MHTC: providing safety for newborns with new Critical Congenital Heart Defect screening

March 24, 2014

Any parent who has ever had a baby with health issues knows testing newborns goes well beyond counting fingers and toes. The State of Oklahoma understands this problem. Memorial Hospital of Texas County and all hospitals statewide will be performing a Critical Congenital Heart Defect screening on all Oklahoma newborns.
OB Manager Kim Wadley, RN, said the State of Oklahoma passed a bill nearly a year ago that will be implemented throughout the state no later than May. Wadley said the Critical Congenital Heart Defect screening will join the newborn screening (formerly known as the PKU) and a hearing screening.
