In 2001, legislation was enacted to require hearing screenings for all newborns prior to discharge from any South Carolina hospital averaging 100 deliveries or more per year. Established under this mandate, First Sound is South Carolina's early hearing detection and intervention program. Since the initiation of the program, 1,333 infants have been identified with confirmed hearing loss and have received intervention. Eight South Carolina hospitals have been selected to participate in a quality improvement program to improve infant hearing screening practices and reduce rates of infants not rescreened.
