Sexual Assault

Health Care Guidelines for Sexual Assault Patients

I love when things like this show up in my in-box (thanks, Kim!). Virginia has released a new document for healthcare providers: Virginia’s Healthcare Response to Sexual Assault Guidelines for the Acute Care of Adult and Post-Pubertal Adolescent Sexual Assault Patients. I am slowly (sloooowly) working my way through this document, but I am heartened to see such a focused document.

You can download the full report (PDF) and the algorithms compilation (PDF), both free of charge. I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts on the document…
