Disciplinary Actions

If misconduct is not related to patient safety or the delivery of a health care item or service, no further professional action is required.

If misconduct is related to patient safety or the delivery of a health care item or service then consideration must be given to initiating an adverse privileging action (if privileged provider),notifying the state licensing board (if not privileged provider), and reporting to the National Practitioner Data Bank.

Disciplinary Actions

DoD requires the Surgeons General to report UCMJ actions, adverse civilian personnel actions, and contract terminations for default of any healthcare provider, supplier or practitioner where the acts or omissions were related to the delivery of a healthcare item or service.

Anyone involved in patient care can be reported to the NPDB; it is not limited to licensed healthcare practitioners (i.e. dental techs, corpsmen can be reported)

disciplinary actions3

Misconduct reports were formally made to the Healthcare Integrity and Protection Data Bank (HIPDB); however, in May 2013, the HIPDB merged with the National Practitioner Data Bank (NPDB). The requirements to report provider misconduct remain in effect.
