Eddowes

Behind this, the liver was stabbed as if by the point of a sharp instrument. Below this was another incision into the liver of about two and a half inches, and below this the left lobe of the liver was slit through by a vertical cut.

There was a cut from the upper part of the slit on the under surface of the liver to the left side, and another cut at right angles to this, which were about an inch and a half deep and two and a half inches long. Liver itself was healthy.

The pancreas was cut, but not through, on the left side of the spinal column.

Three and a half inches of the lower border of the spleen by half an inch was attached only to the peritoneum.

None of that has medical value.

Indeed, but Central London had - and still has - many, many hospitals. Guy's, Bart's, St Thomas's, Middlesex and UCH were all big hospitals which were closer to where Nichols and Eddowes were living in 1867.

Indeed.

Two of them were involved in the study.

These two patients were accepted at the London Hospital.

Life is like that.

Why do you use the word accepted, rather than admitted?

Do you imagine a bedridden Polly Nichols running a dangerously high temperature was rejected by her nearest hospital (Guys), which was also involved in the the rheumatic fever research, and told to cross the river to see if the London Hospital had a spare bed?

Because she was accepted into the study when she was admitted.
Guy's had a history of overcrowded women's wards.
Check it out!

She had been ill for 12 days,bedridden for 8.Perhaps the closest hospital could/would not admit her.I don't know.
Lot worse happens here in Melbourne in 2018.
One of the reasons I spent years fundraising for St Vincent's Hospital in Melbourne.
Also used to help out at Ozanam House.
Some of my alcohol and drug work was setting up the prototype for the decentralisation of services in Victoria.It was known as WDAS,Westernport Drug and Alcohol Services.That prototype has spread and been duplicated successfully.
I spent time at the coalface in modern times.

You and Sam simply enjoy splitting hairs.

And what about Barts, UCH, St Thomas's and the Middlesex? What if Guy's had beds available, for that matter?
