What are some of the signs of heat stroke involving kids that have been exposed to prolonged heat and high temperatures at a daycare facility?
We frequently see the following:
- Hot to touch
- High temperature
- Loss of balance
- Loss of mobility
- Altered mental state
- Little hazy or foggy
- Very thirsty
- Dry mouth
You want to make sure that the daycare providers, meaning the teachers themselves, have CPR training specifically in heat strokes if they're going to be working at a Texas daycare facility.
For most parts of the year, we have high temperatures in Texas, especially in the summer. And if they're not looking out for the symptoms of heatstroke in children, it can be alarming, and potentially even fatal, if not caught in time.
How Can Heat Stroke Be Avoided?
The daycare facility should pay close attention to the amount of time children are playing outside when temperatures are high as children’s small bodies will reach a high temperature in a shorter time. The children will be so focused in playing with their friends that they may not even realize something is wrong. This is why it’s vitally important for the teachers looking after your children to know the signs of heatstroke. Paying attention to the children is going to make the difference in the child being injured due to the daycare’s negligence.
