N. Y. State Hospitals Bulletin, Vol. 5 : May 15, 1912 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from N. Y. State Hospitals Bulletin, Vol. 5: May 15, 1912 Those of us who have been in this work for twenty years already realize the enormous strides that we have made during that time in better care of patients, largely through the assistance of the trained nurse. Most important of all, in my judgment, are the attendants and nurses. They are constantly with the patients and should be better trained to appreciate the good that might be done by one line of con duct and the harm that they may do by another line of conduct or another attitude. I am perfectly familiar with all the discouragements which beset us in an endeavor to raise the standard of care upon our wards. Notwithstanding, that is the problem which is now before us and we must attack it with all the energy and resourcefulness which we may command. Anything which will reduce the deadly monotony of our wards will help. I think that in one way we make a mis take in having our shops and industries removed from the wards. I wish that work of this kind could be introduced directly into the wards - many would then be attracted and interested who are not reached now. In one hospital in Massachusetts two sewing rooms have been closed and the manufacturing and mending are all done in the Open wards.
