BEMIDJI—Sanford Bemidji Medical Center reported to the state a total of four "adverse health events" last year.

Released last week, an annual Minnesota Department of Health report indicates that, between Oct. 7, 2015 and Oct. 6, 2016, the Bemidji-area hospital had one instance where a surgery or other invasive procedure was performed on the wrong body part, one instance of severe bedsores and two falls. The incorrect surgery and bed sores did not result in death or serious injury, according to the report, but both falls resulted in serious injury.
