  • Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner/Medical Forensic Examination

    Individuals who are sexually assaulted should undergo a health assessment offered by the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) at Sparrow Hospital or a comparable program as soon as possible.

    A Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner is a registered nurse specially trained to provide care to sexual assault patients. The Nurse Examiner conducts medical forensic examinations and can serve as an expert witness in a court of law.

    If you decide to have a SANE exam, you can choose whether to make a police report. The Sparrow Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Unit will not bill your insurance or your parent's insurance without written permission. If permission to bill an insurance company is not given, the exam is billed to the State of Michigan SAFE Program and is free of charge. SANE is a confidential program.

    The MSU Sexual Assault Program has advocates available to provide support and resources at Sparrow SANE. If you go to Sparrow for a SANE exam, the advocacy team will be paged and an advocate will meet you at the hospital.
