SANE/SART

Compassionate. Multi-Disciplinary Team.

SANE/SART (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner/Sexual Assault Response Team) was established to provide an immediate, compassionate, multi-disciplinary team response to victims of sexual assault. This program provides 24-hour on-call services for all sexual assault or abuse victims.

The Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) is composed of dedicated representatives from law enforcement, social services, advocates (YWCA/Center for Safety and Empowerment), nurse examiners, and the office of the District Attorney.

The Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) is a registered nurse, RN, who has advanced education in forensic examination of sexual assault victims. Stormont Vail Emergency Department currently has nine Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners.

Evidence collected is referred to law enforcement, following a strict chain of custody protocol. The collected evidence assists law enforcement with their investigation and is then referred to the District Attorney.

Stormont Vail HealthCare is the only Topeka health care facility to offer this service to the community and surrounding areas.
