Why are the iron gratings which protect the lower windows in the Stillman infirmary fastened to the masonry? In case of fire the patients in the contagious ward would be caught with only one narrow door through which to make their escape. Were this means of exit cut off, they would be faced with the certainty of death by fire. It is quite right that there should be screens over the lower windows of the infirmary to protect them from breakage, but there is no reason why they should not be so fastened as to open only from the inside. Surely the additional protection which such a precaution would provide, is well worth the trifling expense of alteration.
