Oregon Statutes - Chapter 109 - Parent and Child Rights and Relationships - Section 109.680 - Disclosure without minorís consent; civil immunity.

A physician, psychologist, nurse practitioner, licensed clinical social worker or community mental health and developmental disabilities program described in ORS 109.675 may advise the parent or parents or legal guardian of any minor described in ORS 109.675 of the diagnosis or treatment whenever the disclosure is clinically appropriate and will serve the best interests of the minorís treatment because the minorís condition has deteriorated or the risk of a suicide attempt has become such that inpatient treatment is necessary, or the minorís condition requires detoxification in a residential or acute care facility. If such disclosure is made, the physician, psychologist, nurse practitioner, licensed clinical social worker or community mental health and developmental disabilities program shall not be subject to any civil liability for advising the parent, parents or legal guardian without the consent of the minor. [1985 c.525 §2; 1989 c.721 §48]
