Description
Bedclothes cradle, which consists of two long, cylindrical metal bars (a) and (b), each formed into a closed triangular foot at one end, and attached to a twisted, V-shaped bar at the other, and two curved cylindrical rods (c) and (d) bent to form an open squared arch shape; the ends of (a) and (b) nearest the V-shaped attachment have a round hole, revealing that those components are partially hollow; the V-shaped attachment can be moved back and forth; rods (c) and (d) are solid; the bedclothes cradle is assembled by standing bars (a) and (b) up, with the closed triangular foot acting as the base, on either side of the patient's bed; the V-shaped attachments face inwards, towards the patient; the ends of either rods (c) or (d) would then be inserted into the round opening at the top ends of bars (a) and (b); this places the arch formed by rod (c) or (d) over the patient in a tent-like formation.

The architecture of the hospital was designed with large windows and balconies in order to treat tuberculosis, which at the time was thought to be best treated by fresh air and sunlight. It became part of the Royal Ottawa Hospital in 1969 and was demolished in 2008.
