A mobile support stand for hospital equipment has a plurality of poles projecting upwardly from a wheeled base with IV hangers at the upper ends of the poles. The base has a span sufficient to provide the needed stability against tipping, with legs projecting outwardly from the base with wheels at their free ends for supporting and transporting the stand. At least one of the legs is retractable between a fully extended, operative position and a retracted, non-extended position. A securing mechanism allows the stand to be secured to existing mounting holes on a hospital bed with the retractable leg facing outward, and once the stand is secured to the bed the retractable leg is retracted out of the way so that the floor space taken up by the bed and attached stand is minimized.
