Birthing Hospital, Facilities & Midwives

Hospitals and birth centers perform hearing screenings on newborns before discharge. If a newborn does not pass the hearing screening, a follow-up screening is performed before discharge or as an outpatient. It is the responsibility of the hospital, birth center, or midwife to have a hearing screening performed on newborns and a follow-up screening performed on newborns that pass the initial hearing screening no later than one month of age.
