Forensic Nursing Appreciation
“ VIBS thanks all of its awesome forensic examiners for their wonderful trauma-informed care of sexual assault survivors of Suffolk County. Keep up the great work! We love you!”
-Karen McCaffrey Oprea, Director of SANE/SAFE
The program trains providers in forensic medical examinations, evidence collection techniques, and in coordinated community response to address violence. The Suffolk County SAFE (Sexual Assault Forensic Examination) program is a collaborative program sponsored by VIBS, the Suffolk County Police Department, Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office and our four partner hospitals. The SAFE program allows victims of rape and sexual assault to go to their nearest SAFE Center (located discreetly within our partner hospitals’ waiting rooms) and receive cost-free forensic examinations.
Learn more about the SANE/SAFE program at VIBS by visiting: vibs.org/safe/.
Services are for victims of domestic violence, rape/sexual assault, child abuse, elder abuse, human trafficking, and for veterans suffering from
Military Sexual Trauma (MST) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
All calls are free and confidential. Chat feature available.
