SCHOOL INSPECTION IN CITIES.

SCHOOL INSPECTION IN CITIES. The advantages of the Chicago school inspection were set forth in a communication made October 30 to the Board of Education by Dr. A. R. Reynolds, health commissioner. Since the beginning of the year over 75,000 children have been detained by school principals for medical inspection, and of these 4539 were temporarily excluded from school on account of danger of contagion, and in 711 a bacteriologic examination was made to confirm the inspector's diagnosis. The results of this care are a very notable decrease in the mortality from those disorders that are especially fatal to children, such as diphtheria and scarlet fever. The average mortality from diphtheria for the ten years, 1890 till 1899 inclusive, during the month of September has been 85.5, or about 4.5 per cent. of the total deaths. For October the like figures are 127.9 and nearly 7 per cent. Prior to 1890 the figures are http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association

Abstract

The advantages of the Chicago school inspection were set forth in a communication made October 30 to the Board of Education by Dr. A. R. Reynolds, health commissioner. Since the beginning of the year over 75,000 children have been detained by school principals for medical inspection, and of these 4539 were temporarily excluded from school on account of danger of contagion, and in 711 a bacteriologic examination was made to confirm the inspector's diagnosis. The results of this care are a very notable decrease in the mortality from those disorders that are especially fatal to children, such as diphtheria and scarlet fever. The average mortality from diphtheria for the ten years, 1890 till 1899 inclusive, during the month of September has been 85.5, or about 4.5 per cent. of the total deaths.
