Q&A: Reporting Civil Judgments

  1. In a state civil case, the court fined a professional staffing agency that supplied nurses, therapists, and other licensed health care personnel to hospitals and home health agencies $150,000 and required the agency to pay $325,000 in restitution to a group of local providers for overcharges during a 4-year period. Is this fine reportable to the NPDB?

    The civil judgment against the staffing agency relates to the delivery of health care items or services and is reportable if the staffing agency meets the definition of a health care provider or supplier.
