Yeah, it totally makes sense.   The situation in NY is just insane, and it's only going to get worse.

An unfortunate time but PAs are ready to shine - always have been. Sad that this is what it takes to prove ourselves as worthy independent practitioners.

It’s times like this when people realize that their government can sometimes be the only force strong enough to solve a problem.

Dallas Co judge looking for volunteers. Sent tweet saying that he and the governor are missing out on the highest trained medical providers short of physicians and yet not a word has been uttered about us.

State’s website says that “physician’s assistants” can volunteer. If you can’t get the name right then you probably can’t utilize me correctly either.

There will be lasting ramifications from this national crisis just like 9/11 led to the TSA (and unfortunately the Iraqi war). I hope we capitalize on this for lasting changes to improve health care and the PA role.

Be wary of what you wish for 

The next declaration for New York will be that foreign medical grads who can't get into a US residency program can work as a PA instead.

More government is the answer?

As big or as progressive as say, North Dakota?

Cuomo gets praise (right on, I’m glad he signed that) meanwhile other leaders doing similar are not getting any praise, in fact, some get downright lambasted... I’m just confused by that.

I think the point is that there are legitimate functions of government, and that public health is one of them.

Concur with that assessment.

I don't care.  ANYTHING that moves this field out of the ditch I will support.  Let God and time separate the wheat from the chaff medically speaking going forward.  I will put my money on PA's, hopefully soon to be MCP's (Medical Care Practitioners), anytime.

I applaud Governor Cuomo and the language of this bill which protects PAs from litigation and utilizes them appropriately. A study needs to be done on the effectiveness of PAs who have had their retrictions removed after this crisis is over.

I agree, an unfortunate circumstance given the dire situation, but hopefully can cast light on the effectiveness of PAs in the states that are being allowed to practice autonomously and help push the field towards a better direction!

Pennsylvania 

PA changes so far - PAs don’t need charts signed by DOs (nothing from the allopathic board yet ) 

 

But NPs are now allowed to practice outside of their specialty

The Texas Academy petitioned the governor to allow physicians to supervise more PAs. The idea of eliminating supervision, it seems, never crossed their minds. 

I just want to scream some days.....
