YEARLY REPORT 1914PENNSYLVANIA STATE SANATORIUM FOR TUBERCULOSISNO. 2, CRESSON.
WILLIAM G. TURNBULL, M. I)., Medical
the year 1914, one thousand and sixty-seven patients have been treated in the Cresson Sanatorium. Of these, three hundred
and nine were in the institution on January first, and seven hundred and fifty-eight were admitted during the year. Six hundred
and sixteen patients were discharged alive, and eighty-eight were removed by death, leaving three hundred and sixty-three
patients in the institution at the end of December. The average daily census during the year was three hundred and fifty,
and the average length of stay of patients was one hundred and thirty-six days. Of the seven hundred and fifty-eight patients admitted in the course of the year, one
hundred and twenty-nine or seventeen per cent., were incipient; two hundred and ninety-five, or thirty-eight and nine-tenths
per cent., moderately advanced; and three hundred and thirty-four, or forty-four and one-tenth per cent., far advanced.Of the seven hundred and four patients discharged
in the course of the year, one hundred and sixteen were classified as incipient on admission, two hundred and seventy-six
as moderately advanced, and three hundred and twelve as far advanced.Of the one hundred and sixteen incipient cases, twelve, or ten and three-tenths per cent., were discharged
as apparently cured; seventythree, or sixty-two and nine-tenths per cent., as arrested; thirty or twenty-five and nine-tenths
per cent., as improved; and one, or nine tenths of one per cent., as progressive.Of the two hundred and seventy-six moderately advanced cases, four, or one and four tenths per cent., were
discharged as apparently cured; one hundred, or thirty-six and two-tenths per cent., as arrested; one hundred and thirty-eight,
or fifty per cent., as improved: thirty-two, or eleven and six-tenths per cent., as progressive; and two. or seven-tenths
of one per cent., had died.Of the
three hundred and twelve far advanced cases, nineteen, or six and one-tenth per cent., were discharged as arrested; ninety-six,
or thirty and eight-tenths per cent., as improved; one hundred and eleven, or thirty-five and six-tenths per cent., as progressive;
and eighty-six, or twenty-seven and five tenths per cent., had died.
Altogether, then, of the seven hundred and four patients discharged within the year, sixteen, or two and
three-tenths per cent., were dis charged as apparently cured; one hundred and ninety-two, or twenty seven and three-tenths
per cent., as arrested; two hundred and sixtyfour, or thirty-seven and five-tenths per cent., as improved; one hundred and
forty-four, or twenty and four-tenths per cent., as progressive; and eighty-eight, or twelve and five-tenths per cent., had
died.The average age of the incipient
cases discharged alive during the year was eighteen and five-tenths years; of the moderately advanced twenty-nine and one-tenth
years; of the far advanced twenty-seven and two-tenths years; and of patients dying in the institution thirtytwo and three-tenths
years. The average age of all classes was twenty-eight and seven-tenths years.The average patient came from a house with three and three tenths rooms, and belonged to a family of four
and five-tenths members. The average monthly income of this average family was f53.18.Of the incipient cases discharged alive in 1914, one hundred and five gained in weight, nine lost weight,
and two were stationary. The average gain was nine and four-tenths pounds. Of the moderately advanced cases discharged alive,
two hundred and eighteen gained in weight, forty-seven lost weight, and nine were stationary. The average gain was eleven
pounds. Of the far advanced cases discharged alive, one hundred and nineteen gained in weight, ninety-four lost weight, and
thirteen were stationary. The average gain was nine' and four-tenths pounds.
In the early summer of 1914 the Health Colony Club was organized at
Pittsburgh with the object of assisting the State in the work with the patients of the Pittsburgh Dispensary. According to
an arrangement with the Commissioner of Health this club purchased and equipped ten tents (each fourteen feet square with
a double length fly) to be erected on the grounds of the Sanatorium. These tents were used for especially needy cases making
application at the Pittsburgh Dispensary for admission to the Sanatorium and unable to be cared for at home during the period
of waiting for their regular turn of admission. By arrangement with the Commissioner of Health the State furnished all care
for these patients after they were admitted to the tents. When their regular turn for admission to the Sanatorium arrived
they were transferred to State beds and other needy ones were sent by the Pittsburgh Dispensary to take their places in the
tents.A report on these cases is of
peculiar interest because it emphasizes the advantage and in some instances the vital necessity of the immediate admission
of cases after application. Inasmuch as these cases were selected by the Pittsburgh Dispensary as especially needy cases it
is fair to assume that they were in the opinion of the Dispensary physician patients who were not doing well under Dispensary
treatment and who in all probability would have continued doing badly during the necessary time of waiting for their regular
turn of admission to the Sanatorium.
Eighty-six patients have been cared for in these tents and afterwards admitted to the Sanatorium or died in the tents.
The average stay of these patients in the tents before admission to the Sanatorium was sixty-six and two-thirds days. At the
time of regular admission to the Sanatorium sixty-five of these patients were improved, fifteen were unimproved and six had
died as tent patients. The sixty five improved patients had gained six hundred and fifty-five pounds in weight, an average
gain of ten pounds each. In short, out of eighty-six patients who were doing badly at home and most of whom would probably
have continued to do badly for an average time of nine and a half weeks, while waiting for admission to the Sanatorium, sixty-five
were admitted to the Sanatorium at the regular time much improved and with an average gain in weight of ten pounds.A society of friends of the Monessen Dispensary
has also bought and equipped two tents to be used in the same way as the Pittsburgh tents.During the year attention has been paid to improving the social condition
of our patients and furnishing them with harmless recreation or employment. Results are already evident in a better feeling
on the part of the patients toward the institution, greater cheerfulness, and an increased length of stay in the institution.
The children have been organized into a school under the care of capable teachers, who are also patients, and an outdoor school
house has been built for their use. The school work has been carefully graded according to the physical condition of each
child, no child being allowed to work more than two hours a day. All idea of competitive work has been kept out of the school.
All the ordinary branches have been taught to a necessary extent but particular attention has been paid to nature work and
manual training. The study of flowers, trees, birds, butterflies, and insects has been attractive and beneficial.
During the season when such out-door
work is impossible, basketry, rug weaving, cutting and sewing, darning and patching, have been subjects receiving special
attention.Classes in sewing, fancy
work, quilting, rug-weaving, aud knitting have been organized for the women.Wood working has been introduced to a limited extent for the boys and men and it is hoped that with increased
equipment it may be pos sible to develop this occupation still further during the coming year.By their own efforts our patients and employees have raised money for
the purchase of an excellent moving picture machine and a piano. Through the kindness of the Pittsburgh Photoplay Company
we have been furnished four reels of interesting pictures each week and have therefore been able to enjoy a moving picture
entertainment weekly.In addition to
this, several amateur dramatic entertainments have been given by the patients during the year. There is need of a special
building to be used for amusement purposes. At present the only available place is the large dining room for patients, and
the use of this room is inconvenient and causes a great amount of extra work on the part of the housekeeping department.An effort is being made to place the patients of
the institution more and more on a self-governing basis. The conduct and discipline of the patients in all social gatherings
has been successfully entrusted to a committee selected by the patients themselves.In the children's department the self-governing idea has been farther developed and practically all matters
of discipline are now settled by the children themselves under proper guidance in their own organized court.An account of the important changes in our medical staff together with
a full list of the staff and the other employees of the Sanatorium during the past year may be found in that part of the general
report of the Commissioner which is reserved for these matters.The patients of the institution have reason to thank their many friends for the numerous and useful donations
which have been received during the year. Not merely at Christmas time but all through the year we have received many gifts
that have shown not only good will and liberality but also intelligent thought for the real needs of our patients. In several
places societies have been organized for the purpose of helping and we have been asked to report all personal needs of our
patients to these societies.T
he following is a partial list of donors, as it is quite impracticable to include all the small gifts which have come to
us.Contributions for the Year 1914,

Special attention has been
paid (luring the year to the utilization of by-products of the institution. A soap factory has been built where all the soap
used in scrubbing and cleaning the establishment is now made from the waste grease of the kitchen and butcher shop.All the bones from the butcher shop, kitchen, and
dining rooms are now saved and ground. Part of this is used as feed on the poultry farm, the rest is stored and used in mixing
fertilizer for the farm and garden.The
pig farm lias been so developed that it consumes all the garbage from the kitchen and dining rooms. Two tanks of five hundred
ga'ions capacity each have been installed at the pig farm in connection with a steam boiler, and all the garbage is hauled
to these tanks where it is thoroughly mixed and boiled before being fed to the pigs. About a hundred pigs have been raised
during the j'ear
following work has been done in the course of the year:The stone entrance gate and gate house have been completed and an ornamental stone watering trough has been
built on the State Highway opposite our entrance gate.A fence of twisted ribbon wire has been built around our property and a fence run across our land so as to
shut off the area used for the collection of spring water.The conduit for the power wires and telephone line to the pumping station has been finished and put in service.Several other springs have been piped and added
to our spring water supply.A vegetable
cellar of good appearance and capable of holding two thousand bushels has been built about a hundred feet back of the dining
building.A laying house to take care
of a thousand hens has been added to the poultry farm. A brooder house with a capacity of a thousand chicks, and twelve colony
houses, each eight by ten feet in size, have also been built. The results with the poultry farm have been encouraging and
it is hoped that further additions may be made during the coming year.A pig farm has been made in the field near the sewage disposal plant. Extensive runs have l>een laid out
and fenced, and portable houses about six by twelve feet in size, have been placed in these runs. A concrete feeding floor
a hundred and twenty feet long with concrete troughs has been built and a suitable roof built over it. A feed house with boiler
and tanks and a slaughter house adjacent to it have been built.
An out-door school house has been put up for the use of the children.The plaster walls in the hospital, connecting corridor, dining rooms and first floor of the administration
building have been much improved by two coats of buff paint. The floors in the same parts of the buildings have been refilled,
a strip of congoleum laid where there is much walking, and the remainder of the floor finished with shellac.Much improvement has been made in the appearance of our grounds by
grading, sodding, and planting the parts adjacent to the hospital and administration building and the two camps. The flower
beds in the women's camp were much admired by every one visiting us and much enjoyed by our patients. Fifteen hundred
and thirty feet of concrete walk were built in the men's camp and along the connecting corridor. A board walk was built
from the entrance gate to the power and laundry building. Considerable fallen and dead timber was cleared out of our woods
and sawed at a mill installed on our grounds. In all, 167,796 board feet of lumber were sawed here during the year and used
in the construction work. Stone drains have been placed in the hillside adjacent to the State Highway and the numerous springs
making this unfit for cultivation have been drained away. This field has been broken up and will be added to our tillable
land.Two teams of horses were purchased
during the year and will be used in hauling the coal to the institution.

THE TUBERCLE BACILLUS AT THE PENNSYLVANIA STATE SANATORIUM FOR TUBERCULOSIS, NO 3, CRESSON, DURING THE YEAR 1914.The following is a summary of the treatment of
patients of the Sanatorium with Tubercle Bacilli Products during 1914.In all these cases the Dixon preparation of Tubercle Bacilli Extract, or the Tubercle Bacilli Suspension
was used.The opposition on the part
of the patients to the use of Tubercle Bacilli products has disappeared. On the whole the results from the use of these preparations
are encouraging, in many cases the patients themselves being convinced that their improvement dates from the beginning of
the use of the Tubercle Bacilli products.TABLE I.PATIENTS TREATED WITH

TO CASES OF TUBERCULOSIS DISCHARGED FROM THE CRESSON SANATORIUM, COMPILED FROM THE ADMISSION HISTORIES, SANATORIUM RECORDS,
AND UPFOLLOW DATA AS REPORTED BY DISPENSARY NURSES FOR THE YEAR 1914*BY DR. WILLIAM G. TURNBUT.L.Herewith is presented the report of discharged eases traced in 1914.Table I shows the admission, discharge, and upfollow classification with the numbers in each group in relation
to the interval since discharge from the Sanatorium. The table also shows the percentage for each subdivision in relation
to the immediately preceding section of the tabulation.Table II shows the subsequent attendance of these cases at the various Dispensaries, exclusive of the cases
as reported as dead.Table III shows
a comparison between cases treated at the Sanatorium with and without the Biological Products of the Tubercle Bacillus in
each classification, with the numbers and percentage in each group. In this table the cases with insufficient data and tho§e
reported as dead are not included.In
the report are included two hundred and ninety-three cases, but for thirty-one, or ten and six-tenths per cent., the data
wore insufficient for a final classification, giving only the information that these persons were still alive.•A further discussion of some of the upfollow
statistic! for tie twe saaateria May be feuaaId the general report
of the Commissioner.Of the two hundred
and ninety-three persons traced, seventy or twenty-three and nine-tenths per cent., were reported as dead. Of this latter
number, sixty-three, or ninety per cent., were reported ad dead within one year of leaving the Sanatorium, and of them thirtyfive,
or fifty-five and five-tenths per cent, had died within six months. Of the seventy cases that died, fifty-nine, or eighty-four
and threetenths per cent., were classified as Far Advanced upon admission and of this number, forty-four, or seventy-four
and six-tenths per cent., were discharged as Progressive.Body weight:—The
