Oregon Health Authority Issues New Crisis Care Guidelines

The OHA is creating a new crisis care plan for all healthcare entities in the state.  The plan is intended to encourage healthcare entities in Oregon to be more sensitive to race, ethnicity, color, national origin, socio-economic status, disability, age, sexual orientation and gender identity.  It involves the publishing of new crisis care principles to better manage public health crises in the future, with an emphasis on health equity in treatment and the access to healthcare resources.  The new guidance principles are quite different than the ones that have been in place since 2018 which state health officials now say perpetuated discrimination and healthcare inequities.
