Changing Concepts in the Care of Hospitalized Patients

By Neva R. Deardorff

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, June 1949

This piece explores changes in health service and medical care as it relates particularly to the care of hospitalized patients. The author identifies the expanding concepts of health and the possibilities of its improvement along with new bases for the creation of communities to hospitals and to the health services that the communities expect of hospitals. The piece concludes by asserting that the changing concept of the care of hospitalized patients reaches back into new concepts of health itself which include new concepts of the content and practice of medicine and new concepts of the relations of a community to its hospitals among other areas.
