Title

062 Along - paraplegic patient

Description

Along fell from a tree while searching for food and sustained a serious injury resulting in permanent paralysis of his lower limbs. He became one of the hospital's longterm patients and eventually learned to use a wheelchair. When a telephone exchange was installed in the hospital Along and another paraplegic patient were taught to operate it. This gave then full time employment and a wage, and they became very important and valued members of the hospital community.
