My sincere condolences to the family of Ms. Hutchinson.
As a registered nurse she gave this pledge:
The Florence Nightingale Pledge:
"I solemnly pledge myself before God
and in the presence of this assembly to faithfully practice my profession of nursing.
I will do all in my power to make and maintain the highest standards and practices of my profession.
I will hold in confidence all personal matters committed to my keeping in the practice of my calling. I will assist the physician in his work and will devote myself to the welfare of my patients, my family, and my community.
I will endeavor to fulfill my rights and privileges as a good citizen and take my share of responsibility in
promoting the health and welfare of the community.
I will constantly endeavor to increase my knowledge and skills in nursing and to use them wisely. I will zealously seek to nurse those who are ill wherever they may be and whenever
they are in need.
I will be active in assisting others in safeguarding and promoting the health and happiness of mankind."
