The Maverick County Hospital District will begin to look into finding assistance to victims of sexual assault by looking to recruit Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) Nurse(s) and work with other organizations including law enforcement agencies to do so.
The MCHD Board of Trustees tackled the issue during their meeting held on Wednesday, June 26, 2019, and are moving forward with finding a solution to the problem.
Currently, there are no certified SANE Nurses who can exam victims of sexual assault in our community. The victims are having to be transported out of town to have examinations performed. This often adds to the stress and issues related to their tragic circumstance.
The Maverick County Hospital District is working to find a solution to that very issue.
