    Scope and content

    Series forms part of Nova Scotia Hospital fonds and consists of admission slips, applications for admission, and admission books relating to the admittance of patients to the hospital. The incorporating legislation set out the admission procedure to be followed for admissions to the hospital. Admission slips, dating between 1860 and 1904, are Form "B" under the Act and are certificates from medical practitioners confirming the patient's mental status. The application forms for admission are Form "A" under the Act and are sworn documents, usually completed by the patient's family, giving a mental history of the patient. These date from between 1867 and 1902 and have been bound into volumes often labelled as admission books. Admission registers consist of books giving the date of admission and brief information on each patient admitted between 1917-1941 and 1953-1958, including the admission number assigned. The admission slips and admission books are arranged in admission number order.
