Sanford Bemidji reports increase in adverse health events


BEMIDJI—Sanford Bemidji Medical Center last year reported a spike in adverse health events, but hospital officials say the numbers don't necessarily illustrate the quality of treatment here.

The Minnesota Department of Health each year compiles records from every hospital in the state, and shares the findings in its Adverse Health Events report. From October 2014 to October 2015, Sanford Bemidji reported 10 such events—ranging from slips and falls to the death of a newborn during a low-risk pregnancy—after reporting three the year before.
