This is a new policy which will support staff with taking an Individual’s body temperature. It gives guidance on what is a normal and abnormal temperature, and highlights the procedure to follow if a fever is suspected. A form is available for staff to record results of the procedure. Although the checking of body temperatures is considered to be a delegated nursing activity, the checking of temperatures may be required by care staff during the COVID-19 outbreak.
This policy outlines the DSE process to ensure the health and safety of all workers that use DSE applications. It has been reviewed with no significant changes and references checked and updated.
