PM SEEN IN LACK d RURAL DOCTORS Red Cross Urged to Help In crease Medical Facilities ■j J for Countryside. Imminent danger to tlie health of American people in the rural districts within the next ten years lurks in the threatening and continued loss of doc tors in such communities, according to Dr. Charles I*. Kmerson. dean of the school of medicine of Indiana University. Painting a dire picture of this loss, and what he said was the "most seri ous thing in medical practice today," I->ean Kmerson appealed to the Ameri can lied Cross, in the closing session of its fourth annual convention last night, to step into the breach, and with its nurses, help to turn the tide before it is too late. The way was rapidly opening. Dean Kmerson warned, for a flood of dan gerous "nostrums and quacks." The small hospital, with "lay control.” he branded as “vicious." What the rural communities need, he declared em phatically. is not only education in matters of health, but actual care ol the sick, and he asked the lied Cross to put its nurses into such communi ties, opening away for a public health nurse and for more doctors. Says Stales Can't Help. The States themselves ar. not in a position to help. Mean Kmerson re - ported, saying he had personally cor responded with the secretary of the State hoard of health of every State within the past few months on the question. Not one. except Michigan, according to Dean Kmerson. lias the legal authority to step in and save the situation, and that one has the money only to put doctors anil nurses in the field in one small spot. "Too many calls for too small fees" was pointed to as one of the troubles of the small country doctor of today. "The fees in many instances." said the speaker, "are now one-half what they were in 1860. and then money brought more." He said, however, such prac tice could be made lucrative. Dean Emerson was emphatic in his condemnation of the small hospital which is controlled either by a nurse, efficient though she be, or a board, none of which are doctors. Danger threatens in all such hospitals, be said, reporting several instances of death from infection brought about through carelessness. Outlines Safe Hospital. "Hospitals to be safe,” declared the j speaker, "must be large enough to i allow suitable division of labor, and j they must have at the head a doctor | with standards high enough to be absolutely safe.” Dean Kmerson scored what he call ed "medical attention" as being re sponsible for much of the alleged j illness of today. This, he explained, was different from medical service, defined as "what the patient needs.” Medical 'attention." Dean Emerson told the Red C ross. had been the practice resorted to by some doctors to give just enough attention to cre ate the appetite for more and more attention." This kind of treatment. Dean Emerson criticized as making the patients feel their illnesses are worse than actual, and as making them think they need more attention than they do. I’nyne Sums I p Results, Judge John Barton Payne, chair man of the American Red Cross, I summed up the results of the con vention here and spoke from the sub ject. "Why the American Red Cross?” “We have no religion, no sectar ianism, no nationality, no color, no j creed,” declared Judge Payne,” and; yet this institution lias come into the i world and is now an active, living I force in more than 50 nations of the j world." Reftrring to the fact that the great religious leaders of his- j tory hart a divided allegiance to their I personalities around the world.
