Research Facts
This manual contains the rules and regulations for the Visiting Nurse Service provided by the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company. The service began in 1909 from an agreement made between Haley Fiske, vice-president of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, and Lillian Wald, director of the Henry Street Settlement House. Wald would send trained nurses to work for Metropolitan Life as visiting nurses to eligible policyholders for fifty cents per visit. The nurses treated the poor, the working class, and immigrants of New York City, and eventually nurses from other organizations joined as well. Between 1909 and 1953, when the service ended, around twenty million policy holders received nursing care from this service.
