Baxter IV Stands are one of the unsung heroes of the hospital. No one thinks much about them if they’re doing their job correctly. However, if something ever went wrong, it would instantly grind much of the treatment process to a halt. IV stands are used to give medications accurately while freeing nurses up to do other tasks. A useless IV stand is a labor shortage waiting to happen–which is why Baxter puts the top quality effort into their IV stands. Baxter IV stands are built to last!


Baxter’s rolled metal IV stands combine strength, sanitation, and mobility. This creates an IV stand that is light enough to move along with the patient, but sturdy enough to withstand daily use. People aren’t supposed to lean on their IV stands, but patients slip and grab whatever they can. While the Baxter IV is obviously not a crutch, the hard metal design allows it to be durable in an unpredictable environment.

The metal covering is also simple to clean, making it easy for nurses and staff to keep everything sanitized. The sleek metal design with minimal grooves allows for a quick and effective wipe down of the IV stand. No matter what the situation, your Baxter IV stand will be ready to use at a moments notice.

Mobility allows this IV stand to go where your patients go. Contrary to television dramas, you don’t have to sprint down a hallway with an IV stand every day. Nevertheless, Baxter IV stands are excellent for when you do have to move patients. The wide base with multiple, independently moving wheels prevents tip over. The IV stand can stay upright and move easily even if one wheel snags or hits a corner.

Simple Design

Baxter doesn’t overcomplicate the IV stand. It has a wide base for balance and function, and several bags at the top so you can hang multiple IVs. For patients who need multiple medications and/or saline, this spiraled octopus top is a perfect design. It keeps the bags hanging separately while still giving you room to add several others. This helps avoid doubling up on bangs from one arm. It also reduces the odds mixing up medications or disturbing ones in use when changing bags.

Baxter IV stands are a great example of high-quality hospital basics. You need IV stands. Baxter makes a stand that covers all the bases. It’s strong, easy to clean, and easy to move. The design aids the function and supports your support staff with organization and ease of use.
