All care is comprehensive, timely and patient centered. Our services are always confidential and free and available 24 hours a day. In most cases, reporting to law enforcement is voluntary.

The nurse examiner will perform the medical/forensic exam in a caring, respectful and supportive manner. An advocate is available to provide other support and information to the patient and their family and friends during the exam process.

After the exam the patient can shower in a private area and will be provided a new change of clothing, if they choose to have their clothing held as evidence.
