Mia. GILES" REPORT. j
The annual report of Miss Margaret i
Giles, visiting nurse, follows: j
The work of this association has
j been going on In this city for the past j
five years and few people outside of ;
the directors of the association have
come to realize Just what has been
done and how the work has grown.
Figures are but uncertain proof at
best. The result of the effectiveness of
the work has been that the number of
the calls has Increased and the num
ber of patients has multiplied, until
now the Visiting Nurse association,
with two nurses, Is taking care of as
many patients In a month as the av
erage small hospital.
Our patients have the same care as
I the patient In the wealthy home with
I a trained nurse in charge.
! One of the nurses was In a home a
; few days ago, giving the patient the
usual care. A neighbor was calling at
j the time, and made the remark that
i "the Visiting Nurse association Is do-
ing a blessed work a poor woman is
: taken care of like a queen."
calls made do-s not give an adequate
idea of the work accomplished. Few
people know what the curse really
does when she calls on her patient.
Here Is an example: The nurse calls
on a patient. Inquires after the condi
tions, takes the pulse, respiration and
temperature, gives the patient a bath
and any other treament necessary, re-
arranges the bed with clean linen, In
jStructs a member of the family as to
i the care of the patient and to giving
mf diclne and diet, and departs.
I WORK OFTEN ARDVOIS.
j In some cases the work is more
arduous. The nurse comes Into a
jroom where there is no sunlight, no
member of th family can use it from
infancy to old a;e. The users of
Syrup Pepsin have learned to avoid
cathartics, bait water, pills and other
harsh remedies, for they do but, tem
porary pood and are a shock to any
If no member of your family has
ever us"d Syrup Pepsin and you would
like to make a personal trial of it be

ventilation and no fresh air. If there
is a room in the house to which the
patient can be moved, the nurse super
intends It Again, the bed is poor, the
linens not what they should be, and
they must be supplied. The Visiting
Nurse association loans these things,
but It is up to the nurse to see that
they are supplied. Then, again, the
food supply Is not what the patient
should have. Milk and eggs are need
ed, and again the nurse must see that
they are supplied. If the patient Is
tubercular, the supply cornea from the
Helper's circle, King's Daughters; if
not, from the Visiting Nurse associa
tion. In other cues mneh help Is needed
to make people welL Frequently the
patient Is found on a bed without a
mattress or lying on a mattress with
out linens and covering. The mat
tress, tf any, la dirty and not conducive
to aiding the patient in getting well,
and frequently the patient Is found In
a cold room without fuel or store.
Then the Associated Charities and oth
er charitable organizations are called
upon to help. The nurse sees that a
stove and fuel are procured, the stove
put up and & fire built. If there Is not
a doctor on the case, she sends for a
physician, goes to the supply rooms
for clean linens and warm blankets
and comforts, stops at the nearest milk
station and grocery store for milk and
eggs, and returns to her patient By
this time the room Is warm, and she
gives the patient a bath and alcohol
rub, and goes on her way to the next
case, feeling that she has made one
patient comfortable and happy.
In many homes that the nurse goes
Into the children are found with scant
and improper clothing, and a member
of the family Is sent to the Association
house or West End Settlement for
NOT ALL CHARITY.
It is but just to many familes into
whose homes the visiting nurse Is call
ed to say that not all of the work Is
done for charity.
True, none of the families where the
nurse calls are able to pay $25 a week
for a trained nurse and few are able to
pay $ la visit for the hourly nurse,
but many of them are able and will
ing to pay for the good care that they
receive, and do pay 25 and 50 cents a
The policy holders in the Metropoli
tan Life Insurance company are also
entitled to the care of a visiting nurse.
The company pays the Visiting Nurse
association 50 cents a call for every
call that the nurse makes on one of
their policy holders. It all helps in
the end. and some months a neat sum
is collected from these fees.
The aim of the Visiting Nurse asso
ciation is to provide the nuTsing and
reach every home that cannot afford
to pay $25 a week for the trained

The report of the secretary, Mrs.
C. E. Sharpe, showed that the work
has grown rapidly. Gratitude was ex
pressed for the efforts of the two
nurses and to the Helpers' circle of
King's Daughters for their effort in
behalf of the cause, and thanks was
extended to the public for its interest
and support. Meetings of the board
have been held monthly. Two mem
bers have been taken, Mrs. Sudlow by
death, and Mrs. Strauss by removal
from the city. Mrs. T. A. Murphy and
Mrs. W. A. Rosenfield were elected to
fill these vacancies. The old buggy
was worn out and a new rig has since
been placed at the disposal of the
nurse. Much good has been accom
plished and great, credit has been due
to the president.
