The Operation_RTP_SFW_ 8 Nov 13

Here is another photo of an operation in progress from back in the 1940’s.  It looks as if the surgeon has on some type of gloves, but neither he or the nurse has on any type of mask.  Obviously this was not some type of major surgery or I doubt that my father would have been allowed in with his camera, but back in the day you never know.  I do not have any idea who the doctor was or the nurse either.  If anyone knows, please let us know … thanks for looking and please check back … Frank

Operating Room at Old Sacred Heart Hospital …

I do not know if this photograph was ” set-up ” or if this was an actual surgery.  Look at the knife that the nurse or doctor is using on the patient … I used to have a scuba diving knife that looked better that the knife she is using.  I do not have any information on this photo, I just think that it looks interesting, scarey, but interesting.  I had my tonsils removed at the old hospital back in 1959 and I can remember it very vividly.  Back in those days, they dropped ether to put you to sleep.  I can remember a nurse standing over me, placing a mask over my nose and telling me to count backwards from 25.  When I hit 10 I thought that I was going to throw-up and when I hit 5, I was out!

If anyone wants to share their old Sacred Heart hospital memories, you are more than welcome to here …
