At one Army hospital in Burlington, Vermont for example, the ward master had a long list of rules: chamber pots were to be cleaned at least three times a day, and lined with water or charcoal. Beds and bedclothes were to be aired daily, and exposed to sunlight when possible. Once a month the straw in each bed sack was to be changed. If a patient died, the straw was to be burned.
Personal hygiene was emphasized: each patient was to be washed every day and his hair combed. On some wards, a female attendant would clean, cook and scrub – they received $6 a month plus one ration a day for their efforts. This was a model institution. Even so, infection spread: in one month, a pneumonia epidemic killed seventy-five residents in the Burlington hospital.
People maintaining their proper cleanliness feel shame in meeting with the people having dirty face, hands, soiled clothes and bad smelling clothes because they feel their insult while meeting with such type of people. Cleanliness of body is really very necessary for the good physical health. On the other hand, physical cleanliness gives inner cleanliness and keeps heart and mind clean. Cleanliness of mind keeps us mentally healthy and prevents from the psychological problems.
