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.

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