A Highlands University student says she struggled to get clear answers on what to do after she was raped earlier this year.
That’s the type of situation local officials want to change.
The woman said she didn’t immediately report her assault to authorities. She said she wanted to clean up first.
“I was in such shock,” she said.
The student knew the terminology and asked Alta Vista Regional Hospital if it had a sexual assault nurse examiner, or SANE. The hospital didn’t, she was told, but it had rape kits available.
