When NPPs are working from protocols, it is particularly important that patients
be given specific instructions about when to be rechecked. Because there is so
much delegated medical judgment involved, it is important to ensure that the
patient has received all the necessary and appropriate care:
1. Return to the clinic if not improved in three days or if fever continues this
2. Return to the clinic in two weeks for recheck.
3. Return to the clinic immediately or go to the emergency room if you develop
respiratory distress, rash, or fever greater than 102
