    I transferred to the ED two weeks ago. I was looking forward to seeing if there were any screening tools or resources that helped identify victims of sex trafficking, but I have not found anything other than the typical “do you feel safe at home,” “has anyone physically or sexually abused you,” and another one that I cannot remember right now. I feel like these questions are extremely broad and allow for things to be missed. Also, I am sure that having their “pimp” or abuser present during these questions makes it hard to assess the patient without their presence altering their responses. I have to say that that is one thing I have enjoyed and disliked about hospitals not allowing visitors in the status quo, the patient is able to tell you their version but other times this also can hinder a true assessment. Have you been exposed to working with any victims? How did you handle it?
