More than a year after the Unity Center for Behavioral Health promised to follow applicable laws, officials for Multnomah and Washington counties continued to accuse the regional psychiatric facility of violating laws requiring the immediate reporting of potential abuse, deaths and other "critical incidents," according to new records obtained by the Portland Tribune.

Unity Center, set up by local hospitals to divert people in mental crisis from their emergency rooms, has been operated by Legacy Health since January 2017. Legacy vowed reforms after scathing state investigations in 2018.
