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

The cops compelled DNA samples only after the facility discovered it could not legally force its employees to undergo DNA testing or voluntarily conduct the testing itself under federal law.

"As an organization, Hacienda HealthCare stands fully committed to getting to the truth of what, for us, represents an unprecedented matter", the statement continued.

The birth has triggered a police investigation and reviews by state agencies.

The new mom and baby boy are reportedly both in good physical health.

Police are investigating a sexual assault after a woman in a vegetative state delivered a baby in late December at Hacienda Healthcare in Phoenix.

The woman says the incident was never reported to the proper authorities, and she was left "horrified".

"I can't believe someone would bathe her daily for nine months, never know she wasn't having her period, she wasn't growing in her mid-section", one of the woman's former caregivers told ABC15, which did not reveal his or her identity. "It is my hope that justice will be served".

Phoenix police said the birth is under investigation and declined to give further comment.

Hacienda, a healthcare provider for "medically fragile and chronically ill" children and young adults, according to its website, said it welcomed the investigation.

It comes after a sex abuse probe was launched after a patient in a vegetative state gave birth.

The woman had been a patient in a clinic run by Hacienda HealthCare near Phoenix for over a decade and required round-the-clock care. According to the local station's unidentified source, the facility staff had no idea the patient was pregnant until she began moaning as she went into labor. "I haven't been able to sleep well at night because of what occurred here", a mother, Angela Gomez, told CBS.

"I know Chief Jeri Williams and the Phoenix PD officers will do all they can to find the perpetrator", he said.

One of them includes not allowing male employees in rooms without a female supervisor.

The source also said that Hacienda does not have cameras inside the hallways or rooms of the facility: the rape or sexual assault that happened was not recorded.

The 29-year-old, who is a patient at the centre which cares for people with intellectual disabilities, unexpectedly gave birth on December 29.

The facility located near 16th Street and South Mountain Avenue 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.

Since the news of the incident broke, parents of patients at the Phoenix-based health care facility have come forward, expressing their concerns.
