E&Y classified $1.3 million as an audit-related fee for HealthSouth in 2001, which was called pristine audit janitorial inspections.
These “audits” included checking toilets, parking lots, and other parts of HealthSouth facilities for cleanliness (50-point questionnaire).
Fortune said E&Y missed billions in financial fraud, but they were great at finding dust bunnies in their white-glove tests.
