Does any SANE program out there have a risk assessment screening for Hepatitis B? Do you give HBIG or the 1st series of the vaccine if the patient has not be vaccinated? Or do you draw a titer and have them follow up in the clinic?
Most rapes are date rapes or aquaintance rapes. Even though the victim knows the assailant she rarely knows HIV or Hep B/C status or how many sexual partners he's had which will put her at greater risk.
The CDC recommends everyone be vaccinated for Hep B. Especially victims of Sexual Assault. However, HBIG and Hep B series is rarely given in our ER. Just wondering if anyone has a protocol re. this?
