Q&A: Reporting Clinical Privileges Actions

  1. A health care entity took a clinical privileges action against a practitioner, but a court issued an injunction against the clinical privileges action before it was implemented. Should the action be reported to the NPDB?

    No. An adverse action enjoined prior to implementation should not be reported. Clinical privileges actions must be reported only if they are in effect for more than 30 days. However, if the action has been in effect for more than 30 days and is then enjoined, the action should be reported as an Initial Report and the injunction should be reported separately as a Revision-to-Action Report.
