What exactly do additional medical professionals **do**?

In some of the worst-hit pandemic areas, all doctors whatever the specialty have been called up to treat the ill. In Italy, they have placed psychiatrist on duty in the wards, and not for mental health. I understand a doc is a doc, whatever the specialty, but for say an older psychiatrist, eye surgeon or a dermatologist whose last time dealing with respiratory illnesses and probably are not terribly current on the latest developments, was decades ago as a young Doctor, how would they be best used? Same for retired Doctors.

Some places have called medical students and trainee nurses, the same questions.
