Metabolic Screening and Hearing Test
and Hearing Test for newborns are available during your baby’s stay in the nursery. These tests are performed 24 hours after birth.
Screening for jaundice is provided for newborns using a bilirubin analyser. It involves placing a simple scanning device lightly over the baby’s forehead. It is painless, and does not require a blood test via heel prick.
A first scan will be done during your baby’s stay with us in the Nursery if he/she appears jaundiced. Otherwise, the screening scan will be done during your baby’s first week visit at Raffles Children’s Centre.
