Recommendations For Oregon State Hospital

(Salem, OR) -- A court-ordered expert is issuing her recommendations for capacity challenges at the Oregon State Hospital. Dr. Debra Pinals has issued her second report on the facility. It calls for evaluations of people when they're in jail to determine whether they've become fit for trial and don't need admission to the state hospital. Counties should increase treatment beds for people who don't need hospital level care. And, she says there needs to be better sharing of data to determine how many patients are waiting for admission and discharge.
