DEACCESSIONED: While moving from Gaithersburg Warehouse to Stonestreet warehouse in 2009, the condition of the bed was found to be too poor for moving.
Re nurse Sue Mun in CC/OR: the bed was used in the Clinical Center’s Operating Room for oncology studies using radical procedures (before Dr. Rosenberg’s experiments). The bed was crucial to surgical procedures. Curator discovered object in Surplus and acquired it.
