FINDINGS, CONCLUSIONS, AND RECOMMENDATIONS

DISORGANIZED RESIDENT FILES

The Centerís resident files were disorderly and incomplete.

The Center is responsible for maintaining a file on each resident, which should include medical records and other information pertaining to the residentís admission at the Center. During fiscal year 2002 and 2003 the Center housed, on average, 275 residents. These files were disorderly, records were not in any certain order and no filing had been done since January 2003. In addition, there was no filing system in place to track residents with more than one file.

The disorderly files precluded timely audit testing. The lack of an orderly filing system also increases the risk the Centerís staff cannot obtain timely information needed to provide appropriate care and medical treatment to the residents. (Finding 1, page 8)

The Center concurred with our recommendation to establish and implement a filing system to ensure residentís records are adequately maintained.

INADEQUATE CONTROLS OVER CASH RECEIPTS

The Center did not maintain adequate controls over cafeteria cash receipts, which approximate $20,000 a year.

The Center operated a cafeteria in which the cash receipts were deposited in a locally held fund. The cafeteria offered a limited supply of snack foods and was partially staffed with residents from the Center. There were no controls or procedures over the manner in which cash receipts were processed. Sales were recorded daily in a manual logbook and receipts were maintained by the cafeteria supervisor until they were taken to accounting for deposit. There were no controls in place to limit the amount of funds the supervisor could accumulate. In addition, no reconciliation was performed between the sales recorded in the logbook and the subsequent deposit. (Finding 2, page 9)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Center concurred with our recommendation to strengthen controls over cafeteria cash receipts.

OTHER FINDINGS

The other findings related to inadequate segregation of duties in some areas and untimely performance evaluations. We will review progress toward implementing all recommendations in our next audit.

AUDITORSí OPINION

We conducted a compliance audit of the Center as required by the Illinois State Auditing Act. This was a limited scope compliance audit. The Centerís accounting records will be covered by the audit of the entire Department of Human Services. Financial statements for the Department will be presented in that report.
