Project Instructions
This collection contains records from various state hospitals. Included are patient profiles, as well as admission and discharge records.

From these records we are keying the name of the individual that was treated at the hospital, a residence location, admittance date, birth date and place, age, gender, and discharge dates.

A residence city and county should be keyed where available. Only key a residence state if a state is stated and it is something other than Minnesota.

Many records will not record the patient's birth date. When the birth date is not available on the image, key the age of the individual. If the birth date is available, the age should not be keyed.

Discharge dates should only be keyed when no admittance date is available. This will typically only be on images where the records are organized by date rather than by patient.
