As an Emergency Physician and a member of the State of Connecticut Commission of the Standardization of Collection of Evidence and Sexual Assault Investigations since 1993, I hope that the following is helpful and useful to any victim of the crime of Sexual Assault. When presenting to the Emergency Department, one needs to be clear and concise in speaking with the triage nurse who is the first medical person encountered. State that your complaint is personal and private and once you are comfortable with the privacy, tell them you were sexually assaulted (raped) and request to see a physician.

However, it is an ongoing process and I believe more needs to be done.

There are two types of legal actions that victims of sexual assault may be exposed to following a report to law enforcement. Understanding how these distinctly different systems work can facilitate an understanding of what the victim might realistically expect to experience.

There is perhaps no greater loss of control than being raped. Therefore, it is all the more important that a rape victim exercise control in speaking with the media. Otherwise, a victim can unwittingly undergo a second victimization through the media's mishandling of them and their story.
