At Carilion Clinic, we are dedicated to helping you through even the worst of circumstances. If you or your loved one has been a victim of assault, we understand the emotional trauma involved.
Through our forensic nursing program, we offer compassionate care and treatment while also focusing on gathering information that will be needed to protect victims of assault and to prosecute violent perpetrators.
Our program, formed in 1995, operates as a link between the judicial system, law enforcement, community services, and the laboratories that process evidence following a violent act. Aware that this is an extremely difficult time, our specially trained clinical forensic nurse examiners (FNEs) treat victims with caring sensitivity. They’ll attend to your physical and emotional needs while helping law enforcement in their efforts.
