The federal government continually takes measures to minimize medical malpractice, unprofessional behavior and patient abuse. The National Practitioners Data Bank (NPDB), was established by the government to ensure that high-quality care standards are upheld nationwide.
NPDB regulations require this search is performed for newly hired physicians, dentists and other health care practitioners, with an update required every two years. And in some organizations, the search must be repeated every two years for all staff.
Information in the NPDB includes:
- Adverse licensure actions
- Clinical privileges actions
- Professional society membership actions taken against physicians and other health care practitioners
- Other trained medical staff
Search turnaround time: Same day
