In 1847, Semmelweis introduced hand washing with chlorinated lime solutions for interns who had performed autopsies. Semmelweis was outraged by the indifference of the medical profession and began writing open and increasingly angry letters to prominent European obstetricians, at times denouncing them as irresponsible murderers. His contemporaries, including his wife, believed he was losing his mind and he was in 1865 committed to an asylum (mental institution). Semmelweis died there 14 days later, supposedly beaten to death by the guards.
