Regional Resources

For victims of sexual assault, the physical and emotional injuries that result require clinicians who can offer comprehensive support. Lowell General offers specially certified nurses are on-call 24x7 to treat victims of sexual assault when they arrive in the Emergency department. Their training as Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE), includes proper documentation of evidence in case the victim wishes to pursue legal action. They also provide clothing and other resources to assault victims when they leave the Hospital.
