The official medical records explain the high mortality from disease at Scutari

by Dr Mike Hinton, Crimean War Research Society

It has been reported that after the Crimean War Florence Nightingale suffered from severe feelings of ‘repressed guilt’ for the high mortality in the hospital at Scutari in Turkey. This was a tragic development as a re-assessment of the official medical records confirms the underlying causes lay in the Crimea and that this disaster was reflected in the situation at Scutari during the months after her arrival. When matters were rectified in the Crimea the troops’ health improved and seriously ill patients were not then sent to Turkey; and this resulted in a welcome reduction in the mortality in hospitals on the Bosphorus.
