Scutari Hospital in our barn!

RSM Thomas has been learning about the conditions injured soldiers wherein during thy Crimean war a long long time ago. He read about a lady called Florence Nigtingale a asked us to find out all we could using non-fiction sources. To help us understand what Florence and her nurses had to do when they got to the hospital in Scutari, we created an old hospital in our barn outside. We had to clean it up just like the nurses (we were glad there was no mouldy food or maggots!)

    WINK – The Scutari Hospitals were messy and dirty and hospitals now are clean and tidy.

  2. You’re right Jacob, well done!

  3. I recently visited hospital when I cut my head.They glued it together and it was very clean there.In the Scutari hospital they never had glue and would most probably had to stitch it with a dirty needle.

  4. I wouldn’t like to be stitched up with a dirty needle Tom, I’m glad we have glue in hospitals now!

  5. Hospitals now have nice comfortable beds, nice food. and very clever machines that help make us better. They did not have these in the Scutari Hospital.
    However, We do not have Florence Nightingale in our hospital!

  6. You’re right Harrison, but I know which I would prefer!
