Kentucky releases sexual assault training video for hospitals

A new training video will teach Kentucky hospital employees about victim-centered care for sexual assault survivors, according to NBC affiliate WSAZ.

The video provides an overview of survivors' rights, hospitals' legal requirements under the Sexual Forensic Exam Act, the responsibilities of rape crisis advocates and the best ways to treat sexual assault victims. The Kentucky Association of Sexual Assault Program collaborated with the Kentucky Hospital Association and the state attorney general to produce the video.

Over 812,000 women and over 300,000 men have reported a sexual assault in Kentucky since 2010.
