Question: Florence became famous as "The Lady with the Lamp", looking after wounded British soldiers in which war?
Correct Answer She is best known for this work, even though it was only a small part of her career. Her introduction of female nurses into military hospitals was the first of its kind. Her criticism of the appalling conditions in the hospitals caused the army surgeons to reject her at first. Only one in six soldiers died from war wounds, and the other five from diseases, mostly caused by poor hygiene. Florence used her society contacts to become a whistle blower and after much publicity she was given the task of introducing some rudimentary hygiene measures, which greatly reduced the mortality rate among the soldiers.
