An axillary reading which is a thermometer placed in the armpit. The one that you stick in the ear, 2 seconds later, the temperature is read. It can be done without the patients knowledge if done correctly.

Why would a 0C to 100C thermometer be useless to a doctor examining a patient?

It would not be accurate enough. The clinical thermometer works over a limited range and gives accurate more readings. It would be useful. The temperature of patients rarely drop below freezing and they rarely boil. It would be useless to measure the temperature of food though because food is often cooked above 100C.
