DCH Partners with Community Agencies on SANE Program


A community group that includes the University of Alabama, DCH Regional Medical Center, victim advocates, the Tuscaloosa District Attorney’s office, and area law enforcement is working together to establish a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) Program and a Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) in Tuscaloosa County. Since last fall, the group has been working to implement the best model to have SANE-certified care for victims of sexual assault in the Tuscaloosa community. While this long-term solution is being implemented, DCH is training its staff in the SANE course curriculum.
