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

Several sources close to the case told Arizona's Family that there is much more to be uncovered about the abuse allegations at this facility. "I haven't been able to sleep good at night because of what occurred here", Angela Gomez, a Hacienda patient's mother, said.

The family of the Arizona woman who gave birth to a baby boy last month, despite being in a vegetative state for a decade, is still coming to grips with how their daughter's trust was violated.

Hacienda HealthCare's chief executive, Bill Timmons, stepped down on Monday, spokesman David Leibowitz said.

A woman whose 22-year-old daughter is a patient at the facility said she refuses to leave her side until the investigation is conclusive.

The facility, which has room for over 50 patients, is now under investigation by police and the Arizona Department of Health Services.

Parents of patients at Hacienda Healthcare have called this incident "deeply concerning" and are considering moving their children from the facility.

"Hacienda stands committed to doing everything in our power to bring this police investigation to a quick conclusion", the spokesperson said. "I was confused. I was scared", she said.

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".




Staff at the private health facility were not aware that she was pregnant and were initially surprised when she began moaning during the beginning of her labour, according to Reuters.

"Trust has been severed, period", she said. The source said that staff only found out she was pregnant on the day she gave birth.

A Phoenix police spokesman said that "the matter is now under investigation" but declined to give any further details of the case.

Phoenix police so far have declined comment.

In 2013, Timmons received a warning from the Arizona Department of Health Services after an investigation revealed a staff member - who was later fired - made sexual comments about a patient that weren't appropriately reported. "I stay in her room", Cesena told As It Happens host Carol Off.

Now at the health center, more security guards are present and a new protocol requiring male staffers to be accompanied by female staffers if they go into a female patient's room has been put into place.

The facility provides intermediate care for patients with intellectual disabilities.

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.
