Fever, lethargy, irritability, persistent crying, difficulty breathing or other manifestations of possible severe illness.
4. Diarrhea or stools containing blood or mucus.
5. Vomiting two or more times during the previous 24 hours, unless the vomiting is not caused by infection and the child is not in danger of dehydration.
6. Mouth sores associated with drooling, unless the child’s pediatrician indicates that the child is not infectious.
7. Rash with fever or behavioral change, until the pediatrician has determined the illness is not a communicable disease.
8. Eye infections: when the eye is pink or red with white or yellow eye discharge until examined by the pediatrician and readmission is approved with treatment.
