Ohio Protocol for Sexual Assault Forensic and Medical Examination

Protocol | February 1, 2011
Author: Other

Favorite Favorite

This protocol is intended for use by health care providers to ensure comprehensive care of sexual assault patients. It includes a contingency plan for the handling of anonymous kits. Adult patients are informed of their right to decide whether or not to speak to law enforcement, and if they choose not to report the sexual assault, the hospital/facility may provide the date and general assault location to the law enforcement agency with jurisdiction, without giving the patient’s name, address, or other identifying information.

This guide is intended to equip advocates with information and resources to support their housing advocacy efforts. To these ends, information on housing as both a sexual violence prevention and intervention advocacy area is explored.

Family violence crosses all race, class and cultural lines. Historically, all cultures failed to act to stop violence that occurred within the home. At the same time, no culture condones family violence and all contain forces within the culture that oppose violence and offer help to victims.

Overcoming Language Barriers in the Criminal Justice System

Geographic patterns of immigration have changed dramatically in the United States over the past decade. In the past, most new immigrants settled in either large cities or agricultural communities, where they were able to find steady work. But in recent years, newcomers have made their home in myriad communities across the country—in urban, suburban, and rural areas alike. In many of these places, local criminal justice agencies are ill-equipped to communicate with people who do not speak English well. As a result, incidents like the one described above— in which a language barrier impedes a basic criminal justice operation—have become increasingly common.

PAVSA: General procedures for anonymous reporting

Protocol | September 16, 2008
Author: Other

Favorite Favorite

The purpose of developing an anonymous reporting process is to allow DNA and other evidence collected during a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) exam to be stored indefinitely in the event a victim decides to report at a later time. The evidence may include BCA kits (including toxicology kit and BAL kit), clothing or other items collected, Sexual Assault Exam Report Form, and photo disc. St. Louis County Attorney’s Office has agreed to consider these immediate reports rather than delayed reports when making decisions about charging.
