Oregon’s state motto, Latin for “She flies with her own wings,” describes a kind of self-reliance unique to Beaver State residents. But every now and then, we have to rely on others, especially in terms of our medical health and care. Oregon has extensive health care laws that can ensure that we are taken care of well and according to own wishes when it comes to our health care. State health statutes allow you to prepare ahead of time to make sure that you make your own decisions on medical care, and can also ensure that all of your medical records are kept private and confidential. This section covers state-specific statutes from the methods for declaring your wishes regarding life-prolonging medical procedures to laws on access to medical records.
