Lunacy Administration in Berlin and in Scotland, with Special Reference to the Care of the Insane in Private Dwellings

  • John Sibbald (a1)
Extract

The Supervision and Management of the Patients in Private Dwellings.

The way in which the boarding-out system is administered at Berlin is the result of experience. Its present form differs in some respects from the arrangements made at the commencement of the experiment. It is unnecessary to describe the gradual evolution of the system, the way in which cumbrous regulations were eliminated, and in which greater efficiency was given to the arrangements; but it is proper to recognize the great capacity as an administrator which has been shown by Dr. Sander, to whom, as director of the asylum, the development of the system has been chiefly due.

This statement by Dr. Bothe must be received with some reservation in view of the specific complaints he makes elsewhere of the unsatisfactory dealing with the insane by the Poor Law Authorities — especially by the Armen-Commissionen.
These two authorities are here designated as the Local Government Board and the Parish Council, because the functions hitherto performed by the Board of Supervision and the Parochial Boards are in consequence of recent legislation being transferred to authorities having these desigations.
There are some exceptions to this statement, such as in the case where a District Board has contracted with the Directors of a Royal Asylum for the care of their insane; but these exceptions do not affect the general principle of the administration, and they need not be taken into consideration here.
