§ 6506. Verification of Receipt of Newborn Screening Specimens by the Department.
(a) Perinatal licensed health facility staff and-out-of-hospital newborn screening providers shall check the Department Screening Information System (SIS) within 7 days after the date of birth to verify that the newborn screening specimen has been received by the Department. This applies to all infants for whom perinatal licensed health facilities and out-of-hospital newborn screening providers have responsibility for newborn screening pursuant to § 6505(a), (b) and (c). If a specimen has not been received and there is not a copy of the CALIFORNIA NEWBORN SCREENING TEST REQUEST FORM (NBS-TRF) (CDPH-4409) pursuant to § 6501.2 or § 6501.5(a) present in the newborn's medical record, the staff shall enter a missing specimen report into the Screening Information System (SIS), and if the newborn has not been discharged, collect a newborn screening specimen on the CALIFORNIA NEWBORN SCREENING TEST REQUEST FORM (NBS-TRF) (CDPH-4409) pursuant to § 6501.5(a) and § 6504.4(b) within 24 hours. This specimen shall be given to a carrier contracted with the Department or another overnight carrier for transport to the assigned newborn screening laboratory on the same or next business day of the designated carrier.
(b) If a collected specimen has not been received, the staff shall enter a missing specimen report into the SIS.
(c) If a perinatal licensed health facility or a group of perinatal licensed health facilities has an internal computerized system in place to identify specimens received by their designated newborn screening laboratory, and this system has the same criteria to verify receipt of newborn screening specimens as the Department's Screening Information System (SIS) as described in § 6500.71(a) and (b), then their system rather than SIS may be used to verify receipt of their specimens.
