Interpreting Toxicology and Alcohol/Drug Facilitated Sexual Assault
Patients often face a plethora of issues after a sexual assault. One issue being able to access proper healthcare and obtain a complete medical-forensic examination, that including toxicology screening and testing after a report of potential AFSA/DFSA. Forensic Nurse Examiners (FNEs)/Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANEs) receive general training on the basics of toxicology testing, but often lack understanding of the physiology of intoxication, the absorption, distribution, and excretion of alcohol and drugs from the body, the effects of proper education delivered to patients, and the associated costs to conduct toxicology testing.
