LATTICE OF THE MEDICAL DIRECTOR, v ' Department of m South, Hilton Head, a C., March 17,1865. General Orders,) ♦ No. 5. f L The strictest discipline is required in the adtninis tration of a Military Hospital. It is a paramount duty of a Medical Officer of the Army to maintain the discf phne of the soldier, during his residence in Hospital, at the highest point of efficiency compatible with the na ture and treatment of the disease or injury he is suffer ing from. The General Hospitals in this Department hßve hitherto been remarkable for their excellent dis cipline. The Medical Director regretted to find in his recent inspections the umnilitarv neglect of regula tions in regard to dress and general discipline; the careless ana linsoldierly bearing of many or the con valescents and attendants; and either the entire ab sence of the customary compliments between the offi cers and men, or the slovenly manner in which they were paid and returned. Respect to superiors is not confined to obedience on duty, but must be extended to all occasions. It is always the duty of the inferior to accept or offer first the proper salutation, and of the superior to return such complimentary notice. Here after existing regulations and orders in regard to dis cipline, proper compliments, and dress, mnst be rigid ly enforced, and all infractions of discipline, or dis obedience of orders, mnst be promptly punished. The attention of all Officers on duty in General Hospitals in this Department, is called to paragraphs 253, 254, 265, 256 and 257 Revised Regulations of the Army, 1863, and to General Orders, No. 157, Headquarters, Department of the South, series ISG4. Whenever an Officer enters a Ward,the Wardmaster mnst command attention, on which the patients, who are able to do so, will rise and stand in the position of attention until the Officer has passed out. Whenever a patient, attendant, or guard meets an Officer, within the precincts of the Hospital, he will offer the customary salutation ; if seated, and withoHt particular occupation, he will rise on his approach, or, If standing, he wiU turn-towards the Officer for the same purpose. The Officer will acknowledge the salute in a respectful manner. At Inspection each man’s articles of clothing, which may be in the wards, will be neatly folded and laid on the foot of the bed. Boots and shoes, well brushed, will be placed on the floor at the foot of the bed. Nothing must be hidden under the bedstead. Every patient in Hospital, who is able, will wash his face und hands at least every morning, and his feet twice a week, and will take a general bath once a week. Those who are unable to leave their beds, should have their hands and faces washed by the nurses, and the surface of the body sponged often enough to maintain cleanliness. 1 he attendants are especially enjoined to be cleanly in their persons, neat in their dress, and soldierly in their bearing. No attendant or patient in U. S. A. General Hospital in this Department must leave the limits of the Hospi tal unless he is provided with a pass signed by the Medical Officer of the Day, without having on his proper uniform, his coat buttoned up, clothing and shoes well brushed, and the number of his regiment and the letter of his company on his cap. Enlisted men and civilian nurses must not be permitted to wear hospital dressing gowns or slippers outside the wards. 11. The Hospital Steward charged with the adminis trative duties of a Military Hospital, is designated the Chief Steward. He may be selected by the Surgeon in Charge from the Stewards assigned to him, solely on account of merit and known capacity, and not by seni ority of warrant. He is, ex-officio, the ranking Steward for the time being, and must be obeyed and respected accordingly. He is entitled by his rank to obedience from all enlisted men in the Hospital, both patients, attendants, and civilian nurses, and is immediately re sponsible to the Surgeon in Charge for the performance of his duties, and he holds his subordinates responsible for the proper performance of their duties. As an en listed man, he owes respect and prompt obedience to all orders of his military superiors. He should wear his undress uniform in the Hospital. On Musters and Inspections he must be in full dress, with side arms. The Chief Stewards mnst pay two visits daily to every part of the Hospital, viz: at nine o’clock a. m., and at evening between tatoo and taps. At these reg ular visits, he will note the condition, discipline, cleanliness, ventilation, warming and lighting of the wards, kitchens, mess-ha'ls, bath-rooms, and latrines, and he will report to the Surgeon in Charge all irregu larities. abuses, infraction or discipline, or neglect of duty that may come under his notice, necessity of re pairs, or other wants. He will see that the ration re turns are made out, the rations received, properly kept, and economically issued, and the prescribed daily diet table observed, He will be responsible for the efficient administration of the clerical duties of the Hospital. 111. A Meteorological Register (Form 11, Revised Medical Regulations, 1863,) must be kept daily in every General and Post Hospital in this Department, and transmitted monthly to the Surgeon General's Office by the Surgeon in Charge. i This Order will be placed in a conspicuous place in the office of the Hospital, and in each ward, and para graph I. will be read by the Executive Officer of each General Hospital to the convalescents in line at each Sunday Inspection.
