SANE (sexual assault nurse examiner)

A free sexual assault exam is available within 7 days of an assault at any Jackson County hospital.

At the hospital you will be given a private room after checking in, and a specially trained Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) will be called; a confidential, community-based advocate will also be available.

You can receive a medical screening, STI medications, emergency contraception and evidence collection if you wish, even if you do not want to report to law enforcement. A SANE will discuss options for medical care, reporting and follow up services. You are in complete control of what happens during the exam.

All services are free, and we will not ask for insurance information.
