Healthcare Facility Chief Quits After Woman in Coma Gives Birth

Healthcare Facility Chief Quits After Woman in Coma Gives Birth

"I can't believe that somebody would bathe her daily for nine months and never know that she wasn't having a period, that she [was] growing in her midsection, that nurses weren't keeping track" of her weight, the person said. Police are now investigating the incident. In 2017, state investigators determined that patients were not afforded sufficient privacy while naked or showering at the facility.

Gary Orman, the executive vice president of the facility's board, said in a statement to HuffPost that Hacienda HealthCare "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".

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

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

The state department of economic security dispatched a team to conduct health and safety checks at the facility, and the department of health services has beefed up safety measures: more staff, increased monitoring and stronger security. In 2013, a male employee was found to have made sexually explicit remarks to patients, though no physical or sexual abuse allegations were made and the employee was sacked.

She added, "We were talking about reporting it to CPS (now known as Department of Child Safety) and Bill Timmons slammed his fist on the table and said, 'No!"

Meanwhile, a state lawmaker is considering legislation to protect patients living at long-term healthcare facilities from abuse. Doing background checks isn't enough, said Erica McFadden, executive director of the Arizona Developmental Disabilities Planning Council.

The sudden birth of a baby boy to a woman who had spent the last 14 years in a deep coma has sparked a sex abuse investigation. "If it's the same story from different people, then there's something wrong".

"We don't have a systematic way to train people what's a good touch or a bad touch". "We really need a lot of work in this area".

"I wasn't there. I clearly don't have firsthand knowledge of what happened", Meyers said. Employees only realized that the woman was pregnant when she began to make moaning sounds while she was delivering the baby.
