    Abstract: The collection comprises three logs that list medical treatments administered and surgeries performed by a variety of physicians from approximately the 1920s to 1932. Two of the logs list medical treatments alphabetically by ailment, disease, or injury; entries include the patient's gender, the result of the treatment, complications, and the number of days the patient was hospitalized. The third log alphabetically lists surgeries performed; entries include the surgeon's surname, the patient's gender, and whether the patient died or was discharged. No patient names or treatment dates are listed in the logs. No hospital or clinic name appears on any of the logs, but the logs are probably from a medical facility in Orange County, California.

    Acquisition Information

    Transferred from the University of California, Irvine Medical Center in 1996.

    Processing History

    Minimally processed by Cyndi Shein, 2008.

    Historical Background

    Although the origin of these medical logs is unknown, they were transferred to the archives by the University of California, Irvine Medical Center (UCIMC) in 1996, suggesting that they were most likely inherited from one of UCIMC's predecessors. Hence, these logs are probably records of the Orange County General Hospital (OCGH), which served Orange County, California beginning in the early 1900s. When UCI began using OCGH as a teaching hospital in 1968, the hospital's name was changed to Orange County Medical Center (OCMC). UCI purchased OCMC in 1976, assuming its operation, management, and financing and OCMC became UCIMC, combining patient care, teaching and research.
