Tuberculosis -- nursing
Genre(s):

Abstract:
This film is a dramatization of the arrival and settling-in of a newly-minted nurse at a tuberculosis sanitarium. At first she is unsure of her skills, and slightly worried that she will contract the disease from her patients. She freezes during an emergency situation, but sees how the experienced nurses handle it, and as she becomes more experienced and confident herself, her perspective changes and her abilities are sharpened. She challenges one depressed patient to fight for his health, and the gambit works. Film includes scenes of a young Nurse Wallace giving medication, assisting in the operating room, and conversing with patients and doctors. She works in the post-operative ward, teaches a new nurse the routines at the institution, and explains to patients how to protect themselves once they leave the sanitarium.
