I am looking for anyone who has refused the newborn screen in TN and what the steps were. I can't find a whole lot of info on anyone refusing it.


I am VERY well educated on the risk and benefits of having this test done. I am a Nsy nurse so I know the risk and benefits. I am planning to have what test I want done completed thru a private lab to where I will pay cash. I just have never had a patient refuse the test and I'm not sure what will happen with the state contacting me if I do just wondering if anyone else has experience with this. The doctor who will be delivering me is okay with me refusing the screening and just having selected test done.


You can private message me if you like. Thanks!
