Frantic 911 call after woman in vegetative state gives birth

US woman who gave birth in vegetative state may not have displayed signs of pregnancy, expert claims

The nurse initially says the woman is stable but the infant is not breathing and is turning blue.

In recent days police have addressed the media to give more information about the sexual assault investigation now underway, after they were alerted to the birth. All the names were redacted. "Baby's turning blue. We need someone now".

'Okay, what's the emergency?' he asked.

A man got on the line who asked for clarification.

'Someone just had a baby - one of the patients just had a baby, and we had no idea she was pregnant, ' the nurse said. "We were not prepared for this".

After the nurse provided the facility's phone number, the manasked her, 'And the mom is doing okay?'

After the man confirmed that someone was performing CPR on the baby, he asked again, 'How's the mom doing?'

The panicked nurse at the Hacienda HealthCare facility tells the 911 dispatcher several times that the baby is a complete surprise because workers had no idea the woman was pregnant.

As the investigation into how a woman who has been in a vegetative state for almost a decade was impregnated continues, at least one expert said it's possible that staffers were unaware of the impending childbirth because the patient may not have shown any outward signs of pregnancy. The nurse, still sounding stunned, said that nobody would know.

However, the same relationship was not found among non-Hispanic whites, although the researchers are unable to explain why. This article has been republished from materials provided by Silent Spring Institute.

"We had no idea this person was pregnant..." Baby is not breathing, baby is blue'.

In a statement, Hacienda said Board Executive Vice President Gary Orman vowed that Hacienda "will accept nothing less than a full accounting of this absolutely horrifying situation, an unprecedented case that has devastated everyone involved, from the victim and her family to Hacienda staff at every level of our organization".

'We have no idea, this is a complete surprise, ' the nurse responded, without explaining that the woman is in a vegetative state.

Dr Laura Mercer, a clinical assistant professor and OB-GYN clerkship director at the University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix, said documenting a menstrual cycle is as important as recording other vital signs and bodily functions. Meanwhile, others in the room worked to resuscitate the baby, doing compressions on his chest and using a self-inflating resuscitator.

"Oh my gosh, thank God", the nurse said.

"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", Huls told the AP. The baby and mother were transported to a local hospital where both are recovering, according to police.

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.

After the patient's delivery was revealed, the Arizona Department of Health Services said new safety measures have been implemented, including increased staff presence during any patient interaction, more monitoring of patient care areas and additional security measures involving visitors. Bill Timmons, the company's CEO, resigned on Monday.
