The family of the Arizona woman who gave birth to a baby boy last month, despite being in a vegetative state for a decade, is still coming to grips with how their daughter’s trust was violated.
Attorney John Micheaels, who confirmed to PEOPLE he has been retained by the women’s devastated relatives, revealed the family is “outraged, traumatized and in shock by the abuse and neglect of their daughter at Hacienda Healthcare.”
“The family is well aware of the intense news and public interest in their daughter’s case, but at this time is not emotionally ready to make a public statement,” Michealels said in a statement obtained by Fox 10 and 12 News Tuesday evening.
Micheaels also gave an update on the newborn writing, “The family would like me to convey that the baby boy has been born into a loving family and will be well cared for.”
Earlier on Tuesday, the patient, who has been receiving treatment at Hacienda HealthCare in Phoenix, was identified as a member of the San Carlos Apache Tribe of Arizona.
The tribe confirmed in the press release the woman is 29 years old, meaning she has been in a vegetative since her late teens.
“On behalf of the Tribe, I am deeply shocked and horrified at the treatment of one of our member,” Chairman of the Tribe Terry Rambler explained in the release.
“When you have a loved one committed to palliative care, when they are most vulnerable and dependent upon others, you trust their caretakers. Sadly, one of her caretakers was not to be trusted and took advantage of her.”
“It is my hope that justice will be served,” Rambler added
