'Knowledge is proud that he has learned so much,
BY ALFRED CARPENTER, M.D. (Lond.), C.S.S. (CAMB.), Vice-President of the British Medical Association.
T is proposed to consider this part of our subject under three heads, all of which are connected with a departure from a proper condition of health, and may be common to all schools, and which require immediate attention on the part of those in authority. These departures may be general or particular, may apply to considerable numbers of children at one and the same time, or be personal only to one or more as being caused by one's own or another person's act. The measures to be taken by the teachers have reference to the prevention of disease or accident, as well as to the removal of their incidence when they do arise. They separate themselves into School Hygiene, or measures connected with the subject of infectious disease; School Surgery; and a less important division, which includes simple instruction upon Medicine, and is connected more directly with disturbances of health, especially those which are trivial and do not require medical attendance.
School Hygiene includes a consideration of the measures requisite to prevent the admission of infectious diseases, to prevent their extension when they are unfortunately admitted, and to remove them from the precincts of the school as soon as possible after admission, so as to avoid the necessity for closing the establishment altogether.
Under the head of School Surgery we shall consider the accidents which more properly belong to school life; and also the emergencies which are of frequent occurrence, and which render a knowledge of the principles which ought to be followed absolutely necessary on the part of those in authority, so that no mischief may be done before the surgeon, who may have been summoned, can possibly appear upon the scene; and lastly, we have the simple principles of household medicine, which should be known to all men and women who are heads of establishments, and especially to those who have a number of young people under their care.
Nimia cura medici, which some people are supposed to require, and which uneducated people too often indulge in, does more harm than good. A knowledge
without prudence, a zeal without discretion, and a theory without practice, are all bad; but they are especially so in the arena which belongs to the properly educated medical man. It follows, therefore, that nothing is put forward here which is intended to supersede the necessity for medical advice when it can be obtained, but only to provide for emergencies when no doctor is at hand, and when attention is wanted immediately, or in which it is important that the school authority should know how to act when such emergency does arise, and when action must be immediate.
These rules are based upon those which every properly educated medical practitioner will be sure to follow upon his arrival on the scene, and there will be so much time gained, either in preventing mischief from accident, in arresting the progress of infectious disorder by taking time by the forelock, and preventing altogether the necessity for further medical aid, "Prevention being better than cure" on all hands, and no body of men recognise this more fully than the honest-hearted medical practitioner.
School Hygiene.-The conduct of masters regarding infectious diseases requires more consideration than it gets at present. The difficulties which are daily arising in all parts of the country from a neglect of proper rule is such as justifies early attention to this part of our subject.
No child should be allowed to come to school who is personally suffering from any of the ordinary infectious diseases. They are Measles, Scarlet fever (or scarlatina, as it is often called), Diphtheria, Whooping-cough, Mumps, Small-pox, Chicken-pox (or glass-pox), Scald head (or ringworm), Purulent Ophthalmia, and Scabies (or itch).
If the school be a boarding-school, any child suffering from any of these diseases must be at once removed from the school, and all those who have been in contact with that particular child for the preceding twenty-four hours should be put in quarantine-that is, to be kept separated from the rest of the school. No person should be allowed to return to school after recovery from any of the above diseases until after they have been thoroughly disinfected, and after the lapse of a certain period, which should date from the termination of the fever stage. This disinfection must include a proper bathing of the whole body in some disinfecting fluid, such as a weak solution of Condy, or
