Hacienda HealthCare operates the long-term care facility for the developmentally disabled where the 29-year-old incapacitated woman gave birth to a baby boy on December 29.
Hacienda Healthcare staff were unaware the woman was pregnant until she started to give birth. He was charged with one count of sexual assault and one count of vulnerable adult abuse.
That image is at odds with the man Phoenix police and prosecutors have presented to the world: the Hacienda HealthCare nurse who sexually assaulted his incapacitated patient and, a few days after Christmas, became the father of her child.
A nurse who for years worked closely with Nathan Sutherland, the male nurse accused of raping and impregnating an incapacitated woman he cared for, said that she was shocked after his arrest was made public.
Sutherland voluntarily surrendered his nursing license Thursday, according to paperwork filed with the Arizona Board of Nursing.

CNN previously reported that the Pentagon was asked to provide a list of those projects in anticipation of a national emergency. Even if voluntary, the land could take up to a year to be acquired.
Meanwhile, authorities say the baby is out of the hospital and doing well but did not release details. Sutherland was later released on $500,000 bond and ordered to wear an electronic monitoring device, the Associated Press reports. He was sacked from the healthcare facility, Hacienda Healthcare, after his arrest. "Even though it's an orphanage, you'll be blessed if you have one cup or bowl of rice a day". Together with his wife, Sutherland ran a catering company that specialized in weddings and business events.
Sutherland began working at Hacienda in 2011, police said.
Riggers said there were many other women who have similar conditions in the wing that Sutherland worked in, with some also not being able to communicate verbally. At his initial court appearance following his January 2019 arrest, Sutherland's lawyer said his client has lived in the state since 1993. Despite this, Sutherland and his sister formed their rap duo in 2003.
Another doctor who was responsible for her care has been suspended.
"I suspected others, but I was wrong, and he fooled everybody", Gomez said, CBS affiliate KPHO-TV reported.
"We're prepared to take this investigation wherever it goes", Thompson said.
Burr says Sutherland shared the home with his wife and four children, and she saw the couple leave for church every Sunday. The article of incorporation for Life in You, a charity, was to "show Christ's unconditional love by responding to the spiritual and physical needs of the homeless, Development Disabled Individuals" as well as orphans in the Phoenix-area. "He told me he was a nurse and he liked his job".
