Police investigating after woman in 10-year coma gives birth

Not only are there questions about how the woman was impregnated, but how nobody on staff was aware of the pregnancy up until the moment the patient started to go into labor and began moaning.

Phoenix police so far have declined comment.

Police served the long-term care facility with a search warrant Tuesday, the Associated Press reported.

On Monday, longtime CEO Bill Timmons resigned from Hacienda after reports of the December birth surfaced last week.

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.

According to its website, Hacienda HealthCare serves more than 2,500 people throughout Arizona each year.

An incident where the victim almost drowned a decade ago has left her in a vegetative state.

"Hacienda stands committed to doing everything in our power to bring this police investigation to a quick conclusion".

Gary Orman, executive vice president of Hacienda HealthCare, said the company would "accept nothing less than a full accounting of this absolutely horrifying situation".

She is a member of the San Carlos Apache tribe, whose reservation is 134 miles east of Phoenix, the AP said.

Hacienda, he added, "will continue to cooperate with Phoenix Police and the investigating agencies at all levels in every way possible".

The CBS source also claimed the facility has introduced a new rule that male staff members are banned from seeing a female patient without a female staff member after the incident.

Karina Cesena told a Phoenix news outlet, "I do not [know if my daughter was victimised], but I do ask her, and she can answer yes or no".

Govenor Doug Ducey's office has called the situation "deeply troubling".

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

"The question is that people are going to have is what do the police have to hide?" said Bill Richardson, former chief sex crimes investigator.

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.

The Arizona Department of Health Services has confirmed the patient who was allegedly raped was a resident at Hacienda Healthcare in Phoenix, Arizona.

That staff member was ultimately terminated, but the state found that the facility "failed to ensure clients. were treated with dignity". Troublingly, the alleged incidents weren't reported to the facility's administrators until a month after they occurred.
