A sexual assault is a devastating trauma to victims both physically and emotionally. Victims of sexual assault deserve prompt and comprehensive care in medical facilities. Victims should receive medical care for the evaluations and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancy concerns. Victims should be offered options of care and reporting options when requesting care from medical facilities. 

What is a SANE?
A Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) is a registered nurse who has advanced education and clinical preparation in forensic examination of sexual assault victims. SANE programs make a profound difference in the quality of care provided to sexual assault victims. SANEs offer victims prompt, compassionate care and comprehensive forensic evidence collection. In addition to helping preserve the victims dignity and reduce trauma, SANE programs enhance evidence collection for more effective investigations and better prosecutions. 

DVS hosts SANE Adult/Adolescent, SANE Pediatric, and SANE Simulations labs annually.
