Prevention of Typhoid Fever.
The source of typhoid germs is
the typhoid patient These germs
are carried from the patient to the
outside world in excreta, in the
bedding, and by attendants. If the
excreta, bedding, clothing, towels,
and other clothes are disinfected
before leaving the patient's room,
the chances for spreading typhoid
fever are greatly reduced. To dis
infect the excreta, make the entire
mass of excreta a two per cent so
lution of carbolic acid by adding
strong crude carbolic acid. The
clothing, bedding, and other materi
als should be placed in a two per
cent solution of carbolic acid. All
material to be disinfected in car
bolic acid should remain in the so
lution from two to four hours. Af
ter which they may be handled as
desired. Attendants and visitors
should disinfect their hands bet ore
leaving the patient's room.
