What to do if you are Sexually or Physically Assaulted

After an incident of sexual assault or domestic violence, the victim should consider seeking medical attention as soon as possible at the closest emergency room. WU encourages all victims of sexual or physical abuse to seek medical treatment in order to preserve evidence and to obtain an order of protection. In various states in the U.S., evidence may be collected even if you chose not to make a report to law enforcement.

In the chart below, please find the contact information for the hospitals closest to each campus as well as an indication as to whether or not the hospital offers Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner/Forensic Nurse Examiners (SANE/FNE nurse) services.

SANE/FNE nurses are trained medical professionals who are sensitive and specialize in the care of crime victims. SANE/FNE nurses are able to collect forensic evidence from the bodies of victims of sexual and domestic assault. They also routinely work with law enforcement to preserve the evidence and may testify in court. If you have difficulty locating the closest hospital with evidence collecting capabilities, contact 9-1-1 and ask for help in locating a hospital with a SANE or FNE nurse. You may also contact the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 800-656-HOPE (4673) or visit the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network at www.RAINN.org.
