Healthcare boss resigns after coma patient gives birth

Healthcare boss resigns after coma patient gives birth

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. 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.

Phoenix police are now conducting a sexual assault investigation.

"Hacienda stands committed to doing everything in our power to bring this police investigation to a quick conclusion", a hospital spokesperson told ABC Phoenix affiliate KNXV.

Longtime CEO Bill Timmons resigned on Monday, a move backed by firm's board of directors, and the state's Department of Health Services said it would mandate the facility to operate under stronger guidelines for the time being.

An incident where the victim almost drowned a decade ago has left her in a vegetative state. And in another case Arizona DHS investigated in 2013, a staffer was sacked for making inappropriate sexual comments about multiple patients. It's also unclear if staff members at the facility were aware of her pregnancy until the birth.

"This woman has been here for 10 years and then all of a sudden this baby is born", she said.

Hacienda HealthCare said it welcomed the DNA testing of employees.

Among Republicans, however, support for the wall is much stronger, with 77 percent approving and 54 percent supporting the shutdown as a means to that end.

Officials from the San Carlos Apache Tribe in Arizona say the woman is a member of their tribe and confirmed she "has been in a persistent vegetative state and coma for over a decade", according to a statement obtained by local TV station 12News.

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. "But I can't believe someone receiving that level of constant care wasn't recognized as being pregnant prior to the time she delivered".

The investigation into a Phoenix, Arizona, nursing facility where a patient gave birth late last month, despite having been in a vegetative state for more than a decade, appears to be ramping up.

Hacienda said it in a statement it was cooperating with law enforcement and reviewing its security protocols after becoming aware of a "deeply disturbing incident and "an unprecedented matter".

On its website, Hacienda describes itself as "Arizona's leading provider of specialized health care services for medically fragile and chronically ill infants, children, teens, and young adults as well as those with intellectual and developmental disabilities".

The source also said that Hacienda does not have cameras inside the hallways or rooms of the facility: the rape or sexual assault that happened was not recorded. "Most of the places are senior care", Cesena said.
