Full title:Report on the prevelance of enteric fever in the Royal Barracks, Dublin
Abstract:The examination by T. W. Grimshaw and C. A. Cameron (the local Registrar General and Medical Officer of Health) covers the site, plan and structure of the buildings, sewers and drainage, water and milk supplies, and air impurities. Ventilation is poor, a sewer has been ventilated close to inhabited buildings, hospital arrangements are inadequate and there is much damp timber. Toilet accommodation and arrangements are also criticized. The report suggests remedies for all these defects and gives a precis of an 1887 report by the Medical Officer of Health which supports these findings and gives detailed recommendations on similar lines. Both reports contain several maps and plans of the buildings together with numerous statistical tables showing the recent incidence of disease in terms of hospital admissions and deaths from it, not only in Dublin, but also elsewhere in Ireland and Great Britain
