At three periods during the year, owing to sudden outbreaks
occurring, it was found impossible to admit all the cases, and the
question of at once enlarging the Hospital came up for your
consideration, and it was resolved to proceed at once with the
erection of a new Ward.
Two deaths occurred. Both were very malignant cases. The
advantage of having a mortuary attached to the Hospital was
found very great as the cases were able to at once be removed
from the Ward.
A new Probationary Ward has been built with a nurse's
room adjoining. The Ward will hold four beds. This new
addition will be found a great boon, as in the past cases have been
found to be suffering from more than one disease when admitted,
and they w ill now be able to be isolated in the new Ward, and be
seen by the Medical Officer before entering the general Wards.
In cases of emergency this building could also be isolated for any
special case.
