Historical Note

 

 

On January 21, 1736, Jean Louis, a sailor who resided in New Orleans, died, leaving a will which provided funds to found a hospital in the city.  It was the beginning of the Charity Hospital of New Orleans, although the first legislation pertaining to Charity was not passed until 1808.  Three years later, the Louisiana Legislature enacted a charter.  The city directory of 1823 provides this description: “The Charity Hospital, situated No. 147 Canal Street, consists of two large buildings, containing one surgical hall, two large fever wards, one dysentery ward, one ward for chronic cases, one for females, one for con­va­les­cents, one bathing room, one apothecary store, and a number of other apartments for the fam­ilies of the residents, officers, etc.  The Hospital has lately undergone a complete repair and reform, and is at this time as clean, wholesome and well conducted as any institution of the kind in the Union.  During the last year, about 1,700 sick persons were admitted, 1,200 of whom were discharged well, and the remainder died, one-half of which, of Yellow Fever.”

 

            To the modern reader, conspicuously absent from this description is any mention of nurses.  Until 1834, nursing care was provided by African-American slaves and by con­vales­cing patients who had recovered enough to attend those who were sicker.  In that year, according to A. E. Fossier, “the Sisters of Charity [of St. Vincent de Paul] inaugurated their long period of devotion to the indigent sick.  These Sisters not only supervised, but did the nursing; their assistants were inadequate and incompetent, and were principally recruited from convalescent patients barely able to perform the lightest duties, and whose only remuneration was their meager board.  This unsatisfactory and inefficient nursing persisted until the inauguration of the Training School for Nurses” (p. 43).

 

            The first such school was established at St. Thomas Hospital, London, in 1860, but not until 1873 were nursing schools founded in the United States--at Bellevue, New Haven, and Massachusetts General hospitals.  Glowing reports from around the country encouraged the Board of Administrators of Charity Hospital in 1881 to consider inaugurating such a school.  Thirteen years later, the Charity Hospital School of Nursing was established, through the cooperative efforts of the hospital’s Board of Administrators and the Daughters of Charity.  Initially, eleven students enrolled in the two-year program, which held its first graduation on December 11, 1895.  During the first year of study, nurses were paid eight dollars; in the second year, twelve dollars.

 

            The present collection contains records, 1894-1900, of the Charity Hospital School of Nursing.
