An acknowledgement letter, stating the request is being processed.

From: Department of Health and Environmental Control

Ms Mason:

You recently submitted a request to our office requesting a list of every hospital, clinic or other institution that provides sexual assault forensic exams administered by a certified Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE).

DHEC regulations require hospitals to have a registered nurse on duty at all times, but do not address staffing specifics such as SANE nurses. More generally, the regulations require all nursing personnel to be subject to all of the hospital’s policies and procedures, which may include staffing requirements for SANE nurses.

If I can be of further assistance please let me know. Your request is now closed.

Sincerely,

Karla A. York, Director
