The Oregon Patient Trust Bond is required by the Department of Human Services. Individuals who are applying for a Nursing Home Facility license are required to show security for the personal funds of residents deposited with the facility. The Patient Trust bond is one way for a licensee to meet this requirement.

The amount of the bond must cover the highest amount of the account holding resident funds during the previous 12 months. Petty cash funds need to be included in the amount.
What is the purpose of the Oregon Patient Trust Bond?
Personal funds of nursing home residents can be held with the facility, at the residents request. The facility must establish and maintain a system that assures a full, complete, and separate accounting of each resident’s personal funds. The Patient Trust bond serves to assure the state that the personal funds of all residents, deposited in the facility, are secured. The bond states that the bondholder will hold any personal funds of each resident safeguard. Each resident’s personal funds will be maintained in writing with records and receipts adequate for audit.
