Critical Access Hospital (CAH) staff can use the Survey Preparation Tool (PDF:78KB/25pgs) to prepare for the Medicare resurvey conducted by the Minnesota Department of Health. It walks staff through the CAH Conditions of Participation in Appendix W to the State Operations Manual, provides tips, and lists additional resources.
