On admission to hospital a patient is questioned about his past — this thus being introductory treatment. The author goes on to illustrate that nurses through the ages have used their skills not only to treat patients, but also to alter circumstances to the patients’ advantage. The patient brings his personal, cultural and religious past into hospital with him and cognisance must be taken of this if we wish to succeed in our professional task.
