Danville Regional Hospital is the nearest hospital with a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) on staff.  If a physical sexual misconduct occurred within the last 72 hours, a SANE can collect forensic evidence for use in a possible criminal investigation.  Having evidence collected does not mean that the student has to make a decision about whether to report the assault at that time.  The student can request an anonymous Physical Evidence Recovery Kit (PERK) and make the decision whether or not to report the assault when he/she is ready.  The PERK can be stored for a year while the student decides.  If the student decides to go to the hospital, he or she should consider contacting an advocate so that the student has the information needed to make the choices that are right for him/her
