  • When FN walked into the Scutari Barrack Hospital: There was no clean water, the floors were filthy and the air was foul, rats ran wild and the place was infested with vermin.Soldiers were bedded on blood-soiled straw, most still wearing what they wore on the battlefield.There was no nutritious food and virtually no medicines or supplies, and no money to get any.Orderlies cared only for officers, refused to empty chamber pots, and spent more time chasing nurses than caring for patients.Amputations were performed out in the open in full view of other patients. Surgeons refused to wash their hands and most of their victims died of infection.The first thing the medical director said to her was that he wanted nothing to do with Florence and her do-gooder ladies.He relented only when several boatloads of casualties appeared on the horizon and the hospital was already beyond a state of crisis.
