Phoenix Police announced that Nathan Sutherland, 36, who was responsible for taking care of the unconscious patient at the Hacienda HealthCare centre in Phoenix, Arizona, was arrested today after his DNA "matched the baby".
PHOENIX-A nurse who was supposed to be looking after an incapacitated woman at a long-term health care facility was charged on January 23, with raping her, weeks after she stunned her caregivers and family by giving birth to a baby boy.
Eleanor Riggers, a licensed practical nurse worked as a respiratory therapist at Hacienda HealthCare for 11 years, worked closely with Sutherland to help care for the victim, who has been described as a 29-year-old woman who can't speak and can barely move.
Sutherland was arrested and booked at the Maricopa County Jail on one count of vulnerable adult abuse and one count of sexual assault, Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams said during a press conference on Wednesday.
Ultimately, investigators obtained DNA samples from male employees at the facility, Including Sutherland. Arizona's governor is looking into whether the state can remove the board of directors of a long-term care facility where a nurse is accused of raping an incapacitated woman who later gave birth.
Thompson said he believes the baby has since been released from the hospital. The Arizona State Board of Nursing is set to determine whether to suspend Sutherland's practical nursing license Friday.
In response to the governor's tweets, Hacienda HealthCare stated they have agreed to the State of Arizona's "request to have a third-party management team in place to oversee patient care and daily operations". During the course of the investigation into the identity of the baby's father, Sutherland was compelled via court order to give a DNA example.

"Nate and T know, understand, and have experienced the less than poor side of life; where you either have a shirt or some used trousers with holes in them to wear (no underwear or shoes) and if you got 1 meal a day, you were considered blessed".
Riggers said she was "completely devastated" when she learned of the arrest.
"Stop allowing.your situation to dictate who you are in life", Sutherland said, according to the New York Daily News.
Sutherland appeared in court Wednesday but did not enter a plea. Despite this, Sutherland and his sister formed their rap duo in 2003. Immediately after the surprise birth, police worked to find the person who sexually assaulted her.
"I cried. I just cried and cried", she said. While speaking to NBC News, Pastor Mosley said, "That was back in the early days, him and his sister had a rap act". He also mentioned that he liked his job as a nurse.
A neighbor said she regularly sees Sutherland, his wife and four children leave for church on Sundays.
