Q&A: Reporting Civil Judgments

  1. A nurse practitioner was involved in an automobile accident with a delivery van before arriving at the local health clinic where she worked. The nurse practitioner was found liable for damages in a civil lawsuit. Is the judgment against the nurse practitioner reportable to the NPDB?

    No. This judgment is not reportable because the judgment was due to the automobile accident and was not related to the delivery of a health care item or service.
