Report of Data Obtained in Visits to Tuberculosis Patients of Johns Hopkins Hospital Dispensary, from January 12 to June 13, 1901
Description:
In the 1890s, realizing that many tuberculosis victims could not afford to go away for treatment at a sanitarium, and could easily spread the disease to those at home, Osler established a program to study tuberculosis in the community, prevent its spread, and improve home care. He had female medical students, including Elizabeth Blauvelt, visit tuberculosis patients seen at the Johns Hopkins Dispensary. The students gave advice to patients and their families about diet, sanitation, the need for fresh air, etc., and kept records of the conditions found in the homes. This is Mrs. Blauvelt's record of patients seen during six months in 1901.
The clinic numbers have been redacted on this roster because the Privacy Board of the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions judged them to be protected health information.
