IN HOSPITAL CARE AT U.C. [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 26 October 1960
IN HOSPITAL CARE AT U.C. fOfl/silot program in the new concepts of "progressive paiMrn care" began in San Francisco with reopening of a section of the old University of California HosThe hospital (whose west end has been completely reconstructed since 1957, except for the building shell) contains two 19-bed units assigned to a minimal care program. Patients in these units will be ambulatory and will require substantially less nursing care than has been customary in general hospitals. The reduced care requirements will result in lower hospital bills. The patients will be in one- or two-bed rooms, but the costs will be $5 to S8 a day less than they would for a bed in a standard four-patient ward at the Medical Center. Rates will be Sl3 to Sl4 less than in corresponding single or double rooms for general medical and surgical patients. The minimal care units, Hospital Administrator Harold Hixson emphasized, are a pilot operation, small in scale. The number of patients who can be accommo...
EDITOR'S NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 26 October 1960
EDITOR'S NOTES As you read over this issue you may notice (as also evident in the past few issues) the obvious omnipresence of two schools, which has resulted in such references to The Synapse as the "Pharmacy Rag" or "Nursing News." We are grateful to these contributors — what bothers us is the more subtle ABSENCE of Dental and Medical school articles. It may even seem astonishing to the reader that the editors have actually tried to get some response from these schools. True, this, at best, has been a relatively poor try due mainly to the "lack of interschool contacts" on this campus. The Synapse neither hires reporters nor desires to do so; yet 'tis a shame that we have not even acquired a medical school editor. This important position takes very little of a person's time. It is hoped that someone in these schools will take the initiative to report an activity or scheduled event. It need only be written and placed in the Synapse Box which will be located at the central desk, Mill...

MEET YOUR FELLOW STUDENT ARTICULATE DENTAL CELEBRITY [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 26 October 1960
MEET YOUR FELLOW STUDENT ARTICULATE DENTAL CELEBRITY Here is Synapse's introduction of Wayne~ Arthur Takeman, a junior dental student here at the Medical Center, who was interviewed as he was seen coming out of the student store with his articulator in hand. When asked what the instrument was that he was carrying, Wayne answered, "Oh, it's an articulator for setting dentures. You know, it reproduces the temporal mandibular movements." Oh yes, of course. Wayne is a familiar figure on campus in his dental smock and southern looking tan. The tan only looks better in contrast to his blue eyes and light brown crew-cut. He stands five feet, ten inches high. O.K. with the vital statistics girls. Wayne has many exciting adventures to relate about his many summer travels to the islands, and last summer to New York, Washington, D.C. and Florida. What luck this fellow has! His job, which he maintains here in the city with Leed's Shoes, offered him a job with a store in New York. Of course, Way...
SKETCHES BY TROUVERE [Newspaper Article] — Synapse - The UCSF student newspaper — 26 October 1960
SKETCHES BY TROUVERE Impressions of o contemporary Wandering Minstrel As I see it, one of the biggest things wrong with the dental profession is that a lot of the people in it don't look upon themselves as being in medicine or medical science. I understand that the dental students take all sorts of scientific courses—anatomy, pathology, microbiology and the like—but that some look upon them as required courses "stuck-in-the-curriculum-to-plague-me-whi ch-have-no-bearing-on-fi xing- teeth!" Now what the dentist actually does is a mystery to me. I go there and he taps and probes about my mouth while I clutch the chair hoping all is well. Usually it's not, so he drills and scrapes and fills my mouth with a variety of instruments and materials and then sends me on my way for six months of happy chewing. I'm not sure what actually goes on, but I know that my tooth-ache was stopped, the sore on my cheek was gone, and my mouth was clean. This is as important to me as when a sore throat is ...
