The Legacy of Florence Nightingale Lives on at Albeniz Care

Hand Shake

2020 was the 200th birthday of Florence Nightingale, but not a lot of people know her contribution to the nursing community. Also known by the name “The Lady With the Lamp,” Florence Nightingale was a British nurse and social reformer. Despite the many decades that have passed since she was a practicing nurse, her legacy and her approaches continue to be relevant even today. Maybe especially more so because of the ongoing Covid 19 pandemic. This just goes to show how significant the contribution of nurses and medical frontlines are to the community.

The Florence Nightingale Approach

Nightingale understood that a lot of people died more from infection than from actual trauma. During the Crimean War, she witnessed this in the soldiers she cared for. As such, she put in place methods that would reduce the chances of infection. These methods included the constant emptying of chamber pots, serving nutritious food, and constantly bathing the patience in order to keep them clean. She also made sure that there was regular housekeeping and laundry services so that the spread of any diseases would be reduced. More importantly, Nightingale believed in a patient-centered approach. She believed in listening to her patients and responding to their individual needs.
