Description

Excerpt from Ninth Annual Report of the New York State Hospital for the Care of Crippled and Deformed Children: For the Year Ending September 30, 1909 Of those discharged as curec, per cent. Were Of the tuberculous joint class; of those discharged as improved, per cent. Were also afflicted with tuberculous disease of the joints. Many Of those discharged as improved were practically cured. All were much benefited, and, through the ministrations Of your Hospi tal were not only relieved of pain, disease and deformity, but were also placed in the way of becoming self-supporting citizens. The summary removal of a patient by its parents raises a question which demands the attention of the authorities. At present, the surgeon-in-chief and Superintendent has no power to retain a child in the hospital in opposition to the wishes of its parents, who, moved by a natural, but uncalled for sympathy, or influenced by purely selfish motives, can remove a patient when a few weeks or months more of treatment might result in a complete cure.
