Discussion (AG)

Please Answer the discussion question!!!!

You work as an accountant at a large “not-for-profit- business oriented” hospital.  You report directly to the Chief Accounting Officer.  The hospital’s Chief Compliance Officer just informed the accounting team that a surgeon left behind an instrument in a patient’s body in the course of a surgery.  The hospital’s legal counsel informed the accounting team that the hospital is certain to be sued.  The Hospital’s Board of Directors is very concerned on how this event might affect the hospital’s financial statements.  The Chief Accounting Officer has requested that you write a brief and concise memo (around 250 words) that will be presented to the board on how this incident could affect the financials.

You recall from your student days that contingencies are discussed in Statement of Financial Accounting Standards # 5.  See link http://www.fasb.org/pdf/fas5.pdf

Please present your memo in this discussion forum.
