Body temperature measurement at the neonatal ward
Parents check their baby's body temperature several times a day.
- Lift the baby's arm carefully and place the thermometer in the armpit.
- Place your supportive hand on the arm and hold the baby.
- After a while a beeping sound is heard and the measurement is done. Lift the baby's arm again and remove the thermometer carefully.
- Disinfect the thermometer before putting it in its case.
