Seek Medical Attention
Campus Safety can be reached 24 hours a day and will escort any Knox community member to a place of his or her choosing, provide transportation to area hospitals, and provide information about the College’s resources and processes by connecting you to a member of the Title IX team. You may also choose to report the incident to local law enforcement, and Campus Safety can assist with the coordination of this.
In the emergency room, doctors and nurses can treat any injuries, test for and treat sexually transmitted infections, and test for pregnancy. A medical exam will also help collect evidence in case you decide now or at a later time to pursue criminal charges or legal action. If possible, you should not bathe, shower, douche, change clothes, apply medication, or relieve yourself before going to the hospital. If you have changed your clothes, bring the original clothing with you in a paper (not plastic) bag. In addition to assistance by providing a ride to the hospital, Knox Campus Safety can connect you with community and campus resources, including confidential counseling and victim services advocates.
