Rep. Jeff Weninger told KPHO one idea would be to allow families to install cameras in the rooms of their loved ones so they could be monitored remotely.

The family obviously is outraged, traumatized and in shock by the abuse and neglect of their daughter at Hacienda Healthcare.

The woman who gave birth at a Phoenix health care facility recently despite being in a vegetative state was identified Tuesday as a 29-year-old member of the San Carlos Apache Tribe.

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.

San Carlos Apache Police Department Chief Alejandro Benally said in the release that the case was in the jurisdiction of the Phoenix Police Department and his agency would assist in any way possible.

The 3D camera would be able to create 3D depth maps by measuring the time it takes light to bounce off things in a scene. Apparently, the iPhone XI featured in these images is still in its Engineering Validation Test (EVT) phase.

The woman had been a patient in a clinic run by Hacienda HealthCare near Phoenix for over a decade and required round-the-clock care.

"Today, Phoenix Police investigators served a search warrant to obtain DNA from male Hacienda HealthCare staffers".

In a statement, tribal officials said the woman was still in a coma when she gave birth. It's not known if the woman has a family or a guardian.

Given that the woman was in a vegetative state from a near-drowning incident and thus incapable of communicating consent or that she was pregnant, the pregnancy was clearly the result of sexual assault.

She said no one reported that incident exclusively out of fear, and she believes there's been other abuse throughout the years.

"And we will do everything in our power to ensure the safety of every single one of our patients and our employees", Orman added.

"I saw people disappear and never come back", she said.

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

The CBS source also claimed the facility has introduced a new rule that male staff members are banned from seeing a female patient without a female staff member after the incident. They include increased staff presence during any patient interaction, more monitoring of patient care areas and additional security measures involving visitors.

Founded as Hacienda de Los Angeles in 1967, Hacienda HealthCare is described 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".
