Gov. Newsom Seeks Surge In Health Care Workers

Press release from California Environmental Protection Agency

Medical doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists, behavioral health scientists, pharmacists, EMTs, medical and administrative assistants, as well as certified nursing assistants are encouraged to step up and meet this moment to help California respond to the outbreak.

Overall, the state had 5,763 COVID-19 cases as of Monday, Newsom said.

NY and California are among the hardest hit states in the U.S. The U.S. has more than 124,000 COVID-19 cases and California trails behind only NY and New Jersey in the number of cases it has so far reported, according to a tracker from researchers at Johns Hopkins University.

As part of the initiative, Newsom signed an executive order to waive health care staffing ratios to give the state more flexibility to address a surge in patients.

The commission, created by healthcare, education and business leaders and co-chaired by UC President Janet Napolitano, wrote in a report a year ago that the state needs to invest $3 billion over the next decade to increase the number of nurses, doctors and in-home caregivers to meet the needs of the state's aging baby boomer population. The state set a goal of adding an additional 10,000 ventilators. The state will help retirees activate their licenses and students obtain licensing. The number of patients requiring intensive care beds rose to 597 from 200, he said. "This urgency is why we are left disappointed that there is still no clear pathway forward for the thousands of nursing students who can no longer move forward with their education".
