Failure to attend the first newborn health supervision visit is an important problem for the Continuity Care Clinic of Children's Hospital Medical Center of Akron, Ohio.
The goal of this study was to use objective data from the neonatal record to identify newborns at high risk of failure to attend.
Clinical and social risk factors of the mother and newborn were abstracted from the neonatal progress notes of 319 infants.
The relative risk (RR) of nonattendance was calculated for each factor, and rules for predicting failure to attend were evaluated.
The best predictors were multiparous mother (RR=2.4, P=01), no telephone in home (RR=2.6, P=002), and unmarried teenage mother (RR=5.8, P=05).
