Will a medical exam prove that abuse did or didn’t happen? Will a medical exam hurt?
While a medical examination is important to the overall health and well-being of the child, many forms of child sexual abuse leave no lasting physical evidence or injury. The child sexual abuse medical examination at Judi’s Place is not invasive and is not painful.
How do I report abuse?
With very few exceptions, Kentucky residents have an obligation to report suspected child abuse to the appropriate authorities. You may report to the Department for Protection and Permanency at 1-877-KYSAFE1 or to your local law enforcement agency. Reports are confidential and you can choose to remain anonymous.
