■ ■ A NURSE WANTED. The Gosttey Home Committee's recommendation that a. certificated nurse be appointed to take control of the nursing of all sick inmates of the Home gave rise to a little discussion at the Charitable Aid Board meeting yesterday afternoon. The chairman (Mr. G. knight) warmly supported the suggestion, saying that now they had an infirmary ward attached to the institution, such an appointment was necessary in the interests of the patients, especially the female ones. Mr. Coyle said he would go one further and suggest a reorganisation of the institution so far as appointing a matron to look after the women's department. A woman was necessary for the care of women. Mr. Mackay thought a medical superintendent was what was wanted now that they had an infirmary ward where consumptives and other sufferers were lodged. An efficient female nurse was also requisite, but, above all, he thought they should appoint a medical superintendent. Mr. Rutherford thought the whole matter should be allowed to stand over ■until a report had been obtained respecting the financial aspect. A competent nurse would mean _£ 100 a year, and although he thoroughly agreed with the suggestion, he thought the financial position needed inquiry before they took any steps to make any other appointments. Mr. Johns agreed with Mr. Rutherford j respecting the financial position being ascertained, but at the same time considered that the appointment of a competent resident nurse was an early necessity. It was ultimately decided to defer the matter for one month.
