Patients that need to be transported to have a test done, require a transport tech or two. Occasionally the patient may have a respirator and two IV poles that also need to be transported necessitating more than one person to assist. If only one transport tech is available, the nurse has to assist in the transport taking her/him away from the other patients.
Secure a secondary IV bag hanger clip onto the bedrail, around the IV pole and back onto the hanger clip (as shown in the images). This allows the IV pole to be towed behind the bed during transport.
A spare IV bag hanger clip.
