Q&A: Reporting State Licensure and Certification Actions

  1. A state agency responsible for licensing skilled nursing facilities suspended a facility's license after substantiating several serious quality of care complaints against the facility. Is this reportable to the NPDB?

    Yes. State licensing and certification authorities must report adverse actions resulting from a formal proceeding, such as revocation or suspension of a license, taken against a health care practitioner, entity, provider, or supplier.
