  • Many women died of Purple Fever in student clinic which was why they were so afraid to go in there. Very small numbers died in the Midwife clinics however.
  • In his research in 1847, Ignaz Semmelweis showed the effectiveness of washing your hands. This was a major breakthrough because it had never been considered before
  • I turned out that the students had gone from performing autopsies to delivering babies without washing their hands. Semmelweis urged them to wash their hands
  • Many doctors felt insulted because they did not believe their hands were dirty.
  • How dare you imply that my hands are dirty! You should be locked up
  • Semmellweis was locked in an insane asylum and died 14 days later
