OAR 859-050-0075
Use of Restraints


The Board prefers to have patients appear at hearings without physical restraints. If, in the judgment of the patient’s physician, the patient might need restraining, the Board prefers to have staff attending the hearing with the patient rather than to use physical restraints. However, the final decision on use of restraints lies with the physician.


Any attorney objecting to the patient appearing with restraints at the hearing may raise the issue and ask for testimony from the physician or request a continuance of that hearing until the patient can appear safely without restraints.
