Woman in vegetative state gives birth at Hacienda Healthcare in Phoenix Woman in Vegetative State Gives Birth in Long-Term Care Facility

Famous nursing facility Hacienda HealthCare in Phoenix, Arizona has come under serious scrutiny after a female patient, who had been in a coma for 14 years, gave birth on 29 December.

A spokesman for Hacienda HealthCare said investigators served a search warrant Tuesday to obtain DNA samples from all male staffers. "I was confused. I was scared", she said.

"As a healthcare provider, we can not comment on any patient due to federal and state privacy laws".

Orman said in the statement that Hacienda "will continue to cooperate with Phoenix Police and the investigating agencies at all levels in every way possible".

Hacienda confirmed the warrant for DNA samples to the news station and added it will do "everything" it can to "bring this police investigation to a quick conclusion". The birth was a shock since the patient has been in a vegetative state for more than a decade due to a near-drowning incident.

Social media was flooded with outrage over why police will not call the investigation of a woman in a vegetative state being impregnated, then giving birth a sex crime. None of the employees at the hospital were aware that she was pregnant. Her life is split between her bedroom and another room where she's taken by wheelchair to spend her days, the woman told ABC 15.

The former caregiver described the patient's condition in detail and said that she could not possibly have given consent to sexual intercourse, because she has been in a vegetative state for more than a decade.

A Hacienda HealthCare spokesman said the organisation was co-operating with authorities.

"The family would like me to convey that the baby boy has been born into a loving family and will be well cared for", Phoenix attorney John Micheaels said in a statement.

Awake but immobile, and apparently unaware, her universe consisted mostly of a room at a Phoenix Hacienda HealthCare facility where she received round-the-clock care.

A source told NBC 12 that Hacienda has changed protocol since the birth, requiring that male staff members be accompanied by female staff members.

Advocates for the disabled say Arizona needs to find a way to monitor allegations of sexual abuse and sexual violence in group settings.

"We have recently become aware of a deeply disturbing incident involving the health and safety of a Hacienda resident", Leibowitz said.

On its website, Hacienda HealthCare says it provides care for "medically fragile and chronically ill infants, children, teens, and young adults as well as those with intellectual and developmental disabilities".

"I can't believe that somebody would bathe her daily for nine months and never know that she wasn't having a period, that she [was] growing in her midsection, that nurses weren't keeping track" of her weight, the person said. "Most of the places are senior care", Cesena said.
