Police seek staff DNA over vegetative woman's baby

Investigators launched their case after learning a 29-year-old woman gave birth to a son on December 29, despite having been in a vegetative state for 14 years following a near-drowning accident.

Phoenix attorney John Michaels said in a statement: "The family is obviously outraged, traumatised and in shock by the abuse and neglect of their daughter as Hacienda Healthcare".

Though the woman has not been named, authorities said she is Native American and 29 years old.

'Sadly, one of her caretakers was not to be trusted and took advantage of her.

"We had consulted attorneys to determine whether it would be legal for our company to compel our employees to undergo DNA testing conducted through Hacienda or for Hacienda to conduct voluntary genetic testing of staffers", the statement said.

"It is my hope that justice will be served", Rambler added. However, both mother and child are now recovering in hospital, according to BBC News.

"The family would like me to convey that the baby boy has been born into a loving family and will be well cared for", he said.

Phoenix police are investigating the case of a woman who gave birth after years of being in a vegetative state.

The facility said in a statement last Friday that it had "recently become aware of a deeply disturbing incident involving the health and safety of a Hacienda resident" but did not provide more information.

In the announcement, the company confirmed that Phoenix police had served a search warrant "to obtain DNA from male Hacienda HealthCare staffers". Police said they have ramped up the search for a suspect in a case that has made national headlines.

San Carlos Apache Police Chief Alejandro Benally said Phoenix police "will do all they can to find the perpetrator".

In a statement, board member Gary Orman said the facility "will accept nothing less than a full accounting of this absolutely horrifying situation".

The private care facility serves babies, children and young adults who are "medically fragile".

Gov. Doug Ducey said he was "very troubled" by the allegations. It has multiple complaints going back to 2013, most for emergency preparation or Medicaid eligibility, according to the state's online complaint database for care facilities.

The now-former CEO of Hacienda HealthCare, Bill Timmons, has also stayed silent about exactly what he knew and when he knew it.

The incidents were not relayed to an administrator and the employee was later fired. They also say health care workers need better training on identifying and reporting sexual abuse. "That's when he said, 'Why don't we try and get her to your home?'" King said.

"I expect they will get answers from this case so I would say there would be a 100% resolution to this case".

"I can't believe someone receiving that level of constant care wasn't recognized as being pregnant prior to the time she delivered", Meyers said.
