Communicating with the Primary

Care Physician



The primary care provider is to be notified of the results of the newborn hearing screening.

The birth facility must notify the primary care provider via newborn summary, discharge summary sheet, letter or other specific written means that the newborn passed, did not pass or missed the hearing screening, that the screening results were incomplete, or that a repeat screening or referral for diagnostic audiologic evaluation by an audiologist is needed.
