Abstract

In order to explore who were at high risk of loss to follow-up among newborns who failed initial hearing screening tests prior to hospital discharge in Louisiana between 2007 and 201The study included 15,145 newborns who failed the initial hearing screening tests and loss to follow-up. Unadjusted and adjusted logistic regression models were conducted to evaluate all the risk factors.
