In the case of a sexual assault, there is access to a forensic nurse, who is called in to examine and take special care of the victim. A victim's advocate will also be called in to assist you with any needs and to help support a victim through the process. This care begins in the emergency room. The advocate can stay with you as your support system during the exam. If you feel you need to
see a doctor you may also request the presence of a physician.
