Coma Patient in Phoenix Health Facility Gives Birth to Baby Boy

Police investigating after woman in 10-year coma gives birth

The 29-year-old woman had been a patient at the Phoenix facility for more than a decade after nearly drowning, according to azfamily.com, two Meredith Corp. -owned TV stations that broke the story; police declined to provided NPR with details about their investigation.

The 29-year-old woman had a healthy baby on 29 December, according to local TV station KPHO.

When asked about the warrant, a police spokesman said only that the investigation was ongoing.

A former manager at Arizona-based Hacienda Healthcare, where a Native American woman gave birth while in a 14-year-long vegetative state, said the firm's CEO covered up prior abuse cases.

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

"While federal and state privacy laws prohibit us from publicly discussing a patient's health or case, Hacienda has and will continue to cooperate fully with law enforcement and all the relevant regulatory agencies regarding this matter", Leibowitz said by email.

The CEO of the Phoenix-based Hacienda HealthCare nursing facility resigned on Monday after one of its patients who has been in a vegetative state for over a decade gave birth to a child.

Gary Orman, the executive vice president of the company's board, said it would "accept nothing less than a full accounting of this absolutely horrifying situation". "And they didn't know what was wrong with her. ..."

"[We're] 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. None of the staff were aware that she was pregnant until she was pretty much giving birth". Sadly, one of her caretakers was not to be trusted and took advantage of her.

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

The woman had been a patient in a clinic run by Hacienda HealthCare near Phoenix for over a decade and required round-the-clock care.

Cesana is working to move her daughter out of the facility, which serves infants, children and young adults who are "medically fragile" or have developmental disabilities. Staff members reportedly hadn't noticed the patient was pregnant until she went into labor.

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.

Meanwhile, a state lawmaker is considering legislation to protect patients living at long-term healthcare facilities from abuse.
