sexual assault nurse examiner
- 0Aug 28, '06 by gonzo1recently got brochure for SANE 5 day course. Where and to what extent might I use this education for my benefit and my patients benefit. Working in an ER I do have to do the assault cases occasionally when they come in. Fortunately not a lot of them, although one day a couple of weeks ago we did like 7 in one day.

it came in the mail, I read it and found it interesting although I had
never thought about this line of nursing before. I am always open to
any education that will help us in the ER.

All the sexual assaults in the area that don't need to go to the hospital come to our facility where they meet with a counselor and are given an exan by an NP with forensic training. If the victim has to go the hospital, the nurse and counselor go to the hospital to see/examine the victim.
