|Makeshift IV Pole|
When traveling, we often use an old-fashioned ironing board for an IV pole. Turn the padded side next to the wall, hang the bag from the ironing board leg, and attach a pump clamp to the lower part of the leg. You can wedge the ironing board between the bed and wall or the nightstand and wall for support. You can also open the legs a bit for support and to lower the height. Lots of hotels now have ironing boards in each room.
