At the Health Center, a nurse can provide you with primary medical care and support, including:
  • Screening for predatory drugs (up to 96 hours after the incident)
  • Emergency contraception (up to 120 hours after the incident)
  • A check for external and internal injuries
  • Vaginal exams
  • Screening and treatment for sexually transmitted infections (STIs)
  • Pregnancy testing
  • Referrals to hospitals and clinics that provide free or low-cost medical care and anonymous HIV testing
  • Transportation to Bryn Mawr Hospital, where a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) will, with your permission, administer a rape kit.
An exam by a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) at Bryn Mawr Hospital is admissible in court as evidence and thus preserves your future legal options:
  • An examination by Haverford College Health Services is not admissible in court as evidence.
  • Bryn Mawr Hospital is required by law to notify the police that a sexual assault occurred, and the police will then come to the hospital.
    • You are not required to talk with the police or to make a police report in order to receive medical treatment.
    • If you consent to talk with the police, you are not committing yourself to prosecution.
    • The anonymous report will be included in the Annual Crime Statistics which Security compiles in compliance with the Clery Act
