Services: The emergency rooms in all hospitals located in Escambia or Santa Rosa County offer medical and trauma exams.

A sexual assault forensic examination and evidence collection can be done up to five days after the assault. The SANE examiner will explain all aspects of the medical forensic examination, obtain consent for the examination, and collect evidence if desired. Treatment for STD’s and emergency contraception may also be requested. Forensic evidence can be collected without reporting to law enforcement. The sexual assault examination kit will be stored for four years, in the event an individual chooses to initiate legal action.
