 1. Field of the Invention
 This invention is related to a hygienic and convenient improvement in the method of obtaining urine samples from women requiring urine tests in hospitals using a disposable cup and in particular to one which enables women who are elderly to be seated on a toilet while obtaining said urine sample by using a disposable urine sample cup holder which can be affixed to a toilet bowl seat.
 2. Description of the Prior Art
 Urine samples from women are often required in hospitals. The conventional method to obtain a urine sample is for a woman to urinate in a disosable cup. However, this method is often unhygienic and very awkward, particularly for elderly women, as this method does not enable them to sit while urinating, and may cause difficulty in urinating for women who find it difficult to squat and urinate, and furthermore is unhygienic, particularly where a woman is inaccurate in placing the cup in a correct position to receive her urine.
 Therefore, it is an object of the present invention to provide a disposable female urine sample cup holder for hospital use which can be affixed to a toilet bowl seat and therefore will enable women to sit on the toilet bowl and urinate easily into a disposable cup, thereby obviating and mitigating the above-mentioned drawbacks.
 This invention is related to a disposable female urine sample cup holder for hospital use.
 It is the primary object of the present invention to provide a disposable female urine sample cup holder for hospital use which can be affixed to a toilet seat, thereby enabling women who must obtain urine samples to sit on a toilet and urinate easily into the disposable cup.
 According to a referred embodiment of the present invention, a disposable female urine sample cup holder comprises a disposable cup, a disposable cup holder for containing the disposable cup, the disposable cup holder having a protruding tongue which is fitted into a rectangular slot with a lug of a handle to keep the cup holder in place and to enable the disposable cup holder's adjustment according to the user's requirements for urinating distance. The handle extends upwardly from the disposable cup holder to connect to a metal sheath, which is folded inwardly on two sides to enclose the end of the handle and which is then bent into a U-shaped slot for mounting on a toilet bowl seat.
 The foregoing object and summary provide only a brief introduction to the present invention. To fully appreciate these and other objects of the present invention as well as the invention itself, all of which will become apparent to those skilled in the art, the following detailed description of the invention and the claims should be read in conjunction with the accompanying drawings. Throughout the specification and drawings identical reference numerals refer to identical or similar parts.
 Many other advantages and features of the present invention will become manifest to those versed in the art upon making reference to the detailed description and the accompanying sheets of drawings in which a preferred structural embodiment incorporating the principles of the present invention is shown by way of illustrative example.
