Medical Treatment and Evidence Preservation

Students and employees seeking medical treatment should go to the nearest hospital. For the preservation of evidence in the event of a sexual assault, the following guidelines are recommended:

  • Do not destroy the physical evidence that may be found in the vicinity of the crime. If the crime occurred in the victim's home, the victim should not clean until the police have had an opportunity to collect evidence.
  • Tell someone all details remembered about the assault. Write down all details remembered as soon as possible.
  • Do not bathe or douche. Do not urinate, if possible.
  • Do not eat, drink liquids, smoke, or brush teeth if oral contact took place.
  • Keep the clothes worn during the offense. If clothes are changed, place clothes in a paper bag (evidence deteriorates in plastic).
  • Get prompt medical attention at a local hospital.

Note: You may seek medical care without reporting the crime to the police.
