The CDC recommends that healthcare workers regularly monitor the temperatures of themselves and others during shifts at a COVID-19 unit. Healthcare workers should be alert for symptoms including fever, cough, or shortness of breath. They must establish priorities for testing by quickly screening patients. Without a COVID-19 vaccine, researchers are collecting as much possible data in order to better treat and manage the symptomatic. Gathering data about personnel involves careful screening and monitoring that is made easier by the latest products. No-contact infrared temporal thermometers deliver a quick, accurate temperature reading without skin contact with the patient. No-touch products help healthcare professionals research and give treatment while observing CDC guidelines.
The CDC has instructed the public to not visit healthcare facilities if they have a fever or symptoms of a respiratory infection. Our quick and accurate no-contact thermometer will give a result in three seconds. The CDC reports that a temperature over 100.4°F qualifies as a fever. Since fever is one of the initial symptoms of COVID-19, temperature screening is an effective way to keep healthcare workers safe and provide proper care for those showing signs of illness. Few others have done more during this time of crisis than our healthcare workers. Keeping them safe is the only way to provide the public with healthcare, research, and the latest information concerning COVID-19. The CDC has instructed all staff, including healthcare workers, contractors, students, and volunteers to regularly monitor themselves for fever and other symptoms of COVID-19, as part of a routine practice.
As businesses and schools reopen, the screening of staff and visitors will need to be accurate and efficient. Regular temperature screening is easy and sanitary with our no-touch infrared thermometer.
