PERSONNEL DEPARTMENT REPORT 

July I, 1953 to June 30, 1954 



AH personnel actions are governed by the rules of Civil Service and 
the increased amount of work brought about by the necessity for sub- 
mitting forms affecting: personnel of the hospital to the State Civil Serv 
Department resulted in an expansion of the department and the employ- 
ment of additional clerical help. The personnel functions of the Nursing 
Service Department were combined with this office and all files, recor 
personnel and effects of that service were transferred from the fifth floor 
to the second floor. This move was accomplished with little difficulty and 
was made possible by furnishing the Personnel Department with the office 
space vacated by the Purchasing Department. 

j Service Ratings, prepared in the departments on all personnel who 
had been employed in the hospital for a period of three months or m<. 
were processed through this office and all appeals were heard and sett 
by a special board. No appeal was referred beyond that board to - 
Department of State Civil Service. 

Representatives of the Department of State Civil Service have con- 
u- u many . J° b audits of positions throughout the hospital and posit i. 
which were improperly classified have been reallocated. Spot-cheeks v 
be made in all areas from time to time to insure our adherence to the 
specifications set up in the class plan. Other officials of that departm, 
have spent several days in the personnel office checking its records and 
eliminating discrepancies. A most favorable report was submitted to I 
State Director of Personnel by these people. 

Respectfully submitted, 

CHARLES C. STURTEVAXT 
Personnel Director

SISTERS' DIVISION REPORT Dl 

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE SISTERS DIVISIONS 
Fiscal Year July 1, 1953 to June 30, 1954 



The over-all-planning coordination and control of the activities of the 
Nursing Department, The Schools of Nursing, both Professional and Prac- 
tical, and the Dietary Department, and the Housekeeping Department, all 

•red to the Sisters Divisions, have functioned smoothly and satisfactory 
during the past fiscal year. 

The Sisters directing these departments will make detailed reports so 
this report will be brief and of a general nature. 

The department of Professional School of Nursing have made the 
necessary changes in their curriculum, so as to meet the requirements of 
the National Accreditation Committee, which was recommended, with the 
view of receiving Full Accreditation, the school received Temporary Ac- 
nation in the year of 1953, we believe by raising our educational 
standards, we hope to achieve greater efficiency, and better care of our 
patients, will also be a valuable asset in the recruitment program, thereby 
enabling us to recruit and select qualified members for our Nursing Staff. 

The Nursing Service Department continues to give efficient service to 
the various departments, despite the fact of the nursing shortage of 
graduate nurses, while the task to supply the demand has been most 
arduous in an effort to give adequate service to our patients, we wish to 
commend ■•rs" . . . the Graduate Nurses" . . . for their generosity 

in taking additional duties to supply for the vacancies in the graduate staff. 

The School of Practical Nursing continues to give efficient service to 
the patients we feel the thorough preparation they receive during their 
training course, makes them aware of the needs of the patients, and we 
hope to retain them, or most of them for Nursing Service in Charity 
Hospital, 

The Dietary Department has completed another successful year. The 
high standards of food service to the patients and personnel has been main- 
tained, the Dietetic Interns training has met the requirements of the 
American Dietetic Association. 

The housekeeping throughout the hospital and the living quarters of 
the personnel has been efficiently carried on through the year. A series 
of educational conferences to the personnel in this department has been 
given, and has proved very beneficial by improving the methods of clean- 
ing, also has been a great help in the morale of the workers. 

In February of this year 1954, it was deemed advisable to re-allocate 
the Anesthesia and Recovery Rooms to the 12th floor center, the close 
proximity to the operating rooms, has increased the efficiency in the care 
<>f the patients, the Surgeons and Anesthesia Staff, are in constant at- 
tendance with these patients, and the new equipment provided is most 
valuable, in preventing shock to the patients, there is no unnecessary mov- 
ing, with such close medical and nursing supervision the patients remain 

iese recovery rooms, until they can be safely transferred to their 
live wards. Another room has been provided to take care of con- 
tagious cases, who have had to be operated upon, where special isolation 
technic can be carried out. 

During the re-construction of these rooms, it was thought advisable 
to provide electrical wiring for the use of the Iron Lung, which has been 
installed and has been used to the great advantage of certain type of 
operative patients, the nursing personnel in this department are specially 
trained, which facilitates the care of the patients.

Administrative Changes and Accomplishment* in the 
Nursing Service Department 

The Nursing Personnel Office, fifth floor, was consolidated with the 
Personnel Department, second floor, in October, 1953. This change re- 
lieved the Nursing Service Office of the responsibility for interviewing, 
selecting, processing, and maintaining records on employees in the Nursing 
Service Department. 

The one-week orientation program for nurses was reduced to a maxi- 
mum of one day in November, 1953. The routine physical examination re- 
quired for nurses upon appointment to the staff is scheduled on the day 
of orientation. 

The nurse aide trainee program was terminated in January, 1954. At 
that time, the Department of State Civil Service had established ft roster 
of certified nurse aides, and trainees in the Nursing Service Department at 
Charity Hospital could not be assured of job opportunities upon comple- 
tion of the nurse aide course. During the first six months of this fiscal 
year, 41 nurse aides were trained and emploved on the Nursing Service 
staff. 

The white and colored male urology patients were moved from eighth 
floor to eleventh floor, the white and colored pediatric tuberculosis patients 
from third floor of the White and Colored Tuberculosis Building to fourth 
floor of the Poliomyelitis Center, and the Recovery Room patients from 
eleventh floor to the new Recovery Room on twelfth floor. The rearrange- 
ment of these services has resulted in more adequate nursing care for the 
patients. 

The Committee on Nursing Procedure Revisions which is composed of 
representatives from the Charity Hospital School of Nursing, the Charity 
Hospital School of Practical Nursing and the Nursing Service Department 
was very active during the year. The Committee reviewed forty recom- 
mendations for nursing procedure revision or initial development of new 
procedures. Twenty-three revisions were completed and one new procedure 
accepted. 

The Health Clinic located in C602 reports a total of 3,676 patient 
visits during the fiscal year. In addition to these clinic visits, protective 
vaccination against typhoid fever was given to 331 patients, and a series 
of immunizations against tetanus was started with the initial administra- 
tion of tetanus toxoid to 352 student nurses.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE SCHOOL OF NURSING 
FOR THE FISCAL YEAR 
June 30, 1953 to June 30, 19S4 



The school of nursing recognizing that its first responsibility is 
education of the students whom it admits has concentrated on this 
sponsibility during the past year. 

CURRICULUM 

In the curriculum the subjects and total number of hours of class 
taught have not been notably changed, but the placement and sequ, 
have been rearranged to provide a block of learning in which experii 
on the ward and related classroom teaching are given concurrently. This 
arrangement has decreased the average hours of class per week as well 
as making the total learning situation more meaningful. 

Besides the change in the class and experience schedule the instruo I 
have assumed the responsibility of guiding and evaluating the work of the 
students on the wards thus relieving the nursing service personnel of <- 
siderable responsibility and at the same time insuring supervision of | 
Students' work. To do this it was necessary to limit the areas in which 
students had practice rather than placing them in ail units throughout 
hospital as was formerly done. 

Over and above the improved education with consequent improved 
patient care desired by the school itself, the change made has been ;. 
forward in meeting the recommendations of the Louisiana State Board 
Nurses Examiners, nameiy: 1) supervised practice, 2) forty hour 
3) reduction of evening and night duty from the current aver ; . 
twenty-three and twenty weeks respectively to the maximum of twi 
and ten weeks permitted. 

INSTRUCTIONAL PERSONNEL 

The teaching personnel with the exception of several meet the edi: 
tionai and experience requirements. The several who do not are i>r. 
attending classes at Louisiana State University. During the year i -,-. 
structors earned the Masters degree, and one is working toward it. Th 
have been thirteen resignations with nine replacements. 

STATE BOARD OF NURSES EXAMINERS ANNUAL REPORT 

Miss Carrie Spurgeon, Educational Supervisor of the State, made the 
official annual visit to the school on May 25 and 26 at which time she 
viewed with the faculty the educational program, and discussed with 
teachers and the supervisory staff of nursing service the current p ( . 
and practices relating to the work experience of students. The report 
dicates satisfaction with the progress being made, and recommendat:. 
for improvement included: 1) additional hand washing facilities in 1): 
£) utilization of the Out- Patient Department and the Poliomyelitis < 
for student experience, 3) elimination of night duty in the psychiatric .• 
communicable disease services, and 4) application for national accredit*-

NATIONAL ACCREDITATION 

It ia the ambition of the school to apply for national accreditation 
during the year 1955 before the term of Temporary Accreditation which 
the school presently enjoys. The need for such recognition becomes more 
evident each year. 

RECRUITMENT 

Efforts are being made to increase the student enrollment. The goal 
for the Fall class is one hundred and fifty students. The chief means of 
recruitment is the school catalog which is mailed to the accredited high 
schools in the Southern states. The school participates with the State 
Nurses Association Recruitment Committee and thus has an opportunity 
to make visits to local schools. Newspaper publicity is obtained whenever 
possible for the school activities.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE DIETARY DEPARTMENT 

July 1, 1953 — June 30, 1954 
ACTIVITIES AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS 

The Dietary Department graduated twelve dietetic interns, one of 
whom accepted a position on the staff. 

Miss Wilma Robinson, Educational Director of the American Dietetic 
Association, inspected the internship in April, and again approved it to 
be continued. The recommendation to give the dietetic intern experience 
in the pay cafeteria at Baptist Hospital was carried out. The dietetic 
intern's service with this new affiliation covers eight successive weeks, four 
each of Pay Cafeteria and Private Tray Service. 

The Dietary Staff works constantly with Tulane and Louisiana State 
Universities Medical Staffs in conducting special dietary studies. Among 
these were a study of a non-residue diet to show the effect on the lj 
of vitamin and mineral deficiency and a body chloride imbalance estimate. 

The following list constitutes the bulk of patients instructed by the 
Nutrition Clinic: 

Diabetic Classes .... 897 patients 

Obstetric Classes .... 12,930

officers for the Local, State and National Dietetic Associations, and I 
Home Economics Club of New Orleans, 

Special Diet cookery was taken out of the Diet Kitchen and is now- 
prepared in the Main Kitchen. 

A complete new cement floor was installed under the steam jacketed 
kettles. All valves and pipes on steam kettles were checked and repaired 
and put in first class working order. 

A vegetable chopper was purchased which has enabled us to prepare 
all vegetables both for cookery and for salads, in the vegetable room 
rather than the kitchen as formerly. 

Our hamburger machine was completely overhauled and put in first 
class working order. 

A dish scraping unit was constructed in the General Dining Room 
(formerly White Employees') to facilitate the service in this dining room. 

Blue plastic dishes were purchased for all dining rooms to repl: 
the white ones formerly used. 

Two large pedestal fans were purchased and installed in the Gradu:. 
Nurses' Dining Room to help relieve the excessive heat. 

With the renovation of the Dibert Building many improvements w 
made which were beneficial to the Dietary Department. A stainless st 
4 burner stove was moved from the Formula Room to the Dibert Building 
where it was badly needed. 

The cafeteria line was redesigned in the Student Nurses' Home. The 
dining room was painted and redecorated and new drapes were hung. 

The 11th floor was opened for Dietary Tray Service. 

Civil Service classifications were completed on Dietary Department 
employees.

PRELIMINARY REPORT ON THE FOLLOW-UP OF 
ALCOHOLICS TREATED IN THE ALCOHOLIC 
REHABILITATION WARD AND CLINIC 
July 1, 1953 to June 30, 1954 

_ Three hundred eighteen alcoholics had been treated in the ward and 
clinic. Each of these patients was sent a questionnaire. Up until June 30, 
1954, answers had been received from 94 patients or 29.6% of the total 
group. Sixty questionnaires or 18.8% were returned because the patient 
no longer lived at the given address and his present address was unknown. 
This leaves 164 patients or 51,6% of the total group who have apparently 
received the questionnaire and have not as yet returned it. 

Of the 94 patients who have answered the questionnaire, 78 or 82.: 
were not drinking, 6 or 7.6% did not answer the question pertaining 
sobriety, and 10 or 10.6% were drinking. Below is a table illustrating 
the sobriety distribution of the 78 patients who said they were i 
drinking.

The Polio Center, located in the Lapeyre Miltenberger Home for 
Convalescents, occupies the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floors. Second floor is being 
used as a combination isolation arid respirator ward. 

During this year a total of one hundred and thirty four patients were 
admitted. Out of this number, one hundred and four were diagnosed and 
(rented for poliomyelitis. There were twelve respirator cases and three 
deaths. Four respirator cases were carried over from last year.

the number of electrocardiograms taken in each month, and to the number 
of arterial oxygen saturation studies, cardiac catheterizations, angiocar. 
grams, and cardiac fluoroscopic examinations. 

Many sound tracings of the heart were made during the current year 
but the breakdown for months is not available although the data w 
placed in the patient's records. 

During the year cardiac clinics were conducted every afternoon. 
Monday through Friday, in order to maintain a closer check on pa: 
with heart disease. There are also a pediatric cardiac clinic which is i- 
ducted every Friday. 

Cardiac conferences were held every Thursday from 4:30 to 5:30 r

DEPARTMENT OF ANESTHESIOLOGY 

AND BLOOD BANK 

July 1, 1953 to June 30, 1954 

During the fiscal year ended June 30, 1954, a number of changes 
were made in the Anesthesia Department and in the Blood Bank. The 
salary for residents was increased. The quota was increased. Dr. Marg:i 
Kerr remained on the staff but was classified as an Anesthesiologist I by 
Civil Service. In addition a position of Assistant to the Director was 
created which was filled by Doctor Helen Wallace, one of our former 
residents. Dr. John Parmley, Director of Anesthesia at Hotel Dieu and Dr. 
Walter Mannheimer, Director of Anesthesia at the Veterans Administra- 
tion Hospital were appointed to assist in the instruction and supervision 
of residents. 

New equipment was purchased to permit the performance of mor. 
surgical procedures requiring hypothermia. A electrically driven cooling 
blanket, a recording rectal thermometer, a COs analyzer oximeter and a 
Bennett positive pressure apparatus were purchased. A dozen oxygen tents 
lor pediatric use were likewise added to the equipment as well as two 
dozen oxygen regulators for administering oxygen by the cathc 
technique. The quota of residents was increased to twelve. During - 
year 22,000 anesthetics of all types were administered to obstetrical and 
surgical patients. 

, I" the Blood Bank the system of processing and manufacturing our 
bottles and tubings were discontinued and the standard vacuum disposable 
equipment was adopted. During the year there were 19,757 transfusions 
administered and 21,000 bottles of blood collected. 

Sincerely yours, 

JOHN ADRIANI, M.D., Director 
Department of Anesthesia 



LUNG STATION 139 



LUNG STATION 
July 1, 1953 to June 30, 1954 

During the fiscal year from July 1, 1953 to June 30, 1954 the 
facilities of the Lung Station were considerably expanded physically. 
The addition of new space allowed rearrangement of diagnostic and thera- 
peutic facilities to achieve a more functional integration with the facilities 
of the Heart Station. New diagnostic equipment was installed and should 
be in operation during the next fiscal year. 

Partial or complete studies of ventilatory function accounted for 
five hundred and twenty-four examinations. The respiratory studies in- 
volving the determination of pulmonary gas exchange were carried out on 
fifty-seven occasions. Bronchospirometry was performed thirty-six times 
during the year. Arterial blood studies were done on twenty-nine oc- 
casions. Miscellaneous pulmonary diagnostic studies accounted for forty- 
three studies. 

The therapeutic facilities for the Lung Station had been overtaxed 
during the previous fiscal year and it was necessary to greatly restrict 
intermittent positive pressure aerosol therapy in the Lung Station. Never- 
theless, one-hundred and fifty-one positive pressure treatments were given. 
Although the Lung Station was unable to devote additional time to inhala- 
tional therapy, residents in the hospital were permitted to sign out the 
therapy equipment for ward use tinder their own supervision. Continuous, 
controlled induction of pneumothorax was carried out on two occasions 
for special therapeutic reasons. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN H. SEABURY, M.D.. Director

I. INTRODUCTION 

This annual report for the fiscal year 1953-54 has been prepared 
from documents and committee meetings available in the office of 
the Medical Director for the Premature Center by Doctor William 
T. Newsom, who assumed the duties of Medical Director for the 
Premature Center on August 16, 1954, Doctor Elaine Allen, the 
former Medical Director for the Premature Center, left in the files 
certain preliminary drafts of material which she felt should be in- 
cluded in this annual report. Such information is included as noted 
in quotation marks. 

II. ADMINISTRATIVE AND COMMITTEE ACTIVITIES 

The Committee on the Premature Infant Center of Charity Hos- 
pital met five times during the fiscal year. During the course of four 



142 CHARITY HOSPITAL — 1953-1954 

of these meetings, all held in 1953, the following material was dis- 
cussed and acted upon as indicated: 

1. Many problems related to nursing personnel and the special 
premature infant nursing course were discussed in detail and occa- 
sionally definitive action was taken, such as an invitation to the 
Director of the School of Nursing of Charity Hospital to be made 
a member of this Committee. 

2. The final report of the Urban Life Research Institute Study 
was brought up for discussion several times and the Committee 
ommended that this report be presented to the Charity Hospital Board 
of Administrators for permission to release the information contained 
in it. 

3. Suggestions were made regarding the initiation of another 
study be done with the aim in mind of analyzing specific duties and 
responsibilities of all levels of nursing personnel. Plans for such a 
study were later prepared but never discussed further {apparently 
because of lack of approval of the funds necessary to employ an 
experienced person capable of conducting such an investigation ) . 

The final meeting of the Committee on the Premature Infant 
Center during this fiscal year was held on June 30, 1954, at which 
time the recommendation was made for the appointment of Doc- 
William T. Newsom as the Medical Director of the Premature Center 
to replace Doctor Elaine Allen, who had resigned on January 30 and 
left the Center in April 1954. 

The Steering Committee of the Premature Infant Center met 
twice during this fiscal year, both times in January 1954. The fi 
meeting considered steps to establish the position of Supervisor for 
the Premature Center and recommendations were made that this 
included in the preparation of the budget for the next fiscal y* 
Revisions of the sections of the special project planned for the tra 
ing program in the Care of Premature Infants that applied to the 
Nursing Educational Director were presented to the Director of | 
LSU Department of Nursing Education. These revisions were «; 
cussed at length and with minor changes were referred to the me 
bers of the Committee on Premature Infant Care. However. 
further official action in regard to adopting these changes has tu- 
rn ade. 

The Medical Director distributed to members of the Commi' 
on Premature Infant Care just prior to her leaving a brief sumni.. 
of major problems for definitve consideration and action by the 
Premature Committee, The major problem described was that rein- 
to person nei shortage, inadequate space and facilities to meet peak 
population loads and the resulting curtailment of many important 
and necessary service functions. Concern was also expressed over I 
inadequacy of supervision of student nurses assigned to the 1 
Definitive policies related to the transportation of premature mfaj 
to this Center from other hospitals have not allowed for utiliznt- 
of the Premature Follow-up Clinic in the fields of service and 
teaching. A suggested Physician's Discharge Summary Sheet should 
be considered to become part of the premature's permanent hospital 
record. The last specific recommendation made by Doctor Allen : 
consideration as "outstanding business" is as follows : "In spite of 
several attempts and abortive discussions, the Committee has not a< 
quately discussed and evaluated the Urban Life Report in terms 
significance for the practice on our own Unit. Instead, this type 
evaluation was deferred until another study, this one regarding he 



PREMATURE INFANT CARE CENTER 143 



nurse functions, could be made. Since funds for this, second study 
have not been approved, it would seem desirable at this time to give 
serious consideration, not just lip-service, to the value of the Urban 
Life Report, and trv to learn something from it, and make applica- 
tion of this. For instance, the study would seem to indicate that 
more formal recognition be given to the role the aides play to the 
operation of the unit. For example, should they not chart those 
procedures they perform? And should not conditions be created that 
would permit inservice education to proceed?" 

A Newborn Nursery Committee was appointed to consider the 
possibility of relieving the excess patient load in the Premature Cen- 
ter by allowing prematures of 2000 grams or more in birth weight to 
be cared for in the Newborn Nursery on the tenth floor as one of 
the possible solutions to this problem as mentioned in the annual 
report for 1052-53. Although their report and recommendations were 
not officially considered y the Committee on Premature Infant Care, 
it seemed to be generally agreed that facilities and staffing of the 
Newborn Nursery were not suitable to accept this extra burden of 
small infants. The specific findings and suggestions of this Committee 
for improvement of facilities and staffing in the Newborn Nurseries 
were referred to the Medical Director of the Premature Center; 
however, further consideration during this year was not possible. 

III. SERVICE ACTIVITIES 
A. Statistic* 

The statistical data for presentation in this annual report will 
be limited to a complete and accurate tabulation of total admis- 
sions, survivals and survival rate for infants admitted to the Pre- 
mature Unit due to the failure to maintain more detailed data for 
punch card analysis resulting from personnel shortages and other 
difficulties during this period. The first two tables have been 
prepared in a form similar to that used in the last annual report 
so that comparisons can be made. Table I deals with prematura 
infants delivered at Charity Hospital. Table II is concerned with 
premature infants born outside and admitted to this Unit. Table 
III illustrates the comparative survival rates for this and the 
previous fiscal year. Although it is readily apparent that a slightly 
improved survival rate has resulted during this fiscal year, this 
improvement is not statistically significant. 

Of the total of 213 infants having a birth weight of less 
than 1500 grams who were discharged in apparent good health 
from this Center, our present records indicate that a total of ten 
eyes among six children have been permanently blinded by re- 
trolental fibrophalsia. This reflects an incidence of less than three 

.■rit permanent blindness among our surviving infants in this 
weight group. 

In an attempt to more accurately define at least one of the 
factors responsible for some of the personnel problems described 
in the next section, Table IV has heen included to demonstrate 
the progressive increase in the total numbers of newborns and 
prematures cared for in the Premature Center and Newborn 
Nurseries of Charity Hospital. It may be noted that this increase 
has been occurring concomitantly with a variably diminishing 
Staff of registered nurses and a necessary increase in the com- 
plement of auxiliary workers. 



144 CHARITY HOSPITAL — 1953-1954 



B. Personnel 

In view of the improved survival rates during this fiscal 
year, as shown in the statistics, it may be surprising to note that 
many people felt this to be a most difficult year in terms of morale 
and adequacy of staffing. Of particular interest in this regard, 
attention is called to the resignations as reported in the section 
prepared by the Nursing Service Division. The following remarks 
by Doctor Elaine Allen in her initial draft of this annual report 
may be of interest: "The situation at present is less rosy than 
at any time in my experience with this Unit. The immediate 
problem is one of staffing, primarily, but the staffing problems 
have their origins, I believe, in the concept of some that edu- 
cational, nursing service and medical functions should not over- 
lap, but should proceed independently of one another." 

C. Report of Nursing Service Diviiion a* Related to Premature 
Center 

During the fiscal year 1,338 infants were admitted to the 
Premature Infant Center. The daily average population of this 
service was 101 patients. To give nursing care to these patier 
the Nursing Service Department had in its employ one June 30. 
1964, eighteen professional nurses and thirty-eight nurse ai<: 
Additional employees included one Central Service Worker, one 
Custodial Worker, one Typist^Clerk. During this fiscal period, 
the following changes in the professional staff were effected. 

Resignations Employments 

Educational Director 1 

Assistant Supervisor 1 2 

Head Nurses 6 1 

General Duty Nurses 4 G 

Tramferi 

Supervisor (religious) 1 

Assistant Supervisor 1 

Efforts were made to recruit professional nurse personnel 
for the positions available in the division, with very little succ. 
The total number of nurse personnel decreased from twenty to 
eighteen, with most of the vacant positions in the head in: 
group. Our inability to recruit a teaching supervisor for t 
area still hinders the establishment of an adequate inservu-e 
training program for personnel. The nur3e aide training pro- 
gram for employees of the hospital in general does not apply to 
the care of premature infants; however, professional and non- 
professional personnel continue to receive individual orientation 
and teaching in preparatoin for their positions. 

In February 1954 the Director of Nursing Service and se- 
lected personnel in the Premature Infant Center conducted a 
study of head nurse activities. These activities were broken down 
into area, duration and level of actvities in each of three nurs- 
eries, the study not being considered applicable to the fourth 
nursery. A summary of the findings indicated that head nurses 
in the Premature Infant Center spent the largest portion of their 
time on activities which fall within the staff nurse level, with the 
head nurse, nurse aide, and clerical levels following in that order. 
In the duration of activity, direct and indirect care accounted for 
the largest portion of the head nurse's time, as well as for the 



PREMATURE INFANT CARE CENTER 145 



most frequent of all activities. The transfer of the Director of 
Nursing Service shortly after this study, and the absence of a 
supervisor in the division, prevented any further work along this 

In May 1954 job specifications were revised for the f olio-w- 
ine nursing personnel: Supervisor, Assistant Supervisor, Head 
Nurse, Clinical Instructor and Instructor m Nursing Education 
These revised forms were submitted for approval to the Children J 
Bureau through the Louisiana State Department of Health. At 
the close of the fiscal year, the revised forms had not yet been 
returned to the Premature Infant Center by the Children s Bu- 
reau. 

Efforts are contining along the lines of recruitment of nurs- 
ing personnel, inservice training, and general improvement in 
nuTsing care, and it is hoped that the coming fiscal yeaT will show 
improvement in each of these fields. 
D. Report of Social Service Director 
Service to Families 

The social worker has continued to help the families^ with 
their problems as much as possible. She has made a particular 
effort to talk at least once with each mother who delivers at 
Charity Hospital. Many of these mothers need nothing more than 
some factual information about their babies plus some reassurance, 
but there have been others who seemed to require more help. 
For example, there was the fifteen year old mother who failed to 
bring her babv back to the clinic although she had been told when 
she took the baby home that the child had a cataract on one eye. 
Money for transportation was sent to her but she did not think 
that it was enough to allow for incidentals. Since this did not 
seem to be a valid reason for her not coming to the clinic and 
because she was very young, she was referred to the Department 
of Public Welfare for guidance and supervision. She did not need 
financial assistance because her husband worked. After several 
months of working with this mother, the Department of Public 
Welfare was successful in getting her to bring the baby back for 
an eye examination, resulting in successful dissolution of the 
problem. 

Referral of occasional special cases to the local Family 
Service Society has not been found to result in satisfactory 
follow-up of th'ese cases. Further coordinated planning with this 
Agency seems to be necessary prior to successful utilization of 
their potential assistance. 
Teaching 

The social worker has continued to participate in the teach- 
ing program for graduate nurses and Charity Hospital student 
nurses as in previous years. There have been no drastic changes 
in her activities in this area. For a period of time the social 
worker met with groups of LSU medical students to discuss with 
them the kinds of social problems found on the Premature Unit.

E. FACILITIES 

Limited reorganization and remodeling of the tenth tl 
Newborn Nurseries was accomplished in the fail of 1953; how- 
ever, as pointed out above, standards in this nursery may still he 
inadequate to care for prematures of 2000 grams and over. It 
may be suggested that a restudy of this situation seems to be 
indicated. 

No new equipment was purchased during this year. AH 
Isolette incubators in the Premature Nursery were compli- 
overhauled and reconditioned. 

F. PROCEDURES 

No important new procedures were developed during t 
fiscal year. The use of a commercially available detergent in n 
producing devices for incubators was found to be quite damagi 
to the incubators and, in addition, studies completed el-, 
and reported in May 1954 indicated that this method of tro.it n 
is apparently of no value in reducing morbidity or mortality ami 
hence the procedure has been abandoned. 

Copies of the Premature Nursery Medical Policies and Prt- 
dure Book have been exhausted and in view of both changing 
personnel and medical policies this document should be rewritl 
in its entirety. 

G. FORMULA ROOM 

During the course of this Center's cooperation in a nation- 
wide study on retrolental fibroplasia, it became necessary 
standardize on a single evaporated milk formula for all babies 
throughout their stay in the nursery. This was found to be h> 
fu! in expediting formula preparation for this Unit. Only rank 
was an occasional infant given an individual formula differ 
than the one in routine use, which was one part of evaporn; 
milk, two parts of water and six percent added earbonhydrate. 

In April 1954 the Formula Room supervisor resigned and 
was immediately replaced. 



PREMATURE INFANT CARE CENTER 147 

H, PARENT EDUCATION 

Formal parent education to groups of parents of premature 
infants has been abandoned in favor of individual guidance arid 
instruction of the parents of each premature infant by nursing 
service personnel at the time of discharge of the infant. All par- 
ents are so instructed in a session lasting twenty to thirty minutes, 
at which time formula preparation and bathing and other general 
care procedures are discussed and demonstrated in detail. 

IV. INVESTIGATIVE ACTIVITIES 

A. CLINICAL 

Beginning in July 1953 this Center participated in a co- 
operative nationwide project investigating the possibility of a 
relationship between high oxygen concentrations and retrolental 
fibroplasia. This project was sponsored by the Kresge Eye Insti- 
tute of Detroit and the National Institute of Health. Our con- 
tribution to this project was sponsored locally by the Southern 
Eye Bank of New Orleans as a cooperative effort of the Depart- 
ments of Pediatrics and Ophthalmology of both LSU and Tulane 
Schools of Medicine. Throughout this fiscal year over one hundred 
infants with birth weights under 1500 grams were included in 
this study. Follow-up studies of these patients in the outpatient 
department are still in progress and no report of results are as 
yet available. 

A member of the Department of Pediatrics at Tulane School 
of Medicine carried out investigations to determine the survival 
time of radioactivated gamma globulin. It is hoped that results 
of this study will provide basic information as to the dosage and 
time interval for administering gamma globulin to be of value 
in reducing morbidity and mortality from infections in premature 
infants. This study has been completed and results are now being 
analyzed. 

A study concerned with the "Serum Desoxyribonuelease Ac- 
tivity in Premature and Term Infants" by Doctors Obrinsky, 
Kurnisk and Fichter was completed under the auspices of the 
LSU Department of Pediatrics, the Tulane Department of Medi- 
ae and Charily Hospital. This study was read before the annual 
meeting of the Society for Pediatric Research in Buck Hill Falls, 
Pennsylvania. The study contributed concrete evidence of he- 
patic immaturity in premature infants differing from that in 
term infants or adults. 

B. Publication* 

The report of nursing service study in the Premature Infant 
i Criter carried out under the auspices of the Louisiana State 
Department of Health, Charity Hospital of New Orleans and 
Tulane University, by the Urban Life Research Institute of 
Tulane University, was published in a preliminary limited edition 
and further distribution and dissemination of this collected in- 
formation is awaiting administrative decision. 

A paper entitled "Physiologic Hyperbilirubinemia in Pre- 
mature Infants" by Doctors Obrinsky, Allen und Anderson was 
published in the American .Journal of Diseases of Children, March 
1954, based on serial bilirubin determinations dining the course 
of hospital stay in twenty-seven premature and twelve term in- 
fants carried out during the last fiscal year.

V. PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION 

A. Medic.l 

1. Visiting 

Informal discussion and education was provided the many 
frequent physicians who visited the Center. No formal post- 
graduate course in premature care was offered to physicians. 
Our most outstanding visitor during this fiscal year was Doctor 
V. Mary Crosse, who spent considerable time in our 
during November 1953. Through her discussions with both 
medical and nursing staffs related to her experiences with 
premature infants in England, she was quite helpful in im- 
pressing upon our staff the seriousness of administration of 
oxygen to premature infants. 

The Medical Director of the Premature Center contri- 
buted to the programs of the Tuiane Pediatries Departn 
held annually for pediatricians. 

2. Staff 

Approximately twenty new pediatric residents and 
interns were rotated through the Premature and Newborn 
Service and received guidance and instruction from the nurs- 
ing staff, Medical Director and the responsible pediatric serv- 
ice, either LSU, Tuiane or Independent. 

3. Undergraduate 

The Medical Director of the Premature Center continued 
to participate in lectures and demonstrations related^ to : 
mature infants provided the junior and senior medical stu- 
dents at both Tuiane and LSU Schools of Medicine. 

B. Nuning 

1, Undergraduate 

The Director to the Charity Hospital School of Nur. 
reports that during the fiscal year 1953-54 there were 
Charity students and 21 affiliating students who received I 
weeks nursing experience in the care of premature infants.

included in the report from the Medical Social Service Department ana 
referred to as the "Pol low-Up Program." 

The year July 1, 1953 to June 30, 1954 was a very significant year 
for the Cancer Registry in that many changes took place. The Registry 
was converted and expanded into a Tumor Registry meeting the standards 
and requirements as outlined by the Committee on Cancer, American Col- 
lege of Surgeons. This was accomplished through the guidance and direc- 
tion of a Cancer Registry Board, a Medical Consultant and a btatisticai

Accomplishment*: 

The Registry was moved from a small office on the eighth floor to a 
larger space in the Clinic Waiting Room, first floor. The necessary equip- 
ment such as keypunch and card sorter machines were secured. Additional 
personnel were employed; two statistical research assistants and ten medl 
cal students. The latter were employed on a temporary basis. Three visits 
were made by Statistical Consultants from the New York Office for the 
purpose of designing the forms, codes, procedures and training the persori- 

llic Medical Consultant has assisted with medical problems beyond the 
scope of the staff and the Chairman of the Cancer Registry Board with 
administrative and policy problems. The medical records of cases of 
malignant diseases diagnosed since January, 1948 have been abstracted, 
coded and the information punched on cards. Informational follow-up is 
being added to the records. The material has been made available to doc-

MEDICAL SOC IAL SERVICE DEPARTMENT 169 

MEDICAL SOCIAL SERVICE DEPARTMENT 
July 1, 1953 to June 30 t 1954 

The principal function of this department is to help patients with 
personal and family problems related to their illness. Such problems might 
prevent the patient from receiving maximum benefit from medical treat- 
ment and thus interfere with his recovery from illness, as for example, 
the ulcer patient whose anxieties about his family are retarding his 
recovery, or the diabetic patient who cannot afford to pay for insulin and 
a special diet. Other problems for which patients need help are those which 
are caused by the illness as in the case of the incapacitated patient who is 
no longer able to support himself and his family, or the patient whose 
emotional reaction to a crippling or disfiguring injury interferes with his 
physical arid economic rehabilitation. The types of problems encountered 
cover a wide range, varying from simple ones requiring only a minor 
service, to very complicated ones whose solution requires a high degree 
of professional skill. Services are given at the request of doctors, nurses, 
Other hospital personnel, the patient or his family, interested individuals in 
the community, or other social agencies. 

During the year 1953-54 the social workers helped 149,047 patients 
and their families, an increase of 17,554 over the previous year. Perma- 
nent records were kept of 67,706 cases; unrecorded services were given 
to 81,341. The latter were mainly cases in which only a minor service was 
given, and in which it was not believed important to have a permanent 

<i on file. However, also included in this group were some cases in 
which a permanent record would have been valuable, but which the workers 
were not able to write up because of pressure of time. 

One type of service the social workers give consists in helping the 
patient and his family understand his medical condition, its limitations, 
and treatment recommendations, thus enabling him better to follow rec- 
ommendations for treatment, and also to meet the problems of adjustment 

•ing from the illness. Conversely, in many instances, the physician 
iiiul other hospital personnel need to understand the patient as a person: 
his attitudes and reaction, background, family patterns, resources and the 
like. Such an understanding is difficult for the physician to acquire for 
himself in a large public hospital, where large numbers of patients are 

>'d. Interpretation of both types was given in 25,959 cases. Another 
type of service given by the Social Service Department is to act as "Bison 
between the hospital and other social agencies in the community. This 
would involve referring patients to other agencies for help and inter- 
preting to the agency the patient's medical needs, A total of 394G patients 
referred for assistance to other social agencies such as the Denart- 
mcnt of Public Welfare, Vocational Rehabilitation, Family Service Society, 
Associated Catholic Charities, and Children's Bureau, In many instances, 

nts already known to other social agencies present problems when 
they come to the hospital for treatment. The other agency can help with 
these problems when they understand the patient's medical needs, inter- 
pretation of this kind was given in 26,021 cases. 

Other services given included 403 chronically ill patiente referred for 
care in their own homes, in nursing homes, institutions, and 144 cn, ' l!lcn 
referred to child-placing agencies for adoption, foster care, or lnsmu- 
lonalization. 

Some of the patients' needs, such as medication and fI'P' ,m «*,*y 
met through the use of funds which are available throw h »• B « P™ : 
The amount available through these funds is small, and meets only a small 



"0 CHARITY HOSPITAL— 1953-1954 



percentage of the total need. The funds are the Insulin Fund ($500 a 
month provided from hospital funds), the Patients Welfare Fund ($100 
a month also provided from hospital funds), the Weil Convalescent Fund 
($30 a month from interest on a sum which was bequeathed to the hospital 
for use for medical relief for convalescent patients), and the St 
Eastwiek Fund ($400 a month, also from interest from a bequest, which 
is limited to the use of white patients). These funds, not including: 
Insulin Fund, were used as follows: $5146.57 was spent for medicine for 
2002 patients, $1871,01 for appliances for 211 patients, $901.01 for tr;-. 
portation for 368 patients, and $607.45 for maintenance for 131 patients, 
making a total of $8526.04 for 2712 patients. Figures for the Insulin 
Fund are not included in the above, as records for this fund are k< 
the Pharmacy and not in the Social Service Department. The amount 
money spent for patients this year was $120.97 less than last year, a 
107 fewer patients were given this type of assistance. 

There are also funds made available to the department from sou; 
outside of the hospital. These include $10 a month from the Social Just 
Fund of Temple Sinai, glasses from the Lion's Club (no specified number!, 
and $200 a month from the Tuberculosis Association for patient 
tuberculosis who are being treated on an out-patient basis. 

Following the resignation of the Director of the Social Service Depj 
ment on May 3, 1954, an acting Director was appointed through ti 
of the fiscal year. A permanent Director was appointed effective Julv 
1, 1954. 

Another function of this department is to determine eligibility 
patients applying for treatment. Trained social workers are not used in 
this unit, but the interviewers are supervised by one of the Social Ser\ > 
supervisors. During the year a total of 26,553 patients were interview, 
of whom 19,682 were found to be eligible, and 6871 ineligible. Of I 
ineligible patients, 4845 were seen in the accident room, 1453 in the dim 
and 573 in the wards. 

Approximately 12% of the total number of patients applying for care 
were interviewed. Cases are selected for investigation on the basis of 
financial scale suggested by the Medical Society. Patients reporting in- 
comes over this scale are interviewed and the decision regarding eli^r: 
is made on an individual basis, taking into account the cost of the I 
ment needed, past expenses for medical care and the like. The staff of 
this unit consists of nine interviewers, which is not enough to handle 



many investigations as should be done. Even though this unit is not 
expected to do more than screen the more obviously ineligible patients, 
it would operate more efficiently if the staff were enlarged, particularly 
if a full time supervisor could be assigned.

ANNUAL REPORT 

MEDICAL AND PATIENTS' LIBRARY 

July 1, 1953 to June 30, 1954 

There has been a few changes in the staff since the last report. Mrs. 
June Nusaer, I.ihrarian, resigned on October 30, 1953. The position was 
filled bv Mrs. Dawn Wilson on November 1, 1953. Mrs. Dawn Wilson 
resigned on May 31, 1954 and Mrs. Lily E. Twining was assigned to the 

ion. During the year there were twenty-four volunteers who helped 
in the library on the wards. They worked a total of two hundred and 
thirty-seven hours. 

Reading Room Activities 

The library attendance constantly shows an increase. Doctors, both 
visiting and staff men, use the medical journals and medical books for 
quick reference. The professional staff seem to derive a grant deal of 
pleasure from relaxing with a book or just browsing. Many requests and 
suggestions are welcomed and used pertaining to the library. Displays 
are changed often to interest the staff in the different and new books in 

library. Assistance is given to all readers who wish it. 

Ward Activities 

Ward rounds were covered daily by regular schedules of the staff 
and volunteers. Volunteers are trained for their ward round before being 
tent mu. Special attention is given by the volunteer or staff member to 
interest a patient in a book or magazine so his morale can be improved. 
All books are carefully read before being circulated on the wards. Patients 
seem to appreciate the library service. 

Manv gifts of pocket books, magazines and cloth bound books were 
donated to the libra rv. They were given by clubs, churches, business 
houses, and individuals. The professional staff donated many books in 
the past year.
