Manhattan Psychiatric Center: Selected Financial Management Practices

We examined selected financial management practices at Manhattan Psychiatric Center. We found that, contrary to required procedures, some employees did not charge leave accruals when they arrived late to work and did not record the time when they left work. We also found that some equipment was not placed under inventory control, some inventory records were incomplete, and identification tags were not affixed to all items. We further found that improvements can be made in certain Center procedures for ensuring that a fair share of the hospitalization costs are paid by patients who can afford such payments.
