The Sexual Assault Forensic Examination (SAFE) & Domestic Violence (DV) Program at GBMC provides survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, human trafficking, and child abuse with free, confidential services. These range from medical and forensic care to crisis and safety counseling. Patients are never turned away or charged for these services.

Using a patient-centered approach, SAFE & DV nurses attend to victims’ medical needs while expertly documenting injuries and collecting evidence of crimes. Laura Clary, BSN, RN, FNE-A/P, SANE-A, Clinical Program Manager, talked with WMAR’s Erin MacPherson more specifically about the services offered and discussed the upcoming Walk a Mile in Their Shoes event. Some of the topics she covered include:
  • Community partnerships that extend care beyond the walls of GBMC
  • Dedicated spaces within the SAFE & DV suite specifically designed for children
  • The effects that COVID-19 has had on victims
  • How the team has adjusted workflows to provide a safe and comfortable environment during the pandemic
  • Ways the community can support the SAFE & DV Program
This year’s Walk a Mile in Their Shoes is being held virtually on April 17. Everyone is welcome to register to support this amazing program and the survivors that it helps!

If you or someone you know is experiencing abuse or assault, call the SAFE & DV private hotline at 443-849-3323 or visit www.gbmc.org/safe-dv. You are not alone, we are here to help.
