OriginEdit

Florence Nightingale (1820 – 1910) was a celebrated English social reformer and statistician, and the founder of modern nursing. Having served in the Crimean War was when Nightingale first started to understand the poorness of the techniques used by medical personnel in the field and started to come up with a better, more efficient way to help the injured. During the war these were just ideas as she had a job to do and worked hard as a head nurse in many hospitals. It was during that time she gained the nickname 'The Lady with the Lamp' as she moved silently through the halls with a single lantern to guide her as she checked in on all her patients and a few that weren't hers. After the war Nightingale had 45,000 pounds (65 US dollars nowadays) at her disposal from the Nightingale Fund to set up the Nightingale Training School at St. Thomas' Hospital. In the main lobby there is Nightingale's own lamp immemorial to inspire future nurses and doctors to heal always.
