Answer preview

Nightingale argued that certain environmental factors could adversely affect the healing process of patients. As such, nurses should endeavor to ensure patients have access to proper ventilation, lighting, fresh and pure air, and direct sunlight to help them heal (Cardoso et al., 2021). Ensuring this happens is becoming quite challenging in contemporary clinical settings, especially in underdeveloped health care facilities. Sensitizing nurses and hospital administrators about the importance of these environmental factors in the healing process is a significant future need in nursing. Doing this will ensure nurses are not focused on patient therapy but rather on patient healing.
