Facility CEO resigns after woman in vegetative state gives birth

State officials say they have acted to protect other patients following the pregnancy. None of the employees at the hospital were aware that she was pregnant.

Tribal Chairman Terry Rambler said in the release that he was "deeply shocked and horrified" by the incident.

A Hacienda HealthCare spokesman said the organisation was co-operating with authorities.

Phoenix police are pursuing DNA samples from every male employee at a private care facility where a patient in a vegetative state recently gave birth.

Police in Arizona served a search warrant on Tuesday to collect DNA from male staffers at long-term care facility where a woman gave birth while in a vegetative state.

Police have declined to comment on the investigation.

Officials from the San Carlos Apache Tribe in Arizona say the woman is a member of their tribe and confirmed she "has been in a persistent vegetative state and coma for over a decade", according to a statement obtained by local TV station 12News.

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.

"We will do everything in our power to ensure the safety of every single one of our patients and our employees", Orman said.

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

The Phoenix Police said they could not confirm the reports.

She said no one reported that incident exclusively out of fear, and she believes there's been other abuse throughout the years.

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

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

The source said that staff only found out she was pregnant on the day she gave birth.

Hacienda describes itself as Arizona's "leading provider of specialised health care services for medically fragile and chronically ill infants, children, teens, and young adults as well as those with intellectual and developmental disabilities". The Arizona department of health services has said new safety measures have been implemented.

On Monday, a person claiming to have been one of the patient's primary caregivers for many years sat down for an interview with ABC 15, saying there's no way the woman could have given consent.

All they've said is they're investigating "a matter". "And we knew not to mess with that temper because people got fired".

"I wasn't there. I clearly don't have firsthand knowledge of what happened", Meyers said.

"Federal and state laws guarantee certain basic rights to all residents of this facility and they include the right to a dignified existence and to be treated with dignity", a report issued at the time read.
