OAR 859-050-0090
Patient/Outpatient Appearing Pro Se


When a patient/outpatient waives the right to be represented by an attorney, the Board will take written or oral testimony and decide whether the patient/outpatient is capable of understanding the proceedings.


After considering evidence about the competency of a patient/outpatient to represent his or her own interests at the hearing, the Board will rule on whether the patient/outpatient will be allowed to represent himself/herself pro se or whether the Board will appoint counsel to represent the patient/outpatient over his or her objection.
