Q&A: Reporting Clinical Privileges Actions

  1. A physician holds clinical privileges at First Hospital and Second Hospital. First Hospital suspends the physician's privileges. Second Hospital's rules provide that a suspension or termination of privileges at another hospital requires suspension or termination at Second Hospital. Consequently, once it learns of First Hospital's suspension of the physician's clinical privileges, Second Hospital also suspends the physician's privileges. Should Second Hospital report its action to the NPDB?

    No. Second Hospital's suspension of the physician is an administrative action that does not involve a professional review action and, therefore, should not be reported.
