Oregon Statutes - Chapter 161 - General Provisions - Section 161.400 - Leave of absence; notice to board.

If, at any time after the commitment of a person to a state hospital or a secure intensive community inpatient facility under ORS 161.341 (1), the superintendent of the hospital or the director of the facility is of the opinion that a leave of absence from the hospital or facility would be therapeutic for the person and that such leave would pose no substantial danger to others, the superintendent or director may authorize such leave for up to 48 hours in accordance with rules adopted by the Psychiatric Security Review Board. However, the superintendent or director, before authorizing the leave of absence, shall first notify the board for the purposes of ORS 161.326 (2). [1981 c.711 §12; 2005 c.685 §9]
