Provisional consent order issued that is not considered disciplinary action

Portland, Oregon (KOIN) — Salem Health Nurse Those who ignored Oregon’s COVID-19 restrictions on social media last month I have agreed to stop working for my healthcare provider.

According to state records, Ashley Grahms received a provisional consent order for her departure, which came into effect on December 8, 2020. A provisional order by consent is not considered a disciplinary action and is a binding document voluntarily signed by both parties. The order is valid until the board votes to invalidate it.

On November 27, Grames posted a video on TikTok and Facebook, claiming that she still travels frequently and rarely wears a mask. She also said she would give her children a play day.

Following the distribution of the video on social media, Salem Health worked on the video and then took Grames off during the investigation.

“This one careless statement does not reflect Salem Health or the position of a diligent and dedicated caregiver working here,” a spokeswoman for the company told KOIN 6 News last week. “Salem Health believes that we all need to play our part to protect vulnerable people and stop the rapid spread of COVID-19.”

Salem Health did not immediately respond to KOIN6’s request for more information on Gram’s employment status.

This is a developing story.
