Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners


I had the opportunity to attend one of the SANE nurses classes. Benefits of the class include: Power point pictures of assault victim’s torn tissues were shown and explained. Since examination of the labias, hymen, and the vagina is usually done quickly seeing this damage and having the damage explained was very valuable. Digital camera techniques were demonstrated. How to collect specimens to legally use as evidence in court was demonstrated. Crime detectives lectured to relate some of the crime scenes and how to help the crime victim. One of their objectives is to have a woman detective with the woman and to get the SANE caregiver as soon as possible. The new SANE nurse can go with another SANE nurse before she needs to go by herself. I am not sure if males are SANE nurses I think they should be because men also get raped. I did not have any males in my class.
