Forensic Nurse Examiners
Scottsdale Healthcare’s Forensic Nurse Examiners (FNEs) now treat patients involved in domestic violence strangulation, a strong predictor of future violence. While providing world-class care to victims, the FNEs also provide medical-forensic exams that assist detectives and prosecutors in strangulation cases. This is important because medical corroboration is instrumental for felony penalties related to domestic violence strangulation.
The FNEs now use high-tech cameras to provide documentation of injuries. The cameras, reports created by FNEs and the evidence they collect enable more felony cases to be filed and convictions obtained.
Library Services provides patients, families and the public with individualized research. Professional library staff quickly deliver the latest information on wellness and medical issues at no charge. Weekly “Ask the Healthcare Expert” programs provide an opportunity to speak with healthcare professionals and receive current information.
