EXPENDITURE OF THE METROPOLITAN ASYLUMS
The report of the Asylums Board, 1885, shows an increased expenditure, and deals with the subject as a whole. From it we learn that, although an enormous amount of money was spent, infectious disease had increased, and proceeded on very much the same lines as heretofore. Indeed, the entire policy of the Metropolitan Asylums Board seems to have been based on the idea of providing everything for an emergency, with which the Board was unable to cope when it arose, instead of providing for average requirements, accompanied by elastic arrangements that could grasp all the necessities of an epidemic when it occurred. In support of this statement the report refers to a number of striking facts. Taking the years from 1880 to 1884, the capacity of the hospitals and average number of beds occupied was as follows:
Again, in the year ending Michaelmas, 1884, when there was an epidemic of smallpox, the hospitals were barely one-half full, and yet accommodation for another 512 was added at Winchmore-hill. According to the official statement of the Metropolitan Asylums Board, the cost per head per day of the hospitals, for the year ending Michaelmas, 1884, was:-Eastern, 138. 9d.; South-Western, Es. 1d.; Western, 15s. 1d.; South-Eastern, 13s. 2d.; North-Western, 118. 10d.; Plaistow, 118 5d.; ships, Ss. 4d.; Darenth Camp, 5s. A comparison of the relative cost of the maintenance of officers and patients per day also brings out some curious results :
In 1884, with an average number of 1331 patients, there appears to have been an excessive number of officers employed. The discrepancies in the various hospitals of the cost of maintaining patients and officers is, the report observes, not only very remarkable but very suggestive. It is extremely questionable, it proceeds, whether the Local Government Board would have allowed such a state of things to exist in any workhouse or district school. It appears that the increase of expenditure in the year ended Lady Day, 1884, as compared with the corresponding period of 1880, was £187,000. The amount of the calls made upon the several unions and parishes for the year ending Michaelmas, 1884, was £454,302, while for the half-year to Lady Day of the present year the amount was £325,661. Against this alarmingly increasing expenditure, the committee contend that the number of patients under treatment bears no proportion whatever, the average number for the years 1883 and 1884 being 503 and 904 respectively. The report deals with other apparent irregularities on the part of the managers, and, reviewing the operations of the Board from its commencement, the committee concludes that the results are eminently unsatisfactory. There has, they allege, been an enormous expenditure on large establishments which were far in excess of the requirements for pauper cases, and, though they are used to a great extent for non-pauper cases, for which they were never intended, are far from full. The management has evidently been unsound in principle and most lavish in cost-as an example, the introduction of electric lighting into these establishments. Again, the expenditure of the Eastern Hospital for 1884 was £59,910, and the daily average of patients was 239. Thus the annual cost of a patient, on an average, at this hospital was about £250. As a large number of the patients were children, and as the expenditure referred to does not include rent or rates, it may be seen at a glance that the management of the Eastern Hospital was extravagant and wasteful, if not sinful. Spirits, wines, and beers were consumed in extraordinary quantities. In the last quarter of 1884 "there was said to have been consumed 1455 bottles of champagne, 970 bottles of beaune, 2571 bottles of port, 2447 of 'pint' bottles of port, besides sherry, brandy, whisky, gin, claret, and hock. There was also consumed during the same Jack-quarter of a year £85 worth of mineral waters, £116 worth of beer, and £443 worth of milk." Yet infectious diseases have increased, although the stamping out of infectious diseases in the metropolis was supposed to be one of the objects for which the Metropolitan Asylums Board was created.
