Saluting SAFE Nurses

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

The Crisis Shelter of Lawrence County salutes the efforts and dedication of the four forensic (SAFE) nurses in Lawrence County. Under the supervision and support of the Children’s Advocacy Center in New Castle, these professionals play a vital role in working with victims of sexual assault to find healing and justice.

A forensic nurse provides dedicated and specialized care for patients who are victims and/or a suspect of intentional or unintentional violence. Although he or she is a nurse first, this healthcare professional possesses knowledge of the legal system and expertise in forensic sciences.

After meeting a patient’s healthcare and psychosocial needs, the forensic nurse often collects evidence, provides medical testimony in court, and consults with legal authorities. By hiring and training forensic nurses, a community ensures that those who are affected by violence and abuse receive the specialized care they deserve—and forges or strengthens a vital link to ensure the administration of justice.

The board, administration, staff and volunteers of the Crisis Shelter of Lawrence County offered a heartfelt thank you to the nurses during National Forensic Nurses Week Nov. 9-13.
