    taking a rest on IV

    Is this correct ?

    She collapsed at the news so the family members brought her to the hospital to take a rest on IV (intravenous or Ringer)?

    thank you in advance.

    What a strange scenario. Would someone be taken to the hospital because she collapsed after hearing bad news? A hospital is not a place to rest, nor is IV therapy usual in this situation. Insofar as your phrase in bold is concerned, to take a rest on IV doesn't make sense.

    Re: taking a rest on IV

    If a person collapses and requires an IV (of whatever fluid) at the hospital, it is not considered a "rest." It might be better described as "she collapsed at the news so her family rushed her to the hospital where she was administered an IV."
