Appeal to Long Term Care Advisory Committee

(1) A long term care facility that files a complaint against a designee appointed under ORS 441.131 (Appointment of designees) and objects to the action of the Long Term Care Ombudsman in resolving the complaint may appeal the ombudsmans action to a panel of the Long Term Care Advisory Committee.

(2) The committee on its own motion may review any action by the ombudsman appealable under this section. The review shall provide an opportunity for written and oral presentation by the long term care facility and the ombudsman. The committee shall issue its findings and any instructions to the ombudsman in written form consistent with the federal Older Americans Act.

(3) If the committee disagrees with the action of the ombudsman, the committee may refer the resolution back to the ombudsman with instructions consistent with the federal Older Americans Act to conform the ombudsmans action in the matter to the recommendations of the committee. [1995 c.789 §1]
