OAR 943-045-0420
General Policy


The Authority believes every individual is deserving of safe, respectful and dignified treatment provided in a caring environment. To that end, all employees, volunteers, contractors and their employees, as well as visitors shall conduct themselves in such a manner that individuals are free from abuse.


In these rules, the term “abuse” is given a broad definition because of the unique vulnerability of individuals served by the Authority. While some examples are listed later in these rules (including specific conduct listed in ORS 430.735 (Definitions for ORS 430.735 to 430.765)(1)), it must be clearly understood that all possible situations cannot be anticipated and each case must be evaluated based on the particular facts available.
