U.S. children not getting proper preventive care, report finds

A recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report says that millions of U.S. children are not getting optimum healthcare basically because of a lack of follow-up that could prevent serious health problems.

Part of the ritual of a newborn in the hospital is screening for hearing. Only half of those that seem to have an issue get a documented audiology exam. Two to three infants per 1,000 live births are born deaf or hard of hearing . When left undetected, a hearing loss can delay a child’s speech and language development. Approximately 40% of young adults with hearing loss identified during childhood reported experiencing at least one limitation in daily functioning.

Many children don’t get proper dental treatment. In 2009, less than half of children and adolescents had a dental visit in the past year, and approximately 15% of children received sealants or topical fluoride.These low levels of dental use carried through for the next ten years.

This is just a glimpse into the 11 highlighted shortfalls of lack of follow-up in children’s health.
