Research Facts
This Record of Supervised Practice was owned by Donna Tweddell, a former nursing student at the Kingston General Hospital School of Nursing; the notebooks were used by nursing students to record the procedures they completed under the supervision of other health practitioners and acquire supervisor signatures to prove that these procedures were completed; student nurses were required to carry these notebooks in their uniform at all times during the three year program; Donna Tweddell used this book until 1963; by the time she was teaching these procedures at KGH in 1965, the notebooks were no longer in use; this represented a change in the method of teaching nursing care skills from a procedures driven program to a scientific basis model.
The Kingston General Hospital School of Nursing was one of the first apprenticeship-based nursing training programs in Canada; began in 1886 in response to the increased focus on patient care in hospitals and the medical field; the program was meant to produce an educated and dedicated work force of nurses while also providing an affordable labour force for the hospital through on the job student training; the Ann Baillie Building, current home of the Museum of Healthcare at Kingston, originally served as a residence for the student nurses at KGH.

Research Facts
Beginning with William Harvey's experiments on the circulation of blood, research into blood transfusion began in the 17th century, with successful experiments in transfusion between animals. However, successive attempts by physicians to transfuse animal blood into humans gave variable, often fatal, results.
James Blundell in london, UK, successfully transfused human blood in 1818. The largest series of early successful transfusions took place at the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary between 1885 and 1892. Edinburgh later became the home of the first blood donation and blood transfusion services. It was not until 1901, when the Austrian Karl Landsteiner discovered three human blood groups (O, A, and B), that blood transfusion was put onto a scientific basis and became safer.
The First World War acted as a catalyst for the rapid development of blood banks and transfusion techniques. Canadian doctor and Lieutenant Lawrence Bruce Robertson was instrumental in persuading the Royal Army Medical Corps to adopt the use of blood transfusion at the Casualty Clearing Stations for the wounded. In October 1915, Robertson performed his first wartime transfusion with a syringe to a patient suffering from multiple shrapnel wounds. He followed this up with four subsequent transfusions in the following months.
Dr. Fransman graduated from medical school in 1940 and lived in Amsterdam. Worked in Holland, England during WWII. Came to Kingston General Hosptial, Ontario in 1951 as a chest specialist and managed the TB clinincs. Radiologist specialist in 1960 and managed the x-ray department at Kingston General Hosptial, retiring in 1983. Post-retirement he worked at the Collins Bay prison, Kingston Psychiatric Hopsital, Ongwanada and St. Mary's of the Lake, retiring again in 1996.
