Some Scottish District Asylums


Glasgow, Gartloch.—This report is the last which Dr. Oswald will issue. His translation to Gartnavel, on which we congratulate him, will be dealt with in another part of the Journal. Though it is only the fourth report of the asylum, it tells of a proposed increase of 240 beds in the shape of separate villa pavilions for chronic cases. Dr. Oswald has carried out the training of attendants to the full, and has added practical and theoretical instruction in sick cookery and massage by competent teachers from Glasgow. We notice, with regret, that several important tables of statistics are omitted. Those dealing with past history (Nos. 2, 3, and 4) do not appear. The admissions were more than 50 per cent. of the average residence.
