Medical Care in 1880

Dear Readers,

Medical care in the 1880's did not include the sterile practices we are used to today. I found this article about the care that President Garfield received when he was shot. It includes information on doctors who examined the wounds the president received, but they did not wash their hands or use sterile equipment.

It is a very interesting read. Click here to read more.
