Audit finds overpayments to Los Angeles County hospital, health workers
May 03, 2010
A Los Angeles County audit has found that Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center and the county Department of Health Services overpaid workers tens of thousands of dollars in bonuses, sick pay, disability pay, and overtime, and need to do more to monitor over- and underpayments. The audit, which began two years ago and was released last week, found $85,000 in overpayments. Auditors recommended that hospital and health-services officials improve how they monitor employee compensation and time cards.
