State comptroller audit shows NUMC misspent $2M of taxpayer money
A new audit shows financially strapped Nassau University Medical Center misspent $2 million of taxpayer money.
The State comptrollers report is based on the year 2003. The hospital was faulted for lax oversight in awarding contracts, paying for work it never documented and failing to take advantage of a drug discount purchasing plan for patients. The audit also shows the hospital spent $161,000 on upholstery, using just one bidder to purchase the material.
A spokeswoman for the agency that operates NUMC says they have already implemented most of the recommendations given by the comptroller.
