Many people who attend emergency departments and urgent care centres are vulnerable adults or children, or may have been involved in road traffic incidents. In these cases, emergency nurses must safeguard evidence that could prove useful in the elimination, identification and prosecution of suspects. They must ensure that such evidence is retained, transferred and stored so that it does not deteriorate.
