Universal Citation: OR Rev Stat § 125.330 (2019)

(1) Except as provided in subsection (2) of this section, a guardian appointed for a person committed to the legal and physical custody of the Department of Corrections may not exercise those powers specified in ORS 125.315 (1)(a) or (b) while the person remains confined.

(2) A guardian appointed for a person committed to the legal and physical custody of the Department of Corrections may take reasonable care of the person’s clothing, furniture and other personal effects that are not located at the person’s place of confinement.

(3) A guardian appointed for an incarcerated person may exercise those powers specified in ORS 125.315 (1)(c) only to the extent that the exercise of those powers is consistent with the protected person’s status as a confined person and with the powers and duties of the superintendent or other officials of the facility. In no event may a guardian appointed for a person committed to the legal and physical custody of the Department of Corrections exercise more authority over health care decisions than the protected person could exercise given the person’s status as a confined person.
