od n number of hospitals in va
rious citios iu tho United States
for tho purpose of picking up any
now ideas which might be utilized
in the homo institution. Tho re
sult of his observations has been
embodied in n writton report of
some longth to tho Board of
Trustees, which has had it under
consideration for somo time. Tho
report contains much of general
interest and is printed below:
F. A. Soiiaefer, Esq.,
Secretary Queen's Hospital.
Deak Silt: My recent visit to
California and tho East has given
mo somo experience iu hospital
work, and I think it is my duty to
lny boforo you a fow suggestions.
m';c!i, if found practicable, will
cortainly improve nud facilitato
tho service at tho Queou's Hospi
tal. I havo visited tho following hos
pitals iu San Fruncibco: Tho
Gorman, Trench, Luuo, St. Luke's,
Wuldeck, Marino, Receiving and
tho Children's; in Oakland tho
Fabiola and Taylor; in Alamedn,
the Alameda County Infirmary; in
Omaha, tho Presbyterian nnd tho
Croighton Momorial,nud in Balti
more tho Johns Hopkins and tho
City Hospital or 15 hospitals in
Tho hospitals which in my opin
ion can bo compared to tho
Queen's Hospital, as far as tho
woik in a hospital is concerned,
nro tho German, French and Fabi
ola in California, tho Presbyterian
and Creightou in Omaha nud tho
JohiiB Hopkins and City Hospital
iu Baltimore; the otheiB mention
ed aro either freo to all comers or
I find that charges aro about as
follows: For gonoral ward 810 a
wook or S2 a day nnd for private
roomB S20 a wook and upwards,
and patients have- to pay for ouo
full week, whether tlioy remain
ouo or sovgu. days. In tho Ger
man and Fronuh hospitals, a re
duction ismado to members of tho
rospectivo societies nnd thoy aro
charged at tho rato of 88 a week
in tho general wards and S2 a day
in privato rooms. A ohargo of
from S25 to S7G is made for all
operations in theso hospitals, and
dressings in surgical caBes are
charged oxtra jn somo hospitals,
ae well as medicines and oxtra
Tho staff usually consists of vis
iting physicians, resident physi
cian, druggist, superintendent and
housekeeper, and somo omploy a
bookkeopor besides. Whore a
training school is connected with
the hospital, a superintendent of
nurses is employed, in othors a
About two thirds of the beds
woro occupied on my visits, ex-
copt in the last threo hospitals,
which wero taxed lo their full
Vory much nttontion is paid to
tho operating rooms; thoy are all
constructed in such a manner that
ceiling, walls and floor can be
Hushed with a hose and iu almost
all hospitals nro located on tho
upper floor with a skylight abovo
the operating table. As wo only
have ono room, in which surgical
dressings of all kinds liavo to bo
done, and as several important
operations have of late years beon
performod hero, it nppoars to bo
very necessnry that tho Queon's
Hospital should havo a iirat-olass
operating room as soon as possi
ble. A great deal of prido is taken in
the steam laundries, in which
ovory piece of clothing of pationts,
as well as shoots, pillowcases,
( jjfli.. .alAaAjtu ,.t l.lA.i'rtj;
towels, etc,, is disinfected boforo
it goes to tho laundry proper.
With ft dynamo largo enotiub to
BUpply tho hospital with electric
light, a Himill steam engine could
drive the machinery necessary for
a good laundry.
1 think that a charge of 825 or
$50 should be mndn in all cases
ulinro a patient comes to tho hos
pital for operations, anil if ho or
wlie is attended by tho hospital
physicians' they should bo allowod
to make a chargo for their aervioes
at Buch operations. Heretofore
privato room patients have paid
only 82.50 a day and have not
only had tho nttontion of tho hos
pital physicians. diessingH and
uso of instruments fieo of charge,
but often also the ontiro timo of
ono of our nurses for a week or
Our elevator could be made
much inoro useful than it is at
present; electricity or perhaps
wator from our big tank could bo
used as motive power and by this
tho climbing of Btairs could bo
dono away with to a creat extent.
Wo aro sadly in need of one or
two moro wards for native men;
this part of tho hospital haB been
so crowded for some time that it
is impossible to keep it aB clean
as hospital wards should be. All
tho iloors need painting, which in
next to impossible to do at pres
I would respectfully recom
1. Thnt a modern opernting
room tie provided.
2. That two wards with 10 or
12 beds oaoh bo added to the main
3. That ono more trained
nnrdo bo added to 'tho present

they remain ono" or seven days iu

and S2 in private roomc to charit

for Chinese nud Japanese.
(5. That a charge of 825 ln made
for nil operations and u further
chargo of 820 a wook in enses
ihoro ono of our nurses has to bo

7. That the hospital physicians
bo allowed to chargo for their timo
ut such operations, whou patients
uro able to pay.
8. That our olevator bo recou
stiucted so that it can be run by
electricity or hydraulic prcssnto.
I understand that tho Board of
Trustees has under consideration
tho building of a cottage for con
sumptivos; will you allow mo to
point out to you a few essentials
in connection thoiewith ?
It would, in my opinion, bo
ueoo&baiy to havo four a aids and
at loast ouo privato room in such
buildiug, as it would require a
ward each for white male and fo
mulo and ouo each for native
inalo and fomalo pationts nud a
privato room for such cases as can
not be placed in a gonernl ward.
Besides this thoro should bo a
closet, bathroom, nurses' room
and linen closot, aud it would re
quire two extra nurses, ouo for
clay and ono for night duty. Tho
rules nnd regulations of tho hos
pital at present provide for visit
ing hours daily from 11 a. m. to
1 p. in.; ns many peoplo can not
come until after 5 p. m., I res
pectfully ask that tho hours bo
changed to "fiom 1 to 7 p. m."
and that the visits of children bo
prohibited, excopt by special per
mibsion. Much nnnoyanco to patients is
caused ovory Sunday and Holy
day, by roligious services hold in
the hospital, and, as wo have a
chapel which can bo usod for such
purposes, I think that chairs or
benches might bo provided for
said chapel and that all Borvicos
should bo held thorn horeaftor.
In visiting tho hospitals men
tioned herein, as well as insano
asylums, almshouses and orphan
ages, I havo boen treated with tho
utmost courtesy and considera
tion, and I am indebted to tho
porsoi.al frioiulshin of ninny phv-
oioiann for vnluablo information.

President Cooper reported that
ho had examined the law relating
to condemnation of live stock nud
was in doubt whether it convoyed
sufficient authority to order the
destruction of tuberculous cattle.
Tho raattor would bo givou fur
Ihor consideration by the com
mitteo. Dr. Wood reported thnt in con
junction with Dr. Day ho had
prepared statistics of the death
.no from consumption iu Hono
lulu for tho past ton years. No
increase was shown but the death
rate was steady, tho victims being
principally HuwaiiaiiB aud Abia
tics. Dr. Wood made an extended
statemont on the offoriH uinde
in othor countries to stamp out
tuberculosis iu cattle. He also
staled that both Dr. Day nnd him
self had arrived at tho conclusion
that it was tho immediate duty
tho Board oE Health to take pi o
per measured to eradicate the
tliseiisu here. If thq law was w
sufiicieut to authorize tho examin
ation and coi'domuntiou of tubor
culous cattlo thon stops should bo
taken ut once to change tho lnw.
Dr. Day reported tho cbbo of
