|Receiving the Keeley treatment
|Caption: "[Engraved for The Standard Guide Company.] The Keeley Institute--Taking the Hypodermic Treatment. [See "Keeley Institute."]". From text: "An illustration of the method pursued is given in this work. This shows Dr. Keeley in the foreground, noting the condition of patients as they pass from the hands of the operating physicians. The four daily hypodermic injections are given in the left arm, a slit being made in the shirt sleeves of the patients, as a rule, although many prefer to roll the sleeve up to the shoulder. At each operating table there are two physicians, one to use the needle, the other to see that patients are provided with remedies for minor indispositions. The former observes closely the pupils of the eyes of every patient as he approaches, of these (in the position of Dr. Keeley as shown in the engraving) who takes each patient by the wrist after treatment, as he passes out, to note the temperature of the body, condition of the skin, dilation of pupil, etc., and also enquires regarding the general health of the subject. One line is usually reserved for new patients, and the physician who is detailed to attend to the duty last named, in this line, also supplies the liquor required in two-ounce, four-ounce or eight-ounce bottles, as the case may be. No patient is refused whisky. Just so long as he desires it, it is freely given. He usually declines it twenty-four hours after the treatment has begun."
