Scope and Content Note

This series indicates daily number of orders given to seclude patients at the Rome State School, later the Rome Developmental Center (note: only male patients are secluded) or to place them in either a camisole (straight-jacket) or restraint sheet. Numbers are given by gender. One sheet is used per month, and statistics are totaled at the base of each column at month's end. The series was created for statistical purposes only; no identifying information for restrained patients is given.
