Refusal of Screening

It is possible for families to refuse newborn screening, though it is important that education on the importance of screening is emphasized before the decision is made.

If the family still chooses to refuse screening, they need to sign the refusal form, and then you will fax it to the Short-Term Follow Up Staff at 1-319-384-5116 . Health care providers must document parent’s refusal in the medical record.
