Personal Property


OHSU is typically not responsible for the damage or loss of personal property owned by employees, faculty, students, patients, visitors or volunteers. In the event personal property is damaged or lost when OHSU has control and custody of the property or due to the negligence of OHSU, Risk Management may reimburse on a case-by-case basis. In the event of reimbursement, Risk Management will repair or replace the personal property with like quality, subject to Insurance Policy limitations.

If OHSU is deemed responsible, the unit causing the damage or loss may be responsible for the cost to repair or replace the damaged/lost/stolen property.
