Woman in Vegetative State Gives Birth in Long-Term Care Facility

Coma Patient in Phoenix Health Facility Gives Birth to Baby Boy

According to agency documents, Hacienda HealthCare later corrected facility "deficiencies" that contributed to the incident.

Founded as Hacienda de Los Angeles in 1967, Hacienda HealthCare describes itself 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". "And they didn't know what was wrong with her", they added.

"It is my hope that justice will be served", said tribal chairman Terry Rambler, expressing his trust in the police investigation.

It has been revealed the 29-year-old woman was an enrolled member of the San Carlos Apache tribe, whose reservation is in south-eastern Arizona.

Her identity is being protected, and it is not known if she has a family. The woman, who has remained nameless, was a victim of a near-drowning accident "at least a decade ago".

Company spokesman David Leibowitz previously said the group was "fully committed to getting to the truth of what, for us, represents an unprecedented matter".

A woman who worked at Hacienda in a management position for more than a decade told CBS 5 she believes the baby, a boy, is alive and healthy.

An active sex abuse investigation is proceeding to see how a woman from Hacienda Healthcare was able to give birth while in a vegetative state.

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

Micheaels' comments came hours after Phoenix police served a search warrant to obtain DNA samples from male employees at the facility, the New York Times reported.

Hacienda chief executive Bill Timmons has also resigned amid the scandal.

Sexually assaulting a vulnerable adult is a felony in Arizona. "Trust has been broken and severed completely".

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey's office released a statement saying the reports are "deeply troubling".

There is also "increased monitoring of the patient care areas, and increased security measures with respect to visitors at the facility". the health department said.

The nursing home, meanwhile, had been cited for a privacy deficiency after a male patient told investigators in December 2017 that while he was being bathed by a staff member, other staff members would walk in on him while showering. The alleged incidents weren't reported to the facility's administrators until a month after they occurred.

The female staff member said in the complaint other staff members enter and exit the shower room while showers are taking place.
