NURSE FOR OCONEE.
Recently there has been much talk
of n nurse for Oconee county. There,
have been several baby conferences
held over tho county, and some
classes for tho colored nurses and
midwives-much talk and whoop-la,
hut after all, "what ls lt all about,
and what is a county nurse, any
how?" What does sho do? And can
sho scratch tho surface of the large
area of tho county?
We will first start by saying what
she is and what sho ls supposed to do,
for tho ideal is set purposely high
and it is doubtful If any human can
actually attain it-but all are sup
posed to measure up to tho best of
their ability. 1
The county nurse is a public health
nurse, whoso duties extend over the
entire county. All right. What ls a
public health nurse? A public health
nurse is a graduate, registered nurse,
who has had post-graduate work in
public health and training in public
health work. She is supposed to
know the best modern ways to do
bedside nursing, She has been taught
the most recent scientific ways to pre
vent disease. Tho watchword of the
public health nurse is Prevention and
Education. This means the teaching
of health and the care of the sick.
I nder whom does she work? Tho
eon ii ty ntirao works under the County
Medical Association, and is under the
direction df tho State Supervisor of
Nurses, Sile is to work in the closest
co-operation with all of the existing
organiza'.ions in tho county. She is
supposed to work from !t a.m. to 5 p.
tn. unless there is an emergency call.
Overtime can be made up at her own
discretion. One-half day and Sunday
is given her unless there is an emer
gency.
Rut what does she really do?
Among some of her Jobs too mim?r
ent to enum?ralo in full, is the care
ol' prenatal cases, infant welfare
work, supervision of bottle-fed and
sick babies, instructions in home
nursing and midwife classes, super
vision ol' tuberculosis patients, im
provement of sanitary conditions in
the home, control of epidemics, phys
ical inspection of school children, es
I; : ? liaient of health c.Mitres and
clinics for tho correction of defects.
The year is so divided thai a phase of
each work i: stressed during certain
months. From October td April Ibo
main work ii.school inspection: April
Mid May and .lum", infant welfare
holds (I rs I place; in July. August and
September tuberculosis work is the
major work bul Homo of all kinds
of work ks ?I. all of the lime. Bed
side nursing is doini to Instruct some
ono In the lniiue how to care for the
sick.
And then, what a nurse? will not
do. She will not make a diagnosis.
She will nol dispense medicine. She
will not arrange for corrective treat
ment without consulting tho family
ch . he will not express dis
approval ol iroalinont prescribed by
a physician, Sho will not assume tho
authority of a county health officer
in the enforcement of quarantine and
tho administration of vaccines and
;-em ms.
Will ? menu r 11) thing to our coun
ty lo have a county nurse? Ask tho
Other ( inuit ?es which have had a
IMirsO If they ave willing to do with
' " ' ? " ''?>. I hoy have found it
worth ?'h., With one accord they
will fight tho idea of doing without
nurse.

all right, and have not used any other medicine as I do not see the need
of it. 1 am a guard at the State Reformatory, and have been for three
or more years. When I first heard of
BLACK-DRAUGHT
Liver Medicine
and the good medicine it was, I had been having a tired feeling when
I'd get up in the morning. I would be stiff and sore, and had a slimy,
bad taste in my mouth, but didn't think sb much of it till I began to feel
stupid and didn't feel like eating-then I knew I needed medicine. It
was then I began Black-Draught, and I felt all made over, ready for any
kind of work, ready to eat and sleep. So, for any return of this trouble,
I take Black-Draught, and for 25 years it has been my medicine, and 1
wouldn't be without it at all. My work is constant. I am on my feet a
lot. I am out of doors, and fresh air and Black-Draught are all the
medicines I need. I recommend it to others for I know it is good."
