Former patient report on condition, 1908

Contributed by Maine State Archives


Jennie Y. Small of Denmark reported on her temperature, appetite and overall health to Dr. Estes Nichols, medical superintendent of the Maine State Sanatorium in Hebron. She was about 26 years old.

Small, a former patient at the tuberculosis hospital, apparently was continuing her treatment at home and reporting in regularly to the doctor. She noted that she continued to sleep outside at night.

Fresh air, a high calorie diet and rest were the main ingredients of the treatment at the sanatorium.
