Vera Temp Thermometer! Totally awesome...

The Vera Temp Thermometer is a wonderful and ingenious idea. As a home health and hospice nurse, my biggest worries would be weather or not my instruments that I used had caused some kind cross contamination, even though I would clean them after each patient, and use the plastic probe covers over them and so forth, I still worried. I had the opportunity to check out the Vera Temp Thermometer. I compared it to my digital thermometer, and both were accurate! They both gave me the same reading. As to say, I am pretty impressed with the accuracy that it has shown so far, and I didn't just check it on me, I ran it through my entire family. So it is very accurate.

The VeraTemp measures a person's temperature by the energy emitted without touching them, meaning there is no contact to the person what so ever. So it would be great for any hospital, emergency medical service, long term care facilities, home health and hospice services, school environments, and other public settings.

How it works:
The nurse or operator holds the VeraTemp thermometer 2-3 inches away from the patient or person's forehead. We then press the scan button which activates the radiation sensor, the measurement is instantly taken, and the reading is produced. There are several features and benefits of using the VeraTemp which are:
  • Take temperatures instantly and efficiently without the fear of cross contamination.
  • Stores to memory the last 32 readings are automatically.
  • Instantly takes a reading with the press of a button.
  • Hygienic and easy to use – simply clean device with an alcohol wipe.
  • Eco-friendly device reduces a facility’s carbon footprint and the expenses associated with wasteful probe covers.
  • Each VeraTemp+ comes equipped with a medical grade silicon protective cover and lanyard.
