Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner
Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) Programs provide medical/forensic exams for individuals who have been sexually assaulted. SANE services include a physical assessment, emergency contraception, injury documentation, forensic photography, and evidence collection up to five days after the sexual assault. SANE Programs offer medication for sexually transmitted infections (STI) up to 30 days after the assault. Services are available 24 hours a day, provided at no cost, and are confidential. No ID is required. Individuals can receive a SANE exam without filing a police report. Each SANE Program has a designated Coordinator who is active with their community co-responders and are available to assist with problems, questions, or presentations.
