Rules Suggested by the. Philadelphia
Board of Healihfor Dealing With the
In order to prevent the spread of diphtheria
and to inform the public of the
best means of checking the spread of the
disease, and provide the people with rules
for treating the distemper, the Philadelphia
Board of Health last week appointed
a special committee to prepare a report on
the subject. The committee Tuesday,
through Dr. Richardson, the chairman,
laid before the board its report:
itecent investigations naving proveu
that the poison of diphtheria is portable,
communicable by infection, and reproducing
itself outside of the human body,"
says the committee, "diphtheria must now
be" ranked as .both a contagious and infectious
disease. The following rules are,
therefore, more imperative than ever before
u W he'ii a child or young perton has a
sore throat, a bad odor to its" breath, and
especially if it has fever, it should immediately
be separated and kept secluded
from all other persons, except necessary
attendants, until it be ascertained or not if
it has diphtheria or some orther communicable
"Every person known to be sick with
diphtheria should be promptly and effectually
isolated from the public. Only those
persons who are actually necessary should
have charge of or visist the patient, and
these persons should be restricted in their
intercourse with other individuals. Children
residing in a house where there ip a
case of diphtheria should not be permitted
to attend school.
" When a case of diphtheria is fully developed
the same precautions in regard to
free ventilation, disposal and disinfection
or discharges, bed or body linen and so
forth, isolation during convalescence (or
management of the corpse should death
unfortunately occur) ought to be enforced
as followS: Have the patient placed in
one of the upper rooms of the house, the
furthest removed from the rest of the
family where is to be had the best ventilation
and isolation. The room should be
instantly cleared of all curtains, carpets,
woolen good and all unnecessary furniture.
Keep the room constantly well ventilated
by means of- open windows and fires if
necessary. Maintain the utmost cleanliness
both with regard to the patient and in
the room. A basin charged with chloride or
corbolate of lime or some other convenient
disinfectant should be kept constantly on
the bed for the patient to spit in. Ohauge
the clothing of the patient as often as
needful, but do not carry it while dry
through the house. A large vessel (a tub)
containing water impregnated with a solution
of carbolic acid in the proportion of
four fluid ounces (Calvert's No. 4; or No. 5)
to the gallon of water should always stand
in the room for the reception of all bed
and body linen immediately on removal
from the person or contact with the patient.
Pocket handkercheifs should not
be used, but small pieces of rag.shoud be
employed instead for wiping the nose, and
each peiece after being once used should
be immediately burned. Two basins, one
containing water impregnated witha solution
of carbolic acid of permanganate of
potassa and the other containing plain
water and a good supply of towels,
always be ready and convenient, so that
the hands of the nurse may be at once
washed after the patient. All glasses, cups,
and other vessels used by or about the patient
should be scrupulously cleansed before
being used by others, The discharges
from the bowels and kidneys are to be received,
on their very issue from the body,
into vessels containing some disinfectant,
as a solution of two pounds of sulphate of
iron in a gallon oi water, or lour fluid
ounces of carbolic acid (Calvert's No. 5)
to a gallon of water, and immediately removed.
No person should be allowed to
enter the room except those who are attending
upon the sick. Boiling is one
of the surest ways of disinfecting all contaminated
clothing. A solution of carbolic
acid should first be added to the
water. Any material which can not be
washed without injury should be exposed
to dry heat of about 34ft degrees
FahrenheitjOr fumigated in a closed chamber,
as directed below. A hot air disinfecting
chamber has been provided on the
hospital grounds, where beds, woolen
poods, &c, may be disinfected under the
direction of officers appointed by the
board. All articles that can be spared
should be destroyed by fire. When persons
have had the diphtheria, whether
they get well or die, the room which they
have occupied should be thoroughly cleaned
and disinfected. The furniture
should be washed with a strong solution
of chloralum (three or four ounces to the
gallon of water), or preferably, with carbolic
acid and soap. Afterward the floor
and woodwork should be washed with
carbolic acid soap or with chloride of lime
and water, and the paper should
by moistening with chloralum or
carbolic acid solution. Then, after closing
the doors, windows and all other openings,
the room should be fumigated by
burning sulphur in an iron dish and kept
closed for several hours. Chlorine gas
may be used instead, and may be generated
by pouring strong sulphuric acid
upon equal parts of common salt and bin-oxide
of manganese, to which some water
has been added. After ihis the room
should be well aired for several days by
throwing open the doors and windows,
and then the ceiling should be whitewashed
and the walls re-papered or whitewashed.
" It is particularly important that persons
whose throats are tender or sore
from any cause should avoid possible exposure
"to the contagion of diphtheria.
Children under ten years of age are in
much greater danger of taking the disease
and alter they do, of dying from it, than
are grown persons. But adults are not
exempt, and mild cases in them may cause
whole series of iatal attacks among children.
"Numerous instances are recorded
where the contagion of diptheria has retained
its virulence for weeks or months
in cesspools, heaps of decaying vegetable
matter, damp walls, etc., and been carried
for long distances in clothing, in sewers,
in waste pipes from stationary wash-stands
and in other conduits. Hence all sewer
connections and other carriers of filth
should be well ventilated and disinfected,
and children particularly should not be
allowed to breathe the air of any water-closet,
cesspool, or sewer into which discharges
from patients sick with diptheria
have entered, nor drink water or milk
which has been exposed to such air.
"Beware of any person who has a sore
throat; do not kiss such a person or take
his or her breath ; do not drink from the
same cup, blow the same whistle, nor put
his pencil or pen into your mouth.
"Do not wear or handle clothing which
has been worn by a person during sickness
or convalescence from diptheria."
These rules met with the approval of
the board, and were ordered to be printed
for public distribution. About 100,000
copies will be circulated in the schools.
Health Officer Addicks submitted a report
showing that since January 759 deaths
from the disease have occurred, and 1,120
cases reported. The cases announced so
far this month number 302 ; the deaths,
Subsequently, on the recommendation
of the Registration Committee, the board
decided that no body of a person who had
died of cholera, relapsing, scarlet, yellow,
typhus or spotted fever, or small-pox or
diptheria shall be removed from the city,
except for interment in the adjacent rural
