§1233. Blood specimens accompanied by information blank; report

Blood specimens sent to a laboratory in compliance with section 1231 shall be accompanied by an information blank which shall contain the initials of the person whose blood is submitted or a number or other suitable means of identification, and the word "Prenatal" to indicate the purpose of the examination.

If the person in question is found to be infected with syphilis, the physician in charge shall make a report to the Bureau of Health on a regular blank, supplied by the bureau for the reporting of venereal diseases, adding thereto the word "Prenatal" in addition to such other information as may be indicated on said blanks.

Such reports shall be kept in a special file at the bureau and shall not be considered a public record. Such reports may be produced in any court procedure where they may be material and relevant on an order of the justice presiding.
