WALLINGFORD SANATORIUM SUMMARY OF TWO TEARS BE kULTS. Splendid Work Done by Institution for People Who Could Otherwise Have Had No Relief 148 Patients DIs. charged Since Opening Consump tives Need Not be Sent Far From Home Value of Work In Education al Way. The report of the New Haven County Anti-tuberculosis association, which has just been issued, shows that the work of this association at their sana torium in Wallingford has been even more prosperous than during the previ ous year. This sanatorium is situated on the highest point of Cook hill, whore it gets the purest air in the country, with all the breezes during the sultry months. The methods of sure are those in use at all up-to-date sanatoria, and include sleeping out of doors, plen ty of well-cooked, nutritious food, rest ing, exercising within limits prescribed by the physician in charge. Not only art results being obtained in the sana torium, but the patients, when they go home, do good work among their friends, for they1 carry the knowledge they have obtained of the nature of the disease, how it is communicated and how it may be induced by living in dark and ill-ventilated dwellings. The influences of the work are being felt in offices and factories where there is more attempt to prevent indiscriminate spitting, an also to provide better ven tilation. One hundred and forty-six patients have been discharged from the sanatorium since its opening two years ago, ana tneso constitute just one hundred and forty-six more workers In the endeavor to restore normal methods of living. Not all of these have been sent out "cured." The sanatorium has been conducted on the plan of "the greatest benefit to the greatest num ber," and not to establish a reord, and many cases received there have been taken, although their cure was very questionable, because of the good1 pos sible through their care and training In order to prevent further spread of the disease among their families. The records show fifty-nine per cent, of all cases, favorable and unfavorable, returned to active, useful life, and half as many more greatly Improved. In fact, the results of the treatment under the local climatic conditions, both here and in the well-known distant resorts. One important feature of the work which the report does not show is the very moderate financial circumstances of the majority of the patients re celved. Were there not this institution open to them at its low rate (which is considerably below the cost of mainte nance) many of them would be entirely without means of obtaining the chance of renewed' health and usefulness it of fers. From Its opening on September 20, 1904, up to the present time, one hun dred and forty-eight patients have been discharged from the Wallingford sana torium. The results obtained with these have proven that it is not neces sary . to send people of the state far from home for treatment; but that un der a proper regime results can be ob tained here fully as good as those of any well-knwn climate or health resort, The state of health of these one hun dred and forty-eight discharged pa tients on November 1, 1906, was as fol lows: Apparently cured and arrested (with ability to work), 73 or 49 per cent. Continued improvement, 27 or 18 per cent. lisease progressive, 28 or 19.5 per cent. Died, 19 or 12.8 per cent. Discharged as not tubercular, 1 or .7 per cent. This includes all cases, even several far advanced ones that were admitted (though incurable) for a few weeks In order Ho teach them how to prevent spreading the disease among the mem bers of their family. Though the great majority have come from New Haven county, every county in the state has been represented there by several patients, for the sanatorium is open to all citizens of the state who cannot afford the rates of private in stitutions. The boon it has been to these is shown by a glance at the list of occupation represented among the patients. Bookkeepers, buffers, car penters, factory hands, salesmen, tail ors, waitresses, teachers, nurses, steno- iMore than this, their people have been able to visit them, see the place and the life they lead, and learn from per sonal observation the 'value of a normal healthy mode of living. Aside from Its Immediate results, which compare fa vorable with those of distant resorts, its educational value alone, through its location in easy access to friends and families of the patients, is sufficient to justify the most generous support from the people of the state. The results of local treatment at the sanatorium at Wallingford have fully justified the faith of its founders, and should command the attention of all who have the well-being of the state at hear' Of all the patients whose condition on admission was such as to justify the hope of a favorable result, fifty-nine per cent, have been discharged with the disease arrested and able to take up active life; twenty-three per cent, more have left in a greatly improved condi tion. The first patient admitted to the san atorium, and discharged as an arrested case, has worked at his trade, of orna mental plasterer in New York city for the past eighteen months, with no re turns of any symptoms of the disease. (Many others who without its aid1 would have been to-day (if alive) only hope less invalids, are 'now leading active, useful lives, and spreading among their daily associates knowledge of the pos sibilities ,of a healthy natural mode of living. The institution has not attempted to exclude all cases that would not add to its "record." On the contrary, it has always numbered among its patients several whose physical condition pre clude! the probability of any perma nent physical benefit. These patients have been received (when existing va cancies justified) not only in order that their lives might be lengthened and rendered more comfortable, but chiefly for the purpose of teaching them and their familes how to guard aganst spreading the disease to others. The sanatorium has received patients from every county in the state; its only limitation (beyond that of physical condition) being that no patient is re eived whose circumstances are such .as to enable him to avail himself of pri vate institutions elsewhere. In the past year twenty-three patients) most of them favorable cases, left after a1 very short term because they could not get the neeted seven dollars a week to pay for their treatment. In fact, there have been very few who have been able to take the full term of six months al lowed except through serious sacrifice on the part of those at home. "Over the doors of the, wards in hos pitals for consumptives, twenty-five years ago might well have been writ ten these words: "All hope abandon you who enter here;" while to-day, in the light of our new knowledge, we may justly place at the entrance of the modern sanatorium the more hopeful Inscription, "Cure often, relief usually, comfort always." The results of the two years', exist ence cf the 'Wallingford sanatorium fully justify this statement of the greatest of living workers In the battle that controls tuberculosis, Dr. E. . L. Trudeau. The sanatorium has re ceived, all together, one hundred and eightyfour patients, representing every county in the state. Of those dis charged, fifty-nine p ercent, have re turned to active, useful life, while twenty three per cent, more have been greatly improve!. It has sent away one hudred and forty-six people who took with them the knowledge of how to prevent thespread of this dsease and the incentive to im part this knowledge to others. It has demonstrated to hundreds of interested visitors among the friends and families of the patients, the practicability and tho benefit of a healthy mode of life, and the power of air, sunshine and rest to cure and prevent disease. It has shown that sufferers from tu berculosis need not be sent far from home, but can be cured (here in heir own, state. Its work has been done In the aid of those for whom there was, otherwise, no relief, as they had not the means to afford long journeys or the rates of private Institutions. Its pa tients have mostly come1 from active walks of life, In which the Income they earned was not sufficient to enable them to be prepared for a long term of Idleness. In fact, though the rates to all are but seven dollars a week (five dollars bolow the cost of maintenance), over one-third were enabled to come only through the aid of churches, soci eties or individuals interested In their cases. OOne out of every six patients admitted left after a Tery short stay because of lack of any means of secur ing them the needed funds. The results to date have proven three things; ilst. That there is a "great need of such an institution in our midst. 2d. That the one at Wallingford is accomplishing the results for which it was organized. Bd. That tho work is worthy of the heartest support from the people of the state. OLDEST IN THE STATE. Couple Living in South Merlden, For merly of Naugatuck, Married 65 Years.
