SANE trained nurses available at UPMC Altoona
Eighteen UPMC Altoona nurses recently completed a multi-step training program to become Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners.
As a result of this training, the number of sexual assault cases identified and reported by UPMC Altoona has been on the rise.
The accomplishment involved the efforts of many community partners, including Family Services Inc., the Altoona Police Department, the Greensburg Crime Lab and the Blair County District Attorney’s Office. Together with UPMC Altoona, these organizations make up the Central Pennsylvania Sexual Assault Response Team.
