Back to RoadmapOutpatient Hearing Screen (or Rescreen)

If your baby did not pass the screening in the hospital, they should have helped you reschedule a ‘rescreen’. 

This box (or other paper the hospital gave you) should tell you where to return for your outpatient screen or rescreen. Some hospitals make the appointment before you go home and others have you call a special number. Be sure you have the information you need before you leave so you know when to bring your baby back for this important rescreen.

If you are not sure where to go for your rescreen, call your hospital.
