building and sustaining the program

 

Your support helps offer hope for people facing the most difficult time of their lives.

Bon Secours Richmond Forensic Nursing Services provides a continuity of care from reporting to conviction. Unlike an ER physician who can be called away during a sexual or physical assault exam, the forensic nurse (housed in offices away from the ER) is able to stay with the patient through the entire exam.

As a liaison between the medical profession and the criminal justice system, a forensic nurse is specially trained in evidence collection, criminal procedures, legal testimony, and other skills required not just to care for the patient, but to assist with the prosecution of a crime.

Bon Secours Richmond Forensic Nursing Services, which is dedicated to providing comprehensive, compassionate care in a safe environment, is a true community effort supported financially by our health system parent (Bon Secours) and generous corporate and individual donors. However, there is more work to be done.

We invite you to invest in our community by supporting the Bon Secours Richmond Forensic Nursing services. Your gift will make a difference by extending hope and healing to individuals, families and communities. It will help us sustain the legacy of our Bon Secours faith-based ministry, by bringing Good Help to Those in Need®.
