Pan-American Notes [excerpt]

THE Exposition Hospital, which has been fully described in the JOURNAL, has had plenty of business since the grounds were opened. Over 1,600 patients have been treated, which indicates a large attendance at the fair. Visitors who may be taken ill are assured of the best of medical service and nursing.

FOUR new nurses were appointed by Supt. Adella Walters for the month of June at the Pan-American Hospital. The appointees are Miss Florence Hamilton and Miss Louise Greenwood of the Buffalo General Hospital; Miss Laura M. Jarvis of the Arnot Ogden Memorial Hospital, Elmira, and Miss Eleanor M. Alexander of the Kingston General Hospital, Toronto. Four others will be appointed for the next month.

AN X-RAY machine has been installed in Medical Director Park’s office.

AMONG the conveniences added to the hospital recently is a Fox-Piper invalid bed. It was contributed by Harry Piper, a former alderman of Toronto. It appears to be admirably adapted for lifting and changing the position of heavy patients and for easing the pain of those suffering from fracture, paralysis or other similar helpless conditions.
