Guidelines for the Development of a High Risk Registry Program for Hearing Impairment.
South Carolina Univ., Columbia.
The manual outlines the development of a hospital high risk registry for infants with hearing loss. A program conceptualization lists aspects of program planning, personnel, physical arrangements, financial administration, evaluation planning, records and reports, and coordination with other agencies. A guidelines section suggests a sequence of actions in developing such a program, beginning with knowing the literature. A cost estimate section presents figures for initial organization and annual operating costs based on 1982 estimates for a program at Richland Memorial Hospital in Columbia, South Carolina. Following a list of criteria for placing newborns on the high risk registry for hearing impairments is a sample of a proposal for the implementation of a newborn high risk register for hearing impairment. Sample forms (including information letters to physicians, information for the audiologist, and evaluation plans) are included. (CL)
