I have a very very old mercury thermometer which takes for ever to reach normal temperature. Are those forehead strip thermometers (as used for babies) reliable and accurate? I was thinking I need a new one and wondering which type to get. Any recommendations?
I've got a mercury one from donkeys years ago and it's spot on. Let's face it, it's all there was once. I remember breaking one on the hospital ward and was ages chasing the little balls of mercury. I had to also put some money in the box in sister's office towards breakages.
