JOINT REPORT OF VICE-PRESIDENT AND THE DIRECTOR 43 

Richard Mil liken Building— This building is now the Hospital 
only building on the grounds of the Charity Hospital Buildings 
which is not occupied. The Board of Administrators has 
under consideration plans for the renovation- and use of 
tills building as one of the postwar projects of this 
Hospital 

Lapeyre-MIItenberger Building— On April 1, 1944, the 
Lapeyre-Milteuberger Building was placed in operation for 
the care of convalescent patients and has functioned 
satisfactorily throughout the year. By the facilities af- 
forded in this building, it has been possible to transfer 
convalescent patients from our active medical and surgi- 
cal wards, thus making available more hospital beds for 
the use of acute cases and at the same time affording 
to our convalescent patients the opportunity to spend 
their convalescence In pleasant surroundings with con- 
stant medical and nursing attention. 

Delgado Building— On May 8, 1944, this building was 
placed in operation for the treatment of Venereal Di- 
seases- This building was leased to the State Board of 
Health and has been constantly operated throughout 
the year for the treatment of women with venereal di- 
seases. The facilities afforded by the use of this building 
has made possible the treatment of hundreds of young 
women who are victims of venereal diseases, and has 
been of great assistance to the surrounding community 
in the prevention of venereal disease, with particular 
reference to the armed forces of our Government, at 
whose suggestion this building was made available for 
this purpose. 

Old Female Medical Building— The 3rd floor of this 
building has been in use for the care of poliomyelitis 
cases During the past year, because of the increased 
demands made on the poliomyelitis unit, It was necessary 
to completely repair and renovate the 2nd floor, thus 
tK available approximately sixty beds for the care 
of poliomyelitis cases. From July 1, 1944 to June 30, 
1945, there were 103 cases of poliomyelitis admitted and 
treated in this center. 85% of all poliomyelitis cases 
throughout the entire State which has been reported to 
the Louisiana State Department of Health, were admitted 
and treated in this poliomyelitis center. This is truly 
a Statewide project, and is the only unit of this kind in 
operation Sn the entire South. 

Colored Tuberculosis Building— This entire building 

«*en completely repaired and renovated and is de- 

exclusively to the care of colored tuberculosis 

cases. There Is a continuous waiting list of patients 

who wish to be admitted to this building and the build- 

a always crowded, 

Dlbert Memorial Building— This building Is set aside 
tot the care of white tuberculosis cases, and Is fully 
at all times. 

I desire to again call the attention of all indftrid- 
;ihority in the State of Louisiana to the great 



H CHARITY HOSPITAL— 1944-1945 



need for additional facilities for the care of tuberculosa 
patients. Tuberculosis units In this Hospital 
primarily for the care of acute tuberculosis < 
other words, those which are susceptible to \ 
and for whom something can be done. It is m 
fortunate that this Hospital is forced to care for a larr* 
number of chronic incurable tuberculosis cases cases 
which mtle can be done from the standpoint of Xht 
posslhll ty of a cure, and y*t it is impossible for this 
Hospita to discharge these cases, both from a humar* 
standpoint because they have no place to go, and I 
the standpoint of safety of the citizens of our State b*> 
cause these individuals constitute a constant men 
other people unless adequate protection Is thrown about 
them. Because our beds are occupied by these rhron 
cases, it is Impossible for this Hospital to rendi^ t£ei 
men t to many early cases of tuberculosis which is m« 
unfortunate because it is a well established fact IhaT^

function as a dormitory for use by graduate nurse* who

abil ty of this building has materially assisted tho Hor 
pltal in maintaining a skeleton staff of graduate aura 
The housing situation In New Orleans has been i»« 
difficult and this building has provided convenient 
fortable quarters for our graduate nurses, many or who' 
were unable to obtain suitable living accommodation?

pletely repaired and renovated and is being used aa nit

JOINT REPORT OF VICE-PRESIDENT AND THE DIRECTOR 45 

Waters Home^This building is used exclusively by 

t*€ Sisters of Charity who are assigned to this Hospital 

1 affords them living quarters and a chapel for their 

Migious devotions, It has been kept In excellent slate 

air and we propose to do everything possible to 

keep these fine women comfortably housed. 

The Main Building — The settlement of the Main Hoa- 
atai Building Is becoming more and more stabilized and 
th* rate of settlement is decreasing. The settlement 
taring this (past year has been more even throughout 
haa previously. This continuous settlement is a con- 
stant source of expense to the Hospital In that repair 
rew* must be constantly on duty repairing the damage 
one. No apparent structural damage exists and all 
-unities or this building are In an excellent state of 

Covered Passageways— Covered walks have been 

3 throughout the Hospital grounds giving protection 

> the Hospital employees, to the patients, to the doctors 

i to the Sisters and nurses. A covered walk leading 

i the Students Nurses quarters* which is some distance 

>»ay from the Main Building, hag afforded for the first 

^me protection to our nurses during Inclement weather 

i! their trips to and from the Main Hospital Building. 

Laundry — The Charity Hospital operates the largest Mechanical 

**undry In the City of New Orleans, and this department Departments 

has operated satisfactorily throughout the year. It is 

ceaaary at this time to call your attention to the fact 

that some of the mechanical equipment in the Lanudry 

* badly worn and unquestionably will have to be replaced. 

Warehouse — This building has provided excellent ser- 
ii^hout the year; however, It is far too small, 
md additional space should be provided. At the present 
time sufficient storage space is not available and because 
f this fact it is Impossible for the Hospital to take ad- 
vantage of lower prices obtainable when merchandise Is 
bought in large quantities. This has worked a (particular 
hardahfp during the past year because of the uncertainty 
t being unable to obtain merchandise at all, and the 
of purchasing in quantities whenever merchan- 
4!s« was available. 

Hospital Garage — This building has been maintained 

a a satisfactory condition and has rendered good ser-

The Federal Government, through Its Procurement and

Nuralng Service — This important department of the Hospital 

al is charged with the actual nursing care of the Departments 
During normal times this Hospital employed v 

graduate nurses. During the past fiscal year, 
were only approximately 240 graduate nurses on 
n this Institution. In addition, the employment of 
maids, orderlies, etc. has presented a difficult 
m because of our inability to obtain and hoi3 
trained individuals. 

Volunteer Organizations — Very splendid service has 

: by volunteers. We are happy to call at- 

24.913 hours of service rendered by the 

mteer nurses aids sponsored by the New Orleans

trlty Hospital School of Nursing— This is the 

Lining school for nurses in the South. During 

raal times this training school had an enrollment of 

approximately 225 students. At the request of the Fed- 



i! CHARITY HOSPITAL— 1944-1 945 



eral Government, we entered into the Federal TV 
Program for nurses and because of this program at tkt 
end of the past fiscal year there was an enroling 
approximately 700 student nurses in our School cor 
ing, 1 believe, the largest group of undergraduate < 
nurses in the United States. The Hospital is very dW 
of the accomplishments of this group and they are tt 
wise, cognizant of the great service rendered this* Ins 
tutlon by these under-grsduate student nurses with* 
whose assistance it would have been absolutely hn 
sible for us to have given service to our patients 
Interesting to call your attention to the duu, 
schools affiliated with Charity Hospital School of 
ing. Ten schools of nursing located within the 
of Louts ana are affiliated with this school, and tTiaft^ 
schools located out of the State. By means of thtei 
filiation student nurses from smaller hospitals are? 
mitted by varying periods of time in order that tfat 
obtain training in departments in which their own 
piiais are deficient. Sister Henrietta is to be hiKhlv « 
mended for her efficient handling of this departr: 

Ncuroptychiatric Unit— During the past v. 
Hospital set up and placed in operation a uir 
to the care of neuropsychiatry patients. Th<" 
and doors of this unit have steel guards offering i 
quate protection to our patients. Prior to the estlhH* 
ment of this unit there were forty beds in the H™ 
set aside for the case of this class of patients 
unit at the present time we have 84 bed 
patients can be carefully supervised and Occupation 
recreational therapy can be planned for them Thu 
is under the supervision of Sister Juliana, who ha< 
special work in neuropsychiatry nursing. 

During the first part of June, two head nur*«« *>- 
away for supplementary work in neuropaychiatrlc nur 
in order to be able to assist in supervision and ma 
meat of this unit While it is not yet possible toTft 
in this small unit all forms of therapy needed hv 
patients we believe that a forward step has b 
towards a more efficient and more modem admi 
of neuropsychiatrlc care. 

Special Infant Unit— In conjunction with the I ™r< 
ana State Board of Health, the Children's Bureai- 
Department of Labor iin Washington, D, C 
being made for the establishment in the S 
center for pcfct-graduate training in the nursing 
mature infants. Charity Hospital was asfc> 
pate in this program. Plans include the en 
tion of supervisory staff members. The Chi; 
and the State Department of Health are i>rm 
ships to send nurses from our staff to recoi 
of training for advanced courses in thenurain* ■ 
mature infants. Additional equipment has

stalled in the unit. By means of the care of our pre- 
iture infants this Hospital has been able to reduce the 
mortality in this group of our patients from over 70% 
J less that 30%, and we hope to reduce it still further. 

Emergency Rooms and Ambulance Service — The emer- 
gency rooms of the Hospital operate on a 24-honr basis. 
Approximately 95ofe of all accident and emergency cases 
throughout New Orleans area are sent to this depart- 
ment as the Charity Hospital maintains the only emer- 
gency ambulance service in the City of New Orleans. 
The Hospital operates five ambulances which are on duty 
4-honrs per day. Because of the depletion of our resi- 
dent staff, the Hospital has been forced to operate these 
ambulance without physicians being In attendance ex- 
cept in cases where It is necessary for us to send a 
Physician. The ambulances are almost worn out and 
will have to be replaced as quickly as possible. 

During the past year Charity Hospital ambulances 
answered 1 1,122 calls, at an average time per call of 28.3 
talnutes from the time the call was received to the time 
the patient was brought into the Hospital, 

During the past year 65,424 patients were seen and 
treated in the emergency or accident rooms of this Instl* 
tution, an average of 180 cases every 24-hours. 

Every accfdent case referred to this Hospital is, of 
course, taken care of. These patients are all investigated 
and those found ineligible for treatment within this In- 
■n are sent invoices for all services rendered them, 
tad ail such funds, when collected, are remitted to the 
General Fund of the State of Louisiana. 

X-ray Department — During the past fiscal year, it 
*aa necessary to purchase additional x-ray equipment 
in order to give adequate service to our patients. This 
»** partly because some of the equipment in use in 
the Hospital bad worn out, but in addition, the Hospital 
is striving to render better service to those patients who 
*ro suffering with inoperable cancers, as well as to im- 
prove the diagnostic services in this Institution. Because 
Bf the purchase of this equipment, it was necessary to 
rearrange a portion of the space set aside for the s-ray 
department. 

Through the cooperation of the Louisiana State Board 

•'aUh, arrangements have been made for conducting 
*n x-ray survey of all patients applying to the Admitting 
Rooms of this Hospital. When in operation, this unit 

Id furnish the Hospital with a record of from $00 to 
1000 chest pictures per day, These records w T ill be of In- 

i.ible value in establishing the rate of tuberculosis 
among our patients. It will doubtless uncover many 
*arly treatable cases of tuberculosis and will give valu- 
able records for statisticians who wish to make studies 
concerning the number of tuberculosis cases in this sec* 

Of Louisiana.

A beautiful tribute was paid to our Sister Stanislaus Sister 

by the people of New Orleans when she was selected as Stanislaus 
the recipient of the Times-Picayune Loving Cup. Sister 
Stanislaus is known, far and wide, as New Orleans 1 most 
beloved woman. She has devoted a lifetime to the ser- 
vice of the poor of this community and State. The poor 
of Louisiana can never properly express their gratitude 
to this little woman who has served them for more than 
•txty years. The example set by her has been a constant 
source of inspiration to all with whom she baa come in 
contact — thousands of doctors, nurses, and others, whose 
lives have touched hers, have been enriched by such con* 
tact. Her many admirers are v&ry happy because of this 
well deserved public acknowledgement and tribute which 
was paid to Sister Stanislaus. 

The Hospital authorities wish to express their appre- Acknowledgments

July 1st, 1944 

To the Board of Administrators and Doctor O, P. Daly, Director 
Charity Hospital of Louisiana at New Orleans. 

Gentlemen: 

The departments conducted by the Sisters have suffered soniev 
a setback during the past year because of war conditions. Despite 
effort to keep standards on a high level, circumstances beyond on 
trot forced us to accept conditions and practices easily recognized 
ferlor to those of previous years. 

Many of these conditions came about because of our inabi 
ploy or retain competent personnel. Some were due to excess 
of supplies and materials, and others arose out of the fmpossihilttv 
re placing worn out equipment. 

We realize that an institution such as this could not compel. 
prevailing wages in war industries, but a raise in the minimum b 
and periodic salary increases for meritorious service would have 
much to prevent the turnover of personnel so detrimental to good 
A fair living wage is due all of our employees, but we have had 
reason to deplore the salaries offered to our subsidiary group, W 
assured of your sympathy with this problem and we are aware, too 
the reduction in our appropriation is the main reason for our 
during this past fiscal year. However, we face another year on a 
budget with apprehension. We can only trust and pray that some Ttt&s* 
will be found to ameliorate the conditions now prevailing, 

The reports of the Sisters' Divisions follow*. We take this oppo: 
to thank you for your constant solicitude and Interest in our behalf 
also wish to express the gratitude of all of the Sisters toward th 
ment heads, the medical staff and all personnel in the hospital for 
continued cooperation and help. 

Respectfully, submitted, 

SrSTER STANISLAUS, 

Director, Sisters' Di via Ions. 



NURSING DIVISION 11T 



NURSING DEPARTMENT 

To the Board of Administrators and Doctor O. P. Daly, Director, 
Charity Hospital of Louisiana at New Orleans: 

are happy to present the annual report of the Nursing Depart- 
ment for the year ending June 30, 1945, 

In reviewing the activities of the past fiscal year, we feel that there 
« very little to relate that is new or different. We have passed through 
the crisis of the war hut we are still acutely in need of personnel, and 
toany new projects must wait until nurses and other trained workers 
again become available. 

The report of the Nursing Department will he divided into the Nurs- 
tag Service section and the School of Nursing section. 

NURSING SERVICE DIVISION 
Nursing Situation in the Hospital 

The care of our numerous patients has presented overwhelming 
ftoalties during the past year because of the continued loas of graduate 
flams, Our total graduate nurse staff as of June 30, 1945 Is 247. Many 
rt these nurses are holding teaching and supervisory positions, and only 

w general staff nurses are left to give stability to our nursing service 
Wogram. Patients are cared for almost entirely by student nurses. We 
*r* proud of the service rendered by our students during this trying per* 
:owever, they are following an accelerated program and some of the 
departments have suffered a great deal because of the rapid turnover 
°f nurses, 

splendid service has been rendered by volunteers, and we are 

k*PP.v to call attention to the 24,913 hours of service rendered toy the 

£ Volunteer Nurses' Aides sponsored by the New Orleans Red Cross 

The work of the nurses has been supplemented by that ren- 

I by these aides, and our tribute of gratitude to them is very deep 

*ftd sincere, 

Opening of NeuropsychUtric Unit 

We have long recognized the need for a special unit for Neuropsychi- 
atry patients, who have always presented great difficulties on the general 
Boors. Thei*c patients formerly occupied four wards, with approximately 
d», and there was a constant problem of over-patients on these wards. 

Beginning on June 7* these patients were transferred to a Neuro- 

teychiatrJc Unit consisting of eight wards, located in the center wings 

°t third and fourth floors, and having a total capacity of 84 beds. Here 

its can be carefully supervised, and occupational and recrea* 

I therapy can be planned for them. The unit is under the direction 

°f Sister Juliana, who has had special work in Neuropsychiatries Nursing. 

during the first part of June, two head nurses went away for supple- 

iry work in Neouropsychiatric Nursing, In order to be able to assist 

pervlslon and management of the unit 

While it is not yet possible to execute in a small unit all forms of 
j>y needed by the patients, we believe that a forward step has been 
toade toward the more efficient and more modern administration of 
KeuropsychiatrSc care. 

To make room for the new N euro psychiatric Unit, It was necessary 
>pen several wards on the seventh floor for male genilo-urtnary pa- 



Ug C'TAPTTY H05PITAL^1944-194fi 



UenU ; Since male E. E. N. T. patients were already occupying war 
that floor, there are now only two wards, with about fifty beds 
remaining vacant on the seventh floor. 

Plan* for Special Infant Unit 

In conjunction with the Louisiana State Board of Health, the 
? n J?« Bureau, Department of Labor, Washington, la making plana I 
establishment in the South of a center for postgraduate training v 
nursing of premature infants. Charity Hospital was asked to parti, 
in this program because of the number of premature infants we ha 
all times. Plans include the special preparation of supervisory staff rnen^ 
hers The Children's Bureau and the State Department of Health ar* 
providing scholarships to send nurses from our staff to recognized < < 
of training, for advanced courses in the nursing of premature infants. 

Additional equipment has been ordered for the Special Infant 
We are wafting for 28 Gordon-Armstrong Incubators and 2 Mfn; 
Tber-Mo-Cribs. Individual heating and humidifying apparatus and add* 
tionai plumbing have been installed in the unit 

.1 * J i Is & lannGfl th at the course in premature infant nursing will tv 
tlated when our unit is able to meet the standards set up by the 
drens Bureau. Our greatest problem at the present time is the la. 
trained personnel.

Clinical Teaching Program 

The clinical teaching, or ward teaching program, as it is commonly 
I, was greatly strengthened during the past year because of the ap- 
pointment of several clinical instructors who devote their entire time to 
the teaching of students. While they teach their specialties in the class- 
room, most of their time is spent in teaching ward classes and in follow- 
up work with students on the patient floors. The purpose of the ward 
teaching program is to assist the students In applying to the actual pra- 
ties of caring for patients, the principles which they learn in the classroom 
and the laboratory; This will result, we believe, in a superior quality of 
nursing care, 

Participation in the Cadet Nurse Corps 

Ninety-six per cent of our students are members of the U. S. Cadet 
le Corps, We received from the federal government during the past 
fiscal year a total of $215,667.40 for the education of the Cadet Nurses. 
Miss Elsie Berdan, Nursing Education Consultant of the U, S. Public 
Health Service, made a survey of the School of Nursing this spring, re~ 
porting favorably on our program. 

According to the provisions of the Cadet Nurse Corps, our cadet stu- 
dents are privileged to reauest a transfer to one of the Federal hospitals 
for the senior cadet period, which is their last six months in training. 
Fifty per cent of each of our classes has been released for this purpose. 
The other cadets remained with us, and a few senior cadets from other 
ftcboote transferred here for their senior cadet period. As senior cadets 
prove to be in actual practice comparable to graduate nurses in value of 
service, we used them to advantage during our shortage of graduate 
nurses. 

Appreciation 

We wish to express our sincere gratitude to the members of the 
Board of Administrators, to Doctor Daly, and to Dr. Fullen for their con* 
stant Interest in the affairs of the Nursing Department and for their as- 
sistance in working out our problems. We are also grateful for the co- 
operation and assistance rendered by the heads of other departments, the 
medical staff and the members of the teaching staffs of the Louisiana 
State University School of Medicine and the Tulane University School of 
Medicine.

APPRECIATION 

In spite of war conditions, a few much needed pieces of small equip- 
ment were acquired during the year. Two dishwashing machines, pantry 
trucks, and other much needed minor equipment were procured and 
are much appreciated. 

This year has found food and equipment costs still rising, and pro- 
visions very difficult to secure. The combined efforts or the Purchasing 
Department. Personnel Department, Dietary Department and the Admin- 
istrative Office, have made it possible for us to maintain our department 
fractions at a remarkably high level during this critical time. We are 
**ry grateful to all those who have assisted. 

Ventilation of the floor pantries has been a real benefit to the depart- 
ment, and we are grateful to all who helped make this possible. 

wish to express our appreciation to the Director, the Board of 
Administrators, and the medical staff for the help extended to us through- 
out the year. We are especially grateful to the doctors of both Tulane 
•rsity and Louisiana State University medical schools, who gave so 
freeJy of their time in instructing the dietitian interns, as well as to the 
other departments who also lectured to the students, especially the Nurs- 
ing Service, Housekeeping Department and Social Service Department We 
also wish to thank all departments for their cooperation. 

Respectfully submitted.

To the Board of Directors and Doctor O. P. Daly, Director of the 

Charity Hospital of Louisiana at New Orleans. 
Gentlemen:

SSS2? K 0t cleamn ?* The turnover of personnel has been consider*!* 
reduced by requesting new employees to give one day voluntary 8 erri< 
before they are employed. In this way maids know what is expected < 
them when they accept positions and seem better satisfied, and we aK 
have the opportunity of observing whether they have the ability to foil** 
directions and are physically able to do the work. 

New floor cleaning compounds, which are not soaps, have bet 
traduced, and these have saved a great deal of Iloor mopping labor

on floor machines because the compounds readily dissolve wax, and I

to make gowns for patients, doctors, and nurses. 



m REPORT OF HOUSEKEEPING DEPARTMENT 131 

Throughout the year It has been necessary to issue immediately to 
the wards the linen delivered from the laundry Just off the jpressers. This 
was a source of much difficulty for the Laundry Manager when at times 
he could not arrange to wash it as promptly as it was needed. The work 
in the linen room was also delayed because the morning supply could 
not be estimated and distributed until all the linen from the laundry had 
been delivered. The additional wear on the linen has doubled th© 
amount of mending that must be done daily. Heretofore, there have been 
three seamstresses on full time mending. This past year two additional 
seamstresses were employed to work on mending. It must be remem- 
1. too, that some of the cotton materials are manufactured now with 
a lower thread count, which also reduce wearing quality* Thus, the ad* 
iitional wear on the linen accounts also for the need of a greater output. 
Requisitions for new materials by the various departments have increased 
more rapidly than material can be obtained or made up. 

In view of the present situation we suggest that the purchasing of 

-made hospital gowns be considered, as it seems impossible to get 

sufficient material to make the number of gowns needed for such a large 

tution. Furthermore, the gown manufacturing companies have good 
quality materials which are not available to the hospitals. The immedi- 
ate need for action in this matter is urgent at this time, in order to keep 
ward units and operating rooms supplied with the necessary linen. 

We wish to express our sincere appreciation to the Director and his 
Administrative Staff, and to the Board of Directors for the generous as- 
sistance which has been given to the Housekeeping Division during the 
past year. We gratefully acknowledge also the interest and cooperation 
we have received from all Department Heads. 

Respectfully submitted, 

SISTER CLARISSE

REPORT OF THE SOCIAL SERVICE DEPARTMENT 
July I, 1944 through June 30, 1945 

STAFF 

During the year the turnover in the depart meat waa approxil! 
equal to that uf ihe previous fiscal year. In the entire start there 
14 resignations and 4 requests for leave: 9 resignations and 3 
for leave in the professional staff; and 5 resignations and 1 reque^ 
leave in the clerical staff, There were 14 replacements: 9 in the 
fessional staff and 5 in the clerical staff. There was one pron 
the professional staff: from Medical Social Worker I to Medii 
Worker II. One position, Medical Social Worker II, was abolished be, 
It had been vacant SO days prior to 12-31-44, It had never been po 
to fill this position because only a part time salary was available. 

During the year raises were secured for all but three of the worker?: 
the last three raises were not approved because of lack of funds. 

WORK OF THE DEPARTMENT 

During the year the department carried out its two functions: to pro- 
vide case work services to patients under treatment In Chi* 
wards, clinics, accident and admitting departments, and to ri 
eligibility of applicants for free medical care. 

Case Work Services 

Service Assignments — In 1943-44 it had been possible to eliu, 
general clinic service and divide most of the services on \ and 

clinic basis. In 1944-1945 the division was carried a step further: the ser* 
vices were divided into Tulane and L. S. TJ. instead of v. 
This proved helpful for it not only tended to give the v, 
with their patients and a feeling of being part of a team with the m 
staff, but it also gave the workers experience with both white and 
male and female patients. Work with Negro patients only was ffn 
because of lack of resources In the community for Negroes. 

During the year that one supervisor was on leave, It became 
and more apparent that the department could not function n 
with three supervisors. It was decided, therefore, that one memli 
ease work staff would he promoted to the supervisory staff am; 
the service assignments would be divided among the supervisors, 
advantage of such an arrangement was that it gave the super 
contact with patients. 

Case Load — During the year the workers handled 32,709 cases or ** 
average of 2725.S cases a month as shown hy the following table:

This is the third year that the social admitting system has been in 
effect. The following table shows the work of the Hospital Intake Unit 
for the past two fiscal years:

•The figures for March, 1945 are low as statistical material compiled 
by a volunteer aide was lost 

An analysis of the work of the Hospital Intake Unit for the year 

has shown a steady increase in the number of patients found in- 

fole for free medical care. In 1942*43 the percentage of ineligibility 

was 12#, In 1943-44 28% and for the year 1944-45 38%, the latter per- 

•ze being triple to that of the total for 1942-43, when the unit was 

This is problably due in part to the fact that economic conditions 
have improved in the state as a result of the war, and in part to the fact 
that the workers have become more skilled in interviewing and weeding 
out ineligible patients. 

During the year 22 ineligible patients were admitted because It was 
impossible for them to secure accommodations tn private hospitals. The 
number of ineligible patients were admitted to the hospital during 
rious fiscal year for the same reason. 

STUDENT TRAINING PROGRAM 

Twenty*seven students from tbe Tulane School of Social Work were 
placed in the department during the summer, fall and spring semesters. 
This was five more than had been placed during the previous fiscal year. 
Tula? ^sponsible for the supervision of 17 students while tbe de- 

partment was responsible for the supervision of 10, which is approxinr 
the same number of students supervised last year by workers connected 
with the department. 

During the year one of the supervisors who had been a, field work 
instructor left the department and it was necessary for one oC the staff 
nor 5- in her place, 

ilea the program with the Tulane School of Social Work, the de- 
partment con tinned to participate in the educational program of the

The Child Welfare and Community Health Association asked the co- 
operation of the department in making a survey of the chronically 
New Orleans. Information was being compiled in the hope that it 
he presented to the 1946 Legislature when measures for the care o 
chronically ill were to be Introduced. 

Statistics 

On the oasis of the findings of the volunteer committee of five 
i out the new statistics devised by the United Hospital Fund of 
York on a three months experimental period, the staff decided to 
the new form because it lessened the amount of work involved in com! 
ing the statistics as well as because it afforded a better case connt i 
made the workers more aware of their recording or lack of recording. 

Recording 

In November, 1944 a staff committee completed an expe? 
recording, The committee had two assignments: 1) to studv : 
an experimental outline for recording, and 2} to attempt to foi-nui 
statement of standard practices related to recording for the dei- 
The outline for medical social recordfng which had been devised i 
use of the Tulane School of Social Work students was utilized as 
basis for the study. As a result of the study the staff agreed th;u 
outline should be adopted for use in the department and that an at 
should be made to have at least one-third of the caseload in the form 
narrative recording. 

Staff Meetings 

Staff meetings which were held every other week Included dlscm 
of statistics, recording, programs of other organizations which mi*l 
helpful to the department. 

Supervisory Program 

Conferences were held with the supervisory staff weekly At thei* 
meetings workers presented difficult cases for which no solution had b 
found. Current social work literature was discussed and adminK 
problems were brought up. 

Staff Council 

The staff council explored the problem of workers coming in \&u 
workers not attending staff meetings and of failing to belong to in 
sional organizations as well as discussed the basis on which worker* w«* 
selected for raises. *»»wr» w*r

With the continued depletion of technical personnel it has been neces- 
•a*7 to institute measures to reduce the volume of tests performed by the 
tortaton of Diagnostic Laboratories, With the approval of the Administra- 
te authorities of the hospital changes in routine procedure were made 
to effect this decrease. 

t Serology— Kline tests for syphilis are performed on all specimens 
*^ Koimer complement fixation tests are used for confirmation and check, 
'Hiis has effected a 20,4% reduction, 

£ Biochemistry— All special tests are on an appointment or quota 
oasis. "Rush" determinations are accepted only after consultation with a 
Member of the medical staff of the Department of Pathology. This has 
A a 22.1% decrease. 

3. Bacteriology— Practically the entire reduction of 2,026, or 5.1%, has 
pffected by a reduction in requests for unnecessary agglutination 

4, Out^Patient Clinic Laboratory— Reduced 23,4% by the elimination of 
^on-pBsential tests and duplications. 

B, Emergency Laboratory— Reduced 44.5% largely due to elimination of 
felood grouping and matching tests and Klines on donors. The greater 
tart of this is now performed by the Blood Bank, 

6. Blood Typing and Matching — All routine blood typing and matching 
*as transferred to the Blood Bank on September 1, 1944. 

7. Basal Metabolic Laboratory—Reduced slightly by accepting all re- 
Iteita on an appointment basis. 

8. Friedman Laboratory— Reduced slightly by accepting requests on a 
limitation basis. 

There were small increases in Hematology, Parasitology and the Ven- 
diagnostic Laboratory. 

The measures taken were effective In reducing the volume to the 
*4 level. This still remains an extremely heavy work load for the 
todbldual personnel, since there has been considerable reduction in per- 
*°fifie! over the same period.

tempting to secure permission for necropsy. It was necessary on sow* 
occasions to release bodies on which permission for autopsy had bet*

The School of Medical Technology is approved by the American 
Medical Association and by the Registry of Medical Technologists of the 
American Society of Clinical Pathologists, Well qualified students who 
**id a degree from a recognized college or university are accepted for 
°*e year of training. At ihe end of this period they are eligible for ex- 
ftfetaatfon and registration by the Registry. 

During the period of training students are of invaluable assistance to 
to* Department. At the completion of training two of our students were 
employed to fill vacancies in the Department, one married and the other 
Preferred employment elsewhere. 

The Post Graduate course in Parasitology continues to attract Medical 
ologfsts from distant points. Three are accepted each month for 
ttte course. In return for the training and experience they receive they

All unclaimed adult bodies are turned over to the Louisiana State 
Anatomical Board since it began to function following its creation by legis- 
ktfve act in May, 1944. 

EQUIPMENT 

An air-conditioning unit was installed in the Morgue Amphitheatre in 
•a effort to relieve the intolerable heat In this sub-basement room. TJn- 
Lately this unit has never operated satisfactorily. Efforts are being 
fcade to have it serviced and placed In satisfactory operating condition. 

Two raw modern stainless steel autopsy tables T^ere purchased and 

fciUUed in* * large room in the morgue unit. The installation of these 

i44j t .lee has relieved congestion when several autopsies arise 

,oiuly, and have eliminated delays in releasing bodies to the 

tftdertakers- 

Fluorescent lighting and an exhaust fan Were installed in the new 
»«topsy room. This has made working conditions more comfortable and 
feat increased the efficiency of the unit. 

PERSONNEL 
The shortage of medical personnel continues to be felt by the Itepart- 
■Jtot Under the hospital quota one Resident was assigned to the Depart- 
ed Pathology. He began hia residency on October 1, 1944 and under 
9-0 program will complete his service on March 31, 1946. 
In March the quota of Restdents in Pathology was raised to two A 
■•eottd Resident has been appointed and will begin his residency on July 



*46 CHARITY HOSPITAL— 1944-1945 



On July 1, 1944 the technical staff numbered 12 with 6 labo 
helpers. At this time there are 9 Medical Technologists and 3 Labo 
Helpers, It is expected that students of Medical Technology who . 
plete their training shortly will be employed to fill some of these ** 
cancies. 

The very efficient Medical Secretarial Staff has rendered Inva 
service to the Department, In addition to the very heavy volir 
records prepared they have assisted the Medical Stair in tho pi 
of scientific papers, compilation of statistical data from thf 
records, and the preparation of numerous statistical and otlit- 
reports. 

The most difficult positions in the Department to fill have be* 1 
Morgue Attendants (autopsy assistants). Of the five positions onl 
has been filled continuously by a man who has been in the employ 
Hospltal 16 years. Fifteen individuals have accepted employment to 
other four vacancies. Of these t one man remained eight month?, 
others averaged from one day to one month. It is doubtful that this sit* 
tion will Improve until some time after the end of the war when th 
military leave return or there is a change in the employment sittut 

OTHER ACTIVITIES OF THE DEPARTMENT 

The Director of the Department attended the Southern Medical S 
convention held in St. Louis, Missouri in November. 

With Doctors Schenken and Burns of the Visiting Staff fron 
School of Medicine, an exhibit on the Pathology of Amebiasis, • 
mosfs, Malaria and Mycetoma Pedis was presented which was a™ 
Honorable Mention by the Scientific Exhibits Committee.

Director, Charity Hospital 

New Orleans, Louisiana 

Dear Doetor Daly: 

I submit to you the following report of the activities of the Anesthesia 
Department from July 1, 1944 to June 30, 1945. 

The activities of the Anesthesia Department have differed little from 
those of previous years. The shortage of trained personnel has continued 
to be acute- Likewise, the shortage of technicians in the oxygen therapy 
has continued to be a problem. 

Ten papers from the department were accepted for publication in 
various scientific medical journals. Members of the staff were invited *to 
present papers at fourteen hospital staff meetings and medical conventions 
in and out of the city. 

The following statistical data summarizes the professional activity of 
the department:

REPORT OF BLOOD PLASMA BANK 
July 1, 1944 to June 30, 1945 

November 19, 1945 
O. P. Daly, M.D. 

Director, Charity Hospital 
New Orleans, Louisiana 

Dear Dr. Daly; 

I submit to you the following report of the actlviUea of the I 
Plasma Bank from July 1 P 1944 to June 30, 1945. 

The consolidation and centralisation of the various blood banks 
tofore conducted by individual doctors and services into one singh 
under my directorship was accomplished October 1, 1944. Delays in :■ 
ing apparatus and equipment caused by the war were disconcerting 
retarded the organization almost eight months The blood bank, as 
now arranged, consists of two units — a laboratory, which is located oi 
east wing of the 12th floor, and a donor's station, which is on the 
wing of the first fioor. The location of the donor's station oo the 
floor is a very desirable feature as it is readily accessible to donors, wbe 
as a rule, are not familiar with the hospital. The location of the labor 
likewise* is a desirable feature because of its proximity to the operating 
rooms, inasmuch as most of the blood is used for surgery, The la 
is staffed with three technicians, two laboratory helpers, and a i 
laboratory is in charge of Mr. Joseph Stiles, who has done excel I 
in the organization of the bank. Typing, matching, serological examina 
preparation, culturing of plasma, preparation of media, and other labor* 
tory procedures incident to handling of whole blood and plasma ar 
out in this division. The laboratory also is equipped with bottle wn 
equipment, a triple still for preparation of pyrogen free wat- 
and other necessary items for preparation of equipment for coll? 
blood and storage of plasma- All blood is stored In the refrigerate 
the 12th floor, and is distributed from this point. Unused blood is re' 
to the laboratory for, disposal and storage. 

The donors' station Is staffed with four technicians, These tectin: 
who are graduate nurses, draw the blood and care for the donors, 
are assisted by voluntary aides from the American Red Cross. It 
have been impossible to operate the bank without the aid of the* 
tary workers. The resident physician anesthetists are available to 
upon physical and other qualifications of the donors. Provisions are 
for the segregation of colored and white donors. All blood is Co, 
the donor's station during the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. and stored 
laboratory after being typed and examined serologically. Facilitk 
available for the bleeding of twenty donors at one time should the 
arise. 

Donors are solicited by the members of the house staff from re! 
and frienda of the patients. Each service maintains an account In the baa* 
on a debit-credit system. Blood is available twenty-four hours a da 
emergencies and can be secured for such emergencies in the leng: 
time required for matching. 

Certain Innovations and improvements have been instituted drain 
year. The open system heretofore employed has been discarded. The • 
system is used exclusively in collection and storage of blood and pi. 
The transfusion equipment is similar to and can be Interchanged 



_ REPORT OF BLOOD PLASMA BANK 153 

osed for other intravenous fluids throughout the hospital- Donors are now 
accepted according: to the standards laid down by the American Red Cross 
w4 rejected if not physically fit. A system of reporting and investigation 
of reactions has been instituted. Rh studies, cultures, tests of pyrogen, and 
other precautions to insure the safety of transfusions have gradually been 
introduced. 

In June 1945 the mobile unit donated by the American Legion Auxiliary 
was placed In operation for collecting blood throughout the state for pro- 
cessing into (plasma. The unit visited various communities in the vicinity 
of New Orleans. 

The following statistical data summarizes the professional activity of 
the department:

REPORT POLIOMYELITIS CENTER 155 

REPORT POLIOMYELITIS CENTER 
July 1, 1944 to June 30, 1945 



Prior to the year of 1943 an average of 10$ cases of Poliomyelitis oc- 
curred annually (over a 10 year period) in the State of Louisiana for which 
there were no facilities available for treatment In the earlier stages of 
the disease, in order to meet this need a Poliomyelitis Center was estab- 
lished and operated jointly by the Section of Crippled Children Services, 
Louisiana State Board of Health and Charity Hospital, in cooperation with 
Tutene University Medical School and Louisiana State University Medical 
Center, and being financially assisted by various parish chapters of the 
National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis throughout the State. 

This Center was located In New Orleans because orthopedic surgeons, 
pediatricians, and other medical specialists were willing and eager to offer 
their services, and Charity Hospital readily provided facilities. As a war* 
time measure it was felt that this Center could be utilized to serve the 
State as a whole, since other cities In the State could not supply the 
necessary medical personnel. 

Many obstacles have been encountered in maintaining this Center. 
With the shortage of trained personnel it was often necessary that doctors, 
curses and attendants work long hours in order to give a high degree 
of service. The problem of transporting children from remote sections to 
this Center was a tremendous task. Parents often found it impossible to 
visit their children at regular intervals. Their doubts and fears were 
natural ones. The personnel at this Center understood and tried to alleviate 
them. When it was possible for them to visit their children, they were 
impressed by the happiness and well-being of all the patients as well as 
their own child. 

It was recognized that medical care, however good it might he, would 
Rot benefit the child to its fullest extent unless the emotional needs were 

gnized and fostered. For this reason parties, motion pictures, shows 
and muskal programs were often given In the wards. The delight of the 
youngsters was a source of Inspiration to all. 

Now that the Poliomyelitis Center has met the emergency in caring for 
32a C ases of acute and suspected Infantile Paralysis patients coming from 

tfcally every parish in the State of Louisiana since its organization in 
many requests have been made in other areas In the State for 

•rs to be established and operated In like manner. Plans have been 
"uggested and facilities are available in the Shrevcporl and Monroe Areas. 
Il is contemplated that such centers will be opened in the near future. 

Poliomyelitis localized somewhat during 1945 In the northern area of the 

rrefore it Is logical to have poliomyelitis centers in these areas. 

tally since orthopedic surgeons, pediatricians, and other medical spe- 

ts have returned from the war and are now locating in the northern 

area of the state. 

From July 1, 1944 to June 30, 1945 there were 103 cases admitted and 

■ d In the Center. Fifteen per cent (15%) of this number were trane- 

harged as not being poliomyelitis. Eighty-five percent (85%) 

] poliomyelitis eases reported to the Epidemiology Department, Loui- 

tte Department of Health, have been admitted and treated at the 

Poliomyelitis Center. 



156 CHARITY HOSPITAL^l&44-1945

Gentlemen: 

From July 1, 1944 to June 30, 1945, the Lung Station continued to 
collect data on pulmonary function in normal children in order to establish 
average normal values for this age group. In addition the Station carried 
out studies of pulmonary function on 95 patients. As will be seen from 
the table below, the majority of these determinations have been done on 
Patients being considered for thoracic surgery. In more than half of the 
Patients fcefng evaluated for projected surgery, catheterization of the 
bronchi was performed in order to establish the function of each lung. 
Each spirographic determination Is supplemented by time-consuming chemi- 
cal analyses of multiple samples of expired air. Tabulation of the patients 
studied in the Lung Station during the year is as follows:

We found that the best results were obtained by high and freqiw* 1

Crafts 

Because the child must be provided with a variety of experiences in 
the manipulation of tools and materials, a part of each school day is de- 
moted to crafts. Children learn to do simple weaving on frames and looms, 
crocheting, knitting and soap carving, The making of place cards, favors, 
and party novelties Is correlated with the work of this period. 
Parties and Recreational Activities 

Birthdays of the child-patient, special holidays, and anniversaries are 
always occasions for a party. The main object for these celebrations is to 
give the youngsters a good time and to send them back to their wards 
refreshed and happy. Listed below are some of the recreational activities 
of the year.

In general, it can be said that the Hospital Classes furnish the spe- 
cialised curriculum necessary for an institution of this kind. The activities 
of the classes have two broad general objectives: First, the usual school 
purpose of (providing educational facilities; secondly, but no less import- 
ant, a program giving the child information, skills, and attitudes important 
for a satisfactory personality adjustment.
