Abstract

A hospital bed (10) that is convertible to a chair for patient egress from the foot end of the bed. A patient support platform (18) has se- rially hinged, normally hor- izontal head (28), seat (30), thigh (32) and foot (34) pan- els. To convert the horizon- tal bed to the chair configura- tion, the patient support plat- form (18) in the lowermost vertical position is translated longitudinally toward the foot end of the bed (10). The head panel (28) is pivoted upwardly and the foot panel (34) piv- ots downwardly to a gener- ally vertical attitude. The foot panel (34) includes a collaps- ing portion (46) which tele- scopes into a pivoting portion (44) to thereby avoid interfer- ence with the floor as the foot panel (34) is pivoted to a verti- cal attitude. When converted to the chair configuration, an area is vacated at the foot end of the bed to provide a space for docking a wheelchair or other ambulatory assisting device. The patient's feet rest directly on the floor in the chair configuration in that the foot panel collapses into itself as it pivots downwardly rather than pivoting along a second axis to underlie the patient's feet.
