Following news of a woman in a vegetative state giving birth, families of patients at Hacienda HealthCare are demanding answers.

"While federal and state privacy laws prohibit us from publicly discussing a patient's health or case, Hacienda has and will continue to cooperate fully with law enforcement and all the relevant regulatory agencies regarding this matter", Hacienda said in its statement. Awake but immobile, and apparently unaware, her universe consisted mostly of a room at a Phoenix Hacienda HealthCare facility where she received round-the-clock care.

Azfamily.com first reported that the woman, in a vegetative state after a near-drowning, delivered a baby on 29 December.

When asked about the warrant, a police spokesman said only that the investigation was ongoing.

She gave birth in late December even though she's been comatose at a healthcare facility for more than a decade.

"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.

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".

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

Govenor Doug Ducey's office has called the situation "deeply troubling". The Arizona Department of Economic Security has since conducted a health and well-being check on all other patients at the facility.

On its website, Hacienda describes itself as "Arizona's leading provider of specialized health care services for medically fragile and chronically ill infants, children, teens, and young adults as well as those with intellectual and developmental disabilities".

The company, which says it is cooperating with police, provides services ranging from day programs to long-term residential care for more than 2,500 patients annually.

The state's online complaint database for care facilities shows multiple complaints about Hacienda de Los Angeles going back to 2013. Most involve fire drill and evacuation preparation or Medicaid eligibility.

One staff member was sacked for making repeated inappropriate sexual comments to patients. That employee was later fired.

Hacienda HealthCare said it welcomed the DNA testing of employees. "But things like this don't happen without someone either knowing about it or should have known about it", Solomon said.

Sources also told ABC 15 in another report that investigators are looking into whether the patient suffered multiple sexual assaults, "including assaults on different parts of the body".

"I can't think of a legitimate reason not to call it what it is", he said.
