Oregon Bill Would Extend Whistleblower Protection to Non-Nursing Hospital Staff

Currently, Oregon nurses are legally protected against retaliation in hospitals when reporting practices that jeopardize patient health or safety. If it becomes law, Senate bill 237 would extend the same protections to Oregon’s non-nursing hospital staff, including lab and X-ray technicians, certified nursing assistants, licensed practical nurses and others.
