Current Bill Summary

HCS/SB 1244 - This act allows the continuation of a newborn hearing screening from one facility to the next. Currently, Section 191.925, RSMo, requires health care facilities to perform hearing screenings on newborns prior to discharging them. This act requires the continuation and completion of a hearing screening at a different facility if the newborn is transferred. The transferring facility must notify the receiving facility of the need for completion of the screening.

This act is identical to HB 1548 (2002).
