‘It is noteworthy that the nurse is expected to be efficient not only in taking care of the body by giving proper food and medicine, but …. is also expected to take care of the patient’s mental condition. It is well known that the kindness of doctors and nurses is almost as efficient as medicine for the patient’s morale and recovery. When one is desperately ill or helpless, a kind word or a gentle act becomes the source of comfort and hope.’      Lily de Silva 1993
