Hospitals: For public hospitals, Minnesota requires mixed retention periods for varying types of records. Ultimately, hospitals must keep patient records for seven (7) years, or in the case of minors, for seven (7) years after the patient turns 18.
Physicians: Minnesota offers limited retention guidance for private practices. Consult LINK for more on what to do when your state offers limited legal guidelines for records retention policy or contact Cariend to learn more about retention policy in Minnesota.
