SENATOR BONACIC ANNOUNCES NEW LAW TO REQUIRE CONGENITAL HEART DEFECT SCREENINGS FOR NEWBORNS
“With this simple, cost effective screening, doctors will now be able to detect potentially fatal heart defects in newborns and take the necessary steps to ensure they receive proper treatment before problems arise,” said Senator Bonacic. “Giving our children a chance at a healthy life from day one is key. I commend the Governor for signing this legislation into law and for protecting infants across New York State.”
The new law takes effect on January 28, 2014.
