Every mother who is taking her child home needs to be advised when to return to the health worker. She may need to return:
- for a follow-up visit in a specific number of days (for example, when it is necessary to check the progress of a child on an antibiotic)
- immediately, if signs appear that suggest the illness is worsening, or
- for the child's next immunization (the next well-child visit).
