proud to be an angel in the sickroom. thanks to ms. florence nightingale and thanks ms.B for sharing this.☺️ RG @iamsuperbianca: Blown away by this data visualisation from 1858! Florence Nightingale, nurse and statistician, created this rose diagram and learned that it wasn’t war that was causing most of the deaths at the time. Each portion of the circular projection is a month - black represents deaths from wars, red represents deaths from wounds, and blue represents deaths from preventable diseases as in diseases that could be avoided if hospitals are clean and care is proper. So many lives were saved after this. This, over a century ago! #BritishLibrary #BeautifulScience #dataviz #nurse #facts #amazing 👍
