Oregon Asylum - Diane L. The story of Oregon State Hospital (OSH) is similar to that of other large mental hospitals built in the 1800s. OSH remains responsible for all the patients confined by the criminal justice system as guilty except for insanity and those needing to be evaluated to see if they can aid in their own defense. OSH has always been supported by state taxes and ruled by the vagaries of state politics. For the most part, OSH superintendents were appointed and discharged at the whim of elected governors.

Years of insufficient funding caused the hospital to decay into a crumbling, understaffed facility, which was later used as the setting for the 1975 film One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
