Medical Forensic Exam Services
If you are a victim of a crime, our first priority at Mary Washington Healthcare
is making sure you receive the immediate healthcare services and emotional
support you need. You may also receive services from a separate team of
specially-trained forensic nurse examiners (FNE) to ensure important evidence
is collected. The use of forensic nurse examiners provides high quality
medical and forensic documentation and evidence collection which may lead
to a more positive criminal justice outcome.
Our forensic nurse examiners have specialized training and certifications.
The SANE designation indicates Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner. They are
prepared to work with all types of victims including:
- Sexual assaults (pediatric, adolescent, and adult)
- Domestic violence/abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Elder neglect/abuse
- Child neglect/abuse
- Physical assault
- Traumatic injuries (gun shot wound, stabbings, etc.)
- Exploitation/human trafficking
Our forensic nurses provide services at Mary Washington Hospital, Stafford
Hospital, the Emergency and Outpatient Center at Lee’s Hill, and
Safe Harbor Child Advocacy Center. To support you, our forensic nurse
examiners are active participants with multiple local counties and jurisdictions
as part of their multidisciplinary teams. They often collaborate with
military and government agencies as well. In addition to collecting evidence
that may be used as part of a criminal investigation, the FNE may be called
upon to deliver expert testimony during criminal trials.
