If we, as a profession, deprecate treatment by the unqualified on the ground of the dangers which may attach to the treatment of grave cases by the ignorant, can we then refrain from condemning, as perilous to the patient, the treatment of grave bacterial infections by those who are ignorant of bacteriology? And if we as a profession condemn consultation by correspondence on the ground that a trustworthy opinion cannot be based upon medical data which are furnished by an ignorant patient, how then shall we refrain from condemning the system by which a medical man who is ignorant of bacteriology selects the bacteriological data upon which a diagnosis unqualified on the ground that such treatment may sometimes be perilous to the patient, and if we condemn consultation by correspondence on the ground that this system would often work badly, we must, on the same basis, condemn the system by which the bacteriologically uninstructed delegate bacteriological work to the laboratories if this system is occasionally perilous to the patient and if it often I suppose that no one who has any experience of the practical working of this system of delegation has any doubt on this point.
