COLLAPSIBLE HYPODERMIC SYRINGE HOLDER Filed Aug. 17, 1964 S E S DRR DAM AP FS c V M S 2 BLORE, KLAROU/ST 8 SPAR/(MAN BUG/(HORN,

United States Patent Office 3,263,820 Patented August 2, 1966 3,263 820 COLLAPSIBLE HYPODERlVIIC SYRINGE HOLDER LEtoile K. McFadden and Lois K. Sparks, both of 14180 SE. Hawthorne Court, Portland, Oreg. Filed Aug. 17, 1964, Ser. No. 389,985 4 Claims. (Cl. 211-60) This invention relates to a hypodermic syringe holder, and more particularly to a collapsible hypodermic syringe holder.

In hospitals, it is customary for instructions for hypodermic injections for patients to be placed on medicine cards individual to each of the patients, and each individual hypodermic syringe is filled with the medicine for the particular intended patient and is kept with the instruction card for that patient. For purposes of efficiency, several cards and syringes for several patients are often placed on a single tray and transported from patient to patient, which requires great care to insure that the cards and syringes do not become mixed up. It would be desirable to provide a simple, inexpensive device to hold each card and syringe against separation during such transportation.

An object of the invention is to provide a hypodermic syringe holder.

Another object of the invention is to provide a collapsible hypodermic syringe holder.

A further object of the invention is to provide a holder in which a medicine card holds a hypodermic syringe in the holder.

Another object of the invention is to provide a holder for a hypodermic syringe which is adjustable between the form of a fiat sheet for storage and the form of a folded stand for use.

The invention provides a holder in the form of a fiat sheet foldable into a stand having an upwardly facing notch for receiving a hypodermic syringe and having a portion for holding a medicine card associated with the syringe in the notch. The holder preferably is collapsible from its folded position so that it may be stored in a fiat, sheet-like condition.

A complete understanding of the invention may be obtained from the following detailed description of a collapsible syringe holder forming a specific embodiment thereof, when read in conjunction with the appended drawings, in which:

FIG. 1 is a fragmentary, perspective view of a syringe holder forming one embodiment of the invention while in use to hold a syringe;

FIG. 2 is a plan view of the syringe holder of FIG. 1 while in collapsed condition; and

FIG. 3 is 'a perspective view of a clip of the syringe holder of FIG. 1.

Referring now in detail to the drawings, a syringe holder (FIGS. 1 and 2) forming one embodiment of the invention comprises a blank 12 of cardboard or other semi-stiff material having scored or hinge lines 14, 15 and 16 forming panels 17, 18, 19 and 20. The panel 17 has a rounded tab 21 adapted to enter slit 22 in the panel to secure the blank in the form of a triangular stand, the tab 21 resting on top of the .panel 20. The blank has a slot 25 in the panels 18 and 19 of a width such that the edges of the slot frictionally engage and hold a syringe 26 of the largest diameter of syringes to be held thereby, and ends 29 and 30 of the slot are semicircular. The length of the portion of the slot in the panel 19, which is the front panel, is substantially less than the portion of the slot in the panel 18, which is the rear panel, so that the syringe slants downwardly and a protector tip 32 of the syringe rests on the carrying tray 33.

The front panel 19 has a slit 40 therein through which a clip 42 of plastic material extends, a base 44 of the clip being secured by adhesive to the back side of the panel 19. The clip 42 has a back portion 46 and a finger 48 cut therefrom and oifset somewhat forwardly from the back portion. The clip is adapted to frictionally grip and press against a medicine card 50 having printed identifying and instructional indicia (not shown) on the front face thereof. The clip holds the card in an upright position to be easily read and also in a position overhanging the syringe to require the card to be removed and read before the syringe can be lifted out of the generally V-shaped notch formed by the slot 25.

The holder 10 may be of the single type or, as illustrated, may include a row of blanks including the blank 12 and blanks 52 identical with the blank 12 and secured to each other along pairs of tearable portions 54 securing the corresponding panels of the blanks together; The entire row of blanks may be folded as a unit to form a single multi-syringe holder, each blank having a clip holding a medicine card. The blanks may be unfolded and returned to flattened condition for storage in a stack with other rows of blanks. Alternatively, the blanks may be separated from each other to form individual holders, and the individual holders can be folded and secured in operative positions and released and laid flat for storage in sheet form.

Since the medicine cards are positioned by the clips over the syringes, the user must note each card before using the syringe associated therewith. Also, the clips hold each card securely adjacent the syringe to which the instruction on the card is directed.

It is to be understood that the above-described arrangements are simply illustrative of the application of the principles of the invention. Numerous other arrangements may be readily devised by those skilled in the art which will embody the principles of the invention and fall within the spirit and scope thereof.

What is claimed is:

1. In a holder,

a tubular member having a fiat base side and an upper apex portion provided with an upwardly facing notch for receiving a hypodermic syringe,

a medicine card adapted to have instructions thereon,

and clip means for holding the medicine card in a position overhanging said notch such that the syringe cannot be conveniently moved without shifting the card.

2. In a holder,

a sheet of cardboard having parallel fold lines separating said sheet into two end panels and two intermediate panels,

said end panels having interlocking portions adapted to hold said sheet in the form of a triangle,

said sheet having a slot extending transversely to said fold lines and extending from an intermediate portion of one of said intermediate panels to an intermediate portion of the other of said intermediate panels to define a notch when said sheet is held in the form of a triangle,

one of said intermediate panels having a slit therein,

and a clip secured to said sheet in a position extending through said slit and adapted to hold a medicine card in a position over said notch.

3. In a holder,

a sheet of cardboard having parallel score lines extending therealong to permit said sheet to be folded into a triangular tube and also being provided with notches in one apex of said triangular tube and spaced along said apex,

said sheet also having a pluralityvof tear lines extending transverse to said score lines and positioned between said notches,

and a plurality of clips secured to said sheet between said tear lines for holding medicine cards in positions overhanging said notches.

4. In a holder,

a sheet of cardboard having parallel score lines extending therealong to permit said sheet to be folded into a triangular tube and also being provided with notches in one apex of said triangular tube and spaced along said apex,

said sheet also having a plurality of tear lines extending transverse to said score lines and positioned between said notches,

the outside edge of said sheet including interlocking portions positioned between said tear lines.
