9781332522699: Manual of Bacteriology and Pathology for Nurses (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Manual of Bacteriology and Pathology for Nurses

For ages the leper had been considered unclean, and Since the dawn of the world of man had plague infested cities been shunned, and, later, those who were afflicted and their habitations were purified by baths and smudges and noxious fumes.

Then an Observing Dutchman of an inventive turn, Leeuwenhoek, of Delft, about the year 1680 produced a lens of such power that this enemy Of man could be seen, though it was not recognized as such at that time. Though Leeuwenhoek certainly discovered the existence Of bacteria and described them, neither he nor any one else succeeded in connecting them with disease for nearly two centuries. So for two hundred years, though its presence was known and its guilt Ofttimes suspected, the disease germ remained unconvicted.

Oliver Wendell Holmes, an American physician author, in 1843 suspected the cause Of puerperal fever and wrote on -its contagiousness. In reply to the criticism and invectives which were heaped upon him because he ventured SO new and astonishing an idea in medicine he wrote: It is as a lesson rather than a reproach that I call up the memory Of these irreparable errors and wrongs.
