More Information

Another word sometimes applied to the person a Federation patient might refer to as a "nurse" is rachwI'. The verb rach has been translated variously as "invigorate," "fortify," and "strengthen." Thus rachwI' (rach plus the suffix -wI' one who does) is an invigorator, fortifier, strengthener. When used in reference to a person, the verb rach suggests an improvement in health; when used in reference to an inanimate object, say, a mechanical device or the hull of a ship, rach also implies improvement or betterment.
