Emergency medicine in 1920

I am a 40 year old man that died of a skull fracture in August, 1920.
I was brought to the city hospital of our large metropolitan area by my brother. I died later that night. Cause of my skull trauma is unknown. What was my medical treatment like? What was the education and medical training of my doctors? How sterile was the hospital? What drugs would I have been treated with? What happened to my body and family when I died?
Asking because a former resident of the house I now own many years later died this way.
