Policy for Instructional Equipment
Academy for Nursing and Health Occupations maintains a system for instructional equipment and supplies as follows:

  1. The Academic Dean annually compares the Department of Education’s suggested lists of equipment to ANHO’s equipment inventory and supply. Clinical experience equipment and supply availability is also considered.

  2. As supplies and equipment are used and new items are needed faculty and staff notify the Director of Operations by e-mail.

  3. The Director of Operations orders any and all necessary equipment and supplies for new programs and on-going programs, as they are used, or deleted equipment for discontinued programs. Ordering will take place weekly so that supplies and equipment are maintained on an on-going basis.

  4. If repairs are necessary, new equipment and supplies are procured to have on hand while repairs are made thus always ensuring materials will be available for faculty and student use.

  5. Emergency purchases of equipment and supplies are procured on a daily basis according to the emergency purchase policy (located within the Fiscal Policies and Procedures). All management personnel are authorized to procure in an emergency situation.

  6. Inventory of all equipment and supplies is taken annually every summer and is completed in one day. (property control procedures – Fiscal Policies and Procedures)

  7. Monetary provisions are reviewed annually and as necessary for the purchase of new and replacement equipment and supplies according to this school’s Small Purchase Policy (included in ANHO’s Fiscal Policy & Procedure).

  8. The Compliance Educator is responsible for maintaining this policy, evaluating it and revising it as necessary. The comptroller is responsible for reconciling inventory for fiscal purposes.
