The result of this wotk has Just been nmile ! known to t In society through the re port submitted by Dr. Thomas. The ptnpi.scd ic medics for Hie conditions I .tvo been received with general up ptoxal and their wide adoption by the dispi ii.-ni managers, ns well us con tiuind activity by the physicians. Is counted upon conlldently lo eradicate the evil. In Hie year litll, Ctii.UUO new patients wete Heated 111 the dispensaries of the ilt. while In 191J these tlgures wen exceeded. Manifestly, It would have l en Impossible to muke n complete, in vestigation of such u number of cases, so It was decided to simplify matters by geitlng statistics on t.ooo applicants, which would pet hups show Hie general tendency. Suli.l'iiiiiiiilttee NHMieil, To this end, a sub-commltlce was appointed by Or. Thomas, consisting of Dr Walter lltooks Ittotllter. Dr. .1. 1 1.1 j id Clatke a..". Dr. C. I-" A. I.oeke This sub-coinmittee got Into eommiiuicatiou with the Chut It Or ganization Society. It was decided to etnplo an expert social worker. In the person of .Miss Anne Moore. I'll. U., to get at the facts. She selected con sei utlve giotips of applicants, of from flfty to 100 eucli, on the books of thir teen rrptcsentutlve dlspcnsurles The dlspcnsurles chosen by Miss Mooie were the New York Hospital Dlspensar. rnlvetslty and Hellevue. St llattholomew's. St Luke's. Host Ornduate. Manhattan l-'.ye and Knr, N'orthwestern. I'resbyterian, N'ortheast ei n, Deinilt. New York Dispensary. Ynndcrbllt and the tiood Samurltan. She found that the principal futilt In these Institutions was the lack of uni formity In the method of keeping l co ords, and in her report to the society she suggested Improvements that would make things easier for the hospital as well ns for the physlijlans Interested. Most of them used card Index systems, the great drawlwck tielng the Illegibil ity of the handwriting of the persons who kept the records. One InterestltiK fact she brought out was that n considerable percentage of the applicants at some of the dispen saries did not reside In New York at nil, but nunc from out of town simply to avail themselves of the free treatment. Of l."7 persons applying within a lim ited period tlfty-seven were from out side Manhattan. The same condition was found In other institutions The Investigation conducted by Miss Moore was made with the purpose of llndlng out the actual home conditions of the applicants. Kuch one of the 1 (ton was sought and Information sc. cured from one source or another re- gnrdlnc the patient's occupation and income, the occupation nnd Income of the other wage earners in the family, the number of persons in the family, tlie tent and the circumstances under which free treatment was asked of the 1 .000 persons selected 2,1 5 were not found because their names and addresses were carelessly transcribed or they had moved. The members of the committee them selves visited eleven of the larger dis pensaries to learn their attitude In the matter and the cooperation of the au thorities of a numler of them was se I'lircd. VVniil I'nlforin IteroriU, The committee found that each ap plicant for treatment was rcrtulred to sign a card giving certain Information a Unit himself, but that lack of uni formity in the arraungemcnt of these applications militated against the ! tiuicy nf the plan Therefore the rec ommendation has been made that mil foi m iccnrds, preferably a card Index system be required in all institutions licensed by the Slate Hoard of Chari ties, that the application blank shall slate the name, address, age, occupa tion civil condition, personal income itud the family Income of the npplicnnt; that each new applicant bo required to till out such a card before being as signed to a clinical department for treatment, emergency cases excepted, and that the law fixing a penalty for false representation lw printed on tho Iwick of each card In several languages. The committee also has made the fol lowing recommendation to tho society, which it regards aa most important: "lour committee feels that the custom of charging for drugs, appliances nnd other Incidentals to treatment and not charging anything for treatment places ton niiriien or Hie charity exclusively on the medical profession In those Institu tions where medical attendants are not paid salaries. "Your committee believes that chari table Institutions should dispense charity to the extent of their financial ability and no mole, and that tlu-v Mhould not make money for the purpose of extend ing their work. Therefoic we recom mend that no charges be made for drugs In the dispensaries. "We believe that dispensaries are main tained for the bandit of the poor only and that suae in siinin Institutions patients aie charged according to their ability to Pin such priictlces should be discontinued in the dispensaries posing as rharltabio institutions and receiving benefactions as such from State or Individual sources." in regard to ihn abuse of the public by dispensaries the committee advises that the widespread custom of treallng patlents without Tegard to tho location of residences In respect of the dispensary be discontinued. The dispensaries should unite In dividing the city Into districts and each Institution could then refuse applicants living outslda Ita own sphere, referring thorn to the Institution of their own localities. Sluco cooperation between the author ities f the dispensaries and the Medical society is necessary to securo nam of theso reforms, tho committee, recom mends that the society givo lis support to the Associated Oul-Hatlent Clinics. I'ormrd lo It email; tliaai-a. This organization comprises thirty one of the leading dispensaries and was formed for tho very purpose of doing away with the abuses mentioned. Dr. S. S. (ioldwuter of Mount Slnal llos lilin I, u member of the county society, is instrumental In buying tho work of tho clinics carried on In the proper channels Dr. Thomas lus sreat hope or the work that may he accomnllslied bv ih concerted iictloii of the county society nun Hie clinics and thinks that with a proper altitude on the part of the public man of the abuses will be done away with In short order.
