Title: Section 442.2 - Accounting entity


442.2 Accounting entity. (1110) A fundamental reporting concept is that of the accounting entity or unit. For reporting purposes, the hospital is presumed to be an entity capable of buying, selling and taking other economic actions which are to be accounted for separately from the personal affairs of those responsible for the hospital's administration. The hospital itself is the primary unit for which the accounting records are maintained. However, most departments of the hospital usually assume sufficient importance to require separate treatment as subordinate entities or units of accountability for planning and control purposes.
