Oregon State Hospital Security

(Salem, OR) -- Oregon State Hospital is making changes following the escape of an inmate. Christopher Pray was considered an "extremely dangerous" inmate and stole a state van when he escaped. He was captured in Portland. A federal investigator determined there were immediate concerns at the hospital that had to be fixed, or they'd lose Medicare and Medicaid funding. Hospital officials will review the findings and release a corrective action plan early this week to improve security. If the plan is approved, a federal official will conduct a surprise inspection to make sure it's being followed through.
