Down syndrome Information Sheet

pregnancyOhio Revised Code (ORC) 3701.69 requires the Ohio Department of Health to develop a Down syndrome information sheet to be available on the department’s website.  The information sheet is to be given to patients who have a test result indicating Down syndrome, or a prenatal or postnatal diagnosis of Down syndrome.  Physicians, certified nurse-midwives, genetic counselors, hospitals, and licensed maternity units, newborn care nurseries, maternity homes and freestanding birthing centers are required to use the information sheet.
