Remember when you were bad in 2nd grade and your teacher told you it was going on your permanent report card? Well, your National Practitioner Data Bank profile is that permanent report card for health care professionals. Most any malpractice settlement or judgment, hospital privilege loss, being terminated by a managed care company, being disciplined by your state board; all of these and more can be found in your NPDB profile. Request a copy via going on line to the NPDB and initiate a “self-query”. It is only a few dollars. Don’t you want to know what every inquiring entity knows about you? You also want to make sure it is accurate. While patients and plaintiff attorneys cannot access this, a hospital where you applied for privileges, a medical group doing a due diligence prior to hiring you or a managed care company, can certainly access it. Also be warned that if you settle a case, your state board will have access to this information if they want to investigate the matter. Forewarned is forearmed! - Larry Kobak, Esq.
