Scope and Content Note

These inspection reports on Rome State School colonies track the population census. Data represents the overall Rome population for most reports (wards and colonies). There are also some reports for individual colonies, but it is unclear whether all colonies were inspected individually on a routine basis.

Included in the reports are the time inspection started and concluded; the number of patient accidents, injuries, and deaths; the number of patients not located at time of inspections; the number of colony employees, admissions, discharges, and escapes; the types of occupational therapy and education work conducted at the colonies; the general health of patients; and general remarks on observations made.
