Reader's Companion to U.S. Women's History, Nursing Profession:"Modern nursing, a predominately although not exclusively women's field, began during the Civil War, when those women who volunteered to nurse sick and wounded soldiers proved that careful attention to proper sanitation, nourishing diets, cleanliness, and comfort dramatically cut shockingly high morbidity and mortality rates. After the war the volunteers spearheaded a movement for formal nurses' training. Simultaneously, hospitals also recognized a need for more skilled, disciplined, and competent nurses to improve the quality and efficiency of care. By the early twentieth century women wishing to nurse "bartered" two or three years of service to hospitals in exchange for a diploma that promised entry into a respectable, autonomous form of work, free from the constraints that accompanied other "women's" occupations, such as teaching, factory labor, or domestic service. But it was not always a fair exchange. Hospitals quickly recognized student labor as a cheap and easily exploited commodity. They structured training around their own staffing needs. Upon graduation, nurses found themselves in sex-stereotyped, overcrowded, and isolated practice, competing for jobs with poorly trained women and also with new nursing graduates."

Hemorrhoids: Hemorrhoids are swollen rectal veins in the anal and rectal area. They can cause burning, painful discomfort, and bleeding. External hemorrhoids are small swellings that are easy to see and quite painful. Anal itching is common. Internal hemorrhoids are usually painless.

Rectal bleeding, Definition, Virtual Medical Centre (Australia, pictures, photos):"Rectal bleeding, also known as haematochezia, refers to the passage of bright blood (often mixed with clots or stools) via the rectum. The rectum is the final 15cm of the colon (large intestine) where faeces accumulate before being expelled from the body via the anal canal. Rectal bleeding can be due to bleeding from anywhere in the lower gastrointestinal tract namely the colon, rectum or anus. Rectal bleeding is a very common complaint in the general population and affects up to 15% of adults. Unfortunately not all these people report their symptoms to their doctors which is dangerous as a small proportion of rectal bleeding is due to an underlying colorectal carcinoma. The majority of cases however will be due to a self-limiting condition affecting the anus or rectum but it is still important that you see a doctor."

Rectal bleeding during pregnancy, What could cause rectal bleeding during pregnancy? Babycenter.com:"Rectal bleeding is typically caused by hemorrhoids varicose veins in and around the rectum. Hemorrhoids are relatively common during pregnancy, particularly in the last trimester and in the weeks after giving birth. If you strain during a bowel movement, pass hard stools, or rub when you wipe, these swollen veins may bleed. Anal fissures are another cause of rectal bleeding. These painful cracks in the skin of the anus may be caused by passing hard stools as a result of constipation, which is common during pregnancy."

Rectal Bleeding, The Diagnosis, Jackson Siegelbaum Gastroenterology:"The Medical History - What is the patient's age? Older people tend to have polyps and cancer more often. Is there anal pain and a hard, large stool associated with bleeding? A tear of the anus (fissure) may be the answer. Does blood drip into the toilet after a bowel movement? Bleeding hemorrhoids may be the problem. The color and frequency of the bleeding are additional considerations. In most cases, the medical history provides clues, but never the final answer. The Visual and Digital Exam - The physician will inspect the anal area looking for tears and hemorrhoids. A finger exam can provide information when there is tenderness or a tumor inside. In men, the prostate is also examined."

Rectal bleeding, The University of Iowa:"Rectal bleeding can be a sign of many different problems. Some causes can be serious. All rectal bleeding requires a medical check- up. Bright red blood may be seen only on toilet paper or in the toilet bowl after a bowel movement. This is usually from a hemorrhoid or anal fissure. A hemorrhoid is a swollen vein in the anal area. A fissure is a split in the anal mucosal surface. Both cause difficult and painful bowel movements. Blood in the stool may also indicate an inflamed rectum or colon. These could become serious conditions. They usually are present with other symptoms. An inflamed rectum is usually caused by an infection. The cause of an inflamed colon is usually unknown."

Rectal Bleeding, University of Michigan Health System, What are the symptoms? :"Rectal bleeding is bright red blood on a bowel movement, on toilet tissue after wiping, or in the toilet water. You may or may not have some pain with passing the bowel movement. If you have external hemorrhoids, you may have pain when you sit. If you have diverticula, you may have no symptoms or you may have bouts of abdominal pain. Sometimes you may have bouts of pain with fever for a day or two if the diverticula are inflamed or infected. When colon cancer is the cause of bright red bleeding, it may be your only symptom or you may have other symptoms. These other symptoms may include diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain, weight loss, loss of appetite, and tiredness. Colon cancer is not a common cause of rectal bleeding. It is more common for colon cancer to cause blood to be in the bowel movement but not be visible. Special tests of the bowel movement are necessary to show that blood is present."

Rectal Bleeding, Self-Care at Home, WebMD.com:"If minimal rectal bleeding, such as blood-streaked toilet tissue, is the source of the problem, it may be due to hemorrhoids or a rectal fissure. Home therapy can be attempted. All other causes of rectal bleeding should be evaluated and treated by a physician in a timely fashion. Self-care of rectal bleeding may include various rectal ointments and suppositories. These can be bought over-the-counter without a prescription. Still, if your symptoms are not improved within 1 week of treatment or you are older than 40 years, you should see your doctor for further evaluation. Simple home care of rectal bleeding might involve these actions: Drink 8-10 glasses of water per day. Bathe or shower daily to cleanse the skin around the anus. Decrease straining with bowel movements. Increase fiber in the diet with supplements such as Metamucil or foods such as prunes. Avoid sitting on the toilet too long. Apply ice packs to the affected area to decrease pain."
