Q&A: Reporting Clinical Privileges Actions

  1. A hospital automatically revoked a physician's clinical privileges when the physician lost her license. Should this action be reported?

    No. Administrative actions that do not involve a professional review action should not be reported to the NPDB. The revocation of clinical privileges is automatic because the practitioner no longer holds a license. Regardless of the reason for the State medical board's licensure action, the hospital's revocation of privileges was not the result of a professional review action. Therefore, the hospital's action should not be reported to the NPDB.
