Florence Nightingale

The founder of modern nursing.  One of the earliest models of an inspiring caregiver, Florence Nightingale has inspired generations of family and professional caregivers. “Nightingale continued believing (circa 1850) that the death rates were due to poor nutrition and supplies and overworking of the soldiers. It was not until after she returned to Britain and began collecting evidence before the Royal Commission on the Health of the Army that she came to believe that most of the soldiers at the hospital were killed by poor living conditions. This experience would influence her later career, when she advocated sanitary living conditions as of great importance. Consequently, she reduced deaths in the army during peacetime and turned attention to the sanitary design of hospitals. She was a tireless worker.”
