Description

Sexual assault nurse examinations are important in responding to sexual assaults — both in treating victims and in collecting forensic evidence. The presence of genital injury, as documented in an examination. can be a factor in the prosecution of a sexual assault case. This article reports results from a study of the relationship between a patient’s condition at the time of assault and the time elapsed between the assault and its report and the presence or absence of genital injury. The study also examined the effect of the presence of genital injury on legal case resolutions and assembled descriptive data on a broad sample of cases handled under the Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) protocol.
