Pilgrim Psychiatric Center: Selected Financial Management Practices (Follow-Up Report)

Pilgrim Psychiatric Center provides inpatient and outpatient services to adults from Nassau and Suffolk Counties. In audit 2005-S-48, we found that certain improvements were needed in the Centerís controls over patient funds and its pharmacy inventory. We also determined that the Center needed to make greater use of the Stateís procurement credit card for small-dollar purchases. When we followed on these matters with Center officials, we found that they had taken some action to implement our audit recommendations, but additional actions were still needed.
