Patented Aug. 1 1933 UNITED STATES Y 1,920,396 r MEDICINE GLASS COVER AND MARKER Edward Johnson, Montclair, N. .L, assignor to Meinecke & Company, New York, N. Y., a Corporation of New Jersey Application September 16, 1932 Serial No. 633,415
3 Claims. (Cl. 2157) were given to a patient, serious results might 10 occur.
At thepresent time the custom usually employed is to write either the patients name or the room number on a small card which is placed under the medicine glass. Under that system, the
difficulties are that it is quite possible, and it sometimes happens, that the wrong medicine is given to a patient. The reason for this is that,
in the drug room where severalmedicines are being prepared for different patients, even though the proper card'is placed under the medicine, occasionally, when it becomes necessary to take these medicines into the ward or into a patients room, the cards and medicines become misplaced or confused.
The present invention overcomes these difficulties entirely. The invention consists of an article, preferably round, which is made to fit over a medicine glass or tumbler and has means for indicating the .patients name and room number where necessary, and also has means for holding a medicine, either in pill, tablet or capsule form, which has been prepared for the patient.
The invention is illustrated in the following drawing in which: Fig. 1 is a plan View of the preferred form of the invention.
Figs. 2 and 3 are modifications thereof.
Fig. 4 is a perspective view-of the device in use on a medicine glass.
a flat portion, roughened or frosted by sand blasting or acid etching, suitable for writing on with pencil or otherwise.
. said depression adjacent said rim forming with Fig. 5 is a cross-section taken on the line X-X On each side are depressions 8, best seen in Fig. 1, for holding capsules or pills or medicines in other forms. On the frosted surface portion '7, there may be written the name of the patient, the room number or other indicia. It will be understood that the name which has been written on the frosted glass portion may be washed or rubbed off, and the name of another patient, or any desired matter, may bewritten thereon.
In Fig. 2 I have shown a modification 'of this device wherein the medicine receptacle 8 is shown in the center of the cover and the frosted portions' on each side.
. Fig. 3 shows one large receptacle and one large frostedportion.
The device is made as shown in Fig. 5, circular in form with a groove on the under-side to coact with the top of a glass.
What I claim is:
LA medicine glass cover comprising a disc having a depending rim, part of the top portion of said disc carrying a depression therein forming a container for medicine, the wall of said depression adjacent said rim forming with the rim a groove adapted to receive the upper edge of a medicine glass and facilitate seating of said cover thereon and the undepressed portion of said disc providing means for the application of suitable identifying indicia.
2. A medicine glass covercomprising a glass 35 disc having a depending rim, part of the top. portion of said disc carrying a depression therein forming a container for medicine, the wall of the rim a groove adapted to receive the upper 0 edge of a medicine glass and facilitate seating of said cover thereon and the undepressed portion of said disc being formed of frosted glass to provide means for the application of suitable identifying indicia.
3. A medicine glass cover comprising a disc having a depending rim, the top portion of said disc on the opposite sides thereof carrying depressions forming containers for medicine, the walls of said depressions adjacent said rim forming with the rim a groove adapted to receive the upper edge of a medicine glass and facilitate seating of said cover thereon and the portion of said disc intermediate said depressions providing means for the application of suitable identifying indicia.
