The Sexual Assault Forensic Examination Telehealth Center (SAFE-T Center) at the Pennsylvania State University was launched with support from the Department of Justice, Office for Victims of Crime as a solution to enhance access to high quality sexual assault care in underserved communities. When a sexual assault examination is performed at one of our partner hospitals, one of SAFE-T Center’s expert nurses participates through telehealth. The expert nurse appears on a screen where they can talk to, and support, both the on-site nurse and the patient.
