St. Charles Madras lockdown reinstated

MADRAS, Oregon St. Charles Madras reinstated a full lockdown of the facility at about 1:15 p.m. after reports that the escaped convict from Deer Ridge Correctional Institution may have been spotted on the hospital property.


The lockdown means that patients who were scheduled to receive health care procedures at the facility today have been called to reschedule their appointments. Visitors will not be allowed into the facility while the lockdown is underway.

The lockdown will be lifted as soon as law enforcement and hospital officials deem the situation safe for patients, caregivers and families.
