This is a pictorial representation in posed photographs of the work of the public health nurse in the handling of a case of open tuberculosis in which a delay is encountered in finding sanatorium accommodations. Home technics for the avoidance of infection are demonstrated. The role of the nurse in arranging sanatorium care and the necessary social services is explained. It is a good job of clear exposition. The photography is good and the brief accompanying captions are clear and concise. The pamphlet should be of use to public health agencies dealing with tuberculosis and to physicians in the same field.
