Forensic nurses and assault patients


Forensic nursing is gaining great scope in today’s healthcare. Assault, abuse, and neglect cases have risen over the years, and care for these types of patients is intense and extreme. These patients need in depth physical and emotional assessments completed while maintaining all evidence that may be needed by law enforcement personnel. It is a very tedious task for nurses to complete a thorough exam for assaulted patients, especially sexually assaulted patients. Thus it becomes vital that specialty nurses work within these healthcare environments where these patients are initially likely to be seen, for example, the ER. I feel that all ERs should have available a forensic nursing team that addresses these special cases.
