Be Prepared for Your Survey
Minnesota assisted living laws require that the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) survey licensed assisted living providers at least once every two years. For providers who converted from a home care license, this two year period begins on August 1, 2021. Provisional license applicants will have an initial full survey within one year of notifying MDH that they are providing services to a resident.
To prepare for a survey, providers can use the forms on these pages. These are the same forms MDH staff use when conducting a survey. Reviewing the forms will help providers and their staff understand what MDH will look at when they visit.
Use the forms to:
- Understand the requirements of assisted living statutes
- Conduct self-audits
- Be ready for an MDH survey
Assisted living statutes are included throughout the forms to help providers understand state requirements.
