Woman in vegetative state gives birth at Hacienda Healthcare in Phoenix

Police investigating after woman in 10-year coma gives birth

A Phoenix Police Department spokesman, Sgt. Tommy Thompson, said only that the "the matter is under investigation".

The mother has been living at Hacienda after suffering from a near-drowning incident left her brain damaged over 14 years ago. "It is my hope that justice will be served".

According to NBC News, a Phoenix woman, who is unable to move or speak, gave birth to a baby boy on December 29, at the Hacienda HealthCare facility.

Bill Timmons' resignation, which was unanimously accepted by Hacienda's board of directors, came as new allegations of past abuses emerged.

Awake but immobile, and apparently unaware, her universe consisted mostly of a room at a Phoenix Hacienda HealthCare facility where she received round-the-clock care.

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.

It would be the police who would lead DNA testing to figure out who fathered the baby, Solomon said, adding that it would be hard for Hacienda to escape liability.

Two people claiming to be former employees of Hacienda Healthcare have spoken out to detail what the nursing home and its parent company are like after a patient's surprise pregnancy and birth sparked a sexual assault investigation.

Police have launched a sexual assault investigation into the incident.

This Year's Oscars Won't Have A Host, Report Says
Tuesday, the Philadelphia-born superstar took to his SiriusXM radio show Straight from the Hart to address the situation again . For the first time in nearly 30 years, the Oscars will air without a host, Variety has confirmed.


A high-ranking executive in the company said that they would "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".

Another statement said Hacienda is "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 Arizona Department of Economic Security has since conducted a health and well-being check on all other patients at the facility. "And they didn't know what was wrong with her".

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

The company, which says it is cooperating with police, provides services ranging from day programs to long-term residential care for more than 2,500 patients annually.

A male patient also complained several staff members walked in on him while he was naked and showering with the assistance of a female member of staff in December 2017, according to records from the Department of Health and Human Services. The caregiver was also incensed at the facility's staff, who she says should have noticed her gaining weight or missing periods.

"We're not going to point out who we've obtained DNA from or who we intend to get DNA from", he said.

"I wasn't there", Meyers said.
