RULES AND REGULATIONS

GOVERNING THE ADMISSION OF PATIENTS TO New YORK STATE

HOSPITAL FOR THE CARE OF CRIPPLED AND DEFORMED CHIL

DREN.

The New York State Hospital for the Care of Crippled and Deformed Children, established by the Legislature of 1900, is now open for the reception and treatment of patients.

The hospital was established “for the care and treatment of any indigent children who may have resided in the State of New York for a period not less than one year, who are crippled or deformed, or are suffering from a disease from which they are likely to become crippled or deformed.”

The following conditions are imposed upon all applicants: “No patient shall be received except upon satisfactory proof made to the Surgeon-in-Chief, by the next of kin, guardian, or a State, town or county officer, under the rules to be established by the Board of Managers, showing that the patient is unable to pay for private treatment. Such proof shall be by affidavit. If there was an attending physician before the patient entered the hospital, it shall be accompanied by the certificate of such physician giving the previous history and condition of the patient."

Patients from four to sixteen years of age will be received for treatment, and all applications will be acted upon in the order of their reception. No patient will be admitted without an examination by and a certificate from the Surgeon-in-Chief, or in his absence, one of his assistants.

No patient whose condition is such that death is likely to occur in the immediate future, or whose condition precludes a reasonable amount of relief as the result of treatment, will be admitted.

As this institution is a hospital, and not an asylum or home, it should be clearly understood by each applicant that the patient, if received, may be returned to the committing institution, parent or guardian at the discretion of the Surgeon-in-Chief.

It would aid the Surgeon-in-Chief very much in deciding upon the eligibility of a proposed candidate for admission, if, in addition to a written statement, giving the past history and present condition of the applicant, a photograph showing clearly the nature and location of the deformity should accompany the application.

Application for admission should be made to Dr. Newton M. Shaffer, Surgeon-in-Chief, No. 28 East Thirty-eighth street, New York, who will appoint a time and place for the examination of the patient. Patients living at remote points in the State are referred to the following gentlemen (out of town members of the consulting staff): Dr. A. Vander Veer and Dr. S. B. Ward, of Albany, N. Y.; Dr. Louis A. Weigel, Rochester, N. Y.; Dr. Roswell Park and Dr. Charles G. Stockton, Buffalo, N. Y.; Dr. Richard B. Coutant, Tarrytown, N. Y.; Dr. J. Van Duyn and Henry L. Elsner, Syracuse, N. Y.

Approved by the State Board of Charities and issued by order of the Board of Managers of the Hospital.
