Rockland Psychiatric Center: Internal Controls Over Overtime Practices (Follow-Up Report)

Rockland Psychiatric Center provides community-and hospital-based mental health services. In audit 2006-S-103, we examined the controls over overtime at the Center and identified a number of weaknesses. For example, payments were sometimes made for overtime that was not properly documented and employees sometimes worked excessive stretches of overtime without the minimum eight-hour break required by Center policy. We recommended that a number of improvements be made in the Centerís controls over overtime, and when we followed up on these matters with Center officials, we found that they had made progress in implementing our recommendations.
