Woman in Vegetative State for Last 14 Years Gives Birth

A Hacienda HealthCare spokesman said the organisation was co-operating with authorities. "And they didn't know what was wrong with her", they added.

A patient who had been in care at the facility for more than 10 years gave birth on December 29, a source told KPNX.

"This matter is now under investigation by the Phoenix Police Department", Sergeant Tommy Thompson told Reuters when asked about the media reports.

It is "already conducting a comprehensive internal review of our processes, protocols, and people to ensure that every single Hacienda resident is as safe and well cared for as possible".

Victim advocate Tasha Menaker, chief strategy officer of the Arizona Coalition to End Sexual and Domestic Violence, said it would be appropriate for police to run DNA tests on male employees at the facility.

A spokesperson for Hacienda HealthCare did not immediately return Fox News' request for comment Tuesday. "Anything less than that is unacceptable to our team, our company's leaders and the communities we serve".

At this time, no suspects have been identified and no arrests have been made.

In a statement, Gary Orman, the executive vice president of the board, said 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", according to the news station. Hacienda was given a year to fix the "defects" in staff training and staff treatment of patients or be removed from the Medicare roster.

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".

But there have been reports of patient mistreatment.

A mother of another patient at the facility posted a sign to her daughter's door saying that no men, including staffers, are allowed in until the police find the rapist. 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. The worker had also been observed watching clients touch themselves.
