Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, The History and Statutes of the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.
Monro Primus was instrumental in establishing a Royal Infirmary in Edinburgh, not only as a hospital for the poor, but more importantly as a teaching hospital for students. Primus initiated a monthly rotation for surgeons on the wards and gave himself the first round. The Infirmary became so popular that a new building was erected, with an operating theatre designed by Primus. Its foundation stone was laid in 1738 and even though the building was finally completed in 1749, patients were actually admitted from 1741.
