Athens-Clarke County Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners, Inc. (ACC-SANE, Inc.) is taking organizational measures to prepare for COVID-19. ACC-SANE, Inc. Leadership is following guidelines released by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Department of Public Health (DPH) to ensure our medical providers have the protocols, processes and resources they need to deliver services.
We are also putting protocol in place for potential scenarios related to sick employees or contractors as a preventative measure. ACC-SANE, Inc. is committed to ongoing and open communication to reassure partner agencies, staff, patients, and our communities that we are fully engaged and prepared.
There are no plans to close or discontinue any services we offer. We are committed to our mission of conducting forensic medical exams for any adult or child who has experienced sexual and physical violence. Our specially trained nurses and advocates work hard to ensure that the men, women, and children we serve get the medical assistance and aftercare support that they need, and we will continue to ensure that our advocates and examiners have what they need to continue delivering services to patients in Clarke, Oconee, Walton, Morgan, Barrow, Jackson, Banks, Madison, Oglethorpe, and Greene counties.
