Hospital Advocacy

Sexual assault survivors in the state of Oregon have the statutory right to have a personal representative of their choice (must be over 18 years old and NOT have been a witness to the incident) present in the room during any sexual assault exam and forensic evidence collection process. Hospital advocates are usually affiliated with the area's domestic violence advocacy program (not the hospital itself) and are trained to provide emotional support, help with safety planning, and explain the available forensic evidence and/or legal recourse options so that the survivor can make informed choices.
