. Be it known that I, MICHAEL FORD, citizen of the United' 'Sta'tes, residin at Omaha, in tlie'eounty of Douglas and State of Nebraska, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Hosp'ltal Bed's, of

which the following isfa' specificatio' rel "tes' to 3:11, provement hospital teas; and has for its'objeet; ,to

provide a sbed'fq'r general use; in hospitals or" ind vidual use; Which Will include new and 'useful' featu'res Without addingmaterially to the-cost of manufature. Q; The invention} consists of"thenovelcon-' struct-ion, eembafaticnana arrangement of as described'herei1'1 and claimed,- and as illustrated in the accompanying drawing",

' it "being 7 understood that changes in form,

size, proportion and minor details maybe made as may be found to be of advantage I and more particularly pointed out -inthe claims. p 7 V; a

In the drawing, Flgure l ls 'a iew 111 slde elevation of a hospital bed embodying my iii) invention, the douche-supporting standard being disposed horizontally; Fig. 2- is-a transverse section on line 2+2-of Fig. 1, the douche-supporting standard being ex tended, and disposed vertically, a douche receptacle beingadded. Fig. 3 is a'transi verse section through the post and standard on line 3-3 of-Fig. 2 the scale jb'ein'g en: larged. Fig; {is a detail relatingfto Fig; '3, showing a face vieii; of a grooved aliningblock. "Fig. 5 is a, side view of clip em'T ployed for supporting the standard in a horizontal" position-.- F-ig.-'6 is atransij er'se section 011* line 6 6' of Fig. ;5. Fig; 7 is a plan vie-W of a towel rack employed! Referring noyv torthe drawing for-a more particular descriptiom'th'e invention is. illustrated in connection with the conventional head-pieces andvfootpi'ece 9 of a bed and intermediate side rails. The usual racks ll are employed for use in connection With the movable section 12 andprops v13-for supporting a patient in aninclinedposition, certain other features being. also used and not now "specifical 1y "described," since they do I,

not relate to the present invention.

In order that liquid ,douches may be conveniently administered, and that'the pressure of the liquid to determine the force of the floWfor the douches, may be increased or dimirnished, as may be required, I provide a standard 14 Which may be secured to one .Spcci fieatioii of Letters iat ent;

When the douche is not in use, the stand 7 ard may be swung to a horizontal position and secured to the post 27 of the foot piece 9. A collar 28 is 'mounted on this post at substantially the same height as the collar 21, and is provided with an apertured bracket 29; and when the standard is swung downwardly to a horizontal position the extension 17 is moved outwardly a limited distance so that the projection 20 will enter the aperture of the bracket, and by use of the set-screw 26 any slidable movement of the extension with reference to the standard will be prevented, to'maintain the projection in the aperture of the bracket, the ball 19 being in engagement with the post 27 to preventvibration, the standard at this time bein disposed in thehorizontal groove 5 of t e-falining block 22, and firmly held therein by means; of the screw 24..

Numeral 30 indicates a towel-rack which, preferably, is mounted on the posts and preferably has a length substantially equal to the width of the head piece 9.

Having fully" described my invention, what I claim and desire to secure by Let ters Patent is, y

'1'. In a receptacle-supporting device for a bed frame, a standard, an alining-block mounted on the frame and provided with a vertical groove and a horizontal groove, a contact-block provided with a groove, a bolt traversing the contact-block, the standard I and alining block and 'havinga threaded connection with the frame, said bolt being adapted to be rotated for pressing the standard in the vertical groove of the alining-block for sustaining thestandard in an upright position when the receptacle en-v gagesthe standard, and adapted to be rotated for pressing the standard in the horizontal groove of said alining-block for sustaining the standard in a horizontal position when the receptacle has been "removed therefrom. v

2. In a receptacle-support for a bed frame, said frame being provided with a vertical groove andhaving a horizontal groove intersecting the vertical groove, a tubular, transversely apertured standard havinga transverse curvature conforming substantially to the transverse curvature of the grooves, a bolt engaging the frame and disposed in the transverse apertures of the standard andadapted to have a rotatable movement. for pressing the standard within the horizontal groove of the frame to support the standard in a horizontal position, and adapted to be rotated for pressing the standard within the vertical groove of the frame to maintain the standard in an upright position for supporting a receptacle thereon.

3. In a receptacle-support for a bed frame, said frame having a part provided with a bracket and having a part provided with a vertical groove and a horizontal groove intersecting the vertical groove, a tubular, transversely apertured standard having a transverse curvature conforming substantially to the transverse curvature of'the grooves, a rod provided with a, detent and mounted in the bore of, the tubular standard, means to; adjust the rod longitudinally of said standard, a bolt engaging the frame and. disposed in the transverse'apertures of the standard and adapted to have a rotatable movement while the standard is "61'1- gaging the bracket for maintaining the standard in a horizontal position, and

adapted to havea rotatable movement for pressing the standard within the vertical groove of the frame to maintain the standard and its rod in an upright positionfor supporting a receptacle on the vdetent of said rod. r
