Cnlpable Carelessness of Hew York
A Caso of Ma'arla Dlagnosod as
The Tntlent Kept Sixteen Hours In
the Contnglous DNensei Ward
Ill with malaria, hie cae diagnosed as
scarlet fever at the New York Hcsoiial. sent
to the Contagious Diseases Hospital, kept
there over night and given no medical treat
ment at all.
Snch It the brief resume of an Interesting
sliry told to an Ktkmxo Would reporter
this morning by Sir, C. F. Brown, a guest
at the Lafayette Hotel Annex, corner of
Mercer street aud Waverley place.
" I had been nn a visit to L'tka to see my
wife." said Mr. Brown, " when t was taken
sick with malaria. I had bnsins't of Im
portance to attend to here, and althnngh
scarcely able to leave my bed I started for
this city a week ago Monday nlght,arrivlng
here Tnesday morning. I went to my hotel
and then started out to transact my buai-nets.
" At noon, while lnnching at the Astor
Home, I wat taken with chills so severe that
I went into the reading-room and sat down
in the tnnlicht near the window.
"While there a friend came in who aaw
how 111 I wat and advlted me to go home.
"'Idon't want to,' I aaid, 'becansemy
hotel Is Jnat being overhauled and the steam
it not In yt. It will be cold there, and I
am so awfully cold now that 1 dread the
prospect of going back.'
" 'Then I'll tell you what to do. 'said my
friend. "Jump up to the New York Hoa
pltal for the night. You can pay for your
bed there, and get medical treatment too.
It'a no secicd-rate hospital, but a private
corporation, and has the best doctors in
town. Now, take my advice.'
"At night came on, and I waa feeling
worse. I thought I would do so. I hired a
cab and drove to the hospitaL A youth let
me in and showed me to a teat in the office.
" 'Are yon sick?' he asked.
' ' ' Don't you see I am. I retnrned. rather
savagely, because I was shaking with the
agneandmy teeth chattered so I thought
they would never stop.
" 'Oh, all right.' returned the youth.
Yon sit there nntil the doctors come from
"It waa about 0 o'clock then. It was an
hour afterwards when the particular doctor
designed for xno showed up. Ha waa a nice
looking young man. He glanced at me.
Then he spoke to the clerk and sauntered
out again. Five minutes later he retnrned
" 'Are yon the gentleman waiting for ex
amination!' "'Yes.' I chattered. T want to get to
bed. as quick as possible, I'm freezing.
"He smiled as one might at a fractioua
child, and beckoned me to follow him. We
went into a room across the hall, where be
stripped me to the buff, thumped me. looked
at or tongue, felt my pulse aud then in
quired: " 'Ever have scarlet fever!'
" ' Yes, when I was a boy.'
" ' Well, you've got it again. All the
srmptons are plainly marked, but you just
put on yonr clothes, until I get another
doctor to look at yon.'
"He left, and I dressed. Then a porter
came in. 'Follow me.' he commanded.
" I was then taken down to a room in the
cellar, where the windows were all open, and
w.th the chill I had I felt as if I was stepping
into an ice-house. I began to get a little
angry then, and slammed down the win
dows. ' I waited there for at least two hours, or
from 7.30 r. m. until 0.30 r. v., when my
young physician came back with another.
"iheylooked very ser.one. The porter
and an ambulance surgeon followed them.
All four looted at me with sympathetic
" I told them both then that I had no
scarlet fever and didn't want any, bat I did
want a warm bed and something to warm
me np, for all of which I proffered to pay.
"The doctors looked at each other and
sighed. Then the new doctor made me nn.
dress again, and sonnded me and felt my
pulse and looked at mj tongne and finally
said: 'Yes, it's scsrlet fever. '
"Then be told me: 'We will have to send
yon to the Reception Hospital for contagious
diseases, at Sixteenth street and East River,
but we will transfer yon in a coupe instead
of the regu ar hospital ambilance.
" 1 was going through auothrr chill then,
and could not atop cir teeth rroru chatter,
log long enough tu call him all the kinds of
fools I thought be was, but t did man
age to a. k: la it warm over there?'
''Oh. yes, nice anl crwy,' be told me.
and I was feeling so miserable that I did Lot
care what they did with me.
"About 10,30 r.xi. we reached the Recep
tion Hospital. A rtng at the bell was re
sponded In br a young fellow, who showed
me li.io a deserted ward with seven beds in
t. 1 lie window, were open here, too, and
a damp breeze blew li frou. the river,
"ihe room tme led muir. the Leda
were all nnocenric I. whtcii teemed tome
Tery significant; afterwards I askei: 'What
plact-ia t is!'
" Ibe yoon man rerlted, cheerfully.
' Ob, this ia where tbey pqts scarlet fever
and small. pox and such things. '
'" 'May I put down the window t' I said.
'"Ob. res," the yonng fellow answered,
and he saved me the trouble by putting
them down himself. Then he brought net
Pitcher of ice water which gave me another
chill, and I spent the night fighting
mo-quitnes and trying to keep warm, I
"fly that time I didn't krlow whether I
had scarlet fever or cot, I saw no physician
at the reception boaoital until after 10
'clock next rr oimug, wi en a drctor entered
thed-sertsd ward, examined ere again and
then declared x
Yon have no scarlet fever'
" 'Then what am I todot' I asked. ,
