Creedmoor Psychiatric Center: Financial Management Practices

We identified numerous weaknesses in the financial management practices of Creedmoor Psychiatric Center, including instances in which overtime was overpaid, payroll changes were not approved or documented, competitive quotes were not obtained before purchases were made, and transactions in patientsí accounts were not approved or documented. As a result of these weaknesses, there was increased risk that Center resources were not expended in the most economical manner and patientsí funds were not protected against misuse.
