Q&A: Reporting Clinical Privileges Actions

  1. Is an agreement not to exercise privileges during an investigation, without actually surrendering the privileges, a resignation while under investigation that is reportable?

    Yes, the agreement not to exercise privileges is reportable if other reportability conditions are met. NPDB regulations state that "acceptance of the surrender of clinical privileges or any restriction of such privileges . . .while under investigation" is reportable. An agreement not to exercise privileges is a restriction of privileges. Any restriction of privileges while under investigation, temporary or otherwise, is considered a resignation and must be reported.
