State board suspends Legacy Emanuel's ER manager

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The emergency room manager at a Portland hospital had his nursing license suspended for 90 days after a state board said he failed to thoroughly investigate allegations involving a nurse accused of sexually abusing 10 women.

The Oregon State Board of Nursing also ordered Edward Yoder to complete courses on sexual assault, discipline and professional accountability.

The Oregonian newspaper reports ( ) the action didn't go as far as the board's initial proposal that Yoder's nursing license be revoked for his handling of complaints about Jeffrey McAllister, who was fired from his job at Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in April 2013.

McAllister has pleaded not guilty to criminal charges and remains in custody awaiting trial.
