“Notes of Nursing, what is it and what is it not”

” …..the very first cannon of nursing, the first and the last thing upon which a nurse’s attention must be fixed, first essential to a patient, without which all the rest you can do for him is as nothing, with wich I had almoust said you may leave all the rest alone, is this: TO KEEP THE AIR HE BRATHES AS PURE AS THE EXTERNAL AIR, WITHOUT CHILLING HIM”
Florence Nightingale, 1898
