Subpart 1.

[Repealed, L 2005 c 60 s 7]

Subp. 2.

Fetus delivered in moving conveyance.

When a fetus is delivered in a moving conveyance and the fetus is first removed from the conveyance in Minnesota, the place of delivery is the place where the fetus is first removed.

Subp. 3.

Monthly report.

This subpart applies only to an institution that does not report fetal deaths through the centralized electronic system of the state registrar. The person in charge of the institution or that person's authorized designee must submit to the state registrar, on or before the tenth day of each month, a report of all fetal deaths occurring in the institution and all fetal deaths occurring en route to the institution during the previous month. The submitted report must be in a format approved by the state registrar.

Subp. 4.

Correcting reports.

The mother named on the fetal death report or the person who filed the report according to subpart 1 may submit a request to the state registrar to correct information on a fetal death report. Upon receipt of a signed statement identifying the information in error and providing the correct information, the state registrar must correct the fetal death report. If the fetal death report has been destroyed according to subpart 5, the state registrar must notify the person requesting the correction that the record has been destroyed and the correction will not be made.

Subp. 5.

Disposition of reports.

Reports of fetal deaths are statistical reports only. Retention of fetal death reports is governed by the Department of Health's record retention schedule.
