the precautions necessary to prevent the spread of infection.
A card of rules, etc., for consumptives has been given to each
patient.
Any insanitary conditions discovered are remedied, and the
public now realise that every improvement in ventilation, and
cleanliness, tends to diminish the risk of infection.
