Abstract
  • This enquiry was initiated at a time when it was realised that a number of hospital authorities were beginning to think that the addition of recovery homes might assist in the solution of the problem of providing a better hospital service. A recovery home provides accommodation for patients in whom the disease has definitely begun to abate, or the risk of complications after operation is only slight, so that with proper care and nursing the patient is likely to progress to recovery. This report tells of the actual working of certain recovery homes, their functions, possibilities and limitations.
