In some other part of the account, thus leaving the

FFICB OF THE MEDICAL DIRECTOR,
Department of the South,
Hilton Head, a C., March IT, 1865.
No. 5. f
I. The strictest discipline is required in the adminls
tration of a Military Hospital. It is a paramount duty
of a Medical Officer of the Army to maintain the disci
pline 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
have hitherto been remarkable for their excellent dis
cipline. The Medical Director regretted to find in his
recent inspections the nnmilitary neglect of regula
tions in regard to dress and general discipline; the
careless and unsoldierly bearing of many of the con
valescents and attendants; and cither the entire ab
sence of the customary compliments between the offi
cer* 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, must ba rigid
ly enforced, and all infractions of discipline, or dis
obedience of orders, must be promptly punished. The
attention of all officers on duty in General Hospitals
in this Department, is called to paragraphs 253, 854,
266, 260 and 267 Revised Regulations of the Army,
1363, and to General Orders, No. 167, Headquarters,
Department of the South, series 1364.
Whenever an Oflleer enters a Ward,the Wardmaster
must command attention, on which the patients, who
are able to do so, will rise and stand in the position of
attention until tbe 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 without
particular occupation, he will rise on his approach, or,
If standing, he will 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 p'aced on the floor at the foot of the bed.
Nothing must he hidden under the bedstead.
Every patient in Hospital, » ho is able, will wash his
face and hands at least every morning, and hi* 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.
T he attendants are especially enjoined to be cleanly
in their persons, neat in their dress* and soldierly in
No attendant or patient In U. 8. A. General Hospital
in thi* Department must leave the limits of the Hospi
tal ufilesß 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 tbe
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-ofllcio, 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 tbe Hospital, both patients*
attendants, and civilian nurses, and is immediately re
sponsible to tbe Surgeon lu Charge for the performance
of bis 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 ?o
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 must 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-ba’ls, bath-looms, and latrines,
and he will report to the Surgeon in Charge all irregu
larities. abuses, infraction of discipline, or neglect of
duty that may come uude#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
111. A Meteorological Register (Form 11, Revised
Medical Regulations, 1863,) must be kept dally in

and transmitted monthly to the Surgeon General’s
Office by the Surgeon in Charge.
This Order will be placed in a conspicuous place in
