Historical information

Bandaging was used extensively in patient care for many years. The class has been taken outside the practical room, which was in the South Wing of the Nurses Home. Wounds were often large, requiring complex dressings and secure bandaging.


To be competent at bandaging was a fundamental nursing skill for many years and great emphasis was put on it during training.
