As a result of eighteen months experience in the public health service of the state, several important suggestions have forced themselves upon my attention.
1. The authority granted to the State Board of Health is not sufficient to enable it to do as effective work as it should for the preservation of the public health. This is especially true as regards the abatement of nuisances of various kinds, which, with the authority now possessed by the board, can be accomplished only by the very slow operation of court procedure, to determine which may require months.
2. The board should have authority to supervise all contemplated water supplies and sewerage systenis, and to negative any proposition for the construction of either sewerage or water suply plants when deemed by it necessary for the protection of the public health.
3. The scope of the board's operations needs to be greatly enlarged, and several additional paid skilled employees are necessary if the board is to be expected materially to reduce disease in this state.
4. It is very important, in order that a very early diagnosis of diphtheria may be made, (and possibly some other diseases), and in order that it may be scientifically determined when a convalescent diphtheria patient may be released from quarantine with safety to the public, that there be in the state a number of places selected where a competent bacteriologist may be employed for this special work in which haste is so essential.
5. It is deemed of the greatest importance that a hospital be opened for the treatment of trachoma, which has been shown to prevail very extensively in Wyoming and other near-by counties. As already shown, this is a disease which, by impairing vision, interferes with the earning capacity of our citizens and in some cases results in blindness.
6. It is deemed essential that the sanitary survey of the mining regions of the state be continued the coming summer, with a view to a further investigation of the hookworm disease.
7. The law regulating the reporting of infectious diseases should department have thus far failed to induce physicians to obey the law, and, unless prompt reports of these cases are sent in, no effective work in prevention can be expected.
8. The law regarding the registration of vital statistics is in its operation a farce. The majority of death reports come from undertakers and other laymen. Hence, the causes of death as given are, as a rule, extremely defective and misleading. The result is, that the vital statistics, as reported to the health department and printed at the cost of the state, are almost without value.
9. On account of the occasional hesitation of prosecuting attorneys to aid the board in the prosecution of unlicensed physicians, it is deemed necessary that the board should have the right in exceptional cases to employ a special attorney in the conduct of such prosecutions.
10. From the above suggestions it will be seen that, for the accomplishment of the purposes for which the board was created, namely: the improvement in the sanitary conditions of the state and the diminution of preventable diseases among the people, the appropriations granted to the board should be made adequate to accomplish these ends.
