Retired Oregon doctors, nurses help in COVID-19 response

PORTLAND – The Oregon Medical Board has taken action to allow retired doctors and nurses to return to work and treat patients during the coronavirus response.

Governor Kate Brown said the board issued an emergency rule.

“That includes clearing the way for retired physicians and physicians assistants to work in more than a volunteer capacity,” Brown said.

It also allows doctors with administrative licenses to immediately change them back to active, so they can return to work.  The actions make around 3,500 doctors and nurses available to work if they want to.
