Medical Accompaniment

Typically, an advocate will accompany a survivor of sexual assault to the hospital for medical care after the assault (specifically for a rape kit). This generally happens one of two ways: The survivor calls the hotline and decides to go to the hospital, at which point the advocate would meet the client at the hospital or at a determined location. A survivor is at the hospital and discloses the abuse. The hospital is mandated to call the local crisis center for services which will prompt an advocate to come to the hospital. The client can then accept or refuse services.
