In this episode of RN Huddle, we continue to discuss SANE nursing as a part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Join Claire, Jen, and Devi as they finish their discussion on the fictitious cases that they started chatting about during our last episode. As always, we here at RN Huddle aspire to educate about hot topics in nursing that although are tough to discuss, are necessary to advocate for. If you or anyone you know has been sexually assaulted, there are many resources out there for everyone to remain safe and get the help they need. Here are some hotlines who can help: National Domestic Violence Hotline: 1-800-799-SAFE(7233); Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network: 1-800-656-HOPE(4673); and the National Teen Dating Abuse Helpline: 1-866-331-9474.
