"I stay here pretty much 24/7".

"From what I've been told, she was moaning", an unidentified source told Phoenix CBS affiliate KPHO.

A spokesman for Hacienda HealthCare said police investigators served a search warrant today to obtain DNA from all male staffers.

INSIDER also uncovered state records of two other disturbing reports at the facility.

The facility is now under criminal investigation after a woman went into labor in her bed and delivered a healthy baby boy on December 29, 2018 at the care facility for people with intellectual disabilities.

She was reportedly raped multiple times. In the meeting, she says she was briefed on an incident that happened, in which female nurses had gathered around a non-verbal male patient's bed and made inappropriate comments about his genitalia.

"The family would like me to convey that the baby boy has been born into a loving family and will be well cared for", Phoenix attorney John Micheaels said in a statement. "Everything is so confusing right now".

"My heart hurts, my chest hurts".

It would be the police who would lead DNA testing to figure out who fathered the baby, Solomon said, adding that it would be hard for Hacienda to escape liability.

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.

Calling her case an "absolutely horrifying situation", Hacienda HealthCare board member Gary Orman said in a statement that the "unprecedented case. has devastated everyone involved, from the victim and her family to Hacienda staff at every level of our organization".

The New York Times and NBC News reported that the Phoenix Police Department had opened an investigation into allegations involving the facility but the agency would not discuss the details of the case or how long they had been looking into it.

A lawyer for the woman's family released a statement Tuesday saying the family was outraged at the "neglect of their daughter" and they asked for privacy.
