Jennie Edmundson SANE/SART Teams Care for Sexual Assault Survivors

Jill Ferguson and Carrie Potter provide special care to people after a traumatic and very personal experience.

Ferguson, emergency department manager at Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital, and Potter, sexual abuse coordinator at Catholic Charities, are members of the Sexual Assault Response Team, which includes law enforcement officials and others.

Ferguson leads Jennie’s team of Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners, who are the first to perform a medical examination on sexual assault victims after they enter the hospital.
