ALFRED L. KENNEDY, M D.,
The Pennsylvania Hospital.
This venerable Institution was founded in 1750, and chartered in 1751, the corporators being styled “The Contributors to the Pennsylvania Hospital.'' Dr. Franklin, then a member of the Provincial Assembly, greatly aided in the benevolent scheme. The Hospital derives its support from voluntary contributions; some of the patients pay board, but the amount so received is trifling compared with the expenditures. It is situated on the square between Eighth and Ninth, and Spruce and Pine Streets, the entrance being on Eighth Street.
The Contributors (who become such on the payment of ten pounds, or upwards, to the Institution) meet annually on the first Monday in May, to elect a Board of twelve Managers and a Treasurer. These Managers have charge of the affairs not only of the Hospital in the city, but also of that for the insane in West Philadelphia. They elect all the officers except the Trea
The Medical Staff of the Hospital in town consists of four Attending Physicians, four Attending Surgeons, and three Resident Physicians--two in the surgical wards, and one in the medical. The term for each resident is eighteen months. An apothecary lives in the house, and has charge of the preparation and dispensing of medicines. All of these gentlemen, except the last named, render their services gratuitously. Two of the surgeons are on duty at a time, for a term of six months; the physicians serve singly for periods of three months. Each physician and surgeon pays a daily visit in the forenoon. Clinical lectures are delivered by them in the amphitheatre, from 10 A. M. to 12 M. on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and to a class of females on Tuesdays.
Each physician and surgeon of the Hospital has the privilege of introducing not exceeding eight of his pupils at one time, to observe the practice of the Hospital, and have the use of the Library, subject to the regulations of the attending Managers.
The Library contains between twelve and thirteen thousand volumes, and is accessible to students and physicians on payment of three dollars per annum, or twenty-five dollars for this right for life.
Admission and Discharge of Patients.—Persons accidentally wounded or otherwise injured are received at all hours, subject to such rules on the matter as the Managers may from time to time enact; provided always, that the accident or injury happen in Pennsylvania, and the patient is brought to the Hospital within twenty-four hours after its occurrence.
The number of patients to be admitted on the charity of the institution in this Hospital is now limited to eighty, exclusive of recent accidents as above.
These are distributed as follows :
The men's medical ward is limited to twenty beds for poor patients.
The women's medical ward is limited to twenty-five beds for poor patients.
The men's surgical wards are limited to twenty-five beds for poor patients, exclusive of recent accidents.
The women's surgical ward is limited to ten beds for poor patients, exclusive of recent accidents.
Room must always be reserved in the surgical wards for the reception of cases of accident; and if these increase beyond the capacity of the wards, the number of other poor patients must be reduced in proportion.
The physician and surgeon on duty have the power of admitting poor or charity patients in their respective wards, to the numbers above respectively allotted to each ward, subject to the general rules governing the admission of patients into this Hospital. The admission in all cases must be by printed certificate of name, age, place of nativity, occupation, whether married or single, and of the disease—under the signature of the doctor admitting. Whenever practicable, the doctor admitting must also require security for the clothing of the patient, and for his or her removal when discharged, from some friend or relation of the applicant, or refer the parties to the Steward for that purpose.
No person having any infectious or contagious disease can be admitted into the Hospital.
