Woman in Vegetative State for Last 14 Years Gives Birth

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

Since the birth, Hacienda has placed a policy of requiring female employees to accompany male employees to female patients' rooms, most likely pushed forward by the Arizona Department of Health Services, which said in a statement that it has implemented "heightened safety measures" that include "increased staff presence during patient interactions as well as surveillance of patient care locations". "We will continue to cooperate with Phoenix Police and all other other investigative agencies to uncover the facts in this deeply disturbing, but unprecedented situation".

The Hacienda HealthCare facility where a woman in a vegetative state gave birth in December.

Sources tell Arizona's Family that the alleged victim has been a patient at the Hacienda HealthCare facility, which is near 16th Street and South Mountain Avenue, for at least a decade after a near-drowning incident left her in a vegetative state.

An investigation is underway by Phoenix Police, as controversy mounts over the incident.

Hacienda Healthcare's longtime CEO Bill Timmons resigned on Monday following news of the birth.

"None of the staff were aware that she was pregnant until she was pretty much giving birth", a source familiar with the situation said.

The news has been described as "deeply troubling" by a representative for Arizona Governor Doug Ducey.

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".

In a statement, board member Gary Orman said the facility "will accept nothing less than a full accounting of this absolutely horrifying situation".

The Hacienda facility serves infants, children and young adults who are "medically fragile" or have developmental disabilities, according to its website. Her identity has not been reported and it is not known if she has a family or a guardian. Most involve fire drill and evacuation preparation or Medicaid eligibility. For example, an investigation in 2013 found that a staff member had made "inappropriate, sexual statements" about four clients. The employee was sacked.

Attorney John Micheaels, who confirmed to PEOPLE he has been retained by the women's devastated relatives, revealed the family is "outraged, traumatized and in shock by the abuse and neglect of their daughter at Hacienda Healthcare".

It would be the police who would lead DNA testing to figure out who fathered the baby, Solomon said.

"She said that it would be degrading for a resident to have staff come and go, while a shower is being given".

The source said the facility has changed protocol this week.

"And we knew not to mess with that temper because people got fired". "We really need a lot of work in this area". "I haven't been able to sleep good at night because of what occurred here", another mother, Angela Gomez said. I can't believe someone would bathe her daily for nine months, never know she wasn't having her period, she wasn't growing in her mid-section.
