The SAFE program is a coordinated effort between The Center and Greenwich, Stamford and Norwalk Hospitals to provide timely, compassionate and trauma-informed sexual assault forensic exams to victims of sexual violence. For this program, they will train a minimum of 12 nurses, who will later be made available to the three area hospitals. The hospitals will utilize the already existing 24-hour hotline to connect with the program coordinator. If the victim qualifies as a SAFE Kit candidate, the program coordinator will activate the SAFE on-call system and arrange for the arrival of a nurse and advocate to the hospital emergency room. The program will also ensure ongoing training for SAFE nurses, ER personnel and law enforcement.
