The rich history of British nursing comes to life in this lighthearted volume exploring the traditions and experiences of nurses across the 20th century.   Nursing in the United Kingdom has been steeped in tradition since the Nurses Registration Act of 1919. Many of the customs and methods practiced today have been passed down through the generations. Rituals & Myths of Nursing collects amusing and poignant reminiscences of nursing through the 20th century to paint a picture of this unique profession from the first registration of SRN No 1, Ethel Gordon Fenwick, to the present day.   Written with humor and a light touch, each chapter explores a theme with stories told by nurses from different eras. We have tales of alcohol prescribed to dilate blood vessels or simply for the feel-good factor. Enemas were less fun for everyone concerned, but highly common as they were given for almost all bowel conditions.
Available since: 10/30/2019.

    This story is based on true events of a serious and noble attempt made by the author to save the life of a cherished white and ginger cat who was injured. 
    The author found a cat lying in his garden one day, wounded and meowing quietly. Together with his friend, they took the cat to a veterinarian. 
    The veterinarian told them that the cat had probably been hit by a car and crawled to the garden. 
    Eliran started then to write about the story of Jupiter the hero, the curious cat, who was fascinated by the stars in the heavens and wanted to be “The Star of the Neighborhood”. 
    The story presents a picture of the complexity of the life of street cats, showing the anticipated urban dangers and their dependence on the mercy of the people who volunteer to feed them and care for them. 
    This story resonates well beyond cats and people. It talks about the values of carrying for the other and being empathic.
