Medical Instrument Loans
The Student Body Council has the following medical instruments available for loan in the Lamar Soutter Library at the Library Service Point:
- Tuning Fork
- Blood Pressure Kits
SOM students may borrow up to one of each item at a time (Stethoscope, Otoscope/Ophthalmoscope Set, Tuning Fork). Students must present their student ID with library barcode to the Library Service Point (LSP). Instruments must be returned to the LSP within 24-hours of check-out.
Students are responsible for proper cleaning and care of the devices. All pieces and instructions must be kept together in the casing provided. Instruments must be cleaned before and after use. Alcohol wipes are available at the LSP.
Any loss or damage should be reported to library staff within 24-hours of check-out. Students are responsible for the cost of any damage or replacement. Students will lose borrowing privileges until instruments are returned or replaced.
By borrowing these items from the library, students are agreeing to comply with the library loan policy, and are taking responsibility for any loss/damage to the equipment.
If you have any questions, please contact Vivian Okyere in the Library. For borrowing guidelines please go to the library website at https://library.umassmed.edu/about/policies#collections.
