gain access to all interior parts of the pan for clezining. 7
VVith the foregoing and other objecte in view, the invention Will be more fully described hereinafter, and Will be more particularly pointed out in the claims appended hereto,
In the drawings, wherein like symbols rc fer to like or corresponding parts throughout the several views, r
Figure 1 15 a top plan V1eW 01 the 1111- proved pan in the'closed position.
Figure 2 is a similar view With the parts open.
Figure 3 is a side elevation of the closed pan.
Figure 4 is a section taken on the line Figure 5 is a section taken on the line 5-5 in Figure 2, and
Figure 6 is a 6-6 in Figure 1,
Referring Inore particularly to the drawings, 7 indicates the bottom and 8 the side Wall'of the improved pan, Which is preferably of metal construction and round in torm having the slightly fiattened Bides. The improved shield is indicated at 9, and is shown as hinged at 10 to the front portionof the. vertical Wall 8. The scat is shown at 11 and is hinged as indicated at 12 to the rear portion of the Wall 8, or diametrically opposite the hinge connection 10.
As shown in Figure 3, the side wall 8 is higher at the front or shield side of the pan and lower at the scat side of the pan, and besection taken on the line tween the shield and scat is arranged the pouringmouth or spout 13. The upper edge of the wall 8 is rolled over ontwardly on itself, as indicated at 14 in Figure 6, to provide an enlarged smooth bcad. This bead is adapted to receive the trogh formed by the rounded portion 15 of, the scat, there being a flange 16 on the exterior part of the wall, and a second internal fiange 17 extending on the interior part of the Wall 8. In other words, this trough construction extends on three sides of the bead 14 and not only preventsthe scat 11 from sinking, but also holds it against movement in a horizontal direction, The scat is made concave,
as iridicatcd in Figure 4, and,its central for- Ward portion may be supported upon the hollow or othsr "post 18 soldered or othcrwie secured tothe bottom 7 of the pan. The forward free edge of the scat 11 is also pref crably reinforced or stiflened' t0 sustain it from the central supporting post 18 to the side Walls 8, and for this purpose an outwardly projecting rounded bead 19 formed in the scat 11 by striking up the inaterial.
This bead is made just inwardly of the forward edge which itself is turned downwardly, and thence upwardly to form the rolled end 20. j
The shield 9 at the front is formed in a similar manner having the trough portion 21 along its front curved edge to fit over the upper beaded edge of the wall 8, and also having the upwardly curled rear edge 22 to reinforce and stiien the rear unsupported edge 01 said. shield. The shield is held re movably in place by the clips 23 and 24; while similar clips 25 and 26 are used to hold the side edges of the scat 11 in place.
These clips are hinged or otherwise secured in braekets 27 secured to the side et the pan and they are adapted to swing up and over the trough portions of the scat and shield.
Figures 1 and 3 show the closed position of the scat and shield in readiness for use, While Figures 2 and 5 show the open position of the shi-eld and scat, whereby accesrs may be hadto all parts of the pan interior for the purpose of cleaning and sterilizing the same.
It is obvious that various changes and 4 modifications may be made in the details of construction and design of the above specifically described embodiment oi this invention without departmg fromthe spirit thereof, such changes and modifications being restricted only by the scope of the following claims.
VVhat is claimed is l. A bed pan comprising a pan body, a scat hinged thereto and covering only a portion of the pan, and a shield aise hinged to said pan and spaced from the scat.
2. An improved bed pan comprising a pan body having a bottom and a side Wall higher at the front than at the rear portion, a shield pivoted to. the high front portion of the pan, and a concave scat hinged to the low rear portion of the pan side wall.
3. An improved bed pan comprising a pan b0dy including a. bottom and a aide Wa1l having a beaded upper edge, a seat hinged to said side wa1l and having a trough t0 receive the beac of the side W211i and a stifiened ree edge, and means for sec'uring the seat in the closed position.
4. An improved bed pan comprising a pan bo'dy composed of a bottom and side waH with beaded upper edge, a concave seathinged to said side wa1l and having a trough portion extending on three sides of the bead of the side Wall, said seat 21150 having an upwardly pressed bead spaced from its free unsmn mrted edge and a 1olled 0ver edge spaced from said pressed-up bead, and a post in the pan for supporting the intermefliate portion of the free edge of the seat.
An improved bed pan comprising a bottom and ide wall with beaded upper edge, a. seat for the pan, a shield spaced from the scat and hinged to the side wall, said shield having a troughed f0rward edge resting upou and about said bead of (11e side Wa1i and having a ro11ed-up rear free edge, and clips for holding suid shield in place.
