A review of reports from the Bergensklinikken shows that the outpatient clinic has incorrectly reported patient days for more than NOK 22 million.
The auditing company EY has investigated the reporting from the clinic where two managers were suspended and subsequently resigned after a settlement, writes Bergens Tidende .
The review shows that lying days have been misreported, partly because those who received treatment have been registered at two departments at the same time and that they have been registered long after they left the clinic. In total, EY believes that this is about over-reporting of 5970 bed days from the beginning of 2015 to August last year. Based on the relevant daily rates, this amounts to NOK 22.2 million.
– I think the numbers were high, very high. What we found is much more extensive than I had anticipated in advance, says CEO Ole Hope in the Bergensklinikken.
When the error reporting is taken into account, the occupancy in the last two years has been less than that stipulated in the contract between Health West and the Mountain Clinics. It may be relevant for Health West to claim compensation, the newspaper writes.
Bergens Tidende has not succeeded in obtaining a comment from the departed clinic manager.
