This book comprises the lectures delivered to the nurses of the Pennsylvania Hospital during the last four years. It deals entirely with medical cases and with the care of children. The chapters on personal hygiene and the hygiene of the sick room are practical, as also is the chapter on hypodermic medication, catheterization and the use of the stomach tube. The chapter on diet contains a number of good recipes, for which the author acknowledges his indebtedness to Miss Walker and to Miss Byerly of the Pennsylvania Hospital.
