  • Repeat newborn exam at the home visit
  • State mandated metabolic lab screening
  • Newborn hearing screening at the four week postpartum check
  • Screening for heart problems, CCHD (Congenital Cardiac Heart Disease)
  • Availability of a “bili” bed/phototherapy, if necessary for newborn jaundice
