(KSL News) -- A new study finds doctors and caregivers frequently don't know when to send a sick child home from daycare.

Two thousand parents, doctors, and caregivers surveyed on national guidelines only knew how to manage 60-percent of common symptoms.

This means some children are kept home for harmless conditions, while others are sent to daycare when they're really sick.

Researchers suggest parents become familiar with the national regulations so they can best determine their children's health needs.
