Police served a search warrant yesterday to get DNA from all male employees at a long-term care facility in Phoenix where a patient who had been in a vegetative state for years gave birth, triggering reviews by state agencies and putting a spotlight on safety concerns for patients who are severely disabled or injured.

Hacienda HealthCare said it welcomed the DNA testing of employees.

The company said in a statement that they will continue to cooperate with Phoenix Police and all other investigative agencies to uncover the facts in this deeply disturbing, but unprecedented situation.

According to the New York Post, the woman, who had been in an asexual state for more than 10 years after a near-drowning, delivered a baby on December 29.
