TRUSTEES' REPORT. 



To His Excellency the Governor, and the Honorable Council of the Com- 

mo7iweaUh. 

The charge of the Asyhim for the Chronic Insane, at 
Worcester, is entrusted to the same Board of Trustees as 
that of the Lunatic Hospital. 

We accordingly present tliis our fifth annual report. 

In 1881 the legislature granted power to the Trustees to 
allow the city of Worcester to take a strip of land on Sum- 
mer Street about fifteen feet wide and twelve hundred feet in 
length, for the purpose of widening that street. This work, 
nearly done by the order of the County Commissioners, is now 
completed. The heavy stone wall on the west line of the 
asylum grounds has been taken down, the ground behind it 
carefully graded, and the wall set back fifteen feet, and re- 
built in a very thorough and substantial manner. A new 
stone stairway is made to lead from the path in front of the 
asylum. The Trustees secured the services of a competent 
inspector to oversee the work, and secure a fiiithful fulfil- 
ment of the contract. We are happy to believe that the 
work has been well done, and that when quite completed the 
asylum grounds will receive no detriment, while the change 
will be a great benefit to the city. 

Of course this work has been done at no cost to the asylum 
beyond the trifling sum we have paid for its inspection. 

These buildings, now occupied as the Asylum for the 
Chronic Insane, were erected fifty years ago. The first 



70 ASYLUM FOR CHEONIC INSANE. [Oct. 

buildings of the sort in the State, they met and answered all 
the demands of that time. 

But the experience of a half-century has added much to 
our knowledge of what is required for health and comfort of 
patients in such an institution. For years, under the expec- 
tation universally entertained that these buildings would not 
be retained after the new hospital was opened, very little was 
done in the way of repairs, and nothing in the way of im- 
provement. 

After the act of the legislature in 1877, establishing a 
" Temporary Asylum for the Chronic Insane," and granting 
the land and buildings of the old hospital for that purpose, 
it was felt that extensive repairs and improvements must be 
made, and they have been going on the last few years, under 
the careful and wise administration of Dr. Quinby. The 
halls have been made more airy and cheerful, and afar better 
system of ventilation secured, and the health and comfort of 
the patients and attendants materially increased. 

The cost of this work has been met from the current re- 
ceipts. The widening of Summer Street, to which reference 
has been made, threw upon the asylum grounds a great mass 
of earth, and Dr. Quinby has employed a portion of the 
patients all summer in wheeling this earth to other parts of 
the asylum grounds, thus furnishing them an occupation 
which was not above their capacity, and at the same time 
improving the general appearance of the grounds. 

This asylum has no private patients and depends entirely 
for its support on the income derived from State, city and 
town patients, at a rate established by law. Yet we are 
pleased to say that notwithstanding the high prices of pro- 
visions this past year, the institution is self-supporting, and 
asks no appropriation from the State. 

We believe that the institution has been manao-ed with a 
wise economy, but without parsimony. From careful in- 
quiries we have made, we are satisfied that good, wholesome 
food, and in sufficient quantities, has been furnished to the 
patients in a neat and palatable form, and that the patients are 
kindly treated and have every comfort their condition allows. 

We call your attention to the financial report of the 
Treasurer, and to the detailed report of the Superintendent. 



1882.] PUBLIC DOCUMENT — No. 23. 71 

Dr. Qiiinby, the Superintendent, possesses in a high de- 
gree the confidence of the Trustees as a judicious and skilful 
manager of the institution, both as regards its finances, and 
his care and treatment of the unfortunate class committed to 
his charge. 

There has been little change in the resident officers for the 
past year. We relieve them to be competent and reliable in 
their respective places, and that they deserve the respect and 
thanks of the public for the faithful manner in which they 
discharge the arduous and often painful duties intrusted to 
them.

SUPEKIlSrTEII^DEIsrT'S REPORT. 



To the Trustees of the Asylum for the Chronic Insane. 

Gentlemen : — ■ At the close of the last official year there 
were remaining in the asylum 367 patients, — 168 mules and 
199 females. 

During the year 49 males and 22 females have been 
admitted, 6 males and 19 females have been discharged, and 
21 males and 11 females have died; leaving at the end of 
the year 381 patients, — 190 males and 191 females. 

Of the number discharged, 2 males have been removed to 
their homes by friends, 2 females and 1 male have been 
removed to poor-houses, 17 females and 2 males have been 
transferred by the Board of Health, Lunacy and Charity, 
and 1 male eloped. 

The general health of the inmates of the asylum has been 
good through the year. The diseases which have proved 
fatal have been chronic in every case, and the direct result 
of brain trouble. 

Ten males and 1 female have died of the exhaustion due 
to chronic mania, 6 males and 3 females of epilepsy, 3 males 
and 5 females of phthisis, 2 males and 1 female of apoplexy, 
and 1 female of old asfe. 

Kecos^nizino; the fact that nothins" tends more to allay 
undue excitement, to ward off the listlessness incident to 
chronic dementia, to increase the bodily health of the patient, 
and to insure quiet in the wards both by day and night, than 
active, healthy work in the open air, it has been the con- 
stant effort of the management to devise methods for the 
employment of as large a number of the inmates of the 
asylum as possible. To this end an extra male attendant has 



76 ASYLUM FOR CHRONIC INSANE. [Oct. 

been employed, during the past year, to whom has been 
assigned the duty of getting out those patients not ah'eady 
employed, finding occupation for them, and interesting them 
therein. In this way from 20 to 25 persons have been added 
to our regular working force. During the spring and sum- 
mer they have been employed, for the most part, in grading 
about the asylum grounds. Every one has done a fair day's 
work, and most of them have shown marked improvement 
both in bodily health and mental condition. The practical 
results of the effort, if not all that could be desired, have 
been in a high degree encouraging and warrant the suppo- 
sition that still more may be accomplished in this direction. 

Repairs have been continued during the year according as 
our means would warrant. In the North Johonnot, the air- 
chamber has been carried from the south to the north side 
of the ward, for the purpose of more easily warming the 
same ; the dining-rooms torn out and entirely reconstructed, 
and ventilating flues introduced wherever practicable. 

Six cupolas — to conform to those already placed upon 
the two wings, and which have proved so satisfactory for the 
purposes of ventilation — have been built during the sum- 
mer. Each tier of wards now has a ventilator eight feet 
square, and it only remains to enlarge the flues in these 
wards to gain, throughout the house, as satisfactory a system 
of ventilation as that already secured in the newly repaired 
wings. 

The boilers, upon which we depend for the heating and 
ventilating of the house, for the power used in our laundry, 
and for the steam by which most of our cooking is done, 
■^ere put in when the present system of heating was first 
introduced — twenty-five years ago. They are flue boilers, 
four in number, tw^o of which had become so much worn as 
to be nnsafe. These, therefore, have been removed and 
replaced by a tubular boiler, nineteen feet long by five feet 
in diameter, at an expense of fifteen hundred dollars. 

The cost of support has been 13.07 per patient. 

We have again to thank the publishers of " The Evening 
Gazette " for a copy of their paper; " The Hosj)ital News- 
paper Society," of Boston, for books, papers and Christmas 
Cards ; Francis E. Thompson for readings, and Messrs. Ray- 



1882.] PUBLIC DOCUMENT — No. 23. 77 

more, Pollard and Barber for the enjoyable entertainments 
given the patients at various times during the winter. 

No change has tak-en place during the year in our official 
staff, and I am glad to have this opportunity of acknowledg- 
ing my indebtedness to each and all of them for the zeal 
which they have shown in their several departments, and for 
the material aid which they have given me in conducting the 
affairs of the asylum.

TABLES FOR UNIFORM STATISTICS 



MASSACHUSETTS HOSPITALS AND ASYLUMS FOR THE 

INSANE. 

(Approved by the Board of Health, Lunacy and Charity, April 3, 1880.) 



By the act of the legislature establishing an Asylum 
for the Chronic Insane, it was provided, " That the inmates 
thereof shall consist only of such chronic insane as may be 
transferred thereto by the Board of State Charities in the 
manner provided in section four, chapter two hundred and 
forty, of the acts of the year eighteen hundred and sixty- 
three." (Statutes, 1877, chap. 227.) 

All the patients of the asylum, therefore, have been for- 
mer inmates of one or more hospitals in the State ; and 
whenever in these tables they appear as " first admissions," 
they are only to be regarded as first admissions to this 
asylum.
