London Hospital Register of Sisters and nurses - 'Oct 25th 1880 Aged 23 Night Nurse Transferred Oct 31st 1881 to Harrison ward " March 25th 1882 to Charlotte ward " July 23rd 1882 to Auquela ward Jane Turner's service was retained longer and her faults encouraged by the culpable weakness and fatal example of the sister under whom she worked. Jane Turner had excellent health and was a good nurse when she chose to act upon the knowledge she possessed but she was noisy, bustling and intensely deceptive at all times. Neither doctors, nurses and myself could feel the slightest confidence in her. It was difficult to formulate the definite complaint that would at any time have procured her dismissal. On leaving - resigned in consequence or serious complaints from patients. Left Oct 6th 1887.'
