The Home was established for retired nurses who are Members of the R.B.N.A.; its Rules are very few and are merely such as to ensure the safety and comfort of those in the Home. We are greatly indebted to Dr. Strange, Hon. Physician to the Home, for his goodness to the nurses during attacks of illness, He has been most kind, and it has been no small relief to the Sister-in-Charge to feel that she may call upon him for help, even during the busiest season, if there is any case of illness in the Home.

Volume 57, 12th August 1916 (p144) - CENTRAL MIDWIVES BOARD
A Special Meeting of the Central Midwives Board was held at Caxton Hall, Westminster, on Friday, August 4th, for the purpose of hearing the charges alleged against two certified midwives. Sir Francis Chanipnep presided. The first case taken was that of Mrs. Ellenor Strange (No. 4882), a midwife working in the area of the London County Council. Miss Strange was present, and was defended by her solicitor. Dr. Macrory, the inspector, and other representatives of the L:C.C. were also present. The charges were mainly in connection with neglecting to explain that medical help was necessary in cases of ophthalmia neoaatorum. The charges were admitted in two of the cases, and denied, or withdrawn in others, but in one the baby was blind and in another practically so. Mr. Matthews, who defended the midwife very ably, took up, in our view, an unfortunate line of defence when he addressed the Board on his client's behalf. The Board, he contended, had to deal with two sets of people, the first coming from an intelligent class, who were able to pass a stiff examination, and the second derived from a class whose experience and manipulation was good, but who would never be able to pass an examination. The first mentioned midwife would send for a doctor at once and place the responsibility upon him. The latter often had a conscientious feeling that, having been paid for a job, she must go through with it. That, he believed, was the motive actuating his client. The Board decided to remove Mrs. Strange from the Roll, but the Chairman informed her that if the L.C.C. were persuaded later that she was thoroughly trustworthy she might apply to be reinstated.

A Scottish correspondent writes :-On Monday evening, February 10th the Corporation of Edinburgh held a reception for the nurses of their own Hospital, and, those of Edinburgh generally in the Music Hall and Assembly Rooms. There were over 400 nurses resent in uniform, over 60 belonging to the City Hospital. The Matrons included Miss Strange, of Chalmer's Hospital. The nurses were presented to the Senior Magistrate by the City Office and it was a pretty sight as they walked past, each set headed by their Matron. The Hospital uniforms were pretty and neat, but some of the private nurses were conspicuous for general untidiness and a want of nurse-like appearance. They looked as if they were got up for a Fancy Ball, and the way their hair and unfortunate caps were distorted caused great amusement to their more businesslike sisters, and may we say heartache to some of the Matrons. Two Army Sisters were present and their dresses were very pretty. The Queen's Nurses, as usual, looked neat and businesslike. We wish that all nurses were as strictly kept as regards uniform as the soldiers, and that the Matrons would not. give up the nursing dress. Lord Robert does not lead the Army in an evening coat with a flower in his button-hole.
