Organized Staff. Personnel of Physicians, Surgical, Medical, Specialists, Working for St. Vincent's Standardization. In September, 1919, upon the re- turn of Sisters Bathildes and Bernard, from the convention of the Catholic Hospital Association of the United States and Canada; at which conven- tion were several leading Arkansas practitioners, efforts were immediate- ly under way for the placing St. Vin- cent's Infianary, Little Rock, Ark., among the standaxdized hospitals of the country, with the prime object to have this institution obtain its dis- tinction as  Class A Hospital from the American College of Surgeons. Popular Effort. Such desirable classification called for the cooperation of the Sisters, physicians and nurses in its realiza- tion. Our local physicians were soon engrossed in the organization of a necessary staf that would work in close and harmonious lation with the Sisters, to the end that St. Vin- cent's might stand for all that is best in the lines of medical and surgical science. A meeting for organizaTtion was held at the Infirmary resulting in the subjoined personnel. St. Vineent's Staff. Doctor J. I. Scarborough, Chief. Doctor M. D. Ogden, Chief of Surg- ery. Doctor L. P. Gibson (deceased) Chief of Medical Science. Doctor A. M. Zell, Roentgenologist. Doctor R. C. Kory, Medical. Doctor M. E. McCaskill, Medical. Doctor O. K. Judd, Medical. Doctor E. M. Hudson, Specialist. Doctor W. H. Miller, Medical. Doctor W. A. Snodgrass, Surgical. Doctor Robert Caldwell, Specialist. Doctor F. Vinsonhaler, Specialist. Doctor John Dibrell, Medical. Doctor Jas. Dibrell, Medical. Doctor W. R. Bathurst, Specialist. Doctor Anderson Watkins, Special- ist. Doctor W. M. McRae, Medical. Staff Departments. The working scheme of the Staff organization calls for several dis- tinct departments, all functioning as a unit in securing adequate service to the patient. The patient is the ob- ject therefore of ,all these scientific efforts on the part of the doctors, the I Sisters and the nurses. These departments are: L I. Administrative. II. The Patient (History, etc.) III. Diagnostic. IV. Theropentes. V. Records. VI. Follow-up and Post Mortem. VII. Periodic Staff Meetings. VII. Research Work. IX. Educational. How the Units Function. Entering St. Vincent's Infirmary the patient presents wo phases for solution by the Staff, namely: (1) What is the pathological con- dition--diagnosis ? (2) What are the measures for relief--treatment. ? Staff Regulations.. (1) Patient's Entrance, with a kind, intelligent and sympathetic re- ception. "(2) Administration: Business cle- ment to be on an efficient basis. Cor- respondence to be prompt, careful and considerate; all inquiries answer- ed reasonably accurately and intelli- gently; team work in operation room and service. (3) Records: History of each case with a convenient summary; identifi- cation of the patient by name and number; name of physician or surg- eon responsible for the case; personal history revelant to complaint; diag- nosis; laboratory anti physical find- ings; impolant points of operation or treatment; complications; follow-up records; antopsy findings. Laboratory, Its Functions and Values: (1) Determination of causes of death. (2) Examinations of urine, sputum, excretions, secretions and tissues microscopically, bacteriologically, physically and chemically. (3) Determination of types of diseases. (4) Extent of theropentie proced- ure by means of dueise examination of urine, blood feces, sputum, etc. (5) Prevention of disease by vac- cination against small-pox, typhoid, tetamus, diptheria, cholera, etc., etc. Nurse Department. The Staff organization has mlopt- ed the national curriculum for the St. Vincent's School for Nurses, as prescribed by the Joint Committee of the three national nursing organiza- tions. This committee represents the American Nursing Association, the American League of Nursing Edu- cators and the Public Health Nursing Association. The course for graduates acquire- ment calls for'3 years of training, covering the theoretical and practical training in surgical, medical, obstetr- ical nursing and the care of sick children. It is required of students that they have at least one year of high school with graduates preferred, of age between 18 and 35 years of good moral character, vouched for by physicians, clergyman and instructor. Staff Meetings. The organized Staff of St. Vin- cent's Infirmary in committee meet once a month, generally on the first Tuesday. It meets at 5:30 p. m. punctually and dimusses matter pertaining to the hospital from 6 p. m. to 7 p. m., new matters being referred to proper :committees and old matters being re- ported upon by the various commit- tees and disposed of. These staff meetings are attended by the sister superior and her assistants, and the superintendent of the training school for nurses. From 7 p. m. to 8 p. m., the staff, including the internes, dine, the hospital providing the .dinner for which each staff member pays a nominal sqm, in order not to impose an unnecessary expense upon the in- stitution. From 8 p. m. to 10 p. m. the staff has a scientific program to which the sisters and nurses and the medical men in the neighborhood of the hos- pital are invited. The program consists of a scientific paper by one of the staff members, twenty minutes in length, on a sub- ject announced at the previous meet- ing. This is thoroughly discussed by the staff members whose suggestions ! ! Walk .Overs ] LittleRck i 220 Arkansas ]Main ]0000PhoneM. 777700 are noted by the essayist. The latter revises his paper and reads it later at an important meeting of some medical society whose proceedings are published in the medical Journal. It is a by-law to drop from the ,hospital staff any member who fails to be present at the monthly staff meetings at three successive meetings without furnishing a valid excuse. This plan is insisted upon because a medical man who is not willing to give up one evening each month for the purpose of improving the sewiee in his hospital can surely be replaced to the advantage of the institution. These meetings are certain to in- crease co-operation and are produc- tive of greater efficiency. BETTER START NOW. Practice the art of being glad. There are some things it does not pay to postpone, and happiness is one. Do not think that you must do your work and acquire a compe- tency before you begin to enjoy your- self. If you cannot find pleasure in the doing of your work, you will not be happy over its accomplishment. If there is no sweetness in effort and anticipation an(l the conquest of dif- ficulties, there will be none when the goal is reached. Use the faculty of enjoyment, or you will lose it. Find the boney hidden in every blossom. To postpone your happiness is ahnost equivalent to throwing it away. A COUNTRY SCENE IN PULASKI COUNTY MRS.
