  • DO bring a change of cloth­ing with you to the emer­gency room.
  • Even if days have passed since your assault, it is still impor­tant to have a thor­ough med­ical exam­i­na­tion and receive treatment.

Treat­ment at Ivin­son Memo­r­i­al Hos­pi­tal shall be pro­vid­ed based on the hospital’s abil­i­ty and capac­i­ty to care for the patient’s health care needs. In com­pli­ance with all fed­er­al, state and local laws, there shall be no dis­crim­i­na­tion in ser­vices based on the patient’s age, sex, race, col­or, creed, nation­al ori­gin, sex­u­al ori­en­ta­tion, or dis­abil­i­ty. Med­ical treat­ment will be made with­out regard to the patient’s abil­i­ty to pay for service.
