State Hospital Risks Losing Funding

SALEM, OR -- The Oregon State Hospital risks losing significant federal funding if it doesn’t correct deficiencies uncovered in a recent investigation. According to the Oregon Health Authority, the investigation began when a patient took off during a community outing last year. But, officials say, they expanded the scope of the inquiry after federal investigators found additional deficiencies at the Junction City campus.

They cited issues ranging from a lack of daily on-site administrator management to other episodes when staff lost visual contact with patients on outings. The State Hospital has 10 days to submit a plan of corrective action.
