The history of the hospitals in UK are so interesting–Bethlem (or Bedlam hospital). I'm not sure of the actual date, but I think it opened around 1200s as a convent or something then in the 1300s became a hospital–and it is still a hospital! Not sure if it is in the original location though…As an RN..I love reading the history of medicine and the care people received over the centuries–Good and bad. When I was in Greece I got a picture of ancient medical equipment--some equipment not that dramatically different than we use today.
