Megan Latourelle, a registered nurse with Sanford Health, shows Bagley second-grader Tyler LaFontaine how an EKG machine is hooked up — in this case to Toco a stuffed animal, who has a broken arm — to monitor a patient’s heartbeat before sending him in for surgery. Pictured at right is Theda Yoder, also a registered nurse. Friday marked the second Teddy Bear Hospital at Sanford Bemidji Medical Center, when 80 Bagley students came through the medical procedures and to foster understanding with children about the preoperative nursing profession. Children brought their stuffed animals, gave them an imaginary malady, went through stations and their beloved teddy bears received care. Bethany Wesley | Bemidji Pioneer
