The professional and highly-trained staff at Douglas C.A.R.E.S. provide forensic medical exams for children who have been physically or sexually abused or neglected.
These exams help law enforcement and courts assist children who have been hurt. They also keep children from having to undergo multiple examinations and more trauma. At C.A.R.E.S., children only need to have one complete forensic exam to collect evidence.
C.A.R.E.S. is totally focused on the comfort and care of the children we see. Every room in our building is designed and decorated to reduce trauma. Our offices feel safe and are non-threatening, especially when compared to a hospital or law enforcement setting.
C.A.R.E.S. also conducts many of the Well-Child exams for children coming into foster care in Douglas County.
Douglas C.A.R.E.S.' Medical Exam staff includes Family Nurse Practitioners, and Pediatric SANE (Sexual Abuse Nurse Examiners) trained nurses who are experts in sexual abuse with more than 15 years of experience.
