The Oregon Health Authority shall adopt rules applicable to secure residential treatment homes and facilities as defined in ORS 443.400 (Definitions for ORS 443) that house persons who, as a condition of release under ORS 161.315 (Right of state to obtain mental examination of defendant) to 161.351 (Discharge by board), are required to live in a secure home or facility. The rules must:


Provide minimum security, health and safety standards;


Require the home or facility to have an emergency preparedness plan;


Set minimum training standards for the staff of the home or facility; and


Ensure compliance with any orders of the court or the Psychiatric Security Review Board.


As used in this section, a residential treatment home or facility is “secure” if a resident exit from the home, facility or grounds of the home or facility is restricted through the use of locking devices on resident exit doors, gates or other closures. [2009 c.475 §1; 2011 c.720 §200]
Note: 443.465 (Secure residential treatment homes and facilities) was enacted into law by the Legislative Assembly but was not added to or made a part of ORS chapter 443 or any series therein by legislative action. See Preface to Oregon Revised Statutes for further explanation.
