Safety and Security

The Security department strives to ensure the safety and security of all patients, visitors and staff in the hospital. Trained officers provide round-the-clock security for the medical center and medical office buildings. If you have questions or concerns about security, please call the operator by dialing 0.

You and your family are encouraged to report any safety concerns you may have regarding your care, treatment or services. You can do so by contacting your nurse or the Quality Resources department at 541-732-5199.

Some patients require isolation to protect them from getting or transmitting an infection. If someone is in isolation, anyone who visits must follow the same precautions as our staff. Your nurse will explain how to comply.

Safety Drills
The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations requires that our staff be well-educated and practiced on safety issues. Our Engineering department regularly conducts fire safety drills and crime prevention programs for staff members. Your nurse will let you know if any alarms you hear indicate an actual emergency.
