The Sexual Assault Response Team offers individuals who have been subjected to sexual assault (14 years and older) compassionate, confidential and non-judgmental care. It is an all female team of Doctors and nurses that will meet you at the hospital to carry out a health exam and, if you choose to, a Sexual Assault Examination Kit. The health exam covers a physical exam, STD screening, pregnancy prevention and a full discussion on how to protect your health both now and in the future. It can be accessed any time following the assault.
A Sexual Assault Examination kit is used to gather and document physical evidence for the purpose of a police investigation. If you wish to have this kit completed, the SART team will notify the police who will bring the kit to the hospital.
