About the Data
About Newborn Hearing Screening Data
All babies are tested for signs of some possible health concerns. These tests are called screenings. Your baby will have a test at the hospital to check for concerns with his or her hearing. A special machine shows if your baby responds to sounds. The test is simple and does not hurt. You will get the results before you leave the hospital.
