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 are for physical injuries and can test for STIs, pregnancy, & unintended drug ingestion. Some medical resources (e.g., Santa Clara Valley Medical Center) are able to perform forensic evidence collection processes (“rape kits”).

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.
