082 women went into hospitals … meningitis

“Women went into hospitals to die of burst bladders, collapsed lungs, overtaxed hearts and meningitis of the spine.”  Health care was not as prominent back in the early 1900’s as it is today.  Common colds would kill men, women, and especially babies in that decade.  Pneumonia and influenza were the leading causes of death in 1900.  Poor refrigeration to foods such as milk, eggs, and poultry caused numerous food borne infections creating many diseases in the community.  Meningitis can be either viral or bacterial.  Meningitis is an inflammation of the membranes that cover the brain and spinal cord causing severe damages such as hearing loss, brain damage and learning disabilities. 

Ragtime takes place in the early 20th century where many illnesses and health concerns were showing up due to the lack of vaccines and medicines.  People who are near others with meningitis can receive the same infection as well.  Anyone can get meningitis but its people with a weak immune system and young children are at higher risk to contract the illness.
