nasal acquisition of staphylococcus aureus in partly divided wards.the spread of coagulase-positive staphylococci has been studied in a modern hospital in which most of the patients were nursed in 4-bed rooms separated from a common corridor only by low dividing walls. acquisition of new nasal strains from patients in other bedrooms was nearly as easy as from patients in the neighbouring beds. there was no indication that subdivision of this type hindered the spread of nasal strains as compared with open wards of the ;nightingale' pattern.19715291743

nightingale's spiritual philosophy and its significance for modern nursing.in her manuscript, suggestions for thought, nightingale attempted to integrate science and mysticism. she wrote that the universe is the incarnation of a divine intelligence that regulates all things through law. for nightingale, the laws of science are the "thoughts of god." because of her deep conviction about universal law, she did not believe in miraculous intervention as an answer to prayer. human beings must discover the laws of god and apply them for health and wholeness. prayer is attuni ...19957721325
the view from scutari: a look at contemporary nursing.modern nursing and healthcare delivery are examined from a unique vantage point provided by the author's visit to scutari, turkey. in selimiye army barracks at scutari, florence nightingale lived while directing the care of thousands of wounded british soldiers during the crimean war. what was nightingale's legacy to nursing, and what have nurses done with it? if miss nightingale were at her desk reading a status report on 20th-century nursing, what reactions would she have? what wars are engagi ...19938367336
wingbeat frequency and the body drag anomaly: wind-tunnel observations on a thrush nightingale (luscinia luscinia) and a teal (anas crecca)a teal (anas crecca) and a thrush nightingale (luscinia luscinia) were trained to fly in the lund wind tunnel for periods of up to 3 and 16 h respectively. both birds flew in steady flapping flight, with such regularity that their wingbeat frequencies could be determined by viewing them through a shutter stroboscope. when flying at a constant air speed, the teal's wingbeat frequency varied with the 0.364 power of the body mass and the thrush nightingale's varied with the 0.430 power. both expone ...19969320660

research strategies for clinicians.if there is a story waiting to be told about nurses and research, it is this: research is part of our past, our present, and our future. research gives "caring" a mental muscle that makes it stronger than caring would be without it. since the crimean war, research has been a foundational cornerstone of the profession. florence nightingale espoused caring and human touch but not without also observing and measuring important patient outcomes that identified the spread of infection via human conta ...200111778347
an exploration of the potential benefits of pet-facilitated therapy.there is mounting evidence to suggest that those who keep pets are likely to benefit from various improvements in health. despite founders of nursing such as florence nightingale advocating the importance of animals within the care environment, their integration into hospitals and other health care settings has been slow. the literature on animal-induced health benefits is reviewed and the conclusion is drawn that the potential benefits of pet therapy are considerable. it is suggested that nurse ...199910624248

how we developed a university program in nursing in turkey.while only the experiences of the faculty of the florence nightingale school of nursing have been discussed, it is my belief that most of the steps would be desirable if not essential in the development of any university-level program. the following is a summarization of the six steps: 1. select and appoint nurses as teachers who have had university-level preparation for their responsibilities of teaching, student supervision, and curriculum development in a higher educational program, or if nec ...19853870526
equine-facilitated group psychotherapy: applications for therapeutic vaulting.in this day of high-tech, managed-care service delivery with an emphasis on medication and brief treatment, it is important for nurses to be aware of nontraditional treatment options that may be uniquely beneficial for some clients. although it may still be considered a novelty, including animals in the healing milieu is not a new idea. florence nightingale herself suggested that "a small pet animal is often an excellent companion for the sick, for long chronic cases especially" (nightingale, 19 ...200212217223

beyond florence nightingale: the general professional education of the nurse.the leadership of nursing has been more concerned with the issue of nursing as a profession on a par with medicine than with the development of an education that would lead to professional status. nurses must leave nursing, the care of the sick, to advance their careers. the author proposes rigorous preprofessional science preparation and nursing education at the baccalaureate level followed by a clinical internship. nurses would be able to achieve specialty education either by graduate educatio ...19892644938

the environment and quality of care in long-term care institutions.it is alarming that a basic need such as fluids and nutrition can be so neglected when caring for elderly patients. dennis & prescott (1985) found when asking nurses around the country to describe good nursing practice that dietary concerns were not commonly identified as an activity comprising good nursing. kayser-jones (1981) found, when comparing the quality of care in a scottish and an american institution, that the greatest difference between the two facilities was the environment. in the s ...19892511553

advancing nursing scholarship through the interpretation of imaginative literature: ancestral connectedness and the survival of the sufferer.imaginative literature has played an important role in nursing practice and education since the time of florence nightingale. used primarily as an exemplar, however, its potential has not been realized fully by nurses. this article addresses the use of imaginative literature in scholarly inquiry. often considered the aegis of literary critics and philosophers, the formal discipline of literary criticism enables the nurse to identify concepts and to generate theoretic explanations about human phe ...200111763370

florence nightingale. her crimean fever and chronic illness.florence nightingale's crimean fever and chronic illness have intrigued historians for more than a century and a half. the purpose of this article is threefold: (a) to discuss the facts that point to the cause of nightingale's crimean fever as brucellosis, (b) to show that her debilitating illness for 32 years (1855-1887) was compatible with the specific form of chronic brucellosis, and (c) to present new evidence that she was still having severe symptoms in december 1887, when it was previously ...19989801534
florence nightingale. a 19th-century mystic.florence nightingale (1820-1910) received a clear and profoundly moving call to serve god at the age of 16. through a lifetime of hard work and discipline, she became a practicing mystic in the western tradition, thereby becoming an instrument of god's love, which was the primary source of her great energy and the fabled "nightingale power." to understand the life and work of this legendary healer, who forever changed human consciousness, the role of women, and nursing and public health systems ...19989801533

nursing research: on what basis?in the past 150 years nursing science has developed into a discipline of its own which has integrated features of various stages of theory development. so far most nursing theories, originally borrowed from other disciplines, have been adapted and moulded to suit the nursing context. the theories developed after nightingale, such as developmental, need-oriented, interaction, system-oriented and simultaneity theories have come about this way. they have depicted the areas of interest in nursing wh ...19948188964

florence nightingale: appreciating our legacy, envisioning our future."if a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. let him step to the music that he hears, however measured or far away." this quote is attributed to henry david thoreau, (walden, 1854) not florence nightingale, but it certainly can describe florence, particularly in early life. florence, you can say, "had it all": wealth, education, a doting extended family, and a life of leisure, which included the opportunity to travel anywhere in the world. ...200617273011
aerospace nursing: the new frontier.since the days of florence nightingale and the crimean war, nursing has been involved in shaping the environment to make it more conducive to human existence. with the emergence of the space age the environment has broadened to encompass not only earth and its ionosphere, but its moon and sister planets as well. to date, nursing has been successful in developing theories that address human-environmental interactions. however, the environment of the 21st century will be vastly different from the ...19892778224
martha e. rogers: a life history.the 20th century in nursing has focused heavily on theory development. while theorizing about nursing--what it is, and what it is not--can be traced back to nightingale, martha e. rogers' an introduction to the theoretical basis of nursing (1970) marked the advent of a new era in nursing science. with a view of nursing as a "learned profession," this landmark work staked out a substantive knowledge base for the discipline. the science of unitary human beings proposed by rogers was a radical depa ...19892654782

what we know and how we know it: contributions from nursing to women's health research and scholarship.in this first chapter, we trace the historical roots of nursing research and scholarship focused on protecting and promoting women's health. beginning with florence nightingale, modern nursing's first researcher, who focused on the health impact of women's daily lives through her detailed observations of human behavior. more recently, nursing's contributions to women's health over the past 30 years have redefined women's health, proposed new frameworks for understanding women's health; provided ...200111439786
the future of robotics can be ours.as the use of robotic aides increases the possibility of telesurgery, the perioperative scope of practice could include using patients' homes or other nontraditional settings as surgical sites. even mobile surgical vans could be used. to perform telesurgery, the health care industry actively must define the role of the health care professional with the patient who can make an incision and insert a laparoscope. this may create an opportune time to promote the rn first assistant (rnfa) role--a goa ...19989592608

respect for human dignity: a central phenomenon to philosophically unite nursing theory and practice through consilience of knowledge.nightingale suggested that there should be no distinction between "men of thought" and "men of action" and that an "ideal" or philosophy should not be isolated but incorporated into everyday activities. this construct is analogous to the belief that nursing theory and nursing practice should be incorporated, and both should reflect a common central phenomenon. the pursuit of nursing knowledge by women of "thought" is not viewed as a central phenomenon but is an outcome of scholarly inquiry. outc ...200111554531
