ORS 441.418
Appeal to Residential Ombudsman and Public Guardianship Advisory Board


(1)

A residential facility as defined in ORS 443.380 (Definitions for ORS 443.380 to 443.394) or a long term care facility that files a complaint against a designee appointed under ORS 441.413 (Appointment of designees) and objects to the action of the Long Term Care Ombudsman in resolving the complaint may appeal the ombudsman’s action to a panel of the Residential Ombudsman and Public Guardianship Advisory Board.

(2)

The board on its own motion may review any action by the ombudsman appealable under this section. The review shall provide an opportunity for written and oral presentation by the residential facility as defined in ORS 443.380 (Definitions for ORS 443.380 to 443.394) or a long term care facility and the ombudsman. The board shall issue its findings and any instructions to the ombudsman in written form consistent with the federal Older Americans Act or other applicable federal law.

(3)

If the board disagrees with the action of the ombudsman, the board may refer the resolution back to the ombudsman with instructions consistent with the federal Older Americans Act or other applicable federal law to conform the ombudsman’s action in the matter to the recommendations of the board.
