CEO quits after vegetative patient has baby

CEO quits after vegetative patient has baby

San Carlos Apache Police chief Alejandro Benally said Phoenix police "will do all they can to find the perpetrator".

The tribe confirmed the events surrounding the birth at Hacienda HealthCare in a press release obtained by ABC15, saying the patient "has been in a persistent vegetative state and coma for over a decade". "It is my hope that justice will be served".

The Hacienda HealthCare company's CEO Bill Timmons resigned from his position after news of the sexual assault went public.

The sources added to the news outlet that investigators are evaluating other patients at the facility for signs of abuse.

An attorney for the family of the vegetative woman said on Tuesday that the baby boy is healthy but it's not clear who now has custody of the child, reported KPHO. 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.

"I haven't been able to sleep good at night because of what occurred here", Angela Gomez, a Hacienda patient's mother, said. It is also unclear if staff members at the Hacienda de Los Angeles facility were unaware of the pregnancy until the birth.

The New York Times and NBC News reported that the Phoenix Police Department had opened an investigation into allegations involving the facility but the agency would not discuss the details of the case or how long they had been looking into it.

In a statement, Hacienda said Board Executive Vice President Gary Orman vowed that Hacienda "will accept nothing less than a full accounting of this absolutely horrifying situation, an unprecedented case that has devastated everyone involved, from the victim and her family to Hacienda staff at every level of our organization".

The woman had been raped multiple times while being cared for at the Arizona centre, reports AzFamily.com.

When she heard that the woman had given birth, the caregiver said she cried because she knew that the woman could not defend herself or identify her assailant.

The office of Arizona's governor has described the situation as "deeply troubling". "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 Hacienda facility serves infants, children and young adults who are "medically fragile" or have developmental disabilities, according to its website. For example, an investigation in 2013 found that a staff member had made "inappropriate, sexual statements" about four clients.

One staff member was sacked for making repeated inappropriate sexual comments to patients.

INSIDER also uncovered state records of two other disturbing reports at the facility.

"I can't think of a legitimate reason not to call it what it is", he said.
