales support the Florence Nightingale Museum, a registered charity, and its work.

  • From the medicine we take to the cars we drive, the clothes we wear adn even the beer we drink, statistics hae given shape to the world we inhabit. However, for the media, statistics are routinely 'damning', 'horrifying' or, occasionally, 'encouraging'. Exploring the history, mathematics, philosophy and practical use of statistics, Eillen Magnello - with the help of Borin Van Loon's deft illustration - traces the rise of statistics from the ancient Babylonians, Egyptians and Chinese, to the censuses of the Romans and the Greeks, and the modern emergence of the term itself in Europe. They explore the English Victorians such ass William Farr who created the modern discipline of vital statistics, and Francis Galton, W. F. R. Weldon and Karl Pearson who established the fundamentally different modern discipline of mathematical statistics. Introducing Statistics is an enjoyable, suprise-filled tour through a subject that is both fascinating, and crucial to understanding our world.   All shop sales support the Florence Nightingale Museum, a registered charity, and its work.
