Hospital for C'ontncloua Diseases, 2d and
Luzerne, streets. A staff of nbout 30
nurses nro handling 171 acute diphtheria
Immediate modification or ropenl of tho
last appropriations granted by Councils'
Finance Commltee, of which John P. Con
nelly Is chairman, for the maintenance of
tho Municipal Hospital will be asked for
by Director Zleglcr, of the Department of
Health nnd Charities.
Through a proviso Jammed through
Councils by tho Finance Commlttco tho
Municipal Hospital Is permitted to spend
not moro than $0000 a month out of tho
$50,000 npproporlated. Owing to tho spread
of diphtheria within the past fovv weeks
tho expenses of tho ho.pltal have exceed
ed more than $0000 a month.
Physicians at tho hospital said today
tho present staff of nurses was entirely
too small to handle the mnny diphtheria
nnd other contagious diseases. Many
nurfos sold they wero satlsflcd to work
a few hours ovcrtlmo when they know
their services might result In saving tho
life of n baby or a grown person.
Before tho present appropriations wero
granted tho hospital authorities were
compelled to cut down tho staff becauso
they didn't havo sufficient funds.
Dlrector Zleglcr today said that moro
nurses wero required at tho hospital. Ha
has sent a communication to Chairman
Connelly, as well ns to Seloct Council
man Charles Seger, of tho 7th Ward,
setting forth tho oxlstlng conditions,
Connelly agreed to tho employment of
eight additional nurses. Physicians at
tho hospital contend that this number Is
not suillctcnt to handlo tho many
diphtheria and contagious cases which aro
In seeking to havo tho present appro-
prlatlons repealed, Director Zlegler asked
City Solicitor Ityan for an opinion on tho
legality of tho proviso passed by Coun
cils which forbids the hospital to spend
moro than ICOOO a month. City Solicitor
Ityan has lnformod Director Zlegler that
tho proviso was lagal. Ho advised that
tho effect of tho proviso bo called to
tho attention of Councils, and also sug
gested that a repeal bo asked for.
"Thero Is no epidemic In diphtheria,"
said Director Zlegler, "although it Is
true that wo have moro diphtheria cases
at tho Municipal Hospital than a year
ago. We need moro nurses, ana I feel
certain that Councils will give tho mat
ter Its careful consideration."
