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.
