Hello there, this is my first post on this fantastic site, so hello to you all, and congratulations to the creators for an amazing resource.
I am looking for information on the 17th General Hospital whilst in Naples (Carderelli Hospital). Photographs (especially of convalescent wards and outside grounds), department layout at the Carderelli, 1st peron accounts etc.
My aim is to create a mental image of a patient being
1) admitted for trauma OUT of combat (a fall for example),
2) first off triage (Emergency Rooms at Generals?),
3) referal for x-rays, then orthapaedics,
4) physical therapy and rehab/convalescing for a couple of months for muscular leg injury.
ESPECIALLY interested in the rehabilitation/convalescent wards/department at the Carderelli, as this would be the longest phase of such a patient's experience. Photos of the wards would be amazing! And the surrounding grounds.
All info welcome for rich detail: First person accounts are great. Dcotors names, nurses, what the food was like! Anything that comes to mind about this hospital in Naples!
Would also be interested in info on similar Generals in Naples that were established between fall '43 and Feb '44, if anything comes to mind.
I do apologise for the tall request! But nothing ventured nothing gained, and we all know what a big place the internet is!
All the best.
