Link: https://olis.oregonlegislature.gov/liz/2024R1/Measures/Overview/HB4089

This bill regards health care in the state of Oregon, particularly focusing on the work schedules of health care employees and the financial transparency and reporting of hospitals. The bill requires these institutions to maintain and adhere to predictive scheduling of on-call shifts and to report quarterly their financial data to Oregon Health Authority (OHA), including the hospital’s daily cash on hand. This financial data as well the specifics about employees’ work schedules must also be made publicly available. The bill empowers the OHA to impose penalties on hospitals that fail to comply with these new legal requirements. The bill seeks to enhance transparency in hospital’s operations, management, and finances. Overtime rules for nursing staff are outlined clearly to mitigate their overwork. The bill also contains provisions addressing the handling of complaints as well as some specifications related to financial transactions which hospitals must adhere to. Lastly, the bill calls for the Oregon Health Authority to adopt rules necessary to ensure compliance with these new measures.
