Sound like you were a Cal resident working for a Cal employer at the time of the injury, so jurisdiction would likely be in California's WC system (not Oregon's). You might consider posting this question in the CA forum, but really you should call a CA WC attorney.
The first aid kit at my work was under equipped and did not contain antibiotic ointment or conforming gauze rolls. I was not able to immediately treat my wounds and had to leave work and purchase my own first aid supplies.

Potentially. Employees in Oregon have a right to their employee files (though such a file may or may not include the specific records you are looking for), and if there is a lawsuit they could be demanded in discovery.
