Here is what $3.1M in incentive pay will buy
Well, not much, it would seem. The Mercury News reports today that federal inspectors have uncovered "dozens" of problems at UC Irvine Medical Center, from sub-par storage of drugs to lost patients' confidential information, to poor oversight in general. So many problems were uncovered, in fact, that UCI MC risks losing millions in federal funding. We don't know how many of the 38 managers that will receive the incentive pay approved yesterday by the Regents are at UCI MC. But we do hope that the Regents will see it fit to rescind any incentives to be paid out to UCI MC managers.
