Police investigating after woman in 10-year coma gives birth

A woman who's been in a vegetative state for 14 years and is a patient at a care home in Arizona in the U.S. has given birth.

Hacienda HealthCare says investigators served a warrant Tuesday, asking for DNA samples from male employees. The Phoenix Police Department is the law enforcement agency leading the criminal investigation, and we continue to coordinate with them to ensure the integrity of their investigation and bring about justice.

She gave birth on December 29, surprising the facility's staff, who reportedly didn't know she was pregnant until she began moaning.

"None of the staff were aware that she was pregnant until she was pretty much giving birth", a source told news outlet AZ Family.

One staff member was sacked for making repeated inappropriate sexual comments to patients.

Detectives have asked men at the Hacienda HealthCare facility in Phoenix to give buccal swabs, Thompson said.

In a statement released to PEOPLE on Friday, Hacienda HealthCare spokesman David Leibowitz said the organisation, which runs the facility, was cooperating with authorities, but declined to divulge the exact nature of the underlying incident.

This sign is hung on Jazzmyne Deann Morris's room door at the Hacienda HealthCare facility in Pheoniz, Ariz., where a patient in a vegetative state gave birth on December 29, 2017.

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

A spokesman for Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) called the recent report "deeply troubling" in a statement to The Washington Post.

Gary Orman, the executive vice president of the facility's board, said in a statement to HuffPost that Hacienda HealthCare "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". Her identity has not been reported and it is not known if she has a family or a guardian.

The Arizona Department of Health Service and the Arizona Department of Economic security have also released statements and both organisations are conducting investigations into the incident and conditions at the facility.

The state's online complaint database for care facilities shows multiple complaints about Hacienda de Los Angeles going back to 2013. Most involve fire drill and evacuation preparation or Medicaid eligibility. That employee was later fired.

"The family obviously is outraged, traumatized and in shock by the abuse and neglect of their daughter at Hacienda Healthcare", said John Micheaels, who represents the family of the woman, according to the New York Times.

"We don't know who this person is yet".

A woman who worked at Hacienda in a management position for more than a decade told CBS 5 she believes the baby, a boy, is alive and healthy.

"I can't think of a legitimate reason not to call it what it is", he said.
