"Florence Nightingale: The Nightingale Pledge"; Wikipedia
Research Facts
The Nightingale Pledge was originally created by a committee chaired by Lystra Grette, an instructor of nursing at Harper Hospital in Detroit, Michigan, and was first used by its graduating nursing class of 1893. The pledge is an adaptation of the Hippocratic oath taken by physicians. There is no evidence that Florence Nightingale had input or knowledge of its content; however it bears her name. Traditionally it is cited by nursing graduates during Honours or Pinning ceremonies and accomapnies the Candle lighting segment of the ceremony.

This work I undertake // Alone in Thy great name, and for Thy sake, // In ministering to suffering I would learn // The sympathy that in Thy heart did burn // For those who on life's weary way // Unto diseases divers are a prey. // Take, then, mine eyes, and teach them to perceive // The ablest way each sick one to relieve. // Guide Thou my hands, that e'en their touch may // prove // The gentleness and aptness born of love. // Bless Thou my feet, and while they softly tread, // May faces smile on man, a sufferer's bed. // Touch Thou my lips, guide Thou my tongue, // Give me a word in season for each one. // Clothe me with patient strength all tasks to bear, // Crown me with hope and love, which know no fear, // And faith, that coming face to face with death // Shall e'en inspire with joy the dying breath. // All through the arduous day my actions guide, // And through the lonely night watch by my side. // So shall I wake refreshed with strength to pray: // "Work in me, through me, with me, Lord this day!" // -- Myra L. Sawyer."

Research Facts
Angada Children's Hospital opened in 1953. The hospital chose the name 'Angada' - an Arabic word meaning "to bring help unto you" - in recognition of the support of the main fundraising group, the Shriners Club in 1938. The Doran Wing at the east end of the Kingston General Hospital was renovated and expanded in 1953 for the Angada Hospital, which was the only children's hospital between Toronto and Montreal. Four floors provided 82 beds and treatment centres for infants to teenagers. Closures started with Angada 4 in 1972, Angada 3 in 1973. In 1977 the Paediatric Ward at Hotel Dieu is closed and consolidated at KGH until 1984 when it is reversed and the Angada Hospital is renovated as the Syl and Molly Apps Medical Research Centre and is the home for the Human Mobility Research Centre since 1987.
