Q&A: Reporting Clinical Privileges Actions

  1. A physician is being investigated by a hospital for issues related to professional competence and resigns her clinical privileges. At the time of her resignation she states that she plans to move to a different State. Should the resignation be reported to the NPDB?

    Yes. Since the physician resigned while under investigation for issues related to professional competence, the reason for the practitioner's resignation is irrelevant. The hospital must report this action.
