RE: Sexually Transmitted Diseases: Forensic Nursing in the ER
Forensic Nursing Chronicles: August 2005

Having worked in a busy city ER, I have seen case after case of STD’s in young females. They come in for treatment, and are on their way. If rape is reported, (as in the case of LM), it can be challenging at best to get a teenager to report it. In the case of LM she changed her mind in the end and stated that it was consensual.
It is a shame that the man will be going around spreading several STD’s to each unsuspecting female. You would think he would be uncomfortable enough to seek treatment, with four STD’s.
Unfortunately LM will be reminded of the rape every time she has a herpes outbreak.
