Reply To: Thermometers and Temperature Taking Practices
Thanks for doing this! Will you share the results? I am interested to know if people are using the digital infrared no touch thermometers now? I have one myself @ home and this would be so great for kids that are sleeping! Just do not know the validity as compared to other thermometers or research that has been published.

At our hospital we are re-evaluating best practice for temperature taking and thermometers used with pediatric patients. We would like to see what other hospitals are doing, if you could please complete the quick survey below we would greatly appreciate it!
