"His shoes and People still suspected that he was a child and too young to be a medical school but berry was an excellent student. Is he the inspiration for doogie howser. It could well be. I don't know at first berry wasn't allowed to sit for exams. Because they suspected that berry was too young this is when lord erskine intervened. Laura's can said give the laddish shot there's much promise and talent here right. I mean if he's young and knows the material like was your problem dude edinburgh so james berry took. The exams passed and got a degree in medicine. Axel at this point berry enlisted in the army. He began serving in the military in eighteen thirteen on july. The sixth initially he was made a hospital assistant for the british army but soon was promoted to an assistant staff surgeon. And that's the equivalent of a of a rank of lieutenant. So it's pretty pretty good deal wound. He served in capetown south africa. He ended up spending ten years there during that time he became good friends with the governor. Lord charles somerset all the while building. His reputation is stellar doctor in an exceptionally talented surgeon. Now his relationship with the governor seemed un note worthy at first but over time rumors began circulating about the nature of their relationship. There are reports of graffiti being scrawled on the walls by anonymous. Accusers suggesting that the governor was quote. Buggering dr berry. Well i mean. We can't rely on graffiti. No no but this was the scuttle but at the time so word gut to the officials and commissions were. Set up with the intent of investigating. Eventually they were both exonerated. I don't know if exonerated is the right word. But that's the word that they used. In the source material in both parties were exonerated now was a very skilled surgeon and his medical skills. In general were unprecedented. He was actually the very first person to successfully perform a cesarean section in which both the mother and the child survived. I guess they had done it before. But you know hey well one of them's gotta go right. That makes me think of that song. Don't take the girl. Remember that song who did on country music radio for lake sixteen years and you don't remember the girl by tim. Mcgraw a respect country music and it was provided me a good living. But you know as well as i do i turned the volume down but it all fairness i did that on the top forty stations to champ. Now dr berry also was very socially conscious he spoke out against the sanitary conditions of barracks in the mismanagement of prisons and asylums. He arranged for better ways to distribute clean water throughout capetown. He treated in his practice. Not only the rich but the poor not only the colonists but also the slaves. He did however have a very bad temper in although his reputation as a doctor a surgeon with stellar his reputation as a person. Not quite so much. He was once witnessed yelling at florence nightingale in istanbul. He was very upset that she wasn't protecting herself enough from the sun so so he yelled at florence night. Well i mean that was all in her best interest so he was known to scream at patients in the hospital weren't following his recommendations g. He was known to smash metals medicine bottles against the wall. He even challenged a captain to a duel for disagreeing with him. He sounds like the kind of guy that if he lived now would have his own reality show. Yeah they'd call him like angry or something. Like what's dr angry up tuna today dr bundled smasher. He swore heavily. He flirted with women constantly. I see no problem with any of those things. One man challenged him to a duel for quote paying improper attention to his wife berry responded by striking the man in the face with a horse whip sterile so berry was a stellar dr a groundbreaking surgeon but he wasn't very well liked by people because of his temper and his flirting wearing so he kind of kept to himself. He didn't have a lotta friends. Dr james berry died from dysentery on july twenty fifth eighteen sixty five. At his deathbed several acquaintances had gathered around word was that he was going to share a secret when he died but he never did berries. Last wishes were to be buried in his clothes when he died without his body. Being washed wishes that were not followed when the nurse undressed the body to prepare it for burial. She discovered female anatomy and telltale stretch marks from pregnancy. Oh my goodness for a half century. Dr james berry was biologically female so why masquerade is a man. Well i mean it was the early to mid eighteen hundreds. You wanna do stuff say things outside. It's true many people see berry as a trans pioneer others claim. That berry like you said was forced to adopt a male persona because women weren't allowed to go to medical school. Dr james berry was actually born. Margaret and bulky. Whoa about seventeen. Eighty nine in cork county ireland excellent. This was of course a time when women were not allowed to not only become doctors but really get an education at all. Margaret grew frustrated by the limits placed on her because she was a woman and at eighteen years. Old margaret reportedly elder brother quote. Where i not a girl. I would be a soldier. As a teenager. margaret was raped by a relative. She gave birth to a baby who she named juliana. The baby was raised by her mother in her late teens. Margaret and her mother moved to london to stay with her uncle. Whose name was james berry. He was a member of the royal academy berry introduced. His niece margaret too. Many aristocrats and powerful people around london very believed margaret's intellect would carry her far so her uncle. The real james berry passed away in eighteen. O six and margaret took on his name to enroll in medical school alao So after margaret slash james berry passed away it was revealed. That margaret was biologically female. The secret is made public with an exchange of letters between the general register office and berries. Dr major dr mckinnon. These letters were leaked in the letters. Major mckinnon who signed the death certificate said it was quote none of my business whether dr james berry was male or female which probably was a statement that berry would have agreed with buried in cancel green cemetery in north west london doctor james berry way ahead of his time as a doctor and humanitarian does what is the The greystone say is dr james berry.

I just recently found your podcast on spotify better late than never. I've been binge listening at work. I listened to the one today about jethro. Finding a box of dildos. Yeah i did with my metal detector what is it with main and fake dick's. My husband was up there hunting. Where from pennsylvania and this was before he met me in the vast nothingness that is the main forests in the middle of all of this. Nothing he came across a bag of dicks yes they were fake ones thankfully but it was a grocery store bag full of dildos zero reasons for a bag of dicks in the middle of nowhere. Just no homes around nothing. Just dick's well. Now that i've broken the ice with a dick story thanks for all your fascinating nonsense. It's my favorite. Thank you listen that is. It's a paranormal phenomenon. We don't know really where all of these fake dick's are coming from. And why they're ending up here in maine. We think at some sort of a time space portal. I have to say though. There are a lot of real dick's here too. I mean blinkers guys. They're built into cars for a reason. So do you have a story for me. It's only fair. i do as a matter of fact. Good let me let me assume my story listening crouch okay. That's that's creepy. This is a bummer. So just prepare yourself and trigger warning there. There is some really upsetting sexual assault and murder. So that's not your bag here. You go so. It's the summer and fall of two thousand sixteen and a serial killer is on the streets of urban new jersey first of all. Let's talk about tiffany. Taylor taylor met khalil wheeler weaver through a. She was thirty. Three and living in roselle Wheeler weaver was twenty and she said that he was obsessed with her. He kept asking her friend to hook the to up and she kept saying no because he was younger and because he was sleeping with one of her friends and she just thought that would be weird and she didn't want to deal with them good reasons but he kept begging her to sleep with him and eventually started offering her money to sleep with him and eventually she said yes. Although she didn't really plan to do that she was planning on robbing him. So tiffany got to his place. In orange around eight o'clock on april tenth 2016. He paid two hundred dollars up front and they went up to his room. She said oops. I forgot the condoms in the car. She went back downstairs. Got in the car and left. Now i'm going to tell you about robin west. Robin west moved out of her parents home when she was eighteen. She worked at a club as an exotic dancer and she was doing sex work as well. At the end of august two thousand sixteen robbins friends. Renisha patterson suggested they take a trip together to new jersey. The two stayed in a hotel but after a couple of nights they run out of money and they didn't have a place to stay that night so they went out hoping to make a little cash so that they could then have a choice to stay nine. A car pulled up. It was a silver sedan and the drivers seemed nice. Patterson described him as charming and robin. Got in paterson type. The car's license plate number into her phone saved it as a contact and waived as they drove off the following day. Patterson reported west missing because she hadn't come back. She gave the license plate number to the union township police and the play belong to a silver w the nineteen year. Old's body was discovered a month later in an abandoned building in orange. The had been set on fire that very night. Joanne brown joanne brown worked as an exotic dancer for nearly a decade. She was also a sex worker. Friends worried about her safety but she always made sure to contact a friend when she was with john. So that way there was that that line of communication on october twenty second twenty sixteen. She was picked up by a john and as she was getting into his car. A friend said that they had to make an urgent phone call so she gave them her phone as they drove. She asked to borrow the man's phone and he obliged so she called a friend to report an update. It was one thirty. Pm and cell phone towers recorded. The phone's location within a few meters. A few hours later the friend who had answered the phone got another call from that strange number but nobody said anything so she asked. Is this london. Which was joanne's street name. The person on the other line just stayed silent. They didn't say anything. Her friend called the number back three or four times but no one answered so she immediately reported her friend missing to newark police. This is not sounding good now. So now it's november fifteenth twenty sixteen and throughout this this whole fall. Tiffany taylor the girl that we talked about earlier kept receiving texts from a stranger and in her line of work. It was not uncommon. This man kept begging her for sex. She declined so he offered more money and finally she agreed so her plan was to take his money and then just go. The stranger arrived at the hotel she was saying at at seven fifty one. It was fifty degrees but he was wearing a black hoodie and a hat and bisky mass. The two drove away but stopped when the guy said that he had to be. The next thing taylor knew she was waking up in the backseat of her friends. Vehicle being assaulted by wheeler weaver. His hands were around her neck. She screamed please. Don't kill me please. don't kill me i'm pregnant. And he said. I know she said that man when she recognized who he was. She thought. We'll maybe i have a little room to make this work for me. She said. I don't have my phone with me. My phone has our whole conversations from the previous incident at has your contact information. My phone has everything in it. The no one will have a problem figuring out. Who did this if they are able to go into my phone and check it out and so immediately he said yeah. We gotta get that phone. He got into the driver's seat and immediately started like ranting about how nobody likes him and no one wants him. And why should. I have to pay a girl to show me attention. As they're heading back to the hotel. Taylor slipped her double jointed hand out of one of the handcuffs and she debated if she should like handcuff over his head and just garage him but she was worried that they would both die if the car crashed or something and once he pulled into the whole the motel she changed her mind he let her out of the car and she went up to the hotel door and she him without him following her immediately closing the door behind her he ran to the door. He shouted you lied. Come outside like that's going to happen. And so taylor opened the green curtain and gave him the finger. I mean that's what i would do. And then she called the police that call the police. I didn't then give them the finger with double jointed hands wheeler weaver took off and when police arrived this comes from north jersey dot com taylor described what had happened. She said that she'd been kidnapped. There she had been raped that this guy was trying to kill her and she knew who it was. She had his phone number his facebook account his home address. She even told the cops his full name khalil wheeler weaver. The cops accused taylor of prostitution and threatened her with arrest. She was four months pregnant at the time and she still had this. Handcuff dangling from her wrist. They arrested her for for they. Didn't they said that they were going to if she if she kept up the charade this story about having been kidnapped wall so they they didn't believe not believe her. Why did this guy have some sort of like prominence in the in the community now just didn't want to believe it but they thought she was a sex worker and so they just dismissed her claim. As though it didn't matter she was an incredible source. Right here is even though. She had a handcuff attached to her hand. She begged them to remove the cuff for her. Because a man who tried to kill her who had raped her put this on her and she still felt like he was somehow in control of her. You know they for an hour refused to do so eventually. They laughed and nothing was done. Sarah butler wait. Let me just firm. Yeah i need to say this. that's bad in. yeah okay. Continue sarah butler. Sarah butler created an account on a social media app called tag and it's like a place to find companionship kind of like a tinder kind of deal and she connected with a guy called lil yacht rock. He message immediately. Said you wanna make some money and then sex for money and she wrote back. wow how much money. She never worked as a sex worker. This wasn't something that she did but this guy just reached out to him was like. Do you want to make some money. Should she bullets. Let's let's let's take a look at the offer. How much so. He texted her five hundred dollars and she wrote. You're not a serial killer right. Oh no he replied no so they agreed to meet and the day came and she didn't show up she got nervous and then she started kind of second guessing herself. He seemed nice enough in the messages. Except for the weird sex for money part And then she reached back out to him and she was like. I'm really sorry that i stood you up. I got nervous. I it's tell you Do you want to try again. And so he was like yeah. Let's do that so on november. Twenty second twenty sixteen butler borrowed her. Mother's blue minivan and picked up wheeler weaver. It was nine fifty five pm. They drove to a local seven eleven. she stayed in the minivan. He got out and went into the store and bought some condoms. They then drove to rock reservation which is in west orange Which apparently is kind of like an overlook where you can see the empire state building and it's the next place where there's a wedding venue. And so that's where. He attacked her killed her and dragged her body behind a storage trailer and partially covered her with sticks and leaves by there was supposed to return home with the van and when she didn't her sister but yet daily started texting her friends asking if anyone had seen her in the morning her mom called her phone and it went straight to voicemail and so they started to get really concerned three days later but dailies friend vicinity again. Being sarah butler's sister. Her friend spotted the blue minivan. It was parked behind a former factory about four miles from their home. Police arrived at the scene as did daily and a friend of the girls lumia brown so the cops were looking over the van and while they were doing so the girls were looking as well and they noticed that one of sarah's hair extensions was in the van this was really concerning for them and so they knew that it wasn't just that she wasn't home. It was that she was in danger. So the women decided as the police were doing their thing to take matters into their own hands. They drove to butler's home and open up her laptop and the the friend actually knew her password so they searched into her e mail and her facebook and then they found her tagged account so they discovered the conversations between sarah brown and lil yacht rock. They discovered this conversation that had gone on just before her disappearance and so they decided to create a fake profile. No and match with wheeler weaver. Oh my god. A little bit of time went. He did pop up as a match. They liked him immediately and eventually he messaged back. They were actually standing inside the station on november twenty six when the girls received a text on tagged it was from lil yacht wrong. Oh shit they arranged meeting with wheeler weaver at panara in glen ridge and when he arrived the police were waiting there instead. He was questioned but since they didn't have a body and they assumed that you know sarah may have just been off somewhere doing whatever they declined to press charges. Police said that they really didn't have evidence that a crime had occurred at the time. They said there was no way of knowing he was a suspect or if she was even missing meanwhile authorities are also following the trail of butler's fallen and from its last location paying. They found the location of eagle rock reservation on december first. They found her body lying in the weeds in the parking lot. And they ended up taking wheeler weaver into custody. Police found so many clues on his phone. St- search history included things like how to make homemade poison to kill people. Okay his phone location. A history showed movements at crtv. Seen phone calls from locations that he'd picked girls up at directions home from places where they'd found victim's bodies how pretty open and closed case. It seems well. Prosecutors took three years to investigate wheeler weavers crimes before bringing their case during that time. Joanne brown's body was found strangled at a vacant home. in orange. not far from where wheeler weaver lived so a two month trial took place in the fall of twenty nineteen and it presented more than forty witnesses. Of course they brought up wheeler weavers. Google searches on how to make homemade poison and an a videotaped police interview where he was caught in lie after lie about his exploits where he'd been who he'd met where he left. The girls completely unscathed at wheeler weavers trial. Police officer billy lie was asked whether he had believed tiffany. Taylor story. Tiffany taylor the only survivor of these encounters and he said Not really at the trial they also went over. British patterson who had recorded wheeler weavers license plate. When her friends left with him they had gone over joanne. Browns check in call to her friends to help connect wheeler weaver to the spot where she was kidnapped and the location where her body was found. They went over basinas daily and lamia browns discovery of the discarded. Red extension and women can't fishing wheeler weaver on tagged during that time. He believed he was hunting his next victim but in reality those women were hunting him. Two hours was all the jury needed on. December nineteenth twenty nineteen convict him of killing three women attempting to murder a fourth. Yes wheeler weaver faces a maximum sentence of five life terms. Plus another eight years in prison. The prosecutor's office has not disclosed yet. How many years request because of covid fest. Sentencing has been put off repeatedly. I got all this information from Blurred bylines dot com nj dot com. A couple of great articles with incredible reporting by julia martin and tom nobile on north jersey. Dot com. Yeah who. I thought you were going to say. He got away with it. Oh i'm so glad he didn't go joe. Yeah time for some pugs nortel's. I told you it was going to be rough. But those women doing what they did.

"florence nightingale" Discussed on This Day In Esoteric Political History
"Hello and welcome to this day in attorney political history from radio. My name is jody africans. This day march fourth eighteen fifty five in istanbul turkey. A sanitary commission arrives at a hospital that is treating wounded british soldiers. From the crimean war. Is that both was noble at the time. A song about that anyway. The soldiers at this hostel were dying at an alarming rate and not just from their rooms but from illness conditions in the hospital were horrific and nurses at the field hospital. Were doing all. They could to stem the tide. Among the nurses was florence nightingale perhaps the most famous nurse in history and this moment this experience in hospitals during the crimean war would help establish her reputation not just when it came to nursing but when it came to data visualization as well because florence nightingale was able to tell a story through data and graphics about how conditions at the hospital began to improve so really fascinating story when the has lots of interesting echoes for today so he has to discuss as always. Is nicole. hammer of columbia. Hello nicki hello. Jody and kelly carter jackson of wellesley. Hello kelly and their and our special guests for this episode. Is tim harford Writer economist He's done many many wonderful things that i am. A fan of the latest book is called the data detective and his podcast is called cautionary tales. The new season of the podcast has the story of florence nightingale and data viz and the new book. I gather has a chapter on that as well so tim. Thank you for doing this. This is great. It's my pleasure special guests. I like that. Let's go to call you so so guests. Well look if all the guests special then well okay are increasingly difficult guests. Tim harford escalated quickly. Okay so take us to this moment. And then we'll get into the whole world of data viz since we do want to hook it to a moment march eighteen fifty-five there is this battle in crimea and a sanitary commission shows up in istanbul. Why is this a an interesting moment to you tim to me. It's an interesting moment. Because this is the pebble that launches an avalanche of both public health reform that saves millions of lives and also triggers a revolution in data visualization. And an. both of these things. Start at this moment and there's not much sign of it at the time. The basic problem in istanbul is that the way from the front line. Istanbul is not in crimea. But it's the hospitals in. Istanbul are in a terrible state in charge of the nursing. Those hospitals is florence nightingale. Probably still the most famous nurse in the world and she is requested help to clean up. The hospitals and arriving at the hospitals comes sanitary commission. It's their job to sort everything out and nightingale later tells a story about what happened. She tells that story using graphs and that story becomes incredibly influential important moment in just the sanitation revolution. I to take listeners back. It's time in which you know there. Ours are open. Sewers running around this Hospital there are carcasses everywhere of dead horses and different things and in a pre germ theory era. The idea that these are exacerbating the spread of infectious diseases is just not something. People have totally gotten yet and so even though it seems so straightforward to us today nightingale was doing something kind of revolutionary here. Yeah i mean. They found a dead horse in the water. Pipe supplying water to the hospital. That's not sugar coat. It and i think e even then there was the sense of. That's probably not good at be problems. But they didn't have a theory of germs. That comes later. Robert kark louis pastor. That comes a twenty thirty years later so there were various ideas about what was going on. And the idea that nightingale had was actually. It's all about bad smells and so. She's very interested in ventilation so they don't really know how to clean up these hospitals. They don't really know what will help. And what won't help. But they try a few things and but what to me. I think is fascinating. Is that having done. This and the results seemed to be great. I mean enormous numbers soldiers dying in these hospitals. The mortality was i think early in eighteen fifty five. It was more than fifty percent of the soldiers who showed up then died and almost all of them died of disease not of wounds. But why this is a story about more than just the crimean war or more than just this couple of hospitals in istanbul is because nightingale then takes experience back to london back to the british empire where she is one of the most famous people in the whole british empire and she says we learned some lessons and we need to clean up not just those hospitals in istanbul but every hospital not just every military hospital but every civilian hospital and we need to clean up the barracks and we need to clean up the slums. I've seen these things but not only. Have i seen these things my own eyes. But i've got the data. And i'll show you the data and i will show you the data in a way that you will not be able to argue it. And the reason she needed to make this argument very concrete and very persuasive was because although she was very famous in beverly influential. She's a woman in a man's world and the military establishment and the medical establishment. Don't like what she's saying. They were embarrassed and they think this is the kind of thing you may have heard. During the time of corona virus. People are saying things like well. You know there's not really anything we can do about these deaths. yes yes sure. People die these infectious diseases. But what can you do. People are gonna die. Just suck it up and nightingales. No this is. These are preventable deaths and we prevented them out in istanbul. And i'll show you how we prevented them and we.

"But the queen could be useful to her. Florence nightingale had returned from the kingdom of hell with a mission. She wanted to make sure the awful toll of disease in qatari never happened again in any british hospital anywhere in the world. So nightingale persuaded victoria to support a royal commission investigating the health of the army as a woman. Nightingale was unable to sit on the commission herself but she assembled her geek allies and worked behind the scenes to figure out the problem. She turned down queen. Victoria's offer of a suite at the palace. There would be far too many visitors instead. She took rooms at a low rent. London hotel so one had been the underlying cause of the death toll in this qatari hospitals to modernize the answer is obvious. Disease spreads thanks to poor hygiene poor ventilation and contaminated water and the hospitals and scutari suffered from all three. It was not so obvious. To nightingale gem theory didn't exist in the eighteen fifties below. The science was mysterious. Nightingale was one of a group of victorian thinkers. Were convinced that one way or another good sanitation should help with her ally. The great statistician william far. She assembled and examine the data. Far in ninety nine became convinced that wherever they looked premature death went hand in hand with open. Sewers bad ventilation and unclean conditions. It wasn't just about the crimean wall. It was an ongoing public health. Disaster in barracks civilian hospitals and beyond the pair began to campaign for better public health measures. And here the epic battle was joined. They faced powerful opposition. The government didn't want an embarrassing report. About the crimean. War already regarded as a fiasco. The queen of course was an instinctive conservative. Whose idea of reform was to replace worn over promoted bureaucrat. With another a neither the army nor the medical profession cab to take instructions from a woman not even the angel of scutari florence nightingale in any case. They believed she was surely wrong. A couple of years after the end. Of the crimean. War in eighteen fifty-eight the chief medical officer john. Simon acknowledged that contagious diseases. Such as cholera and dysentery. Were a cause of premature death in every civilized country. But they were practically speaking unavoidable. These diseases just happened. Said john simon and yes they killed. People deal with it and don't take any lessons from florence. Nightingale nightingale was outraged at the complacency. The deaths from disease in british army barracks were criminally high. It was just as bad. She said as it would be to take one thousand one hundred men out upon sold replaying and shoot them the same for civilian hospitals private homes slums all over the country. Men women and children were dying and self-satisfied men like john. Simon insisted that these deaths were practically speaking unavoidable. The chief medical officer the generals and the entire british stablishment stood against her her geek sidekick statistician william far warned her to be careful. Well if you do you will make yourself enemies. After what i've seen i can find my hand. Guns in the nineteenth century heroine had a twenty-first-century weapon. It was a diagram. It's not an accident that these days surrounded by graphs and charts. They're the sweet. Spots between solid statistical evidence on one hand and cheryl gifts and filtered photos on the other hard data plus striking images scientific evidence backs up. What any news editorial social media consultant will tell you graphs attract attention and they persuade people. Researchers at tufts visual analytics lab found that people formed an impression of a graphic within five hundred milliseconds. Just half a second. That's far too brief to understand what the graph is about. But it's not too brief to think what a mess or who shiny we've response to images without conscious. Thought another team of researches data scientists at new york university showed people evidence about practical policy. Questions for instance does a high corporate income tax drive jobs overseas or does prison work as a deterrent. Sometimes the relevant data was in the form of table and sometimes in the form of a chart unless people already had a strong position on the subject. The charts were much more persuasive than the tables. If you saw a chart you are much more likely to change your view. That seems obvious today. It wasn't obvious in the eighteen fifties statisticians much more likely to present their data in the form of a table. Even if the table sprawled across page after page. Beautiful design was thought to be superfluous florence nightingale. Not for the first time in her life. Banked to differ she would create a graph so compelling that the british establishment would have to bow in acquiescence. The graph in question is titled diagram of the cause of mortality in the army in the east it was published in eighteen fifty nine the year after dr john. Simon declared that death from infectious disease was practically speaking on avoidable. Now i'm going to try my best to describe this image. I've seen an original printing up close in the library of the royal statistical society in london. It's amazing but you can find copies online. The first thing you would see. Say if you were showing the graph. Five hundred milliseconds is that it consists of two pale. Blue spirals one larger than the other. Look more closely and you see that. Each spiral is built of twelve equally angled wedges. Like the hours of the clock. Some of the wedges are small clinging near the center others sprawl out hugely. What gives the diagram this sense of spiralling in or out. The rose diagram is a beautiful image but describe some horrifying numbers each of the wedges represents the deaths in a particular month. The two circles described the loss of life over two years from april eighteen. Fifty four to march eighteen fifty six. The first circle spirals out like snail. October is not to grave november. When nightingale arrived at the hospital in scutari is worse. December is worse still january and february awful wedges of blue so large that they threatened to bleed off the edge of the page itself in the center of the diagram a tiny black and red wedges they indicate a handful of deaths from miscellaneous causes and from wounds. The huge blue wedges show the overwhelming death toll from infectious diseases. No one ever made a decision because of a numba they needed a story. So said daniel carmen and amost vergerski the two psychologists whose.

"Also marks the birthday of an amazing woman who in many ways transformed healthcare two hundred years ago this week. Florence Nightingale was born in Florence Italy to British parents. Her name may be familiar to you. What is less well known is how this Amazing Woman Changed Medicine Nursing and hospital care and drove us to use evidence to improve healthcare quality in other words. Looking at whether what we actually do improves health nightingale was born to a wealthy family and was exceedingly well educated. She spoke English French. German Italian Greek and Latin and was a skilled mathematician and statistician. In fact she was the first woman elected to the Royal Statistical Society. Now two hundred years ago there was no germ theory no understanding of bacteria or viruses but there was lots of infectious disease smallpox measles whooping cough diptheria kill thousands of people. Sick people were cared for at home. By family members hospitals were crude dirty smelly and dangerous places in fact one paper ninety gale wrote. It may seem a strange principle to enunciate as very first requirement of a hospital that it should do the sick. No harm well without antibiotics or vaccinations. Nightingales weapons were isolation hygiene and hydration hospitals. Were not built to nor did they function to prevent the spread of disease. Patients were placed in large windowless wards with no ventilation and no sanitation. Nurses often had no formal training and they worked only during daylight hours. Patients were left alone at night. Nightingales drive was to improve safety and care at the hospital. She Championed Pavilion Style Hospital. That's the type. We are all familiar with today. There are separate wings different so as to reduce the spread of disease there are windows provided fresh air and walls with smooth surfaces that allow for cleaning she also developed nursing into a learned profession with a defined curriculum and a rigorously trained skill set. More importantly she was passionate about nurturing the values that she felt were foundational to nursing including being honest sober and loyal as she professionalized nursing. She also felt. Nurses were best supervised by other nurses rather than male doctors later in life. She caused a social uproar. When published a paper documenting. That more men died. In hospitals of infections then died in battle. She insisted that hospitals change people. Listen to her because she was an experienced health expert. Perhaps this is a lesson for our government today. Listen to those around you who have expertise.
"Ignace. Similize was a showman but when he truly believes something he fought through the feelings that might have otherwise nope back his voice one of the few things that he was outspoken and confrontational about was the simple act of handwashing. He was certain it was necessary but only after much observation getting other people to believe him was a different story born in Hungary in the city known as Buddha which would one day join its neighboring city across the river to become Budapest. Similize started law school but he wound up becoming a doctor in the end in Eighteen. Forty seven just three years after earning his medical license. The methodical and intelligent fellow was given a notable position at a maternity ward in Vienna Austria. His job was basically as the chief resident which gave him a lot of responsibility and power over the staff at his hospital. There were actually two maternity wards which is where women go to give birth. The first word was staffed by doctors called obstetricians the other word was staffed by midwives trained health professionals whose main concern as caring for women during before and after the Labor of childbirth more on the difference later when some of I started he noticed two things one. All the women admitted for delivery wanted to go to the ward staffed by midwives and to ten percent of the women who went to his word the obstetrician. Stafford died while they were there. Well no wonder everyone wanted to go to the other word right. The unfortunate women died from thing called child bed fever which we now know to be caused by an infection. Women wanted to go with the midwives because well they weren't done living yet and fair enough but ignace wanted to know why there was a difference in the fate of the patients in the two wards and more importantly how to solve it so he made some methodical observations. I he noted women gave birth in two different positions in the two different words so he had the doctors deliver babies the same way as the Midwest. No difference same fevers same tragic results then he noticed that when someone died a priest walk through the halls ringing a bell in solemn honor of the women who passed he thought maybe this played psychological tricks on the women in the word. Perhaps they realized that someone had died in that they very well could be next. The suggestion alone might make someone gets sick. Meanwhile of course no one died in the other word hence Nobel ringing so do you get as line of thinking. Well he told the priest ago ring his bell somewhere else still no difference with his methodical mind. He tried everything he could think of. No luck of any especially for the poor patients on the ward then. One of the doctors got sick with symptoms similar to the women and before long. He too died at this time. Medical doctors not only took care of living patients but they spent time on cadavers. Or dead bodies. It's kind of gross. When you think about it and it would certainly give me the willies. But what better way is there to learn about the human body than with a real not live human body? It ain't pleasant but it's the truth and we've learned a lot as society in this way anyway. It turns out that this now dead doctor had practised finger while working with a dead body now we know he got an infection and he died eighteen fifties Austria like pretty much everywhere else in the world didn't understand germs or bacteria or viruses or infections yet. There were still plenty of people who most diseases were brought on by miasma which is bad air in shortly idea was that you might smell something really bad and then get sick. It sounds crazy now but you should understand that. Most diseases made a body smell bad You're around some smelly sick person. You might get sick too. We know it's germs now but all they had to go on was that sticky stinky surrounding. The city Sim obese new. They're just had to be a connection between the dead bodies and the sickness. Unlike the midwives who simply dealt with the pregnant women many of the doctor spent time dissecting analyzing and learning from the cadavers which obviously meant touching them then they just hopped on over to the maternity ward when there was a baby to deliver and they did not wash their hands or their tools. Crazy right by today's standards. Yes but two hundred years ago. This was business as usual. The connection had not been made by science. The evidence was pretty clear to some of ice so he made a new rule. Doctors must wash their hands in chlorine and their tools. And guess what happened. The number of deaths fell dramatically. In fact in the obstetricians ward the survival rate was basically the same as the midwives ward so he went around telling everybody about it. Wash your hands. You're bringing gross stuff to a healthy body with your unclean tools and you're unclean fingers and instead of being excited and saying thank you. The doctors were like you're telling me I making my patient sick. Who Do you think you are? I am a good doctor and you know nothing similize before long. He was ridiculed out of existence. It's too bad. They didn't listen to him. Lives could have been saved with some simple handwashing just a few years later. There was a British nurse working in a war zone during the Crimean War who helped revolutionize medical cleanliness Florence Nightingale paid attention to international science. She took her job seriously and was responsible for the lives of thousands of recuperating British soldiers. There's a chance she heard about vices. Observations there's also a good chance that she just figured it out on her own because when she implemented rules about washing hands and tools the same thing started to happen she saved lives but still there were plenty of detractors. The anti hand washers. The dirty hinders the filthy fingered. You know nothing nightingale. They cried but you see these two did know what they were talking about. They might not have understood it on a microscopic level but they could clearly see a relationship between dirty handed doctors and sick or dying patients. The world was changing in the mid eighteen. Hundreds and doctors were doubling as scientists often to determine what was causing serious illnesses.
STEMinists: Elizabeth Blackwell
"Today we're talking about the first woman mentor earn a medical degree in the united states. She went on to become a champion for women in medicine and an important social reformer. Let's meet our stem in the day. Hey dr elizabeth well. Elizabeth was born in eighteen twenty one in bristol england. She was the third of nine children born to samuel blackwell and his wife hannah who were both well known quakers and anti-slavery activists. This was not your average family. Many of elizabeth's close relatives tibbs became well known in their own right including her brother henry who is a famous abolitionist and women's rights activist and was married to fellow activists lucy stone elizabeth sister. Emily followed elizabeth into medicine and their sister-in-law antoinette brown blackwell was the first ordained female minister of a major protestant artist denomination. When elizabeth was eleven years old her family moved to the united states and eventually settled in cincinnati ohio just six years later in eighteen thirty eight elizabeth's father died and left the family practically destitute in the middle of a major national financial crisis in order order to support the family elizabeth her two older sisters and their mother worked as teachers to make ends meet but elizabeth had other career ambitions. She was inspired to go into medicine. While taking care of a dying friend the friend noted that she would have had a less onerous and likely less embarrassing experience cheap intrigued treated by a female doctor at the time there were few medical schools in america and the ones that existed didn't accept women in order to move towards torturing with going into medicine. Elizabeth took private teaching positions with the families of two different southern physicians who mentored her in their profession then elizabeth moved to philadelphia in eighteen forty seven hoping that she could use her quaker connections to gain entrance into any medical school that would have her. She applied to as many schools so she could but was rejected from all except for one geneva college in upstate. New york apparently sent her an acceptance letter meant to be a practical joke but elizabeth is it didn't find it particularly funny and went ahead and accepted her joke. Acceptance was just the beginning of elizabeth's difficulties in medical school not only when she forced by her professors to sit separately from the men during lectures she was often left out of the labs component altogether that menchu is getting significantly less hands hands on practice than her male peers but elizabeth was a genius she won over her professors and classmates time went on with the sheer force her skill and intellect act. She ended up graduating first in her class. In eighteen forty nine making her the first woman to graduate from medical school in the united states and the first modern day woman woman doctor of medicine after graduation she moved to europe to further train under doctors in london and paris elizabeth was subjected to plenty of prejudice she does from european doctors who would often make her play second fiddle to them as nurse or midwife but even then her brain was churning she noticed that male doctors often caused caused disease transmission and sometimes even epidemics because they didn't wash their hands between patients. Elizabeth began emphasizing the importance of personal hygiene in hospitals tolls and pioneered preventative care in eighteen fifty. One elizabeth moved to new york city there. It was even harder to be a woman doctor than it was in europe. She was refused all posts in the city's hospitals and dispensaries and was even unable to rent offices for her own private practice as a result her. The practice was very slow to develop in the interim she wrote a series of lectures called the laws of life with special reference to the physical education of if girls thanks to the assistance of quaker friends and the quaker community elizabeth opened a small dispensary in a very poor under served neighborhood in eighteen fifty three four years later. She was joined by her younger sister dr emily blackwell as well as another woman doctor. The greatly enlarged dispensary was unified as the new york infirmary for women and children. One of its major missions was in providing positions for women doctors. The block while sisters even trained nurses there during the civil. If a war for union hospitals in eighteen sixty eight after perfecting a plan she created in consultation with florence nightingale. Elizabeth open the women's medical college at the infirmary. The medical college operated for thirty one years and was well known for its very high academic and training standards. Elizabeth served as the chair of hygiene for the school until she moved back to england for good in eighteen sixty nine back in england. Elizabeth established a successful private practice. She also helped to create the national health society an eighteen seventy five she was appointed to a professorship at the london school of medicine for women which she held until nineteen o seven when she was forced to retire due to injury while on vacation in scotland elizabeth took a terrible fall down a flight of stairs and was was left mentally and physically disabled in nineteen ten doctor elizabeth blackwell up died at her home in hastings sussex after suffering a stroke that paralyzed realized half her body
