Comatose woman hospitalized after birth with baby

Phoenix Police served a DNA warrant on all male employees of Hacienda Healthcare in their hunt for the father of a boy born last month to a 29-year-old Apache woman in a vegetative state. A patient there gave birth to a child.

The 29-year-old woman has been in a persistent vegetative state since nearly drowning over a decade ago, and can not move or communicate.

Hacienda HealthCare has said it is cooperating fully with police. As a Healthcare provider, we can not comment on any patient due to Federal and State privacy laws.

SHAPIRO: The police held a press conference that you attended today.

As one of Chicago's top nursing home abuse and neglect firms, Levin & Perconti is unfortunately no stranger to cases of sexual assault and rape within nursing facilities. What else did you learn there?

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. They wouldn't specify who, but they said it's a large number of individuals.

The woman, who remains in a vegetative state, and the baby are recovering at a hospital, Thompson said.

Documents revealed that the woman received a medical exam almost nine months before giving birth. Phoenix police so far not commented, the AP reported.

An attorney for the woman's family says the baby boy will be well cared for.

Police are looking for her rapist and say it appears none of the staff members at a Phoenix long-term care facility knew about the pregnancy until the baby was born December 29, a notion that has drawn skepticism.

INNES: Well, one thing we don't know is whether staff knew that she was pregnant before she gave birth. Hacienda staffers reportedly did not realize the patient was pregnant until she began moaning as she was going into labor.

The Hacienda intermediate care facility specialises in providing around-the-clock care for infants, children and young adults with developmental disabilities or who are "medically fragile".

SHAPIRO: Obviously, there are legal considerations here.

It remains unclear to investigators if the woman was raped a few times. What are the implications there?

"We don't have a systematic way to train people what's a good touch or a bad touch". It's part of our coverage.

Last week the state's department of economic security sent investigators to the facility for health and safety checks.

But an anonymous former caregiver at Hacienda Healthcare told ABC-16 news that she was in disbelief over the situation. And that's something we're trying to figure out.

A female patient in a vegetative state at a Phoenix private care facility who recently gave birth has been identified as a member of the San Carlos Apache Tribe.

INNES: How precedented is that or. It is not known if anyone has refused giving a sample.

"People have the right to refuse, but then we come back with a court order, and then they have to do it", he said.
