Florence Nightingale’s “What Nursing Ought to DO” (Description of Nursing)
“I use the word nursing for want of a better word. It 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 – all at the least expense of vital power to the patient.” (Excerpt is taken from Notes on Nursing: What It Is and What It is Not p. 9)
