BARRY NURSING ASSOCIATION. The Executive Committee of the Barry District Nursing Association beld their monthly meeting at the Nurses' Home. Barry Docks, on Tuesday evening last, when there were present—Mr J. Davies (in the chair), Mrs Bray, Mrs Pointon Newman, Rev O. J. Clarke, Dr Budge, Messrs J. Blainey, T. Williams, J. H. Brough, E. J. Llewellin, F. Sharp, and J. A. Hughes (hon. secretary). Mr Hughes reported that several of the churches in the town intended taking up a collection in aid of the funds of the Association, and that the Cardiff Union Bourd of Guardians had decided to increase their annual subscription from P.40 to £ 75. Mr S. Fisher wrote stating that the Barry Coal- trimmers contributed weekly to a Charitable Institutions Fund, and the Nursing Association was one of the institutions that benefitted thereby. Miss Rice (the superintendent) reported that during the past month 102 cases had been attended, to which 1,642 visits had been paid, and there still remained on the books 57 cases.—Miss Rice was given permission to engage temporary assistance if necessary. A discussion took place with reference to engaging a nurse to take charge of a maternity ward which it was intended to open in connection with the Home, and who, in her spare time, could nurse cases at the usual fee.—Dr Budge said that several of the doctors were not in favour of the nurse going out nursing because he said a trained nurse would not call in the services of a doctor, whereas an untrained nurse would.—Mr Hughes failed to see how the nurse would in any way interfere with the medical profession.—Eventually it was decided to hold a special meeting of the Committee to discuss the matter with the doctors. The ordinary meeting of the executive was fixed for the second Friday in the month.
