Medical Options

Medical resources provide diagnosis, treatment, follow-up, & referrals for medical complications of sexual and/or relationship violence-related issues. In addition, they care for physical injuries and can test for STIs, pregnancy, & unintended drug ingestion.

Medical options are confidential, although medical personnel are required by California law to report to the police instances where they observe physical injury caused by assault.

SART exams: Some medical resources (e.g. Stanford Hospital or Santa Clara Valley Medical Center) are able to perform forensic evidence collection processes (“rape kits”).
