Police investigating after woman in 10-year coma gives birth

She has been in an unresponsive vegetative state - which means a person is awake but shows no signs of awareness - for 14 years after a near-drowning incident left her partially brain dead. In Arizona, sexually assaulting a vulnerable adult is a felony.

Hacienda did not respond to INSIDER's request for comment.

According to the facility, Tuesday Phoenix police investigators served a search warrant to obtain DNA from male Hacienda HealthCare staffers.

The Arizona Department of Health Services told the Arizona Republic that in the wake of the news that a woman gave birth, the facility is required to have heightened security measures including increased staff presence during patient interactions, increased monitoring of patient care areas, and increased security measures with respect to visitors to the facility.

Because the woman had need 24/7 care, many people had access to her room.

"The Department has been made aware of these allegations and we continue to work fully with the Phoenix Police Department in their ongoing investigation".

He added that it was an "unprecedented case that has devastated everyone involved, from the victim and her family to Hacienda staff at every level of our organisation".

"I can't believe it at all".

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

"Too many entrances, too many opportunities".

"As soon as I saw it, I saw it on the news, my body started shaking. Or should I just keep my mouth shut?"

Activists and reporters have for years tried to bring light to Kelly's alleged actions. Kelly's former manager who threatened a father of one of the victims.

Hacienda HealthCare in Phoenix, Arizona on a January 4, 2019. He couldn't defend himself.

The woman's identity has not been reported, and it's not known if she has a family or a guardian. "No one is going to report this'".

She was reportedly raped multiple times.

The ex-employee, who worked for Hacienda HealthCare for more than ten years, described an alleged incident where female nurses were crowded around a nonverbal male patient inappropriately discussing his genitalia. He only became the facility's president on January 1, the Arizona Republic reported.

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". "Anything less than that is unacceptable to our team, our company's leaders and the communities we serve".

INSIDER also uncovered state records of two other disturbing reports at the facility.

The Arizona Department of health services has also released a statement, saying that they are working with the Phoenix Police.

Police are now investigating the case as a potential sexual assault with an anonymous source telling the outlet that staff at the facility did not know the woman was pregnant.

"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.
