About Us

lamps

“A Tradition worth saving.”

Today we use the symbol of the lamp to mark your transition from student to one of service – lighting the way into your future.

Florence Nightingale used a lamp to light her way as she brought comfort and hope to the wounded soldiers during the Crimean War. Florence Nightingale became known as “The Lady with the lamp” and as a tribute to her dedication, the lamp icon became symbolic of nursing. The lamp shines as a symbol of the care and devotion a dedicated nurse gives to the sick and injured.

We aim to serve you with the best quality, service and price on your lamps.

I took over for my mother Charlotte Summerfield of The Pin People when she retired in 2011. I have learned so much from the nurses and students I have worked with over the past several years and have been grateful for the wonderful friendships gained. There is nothing better than a good nurse when you are in the hospital, scared and in pain, or one in an office setting who can be a calming presence, making shots fun (or at least not as traumatic!) for little kids as well as big ones.

I love speaking to Nursing Directors, faculty, staff and students. Those who are training, equipping or on the road to becoming great nurses, who will show kindness and compassion to their patients. Ones who will administer care in such a way that says to their patient that they are worthy of respect and care as a human being. What a wonderful calling to be known for compassion and caring and to do it with competence and professionalism.
