Abstract:

Evidence-based Practice Abstract

Purpose: A busy suburban emergency department (ED) experienced an increase in the number of victims of interpersonal violence being treated. The sexual assault nurse examiner (SANE) program manager had a vision to expand the current SANE program to include victims of interpersonal violence.

Design: In an effort to improve the quality of care provided to victims of abuse including physical, emotional and sexual, the SANE program manager and the ED clinical nurse specialist (CNS) searched the literature to determine the best evidence to enhance care for this patient population. The program name was changed to reflect the new focus; Center for Abuse and Rape Emergency Services (CARES).

Setting: A 54 bed, level 3 trauma center in the Midwestern United States.

Participants: The CNS and SANE program manager developed a program to educate the ED staff nurses, charge nurses and ED physicians regarding changes to the program. All SANE nurses were educated regarding the collection and preservation of physical and biological evidence for all victims of abuse.

Methods: A literature search was conducted to discover best practice methods in the area of domestic violence identification and evidence collection to ensure comprehensive care to any victim of interpersonal violence over the age of 13. Education was provided to all charge nurses regarding identification and resource utilization. Staff nurses were educated to identify red flags of domestic violence and appropriate interviewing techniques. ED and trauma physicians were advised of the program expansion. The program is supported by a grant from the hospital foundation.

Results/Outcomes: The data were collected pre and post implementation. Prior to 2010 the number of SANE cases was stable with 44 cases in 2008 and 48 cases in 2009. With the expansion of the program to include abuse victims the numbers increased dramatically; 2010, 57 sexual assaults, 44 domestic violence, (total 109 cases); 2011, 53 sexual assaults, 69 domestic violence (total 122 cases). A 44.6 CE SANE/FNE training course was offered in late 2011 to respond to the demand. The number of police departments served has increased from 15 in 2008 to 29 in 2011. Community outreach has also increased since the CARES program began including safety and educational programs for junior and senior high school students to nursing student, paramedic students and graduate nursing students. The number of SANE/FNE nurses has increased from 9 to 18 since the program was implemented. This was due to the increased demand for services.

Implications: It is possible to integrate a SANE program successfully into a CARES program. Support from ED and hospital leadership is integral to support the program. This program is successful and is supported as it is in line with the hospitals vision and mission.
