Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners

SANE stands for Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner. A SANE is a specially trained registered nurse who provides comprehensive care to victims of sexual assault. The duties of a SANE include:

  • taking a history from the victim for the purpose of diagnosis and treatment of health care concerns;
  • conducting a complete physical assessment;
  • performing a thorough genital exam;
  • collecting and documenting any forensic evidence;
  • providing appropriate information and referrals;
  • working with the victim advocate to assure coordinated service; and
  • providing courtroom testimony when needed.

Services from a SANE are available in Kansas at the locations on the map below. However, any emergency room in Kansas can provide emergency medical services or treatment. Unfortunately, many of these locations on the map below do not have adequate resources to provide SANE services 24 hours a day or 7 days a week. Additionally, not all SANEs are trained to examine children. Regardless, an advocate can assist victims with this entire process. To find an advocate, contact the local program.
