Q&A: Reporting Clinical Privileges Actions

  1. A hospital summarily suspended a physician's clinical privileges to allow sufficient time for allegations of gross negligence to be fully investigated. The day after the summary suspension was imposed, the physician requested an educational leave of absence. If the hospital grants the leave of absence, must the summary suspension be reported to the NPDB?

    If the summary suspension is not lifted within 30 days, it must be reported to the NPDB, regardless of when the leave of absence begins or if it ever occurs.
