Systems changes resulting from New Mexico's participation in the SUID-CR project
New Mexico's participation in the SUID-CR has allowed for investigation into the content and quality of information collected at the death scene. By comparing information obtained through the existing New Mexico protocol with the SUID-RF information, and by looking at the compliance of DSI SUID-RF use by the DSI, the OMI made the use of the SUID-RF mandatory in all infant deaths.
