    Mine stayed in until the release paperwork was signed. Yes, they wanted me to get as much as I could by mouth but there is more to the IV pole than just hydration. I just drug mine along with me when walking.

    They left mine in but it wasn't for hydration purposes. It was left in case they needed to administer meds. They wanted me to get as much as I could by mouth.

    I think I had mine in from Mon- Thurs morning and I was released Thurs afternoon. I did, however, have to drink a certain amount of ounces before they would release me.
