Q&A: Reporting Federal or State Health
Care-Related Criminal Convictions

  1. A State court imposed an injunction on a medical equipment supplier to prevent the supplier from selling certain medical devices that may be faulty. The supplier plans to appeal the decision. Should the reporting entity wait until after the appeal to make a determination about submitting a report to the NPDB?

    No. The injunction must be reported to the NPDB within 30 days of the date the court imposes it. If an appeal is filed prior to the submission of the report, the reporter must indicate on the Initial Report that the matter is on appeal. If, after the appeal, the injunction is lifted, the reporting entity must submit a Revision-to-Action Report.
