In 1847, Dr. Ignaz Semmelweis noticed that ladies giving birth in a maternity clinic in Vienna … were dying at an alarming rate!
The deaths were attributed to an ailment dubbed, “childbed fever” … but Semmelweis wasn’t buying it.
He began investigating and discovered that women treated in the doctors’ ward were dying 5x more often than those in the midwives’ clinic!
He quickly determined that doctors were conducting autopsies, as well as delivering babies. And to make matters far worse … these doctors were often moving directly from one procedure to the next – spreading infection from dead bodies to maternity ward patients!
To halt transmission, Semmelweis introduced simple disinfection procedures. Maternity wards were to be kept clean … and doctors were required to wash their hands. As a result, the rate of “childbed fever” plummeted.
Despite its effectiveness … his solution was ridiculed by many doctors, who considered it insulting to be required to wash their hands!
The incessant criticism eventually led Dr. Semmelweis to suffer a nervous breakdown.
He ended up in a mental asylum … and died, in 1865.
Ironically, his cause of death was ruled; sepsis … the very same thing that had killed all those women in the maternity ward!
