Family of woman in vegetative state who gave birth is 'traumatized and in shock'

Police seek staff DNA over vegetative woman's baby

An Arizona woman in a vegetative state who was sexually assaulted at a long-term care facility and had a baby is recovering at a hospital along with her child, authorities said Wednesday.

The now-former CEO of Hacienda HealthCare, Bill Timmons, has also stayed silent about exactly what he knew and when he knew it.

He confirmed the baby was in distress following the birth, but staff members of the facility were there when the baby was born and it was a natural birth.

Today, the San Carlos Apache Tribe (the "Tribe") learned of the tragic circumstances surrounding [redacted], an enrolled member of the Tribe.

Tribe chairman Terry Rambler spoke on behalf of the tribe in saying he was "deeply shocked and horrified".

Martin Solomon, a personal injury attorney in Phoenix whose clients are mostly vulnerable adult victims of abuse and neglect, said a lawyer representing this woman should call for all pertinent medical records, a list of current and ex-employees and any past litigation involving Hacienda.

"Unless you are very overweight, most women will show visible signs of pregnancy by the third trimester, so it is surprising to me that her caregivers did not realize her state", Landry said.

"This is the highest priority for the Phoenix Police Department", said Sgt. Tommy Thompson, a spokesperson with the Phoenix Police Department.

Hacienda HealthCare, the company that manages the nursing home, said police in Phoenix served a search warrant on Tuesday to obtain the DNA, according to The New York Times.

He didn't release the conditions of the woman and child.

The woman's family "is not emotionally ready to make a public statement" about the case, but noted through Micheaels that "the baby boy has been born into a loving family and will be well cared for".

They issued the statement a day after the company's CEO Bill Timmons resigned amid growing outrage over the attack on the unidentified woman, who has been in a vegetative state since nearly drowning as a teenager 14 years ago.

Hacienda HealthCare said they accepted DNA testing of its employees and will cooperate with officials.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is encouraged to contact the Phoenix Police Department Violent Crimes Bureau at 602-262-6141.

Executive Vice President Gary Orman said in the statement that the facility "will accept nothing less than a full accounting of this absolutely horrifying situation, an unprecedented case that has devastated everyone involved".

Gov. Doug Ducey's office has called the situation "deeply troubling". In the wake of the reports, the Arizona Department of Health Services said new safety measures have been implemented. They also have not indicated whether they are investigating people outside of the employees at the facility.

"I can't believe someone receiving that level of constant care wasn't recognized as being pregnant prior to the time she delivered", Meyers told the AP.
