Medical Equipment and Supplies


Medical, Pharmacy And Dental

A glass topped display cabinet contains professional treasures. Small tools from dental offices, a gram scale and weights from a former pharmacy workroom, plus a small leather case of medicines, carried by a doctor when he made house calls are all seen. In the area is a 1930 vintage wheel chair, bedside table, enamel wash basin, enema can, bandages and soap plus a newer version of same. Donated by the hospital are memorabilia from Dr. Wright, a long-time Creighton physician, both a white nurse's uniform and a candy-striper's. On the wall above this display hangs two oil paintings of cats and dogs, done by Orin H. Bruce, the founder of Creighton.
