Medical Problems

By: Ja'Quez Dickens

Victorian England Hospitals

The hospitals were viewed more as a gateway of death then a place for healing. If people was to visited the hospital they would see surgery being performed on people without anesthesia at a highly risk of catching a deadly infection or maybe even viruses.

How The Diseases Were Cured

The sick thought that bathing removed protective oils from a person's

skin. When a person was ill, sunlight and fresh air were not let in the room. They were

also not allowed to get out of bed for exercise; which we now know leads to a faster

recovery

What Cause Medical Problems

The public health for this era was incredibly primitive they did't even know what the diseases was or how it was cause. The people wouldn't die from there illness but the medicine they gave them for there illness would kill them.
