  • A Phoenix police spokesman told The Washington Post that the department is investigating but did not release details about the

Police have served a search warrant to collect DNA from male employees at a Phoenix healthcare facility where a woman gave birth while in a vegetative state.

He refused to say whether the hospital would subject its male staff members to DNA tests to help identify a suspect. "We will continue to cooperate with Phoenix police and all other investigative agencies to uncover the facts in this deeply disturbing, but unprecedented situation".

"A woman living at a Hacienda HealthCare facility in central Phoenix reportedly delivered a baby last month (on December 29)".

The outlet also reported that the patient has been in a vegetative state for at least a decade after almost drowning.

Phoenix police investigators are testing DNA samples from men who work at a Phoenix nursing facility in response to a vegetative patient giving birth there last week, according to KPHO.

It comes after a sex abuse probe was launched after a patient in a vegetative state gave birth.

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

Gov. Doug Ducey's office has called the situation "deeply troubling".

Alejandro Benally, chief of the San Carlos Apache Police Department, said that the matter is under the jurisdiction of the Phoenix Police Department and that his department would assist the department in any way possible.

"In a statement, board member Gary Orman said: "[We] will accept nothing less than a full accounting of this absolutely horrifying situation".

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".

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 department of health ordered Hacienda to implement "heightened safety measures", spokeswoman Melissa Blasius-Nuanez said.

A mother of another patient at the facility posted a sign to her daughter's door saying that no men, including staffers, are allowed in until the police find the rapist.

"We don't have a systematic way to train people what's a good touch or a bad touch".

But Cesena says neither she nor the other parents' families have been given any details about what those extra security procedures are.

Thompson said the sexual assault investigation will take some time.
