After Nightingale came back to England from the Crimean War, she published two books, Notes on Hospital (1859) and Notes on Nursing (1859). With the support of wealthy friends and John Delane at The Times, Nightingale was able to raise £59,000 to improve the quality of nursing. In 1860, she used this money to found the Nightingale School & Home for Nurses at St. Thomas's Hospital. She also became involved in the training of nurses for employment in the workhouses that had been established as a result of the 1834 Poor Law Amendment Act. This was a critical long term contribution to medicine as it helped professionalise nursing which was once associated with working class women.
Who had the greater impact on nursing in the Crimean War- Florence Nightingale or Mary Seacole? Even though I believe that Mary Seacole is the better nurse and she helped more soldiers, I think that Florence Nightingale had a bigger impact on nursing because for one, she did run a big team of nurses in a hospital and set up a nursing school after the war but two, Mary Seacole had no way of impacting nurses because she was bankrupted after the war and she worked on the front line. Florence Nightingale had formal nurse training and went to help the soldiers in the Crimean war because she was invited to head the nursing staff there through the influence of powerful friends: Sidney Herbert (secretary at war at the beginning of the Crimean conflict) and his wife Elizabeth. Nightingale was to be accompanied by a team of 38 nurses who were picked by a committee who was careful to keep a religious balance among the volunteer nurses. On the other side of the world, Mary Seacole learnt about nursing from her mother which was informal unlike Florence Nightingales training.
However, in my opinion Hippocrates made a larger contribution to medicine that Galen did for a variety of reasons. Firstly, I think Hippocrates was made a greater contribution because the majority of Galen’s ideas and work was based on that of Hippocrates. Galen is most likely to have studied Hippocrates’ work whilst in Alexandria and we certainly know that Galen followed Hippocrates’ idea of the four humours, which although is actually incorrect, it still contributed to medicine for hundreds of years and helped promote the natural causes of disease rather than the super natural. Although you could say that Galen developed his own ideas from The Four Humours Theory, such as using ‘opposites’ to balance the humours, they proved to be even more inaccurate and so didn’t catch on. Galen was also a big advocate of interfering with the body and preferred to use methods such as bleeding and purging patients rather than using diet and medicine like Hippocrates so Galen would often harm patients more than heal which
What they managed to achieve in their adult career inspired other women to take up the profession in that it was seen as a respectable career that any gender could perform. In 1854, Florence Nightingale was invited with her team of 38 nurses to attend to the wounded and sick English soldiers in the Crimean battlefield. While she was there she set up a hospital for her patients and took notice of the poor sanitary conditions and effects that such conditions had on the soldier’s mental and physical health. From the experience she gained treating wounded soldiers, she was able devise new ways of treating injury and brings about a quicker recovery or better palliative of patient. In 1860 she published her first book ‘Notes on Nursing’ which detailed and described her concerns for sanitation, health of the military, establishment of standard practices and hospital planning.
Secondly, the women kept the country going by sustaining the country’s labor needs. Thirdly, they provided munitions that were essential for the soldiers in the battlefield. Lastly, during war time, some British women chose to volunteer as nurses, cooks and helpers to assist male soldiers in the army. It is through these ways that British women held crucial roles during the war even though they did not directly participate in it. As soon as the war broke out, the women of Britain suspended their campaign for the franchise, and boosted recruitment among the country.
With all that said (even if she didn't deserve that credit she got and it would be better used elsewhere in Mary Seacole) she still had a huge influence on nursing and future improvements via Nightingale training school for nurses. Source 4 describes Nightingale as a 'ministering angel' whom filled every fellows face with gratitude with the sight of her. However this source is from the times newspaper who would later be the main force behind the Nightingale fund (as well as already funding her scheme) and the writer would undoubtedly be William Russell (the first journalist to report on war time) who was an avid supporter of Nightingale meaning that the source may have been influenced by this causing it to become corrupt. Although true and supported by almost all reports that she worked with extreme devotion and dedication as well as being known as 'the lady with the lamp' through this dedication in serving the soldiers nearly 24/7, the source does not refer to her improvements of medical care, only how Nightingale influenced the soldiers mentally. Source 5 much like source 4 supports Nightingale.
Their experience of mummification taught the priests about the workings of the human body, and some members of the priesthood evolved into professional doctors. Further still, the Egyptians invented the skills of writing and calculation, which Egyptian doctors were able to use to develop their ideas and record their cures. The ancient Egyptians travelled and traded all over the known world, and brought back all kinds of herbs and spices, which their doctors then used to heal certain diseases. Most of all, they developed a wealthy way of life, which left them time for observation and reflection. From their observations of the irrigation channels used by farmers to water their crops became an important medical development - the invention of the Channel Theory.
The BSC appointed a nurse named Florence Nightingale to oversee the conditions of the hospitals in the Crimea. She believed that proper food, rest and fresh air were important factors in the health of the soldiers. She was able to reduce hospital death rates by improving these conditions. Nightingale reduced the rate from 42% to 2% by either making improvements of hygiene herself or by the help of the Sanitary Commission. She wrote a book about her experience called "Notes on Nursing" which became very popular in America.
