Petition Update

The amazing service of Children's Hospital

SlutWalk Milwaukee

Dec 6, 2011 — Had a wonderful discussion with Children's Hospital. Children's doesn't have SANE responders, but a response that is much more specific to sexual assault for children. While their staff isn't on 24 hours, their ER people are trained to work with kids who have been assaulted and can call their experts anytime. The advocate I talked to is very supportive of our petition, as he wants every hospital to have care for adults as comprehensive as Children's is for children!

In the initial petition for this cause I had listed Children's as not having a 24 hour SANE response, which they do not, but they do have a 24 hour response for sexual violence with an ER staff that is trained and may use one the their children's physicians for advise on a 24-hour call. For hospitals that say this kind of service is not doable, Children's proves that is it!!!!
