Subject: new word contest

In a nondialect mode (I suppose), I would like to supplement the other Dennis'

contest with a paltry one of my own. Since people can't smoke at all in

hospitals, the (I assume) nearly cured are also released to the outside for a

smoke. What word (or phrase) would describe asmoker pushing along his or her

own portable IV unit, a sight which my wife and I still find gallows-humorous,

although we have witnessed it many times.
