SANE program

November 21, 2011

I just wanted to share that I’m excited to be a part of an evolving area of nursing at the facility I work at. We are researching the start of a sexual assault nurse examiner (SANE) program. The way we process sexual assaults presently is so detrimental to the victim and the evidence. None of nurses have been trained in forensic nursing so we always have to take the kit, and directions into the room with us and read and work as we go. It’s a one on one situation which takes a nurse out of commission making her feel rushed to get the process over with, which is not fair to the victim. The SANE nurse is trained in the collection of forensic evidence, the exam and needed follow up referrals; they’re also trained in the process of judiciary proceedings. It will be a great asset to have a nurse on call to spend the needed time with the patient as well. This training will also help in the collection of data for possible domestic abuse cases.
