The relationship of clinical teaching to medical knowledge was established and so also was the relationship of medical knowledge to the treatment and possible elimination of disease. Deficiencies in the nursing arrangements While the ‘golden age’ of the Dublin School led to rapid developments in medical and surgical treatments, nursing in the voluntary hospitals did not reflect the advances made in the period.

She should therefore be an educated woman, capable of receiving instruction in subjects related to scientific medicine and she should be of good moral character. Conclusions The new class structures and new relationships between the classes that developed in the wake of the Industrial Revolution came to represent the context for the management of poverty and the provision of charity and medical relief in the nineteenth century. Aside from the workplace, the workhouse infirmary and the voluntary hospital were the principal public arenas where the rich and poor came into close contact with each other, and here the richer class saw at first hand the conditions of poverty, poor sanitation and disease, conditions that were seen to represent the moral poverty of the poor.

In many of the large hospitals, each division or ward grouping had a nurse or a head nurse supported by one or two assistant nurses, night nurses and wardmaids. In all of the hospitals, extra nurses were employed for ‘special cases’. At Sir Patrick Dun’s and the Adelaide hospitals, probationers assisted the nurse. The Committee expressed concern at the insufficient supply of night nurses and the lack of clear definitions of the duties of the ward attendants, assistant nurses and wardmaids. 14 The Committee reported on ‘the want of proper codes of printed rules’ for nurses, and on defects in the wages, board, lodging and clothing of nurses and assistant nurses.
