Enhanced Penalties for Assaults on Hospital Workers - Oregon House Bill 3161 is live!
HB 3161 would add hospital workers to the list of professions that serve the Oregon public with enhanced penalties for assaults if they are intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly assaulted. Our current supporters include Salem Health, OR ACEP, and St. Charles Health.
Our next step is to request a hearing before the House Committee on Judiciary.
What you can do now:
  • Share this with your colleagues and employers.
  • Write your Oregon Representative, tell them your story, and ask them to support/co-sponsor HB 3161.
  • Consider writing the House Committee on Judiciary committee members and asking for their support.
