Project Instructions
This collection contains patient records from various state-run hospitals and schools located in Minnesota. You may encounter patients from states other than Minnesota and will need to enter the state in the Residence State field. The Residence State field should only be keyed if it is a state other than Minnesota. Residence counties may appear at the top of an image. If the county listed at the top of the image is not specifially stated as the location of the hospital, it should be keyed as the residence county to all records on the image.

Many records will not record the patient's birth date; in these cases enter 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 occur on images where the records are organized by date rather than by patient.

When you encounter an image with patient information but no names are listed, the image should be classified as a Hospital Record Page 2 form type.

Key any record that shows a patients name.
