BEND, OR -- Out of what is being called an "abundance of caution," St. Charles Medical Center in Bend is beefing up security Thursday in response to a specific set of threats made nearly a month ago by an inebriated Emergency Room patient. 

 

St. Charles House Supervisor Samantha Saddleman confirms there is an increased security presence, but tells KBND News they don’t believe the person who made the threats poses an actual risk to the hospital. Saddleman would not comment on specifics of the threats, but says the patient mentioned they would take place on March 8.
 
Bend Police Lt. Clint Burleigh tells KBND there are no plans to have more than the usual number of officers at the hospital or on patrol.
