    Thanks so much for the replies. I too thought it was ridiculous for someone to say that if we didn't have one, we wouldn't even be considered in placing. I didn't think the hunter ring had changed...

    Take her temp.
    Monitor her respiratory rate.
    Any nasal discharge? Color?

    I have recently moved to an area where charging for stall rest is apparently a norm? In my previous 20 years in other parts of the country, there was never an additional charge.
