Nursing Facility CEO Resigns After Woman in Vegetative State Gives Birth

Coma Patient in Phoenix Health Facility Gives Birth to Baby Boy

The woman's universe consisted mostly of a room at a Phoenix Hacienda HealthCare facility, where she received round-the-clock care, when she went into labour a few days after Christmas, flummoxing her caretakers. "And we knew not to mess with that temper because people got fired".

They declined further comment on Tuesday.

Hacienda HealthCare confirmed the search warrant for DNA samples Tuesday evening.

Hacienda HealthCare CEO Bill Timmons has resigned after news of the birth emerged.

Hacienda HealthCare said it welcomed the DNA testing of employees.

Bill Timmons, Hacienda HealthCare's CEO and president, resigned yesterday after a report that the woman was sexually attacked at one of his facilities in Arizona.

"When you have a loved one committed to palliative care, when they are most vulnerable and dependent upon others, you trust their caretakers".

The woman was injured in a drowning incident over ten years ago and has been in a vegetative state since.

She said no one reported that incident exclusively out of fear, and she believes there's been other abuse throughout the years.

Alejandro Benally, Chief of the San Carlos Apache Police Department said, "At this point, this matter falls under the jurisdiction of the Phoenix Police Department".

"I was told that as of now, if a male staff needs to enter a female room, they need to bring in a female employee with them".

Melissa Blasius-Nuanez with the Arizona Department of Health Services said in a statement that the agency is aware of the situation and is working with law enforcement in its criminal investigation.

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

"I can't believe that somebody would bathe her daily for nine months and never know that she wasn't having a period, that she [was] growing in her midsection, that nurses weren't keeping track" of her weight, the person said.

"I haven't been able to sleep good at night because of what occurred here", another mother, Angela Gomez said. We are already conducting a comprehensive internal review of our processes, protocols, and people to ensure that every single Hacienda resident is as safe and well cared for as possible.

The department of health ordered Hacienda to implement "heightened safety measures", spokeswoman Melissa Blasius-Nuanez said.

One staff member was sacked for making repeated inappropriate sexual comments to patients. Nobody relayed the incidents to an administrator.

A former caregiver of the victim whose identity was kept private expressed shock to ABC 15 that the facility's staff did not realize the patient was pregnant.
