OAR 309-116-0200
Oregon State Hospital Patients Privacy Rights

Patients of the Oregon State Hospital have the right to a humane physical environment that provides adequate privacy for each patient. Each patient shall be provided living quarters that afford reasonable privacy and security in resting, sleeping, dressing, bathing, personal hygiene, and toileting. For example, all showers and bathrooms in patient rooms shall have shower curtains. These provisions may not be interpreted as requiring individual sleeping quarters or to relieve hospital staff from obligations to perform safety checks. These rights may be limited only by an order written by an OSH License Provider in the State of Oregon based upon a patient’s clinical needs as documented in the patient’s records.
