Male workers face DNA testing after comatose woman had baby

DNA samples from all male employees at an Arizona long-term care facility were collected Tuesday as authorities investigate how a woman - who has been in a vegetative state for more than a decade - became pregnant and carried the baby to term without the staff knowing.

Police said they didn't have any updates Tuesday but Sgt. Tommy Thompson said Friday there was an ongoing investigation.

"We had consulted attorneys to determine whether it would be legal for our company to compel our employees to undergo DNA testing conducted through Hacienda or for Hacienda to conduct voluntary genetic testing of staffers", the statement said.

The mother and baby are "recovering" after being taken to a local hospital soon after the December 29 birth, according to police.

"The family obviously is outraged, traumatized and in shock by the abuse and neglect of their daughter at Hacienda Healthcare", attorney John Micheaels said in a statement Tuesday.

Sex abuse investigation underway after a patient in vegetative state for almost a decade gives birth.

They said in a statement: "We will continue to cooperate with Pheonix police and all other investigative agencies to uncover the facts in this deeply disturbing, but unprecedented situation". She has been in the care of Hacienda HealthCare, a Phoenix-based nursing facility.

The family of a woman in a vegetative state who recently gave birth after being raped is speaking out.

McCaw to sign deal with Raptors for rest of season
McCaw was a restricted free agent with the Golden State Warriors , but the defending champions chose not to match the contract . The 23-year-old was most recently waived by the Cavs earlier this week after signing a non-guaranteed 2-year, $6 million deal.

The case has drawn outcry from the governor to the San Carlos Apache tribe in southeastern Arizona, of which the 29-year-old victim is an enrolled member, and put the spotlight on the safety of group homes and facilities that care for those who are incapacitated or severely disabled.

"On behalf of the tribe, I am deeply shocked and horrified at the treatment of one of our members", tribal chairman Terry Rambler said.

"None of the staff were aware that she was pregnant until she was pretty much giving birth", the source said. "Sadly, one of her caretakers was not to be trusted and took advantage of her".

Hacienda "will accept nothing less than a full accounting of this absolutely horrifying situation", Gary Orman, the executive vide president of the Hacienda board, said in a separate statement Monday announcing the resignation of Hacienda HealthCare CEO Bill Timmons.

"It is my hope that justice will be served", Rambler added.

Founded as Hacienda de Los Angeles in 1967, Hacienda HealthCare describes itself on its website as "the leading provider of specialized medical care and social services for Arizona's infants, children and young adults who are medically fragile or chronically ill, including those with developmental disabilities". It has multiple complaints going back to 2013, most for emergency preparation or Medicaid eligibility, according to the state's online complaint database for care facilities.

The incidents were not relayed to an administrator and the employee was later fired. Doing background checks isn't enough, said Erica McFadden, executive director of the Arizona Developmental Disabilities Planning Council.
