Q&A: Queries

  1. A hospital is in bankruptcy. Is it still required to query the NPDB?

    If a hospital has ongoing business and is functioning as a hospital while concluding its liquidation, even as a debtor-in-possession, it must continue to query the NPDB. If the hospital is in liquidation solely for the purpose of a sale of assets, and there is no ongoing business as a hospital, there is no reason to query the NPDB.
