Secondary to the MDH network security incident, obtaining newborn metabolic screening results has been temporarily altered.
Your office will be contacted regarding abnormal results needing follow-up by a member of the Newborn Metabolic Screening Follow-Up Program. If you have any questions regarding abnormal results, please contact a member of the Follow Up team:
Johnna Watson, RN
LaPortia Barrows, RN
Monique Veney, RN
Specimens should still be sent as usual to the Maryland State Newborn Screening Laboratory. However, an outside laboratory is currently performing the screening for specimens. Results are being sent to the Maryland Laboratory which is then distributing paper copies to the appropriate submitters, as identified on the lab slip.
If your office submitted the baby’s specimen you will receive normal results by mail. If you have questions regarding a specimen submission, please call the Newborn Screening Laboratory at 443-681-3900.
If you are requesting a copy of a newborn screen for a specimen that was not submitted by your office, please send an email to: email@example.com with the following information:
