Healthcare boss resigns after coma patient gives birth

Healthcare boss resigns after coma patient gives birth

The woman had been a patient at the Phoenix facility for years after nearly drowning, according to azfamily.com, which broke the story; police declined to provide NPR with details about their investigation. "It is my hope that justice will be served".

Officials say they are committed to cooperating with the police to "uncover the facts in this deeply disturbing, but unprecedented situation".

Last week, Arizona's Family broke the news that the unidentified woman, who had been in an unresponsive state after a near-drowning, gave birth on December 29, her pregnancy unaware to Hacienda staff.

Mr Timmons offered his resignation on Monday and it was unanimously accepted by the facility's board of directors.

The Hacienda has also enacted new rules, in response to this incident.

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.

Previously, healthcare sources said: "From what I've been told, she was moaning.

I haven't been able to sleep good at night because of what occurred here", Angela Gomez, a Hacienda patient's mother, said".

Even in centres like Kerala, Karnataka and AP/TS, Petta has turned out to be the most preferred movie on day 1. Superstar Rajinikanth's much-awaited film, Petta , has hit the theatres worldwide today.

Tribal officials confirmed the woman was still in a coma when she gave birth. And in another case Arizona DHS investigated in 2013, a staffer was sacked for making inappropriate sexual comments about multiple patients.

In a statement, board member Gary Orman said Hacienda "will accept nothing less than a full accounting of this absolutely horrifying situation". A woman in a vegetative state gave birth on December 29, 2018, in a Hacienda facility, prompting a sexual assault investigation.

Last week the state's department of economic security sent investigators to the facility for health and safety checks. Employees did not know that the patient was pregnant.

"I know Chief Jeri Williams and the Phoenix PD officers will do all they can to find the perpetrator", he said.

A spokesman for Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) called the recent report "deeply troubling" in a statement to The Washington Post.

The birth has prompted a sexual abuse investigation at the nursing facility, The Mirror reports.

Hacienda HealthCare over time became the umbrella for several programs in the Phoenix area that treat chronically ill infants, children and adults. The Arizona department of health services has said new safety measures have been implemented. The caregiver was also incensed at the facility's staff, who she says should have noticed her gaining weight or missing periods. The staff member remarked that one client with intellectual disabilities had been placed in a sexual position.

"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.
