​​​​​​ [SAFETY EXIT]   [SUBMI​T A REPORT]

 ​​

Victim of Sexual Assault or Rape

Go to a safe p​lace and if you are in immediate danger, call 911.

Get medical attention as soon as possible for potential injuries and for evidence collection. Most hospital emergency rooms conduct sexual assault evidence exams within 72 hours after the assault. You will not be charged for the cost of the evidence exam. You do not need to formally report the incident to obtain medical attention or receive support services.​

Sometimes a person may not remember what happened to them, but is worried they may have been raped or sexually assaulted. Regions Hospital Emergency Center can offer you a sexual assault exam and evidence collection if you believe something happened sexually that you did not agree to.

You should have a sexual assault exam if you believe something happened sexually that you did not agree to. During the exam, you will receive care for both the physical and emotional trauma that happen with a sexual assault. Evidence is collected which may be used by the legal system to investigate and charge someone with the sexual assault.

Some of the evidence from a sexual assault can start to disappear in just hours. Coming to a hospital emergency room as soon as possible is best for your care and to collect evidence. However, the exam can take place up to five days after the assault occurred. Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners are available 24/7.

Try not to wash any evidence away. If possible,

  • Don’t take a bath or shower
  • Don’t eat or drink if there was oral contact
  • Keep on or bring in the clothing you had on at the time of the assault and/or immediately after the assault.
