RESULTS: 1450 surveys were completed. Respondents were mostly young (age 31.0±11.4 years), single (59.7%, n=865) females (59.2%, n=859). There were 268 (18.5%) physicians, 392 (27.0%) nurses, 497 (34.3%) medical students, and 275 (19.0%) other healthcare practitioners. 1397 responded to the question regarding whether or not they would change their approach towards a patient in the ICU upon discovery of a background of incarceration for a sex offense would change their approach towards these patients. One in five medical students (20.9%, n=101) and nurses (19.7%, n=75) and one in six doctors (15.1%, n=39) reported they would change their approach towards the patient. Women seemed slightly more likely to change their approach towards sex offenders than men (20.2% vs 16.3%), but this difference was not statistically significant (p= 0.069).
