Caption: Florence Nightingale (1820-1910), the English nurse and hospital reformer. Florence Nightingale earned the name 'lady with the lamp' through her tireless caring of the wounded during the Crimean war in 1854. Her experiences there convinced her of the need to take a sanitarian approach to hospital design. Hitherto hospitals had actually encouraged the spread of disease through overcrowding, poor ventilation & bad drains. She publicized the miasma theory of disease while advocating light & airy hospitals with clean staff and good sanitary engineering.
