Looking for a tool to evaluate your practice’s internal controls, while also promoting effective and efficient business practices? This checklist will serve as a valuable management resource in reducing risk and enhancing profit.
The Internal Controls checklist is a tool to assess and test where your veterinary practice stands with regard to its internal control system. Internal controls are the procedural safeguards that reduce chances of theft and loss. The effective utilization of this checklist helps identify system and protocol weaknesses. As your practice grows and employees flex into new job and task assignments, regular use of this valuable tool will help you redesign and adapt internal controls to improve compliance and promote best practices that function to deter and detect theft, fraud and human error. The checklist should be completed by management; optimally an owner-veterinarian or high-level practice administrator.
