Male nurse arrested after woman in vegetative state gave birth to his son

A male nurse has been arrested in Arizona on suspicion of raping a quadriplegic woman who suddenly gave birth despite being in a vegetative state for 26 years. Nathan Sutherland, 36, has been taken into custody and now faces one charge of sexual assault and one count of vulnerable adult abuse after a DNA test identified him as the father. He has been a licensed practical nurse since 2011.

If this "nurse" is found guilty which should be easy to prove via a paternity test he should not be the only person held responsible. It seems very strange a patient could give birth and the staff did not even know she was with child.

I still fail to understand how it got that far in the first place (the women giving birth, and it being a surprise). I am an ex community nurse myself and I know for damn sure they would know that woman was raped long before her giving birth. this goes way, way, way deeper than one person, but I am fairly sure he will be the only one held responsible.
