Quality Assurance

  • Strive for appropriate and timely referrals to successfully meet national EHDI goals of all infants screened no later than 1 month of age; diagnosed no later than 3 months of age and enrolled in early intervention no later than 6 months of age.

  • Make every effort to meet the national benchmark for number of babies missing or referring on their hearing screens. National guidelines suggest referral rates to be less than 4% and missed rates to be less than 1%.

  • Monitor screener competency in administration of screening

  • Monitor screener competency in communicating results to parents

  • Ensure timely documentation of results so children can receive proper follow-up testing
