Healthcare Facility Chief Quits After Woman in Coma Gives Birth

A Phoenix police spokesman told The Washington Post that the department is investigating but did not release details about the case.

She had reportedly been in a vegetative state for 14 years, since an incident in which she nearly drowned. "It is my hope that justice will be served". Police have been stationed outside Hacienda Healthcare over the last few days.

"Bill Timmons, longtime Chief Executive Officer of Hacienda HealthCare, has terminated his employment from the company effective immediately", a Tuesday statement from the facility to HuffPost reads.

Detectives have asked men at the Hacienda HealthCare facility in Phoenix to give buccal swabs, Thompson said.

Micheaels says the boy was born into a loving family and will be well cared for. "I stay in her room", Cesena told As It Happens host Carol Off.

Hacienda said that it had considered asking employees for DNA but that attorneys advised against it, believing it would violate federal law.

Tribal officials confirmed the woman was still in a coma when she gave birth.

The birth has triggered a police investigation and reviews by state agencies.

Calling her case an "absolutely horrifying situation", Hacienda HealthCare board member Gary Orman said in a statement that the "unprecedented case. has devastated everyone involved, from the victim and her family to Hacienda staff at every level of our organization".

The woman's identity has not been reported, and it's not known if she has a family or a guardian.

It comes after a sex abuse probe was launched after a patient in a vegetative state gave birth. Because he says without saying anything, they're creating distrust in the community, and with no suspect caught, police should want people to know what's going on, and to come forward if they know something.

The incident reportedly occurred at a Phoenix nursing facility, Hacienda HealthCare in the American state of Arizona, according to the RT News.

The office of Arizona's governor has described the situation as "deeply troubling".

A female patient living at a Hacienda HealthCare facility reportedly gave birth December 29 although the staff was unaware the woman was pregnant.

The Hacienda facility serves infants, children and young adults who are "medically fragile" or have developmental disabilities, according to its website.

Because the woman had need 24/7 care, many people had access to her room. But one from December 2013 outlines an allegation that a staff member made inappropriate sexual comments about four patients.

Sources also told ABC 15 in another report that investigators are looking into whether the patient suffered multiple sexual assaults, "including assaults on different parts of the body".

INSIDER also uncovered state records of two other disturbing reports at the facility.
