Title: Compliance with mandated emergency contraception in New Mexico Emergency Departments
Author: Angeli, Eva; Espey, Eve; Buchen, Elizabeth; Ogburn, Tony; Leeman, Larry
Subject: emergency contraception
New Mexico Emergency Department
Abstract: The purpose of this study was to determine whether the requirements of the New Mexico state law are being met. We sought to determine the presence of hospital protocols ensuring provision of emergency contraception to sexual assault survivors being treated in New Mexico EDs. We also queried hospital ED staff to determine if provision of EC to sexual assault victims was actually occurring. We also sought to identify barriers to offering EC in cases of sexual assault. Additionally, we assessed the approach to patient requests for EC in the setting of consensual, unprotected sex.
