To further meet the needs of local individuals impacted by sexual violence,
Mile Bluff’s Emergency Department has sexual assault nurse examiners
(SANE) available in Mauston.
The role of a SANE includes evaluating and treating patients with a holistic
approach. These nurses are specially trained to provide culturally-sensitive,
developmentally-appropriate, trauma-informed, patient-specific evaluation
and treatment. They gather medical history, as well as a history of the
assault, with a proper understanding of the medical and legal consequences
of both. It is a very specialized role that is unfortunately needed far
Anyone who experiences a sexual assault can come immediately and directly
to Mile Bluff’s Emergency Department. The staff is trained to be
mindful of both the immediate and the long-term impacts of sexual violence.
Individuals will be cared for with dignity, confidentiality and excellence.
If you would like more information about the SANE program, please contact
the department at 608-847-6161.
At Mile Bluff, the Urgent Care and the Emergency Department share a waiting
room. Urgent Care patients are seen based on reservation times and in
order of arrival. Emergency patients are seen in order of the severity
of their condition. If you are waiting, and see other patients get called
back for treatment ahead of you, it may be due to their condition or because
they reserved their spot online before coming in. The staff will keep
you informed of when you will be taken in for treatment. The Emergency
& Urgent Care Department at Mile Bluff is located at 1050 Division
Street, Mauston, WI 53948.
