Q&A: Reporting Clinical Privileges Actions

  1. After receiving multiple quality of care complaints about a physician, a hospital initiated an investigation. During the investigation, the physician resigned her clinical privileges at the hospital. Since there was no professional review action taken, should a report be submitted to the NPDB?

    Yes. The investigation was triggered by an event involving professional competence and centered on the physician's performance outside the scope of a routine review. Since the physician resigned her clinical privileges while under investigation, a report must be submitted to the NPDB.
