§16-4A-4. Notation on birth certificate.
Every physician required to report births and stillbirths,
shall state on each birth certificate or stillbirth certificate,
as the case may be, whether a blood test for syphilis was
performed during such pregnancy upon a specimen of blood taken
from the woman who bore the child for which the birth or
stillbirth certificate is filed.
If such test was made, the physician shall state on the
certificate the name of the test used, the date the test was
performed and the name of the laboratory making the test; if not
made, the physician filing the certificate shall state the reason
or reasons why such test was not performed. In no event shall
the result of the test be stated on the birth or stillbirth
