Research Facts
People's Books; # 135; The introduction states "the following chapters are intended for those who wish to nurse their sick relatives and friends in their own homes. They give a general outline of sick-room methods, and explain as simply as possible the easiest and best ways of applying certain rememedies, and of nursing particular diseases. The information given will not qualify the home nurse to undertake the nursing of acute cases without skilled help, but it will perhaps enable her to co-operate more effectively with a fully trained nurse and with the doctor.
