OH FLORENCE by Pat Walker

Project Description: Editor

Early Australian Nursing- a memoir

With its title as a dedication to Florence Nightingale who was committed to the care of wounded army personnel during the Crimean War in the 1850s, and who was an inspirational figure to the author, Oh Florence enlightens the reader as to what was required in trauma nursing care before the development of the sophisticated drugs and surgical methods available in modern times. In a world without plastic and very little by way of synthetic material, the methodical recycling of linen, glass, and rubber was taught religiously. The achievements of the medical profession were remarkable under those conditions and these practices could go a long way in teaching our current society about reusing, recycling, and making the absolute best of what is available.
