Lost, Stolen or Damaged Equipment Policy

The primary purpose of the equipment of the College is to support the instructional needs of students, faculty and staff within Drexel University’s (DU) College of Nursing & Health Professions. When available, and when it will not impact the College's needs, equipment may be made available to DU faculty or staff outside the College of Nursing & Health Professions to support research, professional presentations, or other official campus functions. It is College's policy that the user and/or the user’s department will be responsible for LOST, STOLEN, or DAMAGED equipment and media that has been scheduled for their use.

Policy

When equipment used on campus or taken off campus, is LOST, STOLEN, or DAMAGED the user and/or user’s department will pay all replacement or repair costs.

Costs

The cost for replacing equipment is:

  • Full replacement value of the equipment if LOST, STOLEN, or DAMAGED beyond repair.
  • Full replacement value of such items as adapters, extension cords, carrying cases and all other accessories.
  • Parts for items that staff is able to repair or parts and labor for those repairs done outside of the College.

It is recommended that you check with your department chairperson to determine if the department is willing to cover any potential costs or whether it will be your responsibility. If you have homeowner’s insurance, that policy may cover part, or all, of the costs.
