Anonymous forensics & immediate medical aid
Confidential forensic examination is possible within 72 hours of the offence and can also be carried out independently of the decision to file a police report. Say the key phrase in the emergency room:
"Ich brauche dringend ein Gespräch mit einer Gynäkologin (I urgently need to speak to a gynaecologist)" (or "Ich brauche dringend ein Gespräch mit einem Urologen (I urgently need to speak to a urologist)").
You can also ask to be examined by a doctor of the same sex. You will then be directed immediately and discreetly from reception to the relevant ward or specialist.
The confidential forensic examination service is also available in Brandenburg at the Carl-Thiem-Klinikum, Frankfurt (Oder) Hospital, Brandenburg an der Havel University Hospital and Ruppin-Brandenburg University Hospital (Neuruppin), Alexianer St. Josefs-Krankenhaus Potsdam-Sanssouci and Oranienburg Hospital and the Charité's violence protection ambulance in Berlin.
In Berlin, it is possible to secure evidence at the Charité's violance protection ambulance.
