Intimate Partner Violence
If you have been assaulted and you do not wish to speak to the police for whatever reason you may have a confidential exam done. If you have this exam at Mercy Medical Center Forensic Nurse Examiner Program we are able to store any evidence collected for up to 16 months. At any point during that time you may decide to report your assault to the police. The evidence we collect now can be used to support your case in the future.
