Laboratory Reports

The Florida Newborn Screening Program released a web application for requesting laboratory results, Florida Newborn Screening Results (FNSR). The FNSR system is designed to provide newborn screening lab reports of babies, and offers an instantaneous 24x7x365 method for receiving Newborn Screening lab reports.  FNSR contains lab reports for 2 years.

Physicians, physician assistants, nurses, audiologists, nutritionists, dieticians, midwives, and speech-language pathologists may request results for specimens older than 2 years old by using the Provider Request Form.

Disorder List

The expanded disorder list contains links to information about each disorder, as well as background information on the panels recommending each disorder.

Hearing Screening

Infants who fail the newborn hearing screening prior to discharge are to be rescreened by 1 month of age.  Infants that fail the outpatient rescreen are to have diagnostic audiological testing before 3 months of age. Infants who are diagnosed with a permanent hearing loss must be referred to Early Steps as soon as possible so that services can start before 6 months of age. Visit the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) page for more information for physicians.
