Healthcare Facility Chief Quits After Woman in Coma Gives Birth

Healthcare Facility Chief Quits After Woman in Coma Gives Birth

Staff at Hacienda HealthCare were not even aware of the fact that the woman was pregnant "until she was pretty much-giving birth", a source told KPHO.

The chief executive of the corporation in charge of an Arizona nursing home where a woman in a vegetative state gave birth has resigned.

He refused to say whether the hospital would subject its male staff members to DNA tests to help identify a suspect. It is unclear if any employees have responded to the police's request.

"Bill Timmons, longtime Chief Executive Officer of Hacienda HealthCare, has terminated his employment from the company effective immediately", a Tuesday statement from the facility to HuffPost reads.

"Timmons' resignation was accepted unanimously by the Hacienda Board of Directors", the statement said. Last year, NPR revealed that Americans with intellectual disability are sexually assaulted at a rate seven times higher than those without disabilities.

Karina Cesena told Phoenix independent news station KTVK that she is sleeping in her 22-year-old daughter's room at the facility until the assailant is found. The baby's head started to emerge when a nurse came in to check on her. "She is not able to walk or talk yet, but she does understand". "Trust has been broken and severed completely".

Protocol at the clinic has been changed, the source said, and men now have to be accompanied by a woman on entering the room of a female patient.

Tribal chairman Terry Rambler said he was "deeply shocked and horrified at the treatment of one of our members". "It is my hope that justice will be served".

Pavard helped his country win the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation and scored goal of the tournament , against Argentina. Salihamidzic revealed to reporters: "I can confirm that Benjamin Pavard will join us on a five-year deal from 1st July 2019.

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

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

Hacienda almost lost its Medicare funding in December 2013 after Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) found at least one staff member was abusive to multiple patients while several staff members were deficient in reporting patient allegations of abuse by staff.

This sign is hung on Jazzmyne Deann Morris's room door at the Hacienda HealthCare facility in Pheoniz, Ariz., where a patient in a vegetative state gave birth on December 29, 2017.

The state's online complaint database for care facilities shows multiple complaints about Hacienda de Los Angeles going back to 2013.

It happened at Hacidena Healthcare, a facility for medically fragile children, teens, and adults.

There have been reports of patient mistreatment.

One staff member was sacked for making repeated inappropriate sexual comments to patients.
