Carson Tahoe Health holds SANE training

Carson Tahoe Health was selected by the International Order of Forensic Nurses as the West Coast site for the clinical portion of the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner training course. The training took place Nov. 18-19 at the Carson Tahoe Regional Medical Center, where 15 nurses were certified, including four Carson Tahoe Health employees.

SANE refers to a registered nurse who has been trained to provide comprehensive care to sexual assault patients in a medical environment. These nurses receive specific training in evidence collection techniques, including how to gather physical evidence such as DNA, or nail and hair fibers in sexual assault cases.

The training was funded by grants and took more than two years to arrange. Carson Tahoe Health will partner with Advocates to End Domestic Violence and law enforcement officials to perform these high quality exams. For more information, go to or

The national organization was founded in 1986, and each locally established chapter is sponsored by a local neurosurgeon. In April, Sekhon was named 2013 Physician Sponsor of the Year.

ThinkFirst of Northern Nevada is headed by chapter director Kathy O’Sullivan. Each year, it hosts a helmet giveaway in conjunction with the Kiwanis Club Bicycle Rodeo and visits high schools to present information about brain injuries.
