Description

Excerpt from Code of Rules and Regulations for the Government of Those Employed in the Care of the Patients of the Pennsylvania Hospital for the Insane, Near Philadelphia The history of the institution for which this code of rules and regulations has been prepared extends back to the year 1752, when a number of the benevolent citizens of Philadelphia established in that city the Pennsylvania Hospital, which, besides its admirable provision for the indigent sick, is distinguished as being the first establish ment for the care and treatment of the insane, in Ame rica. From the foundation of the institution till the first day of 1841, the insane were received and treated in one Wing of the hospital in the city 3 but its position in the midst of a flourishing metropolis, its contracted buildings, its limited extent of ground, its want of privacy, and, above all, its having no distinct medical organization for the in sane department, rendered it obvious that a different arrangement, with a country location, would have many important advantages.
