Taking the Child’s Temperature
- Take the child’s temperature with the Temporal Scanner, located in the pink basket above the cupboard above the receptionist’s desk in the office, to determine the magnitude of the child’s fever. Follow directions in the Temporal Scanner booklet.
- If the fever is above 100°F, notify parents, as child needs to go home.
- Make child comfortable… remove clothes if hot or cover with blankets if child has chills.
- Encourage water unless child is nauseated.
