Law enforcement and medical professionals, who have worked with sexual assault victims, know that victims are often "victimized" again when they go to hospital emergency rooms for medical care and evidence collection. All too often, the nurses who perform the exams often lack training and experience in working with sexual assault victims and in preserving evidence.
