This painted and leaded glass ‘lancet’ window panel was discovered in store in Guy’s Hospital in 2017. The glass panel may have come from Riddel House- a nurse’s home established for St. Thomas’ Hospital and the Nightingale Training School. This glass portrait of Florence may have been the only surviving treasure from the home. The panel dates from the early 20th Century and is on display in the museum.

Confessions of a Male Nurse

From stampeding nudes to inebriated teenagers, Michael Alexander never knew what he was getting himself into. But now, sixteen years since he first launched into his nursing career – as the only man on a gynaecology ward – he’s pretty much had to deal with everything…

Body parts that came off in his hands.

Teenagers with phantom pregnancies.

Doctors unable to tell the difference between their left and right.

Violent drunks.

Singing relatives.

Sexism.

… and more nudity than the sex industry.

Notes on Hospitals
Notes on Hospitals

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.

Notes on Nursing: What it is, and what it is not
Notes on Nursing: What it is, and what it is not

“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 0ayed 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.
