Sexual Assault Forensic Nurse Examiners Nurse Team
This program, part of a nation-wide program, provides skilled, compassionate care for victims of sexual assault. Our SAFNET are nurses who have received special education in the care of patients who have been sexually assaulted. These nurses have been taught to do a physical examination that includes the collection of evidence and specimens. They also give medicine as needed and explain the discharge instructions and follow-up plan to the patient and the patient’s family.
If you or someone you know has been sexually assaulted, please visit one of our emergency departments. While you register, the SAFNET on call will be paged, and he or she will meet you in the emergency department. Find a location.
