Fever: management (green features)
Children with solely green features do not need to be
admitted to hospital.
However, other criteria for
admission may include additional factors:
• social and family circumstances;
anxiety, instinct, or concerns;
contact with serious illness;
recent travel abroad to tropical or subtropical areas, or travel to any
high-risk areas of endemic infectious disease.
If a child is discharged home,
then the parents should be given clear instructions about what to look for and
when to call for medical help.
