Quick Facts: Florence Nightingale
Florence Nightingale was born in Florence, Italy on May 12, 1820. During the Crimean War, she and a team of nurses improved the unsanitary conditions at a British base hospital, reducing the death count by two-thirds.
Her writings sparked worldwide health care reform. In 1860 she established St. Thomas’ Hospital and the Nightingale Training School for Nurses. She died August 13, 1910, in London.
This year, to celebrate National Nurses Week, Scrubadoo is hosting a “Your Stories” Competition! We want to highlight the amazing things nurses and caregivers do for their patients every day! Submit your stories about great healthcare workers and we’ll post their story to give each caregiver the recognition they deserve!
