management guidelines that absolutely must be adopted by any hospital. This study aims at obtaining
information about the components that contribute to the fluctuations of the current ratio Hospital X between
2000, 2001 and 2002. This study used quantitative and qualitative approaches, with the primary data source

Adiministrasi Finance) and the secondary data source include financial statements. The research shows that
RS X’s current ratio are still in a normal range except in the year of 2001 was below the standard (1.42). The
more sensitive ratio, Acid Test Ratio, is still in normal range in the year of 2000, but in the year of 2001, and
2002, the ratios are in the lowest bend of the normal range. Cash Ratios for many years are also in the lowest
bend except for the year of 2000, Receivable turn over ratios for the last three years go smaller showing that
receivables took longer time to collect, the normal range for receivable turn over is 14 up to 20 days. Inventory

is between 16 up to 21 days. The value of current ratio is got from comparison between current assets and
current liabilities. Nominally, RS X’s current ratio in 2002 is in the state bend, namely, 1.5 – 2.00, in the real
term, the ratio shows on contradictory pictures. The reasons are a) Guaranteed Receivables are valued above
the normal practice (overstated) b) overstated of Non Guaranteed receivables/Personal Receivables.

their current ratio problem. There are several suggestions that the management can adopt, namely controlling
cash outflow and cash inflow, reevaluating receivables policy, reforming the supply of inventories (medicine)
