Standards of care are an integral part of providing safe and proper health care to the public. One such standard is the screening of premature infants for retinopathy of prematurity. In a retrospective chart review of 67 infants in an intensive care nursery, a high incidence of non-compliance with the standard was found in infants with over 1251-g birth weight, but that infants under 1251-g birth weight and eligible for participation in an investigation of retinopathy of prematurity had a high degree of compliance with the standard. These findings resulted in the adoption of recommendations to improve compliance with the standard.
