Help a nurse on training
could any native speaker read and correct the following abstract ? It has been sent to me by a nurse on training (she was one of my pupils a long time ago).
Thanks a lot

The quality of home care                

                As a student in Nursing, as part of the assessment of her Teaching Unit 3.4 "Introduction to the research process," she had to write an end-of-study dissertation on a real life situation.

                During one of her second year courses she experienced a situation with private nurses probably common but which she dealt with in her graduation dissertation.

Indeed, she went several times into a patient ´s unsanitary house, which made her wonder: In an environment where the rules of hygiene are difficult to apply, what are the possible means available to the private nurses to enable them to provide quality care?”

                To try to understand this, she chose to treat the following concepts using materials she could find and books: the nurse, the quality of care, hygiene and the patient ´s environment.

Following the development of these concepts, a problem has emerged: "How is the quality of the environment involved in quality care and in the patient ´s welfare? But assumptions also appeared:
                - If the patient improved his environment, the nurse could make a liberal quality care.
                - Home care would be high-quality care if the patient paid as much attention to his personal hygiene as to his environment.

              She subsequently had two interviews with two nurses to gain additional information on the subject.

                This work allowed her to have a thorough look on her future professional practice and think about how she would have faced a similar situation if one day it became a liberal nurse.
