Haverford Health Services (x1089) has walk-in hours Monday – Thursday 9:00 am to 5:45 pm and Friday 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. A student who has been sexually assaulted should contact Nurse Practitioner Wendy Mahoney or Medical Director Catherine Sharbaugh either through Campus Safety or at the Health Services during working hours. After hours call Campus Safety (610-896-1111) and ask for the on-call nurse. The dispatcher will contact the on-call nurse, who will return the call.
Health Services is able to provide primary medical care and referrals after an assault, but NOT a rape exam. The examination is NOT admissible in court as evidence. Health Services can:
- check for external and internal injuries
- offer information about hospital and clinics which provide free, anonymous HIV tests
- provide STI tests and treatment
- test for pregnancy and provide the morning-after-pill.
