250 Renfrew Street.
The objects of this Institution are to induce women
of high character to devote themselves to the work of
nursing the siclc, to educate them for their work, and
employ them either to nurse patients in the Estab-
lishment or at their residences. The Home in Renfrew
Street has been so arranged as to provide suitable
accommodation for the ladies in charge and for S3
nurses, 10 rooms for private patients, and 2 wards
with beds for 10 patients, operating room, nurses'
dining room, servants' rooms, sewing room, linen
room, committee room, kitchen and laundry accom-
modation, stores room, nurses' box room, lavatories,
and other necessary conveniences. Persons desir-
ous of being admitted into the Home can receive
board, lodging, medical attendance, and nursing,
either in private rooms, or in the public wards, on
terms which may be learned by applying to the lady
superintendent; and they may be attended either by
the physicians and surgeons attached to the Institu-
tion, or by their own medical advisers. In the latter
case, however, the fees of the medical advisers form
an additional charge. Persons suffering from infec-
tious disorders are not admitted into the Home, but
may be attended at their private residences by nurses
trained in the Institution. The charge for nurses
sent out to wait in private families varies according
to the nature of the case, and may also be ascertained
by applying to the lady superintendent.
