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
