Red Cross Urged to Help In
crease Medical Facilities
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
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. Judge j
