8:00 AM - 8:50 AM
MBCC, Breakers E, Level 2

CE Credits: 1

This session will review practice vulnerabilities and common employee-theft warning signs. It will also discuss proper internal controls – such as segregation of duties, having business bank statements mailed to the owner’s home address, and trading check-signing authority for multiple-owner hospitals, to name a few. You will learn how to establish proper internal controls to protect your hospital from being the next victim. Several real life examples will be reviewed that will stress the importance of being proactive – no matter how well you think you know your employees.
