Back Florence at the Barrack Hospital
Florence Nightingale was asked to go and help the wounded soldiers at the Barrack Hospital in Scutari. She travelled there on a long and uncomfortable boat journey.

Nurses like her were not welcomed, but she soon changed things, however. She:
  • made up rules to keep the hospital clean;
  • improved the water supply;
  • made sure there was enough food for the soldiers to eat.
The soldiers thought that Florence Nightingale was a great lady, and called her the 'lady with the lamp'.
