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
  • providing courtroom testimony when needed

The sexual assault forensic exam is conducted using a kit provided to the health care provider by the Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBI). The cost of the exam conducted using this kit is free to you. The county where the assault occurred is responsible for the costs of the exam. Health care providers may take steps to protect your privacy and identity when billing the county for the exam, although there is no guarantee. If you have concerns about this process, you should discuss them with the health care provider or a sexual assault advocate.

It is important to know that you may be responsible for healthcare costs such as medication or treatment for injuries that are not covered under the sexual assault forensic examination process. In certain circumstances, you may be eligible for crime victims’ compensation to help recover those medical costs and other expenses.

You do not have to report the sexual assault to law enforcement to get a sexual assault forensic exam. The hospital should not contact law enforcement without your written permission and consent. However, health care providers are still required to comply with mandatory reporting requirements. This means that health care providers must report child abuse, abuse of vulnerable adults, and certain wounds regardless of whether you give consent or not.

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.
