SANE CASE DOCUMENT LOG
The Vermont SANE Program has recently changed how we collect data on exams performed by SANEs in Vermont. Effective 7/1/16, all SANEs must complete an online form following each encounter with a sexual assault patient. This quick and easy form replaces the individual case and quarterly data collection that hospitals had previously been submitted on paper. Because of this change, the Vermont SANE program will also be able to provide statistics regarding the incidence of SANE exams statewide, and on the hospital and individual provider level.
