SANE Program

The Muscogee (Creek) Nation’s Family Violence Prevention Program in coordination with the Nation’s Department of Health were awarded a 2015 Victim of Crimes Act (VOCA) grant, in the amount of $395,278, to establish the Nation’s first Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) program. This project was pursued in an effort to increase the Nation’s effort to provide comprehensive services to survivors of sexual violence. The SANE program allows survivors of sexual violence to receive specialized care by Registered Nurses. SANE exams are designed to provide preventative health care, identification and treatment of injuries, and may include forensic evidence collection. In order to ensure comprehensive care and support, SANE exams are provided through a joint response of both the SANE nurse, and a Victim Advocate from the Family Violence Prevention Program. We are also presently working with local law enforcement agencies to ensure the most victim support available.

The SANE program currently serves adult and post-pubescent adolescent victims for free, regardless of race or ethnicity, at two medical center locations. They are Muscogee (Creek) Nation Medical Center in Okmulgee, as well as, Creek Nation Community Hospital in Okemah. There are two on-call sexual assault nurse examiners available to respond to either location 24/7. The Family Violence Prevention Program has advocacy services available for both adults and child sexual assault victims.

For more information, please feel free to contact the Family Violence Prevention Program office and/or the SANE Program Manager,  LaResa Williams at LaResa.Williams@creekhealth.org and/or by calling (918) 758-5114. You may also contact the Family Violence Prevention Program 24/7 at (918) 732-7979.

Seeking medical treatment after a sexual assault:

Adults do not have to press charges or even file a police report to receive free medical care following a rape/sexual assault. You can be checked and treated for possible injuries, receive treatment for possible sexually transmitted infections, and be provided with medication for the prevention of pregnancy. Every step of the exam is entirely voluntary on your part and you may stop or refuse services at any time during the exam. The examination is free and confidential.

If you would like to request a hospital rape exam (SANE Exam) you have several options:

  1. Contact your local law enforcement agency to report the rape and law enforcement will make arrangements for the exam. If possible refrain from bathing, combing your hair or changing clothes in order to help preserve evidence. An exam can still be conducted regardless of these factors.
  2. If you do not wish to report the rape to law enforcement, contact the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Family Violence Prevention Program at (918) 732-7979. We have Advocates available on-call 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
  3. Contact one of the Oklahoma Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Services/Locations in your area.

SEXUAL ASSAULT IS A CRIME!

What happened to you is not your fault. The person who harmed you is 100% responsible for the assault.
