MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Starting in April, the Wisconsin Hospital Association will post data that will show expecting parents whether the hospital where they plan to have their baby promptly sends newborn screening samples to the lab for testing.
The hospital group announced its plan Friday.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that newborn screening has been under review since a November investigation by the newspaper found that dozens of Wisconsin hospitals weren't quickly sending samples to the state lab.
The Journal Sentinel began investigating after a baby almost died from a treatable condition. The New London hospital where he was born delayed sending his blood test to the lab.
