The hospitals in Florence at the time of the Medici, almost certainly they functioned better than those existing today in Italy.
The rest, between the '400 and' 500, the Tuscan city became the most important of Europe and laid down the law in every field.
Here is what is reported by John Lucas Dubreton in his book Daily life in Florence at the time of the Medici:
“When the patient is conducted in one of the many city hospitals, finds comfort enviable: abundant food, beverage choices, competent nurses, bedroom and linen immaculate”.
I medici however, at the time they were not held in high regard, but this is another topic and I will cover this in a specific post (Photo gives: dtesis.univr.it).
