  • Police seek staff DNA over vegetative woman's baby

The woman in a vegetative state, who gave birth to a baby boy on December 29, has been at the Phoenix-based nursing facility since she was a toddler, PEOPLE confirms.

She is considered a sexual assault victim, and police are collecting DNA samples from male workers at the facility in an attempt to identify who assaulted her.

There are continuing developments in the story of 29-year-old comatose woman who gave birth recently to a baby boy.

Police said the infant was not breathing when they were called into the facility, though both mother and child are now recovering in a local hospital.

Her family, who are members of the San Carlos Apache tribe in southeastern Arizona, said in a statement through their attorney that they will care for the baby boy.

Authorities have issued a search warrant to get DNA from all male staff members at the facility near Phoenix, Arizona.

Officials say they are committed to cooperating with the police to "uncover the facts in this deeply disturbing, but unprecedented situation".

Records obtained from Maricopa County Superior Court state the woman has been a resident of the facility run by Hacienda HealthCare for more than 27 years - almost double the length of time that appeared in previous reports.

According to the Huffington Post, the unidentified woman had been in a coma for 14 years after a near-drowning accident and is a member of the San Carlos Apache Tribe.

"A good way to understand it is that really, the baby's going to continue to grow even at the expense of the mom's nutrition", Dr Huls said.

Detectives have asked men at the Hacienda HealthCare facility in Phoenix to give buccal swabs, Thompson said.

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

"The family obviously is outraged, traumatised and in shock by the abuse and neglect of their daughter at Hacienda Healthcare".

The CEO of Hacienda HealthCare Bill Timmons resigned on Monday, the centre confirmed in a statement.

"We will do everything in our power to ensure the safety of every single one of our patients and our employees", Orman said in a statement.

"There's a lot of information we do not have".

In 2017, the facility was cited by the state for failure to protect residents' privacy while they were naked in the shower, according to records from the state Department of Health and Human Services.

"I think when you've had somebody who's had multiple allegations from different parties, there has to be some way to track that", McFadden said. However, the Model Systems Knowledge Translation Center, a division of the American Institutes for Research, explains a key difference: People in a coma don't open their eyes at all, while those in a vegetative state might.

"We're tickled that the baby's okay", Thompson said. "But I can't believe someone receiving that level of constant care wasn't recognized as being pregnant prior to the time she delivered".
