Health Care Case Study: Financial Statements
This paper is a health care case study of financial statements for Patton-Fuller Community Hospital. This summary is a review of the annual report and financial statements and the differences between the audited and the unaudited statements. The financial ratios are examined to determine if there has been improvement from 2008 to 2009 and to explain the cause. This paper will also summarize the relationship between revenue sources and expenses and explain the effect of revenue sources on financial reporting. The summary will also determine how the hospital’s revenues and expenses are grouped for planning and control. Audited and Unaudited Financial Statements
