A volume of more than 500 pages might be considered rather extensive for the elucidation of only one portion of the work of the nurse, but the book is well written, easy to read, well arranged, and, despite the size, not diffuse. It takes up systematically the qualifications of nurses, principles of surgical treatment, sepsis, asepsis, etc., general considerations of disease and repair processes, instruction in the practical details of ward work, preparatory and postoperative treatment of patients and working instructions.
