We are supposed to do a quick wellness scan upon arrival.

It can be helpful during flu season, rash of unknown origin and to weed out dope and drops.

TMI but I check temps whenever their bm's have that sick/sweet smell of motrin in the morning. If it is low, their eyes are dull and their skin is pale I ask leading questions until the parent generally outs themselves. Dope and drop is immediate termination, here.

Msdunny Thanks for the replies. I read most of them during naptime, and then his mom came for an early pickup right after he got up, so I didn't send home. I mentioned the low temp to mom and she said he always runs low. ??? So how am I supposed to know what a fever consists of?

I am going to take his temperature every morning for a while to get an average and then keep that on record. Has anyone else ever done this?

On another note, does anyone take temps every morning for every child? Kind of a well-child check up every morning?

What type of thermometer are you using?


If hes acting sick then hes too sick to be there, imo.

I dont think Ive ever seen a temperature register this low. Could this be because of having had Tylenol?

springvalley112 I would contact the parents or guardians and have them come and get him and tell them that he is not allowed to come back for 24-48 hours or until his symptoms have went away. It sounds like they gave him tylenol before they dropped him off this morning and it's starting to wear off, if you want to you can even have them get a note from the doctor stating that his symptoms are not contagious. We've had children in our center who have been sick and they drop them off but after nap their temp has went up and when they come to get their child, they claim that they've took them to the doctor and they say it's nothing or they've claimed that they were taking them the following day
