Coma Patient in Phoenix Health Facility Gives Birth to Baby Boy

Hacienda Health Care where a patient gave birth

The woman, who has remained nameless, was a victim of a near-drowning accident "at least a decade ago".

A woman in a vegetative state for years has given birth to a boy, prompting an investigation by law enforcement and health agencies. They did not specifically confirm the reported pregnancy and birth.

Despite having received round the clock care, a source told AZ Family that, 'None of the staff were aware that she was pregnant until she was pretty much giving birth'. "And they didn't know what was wrong with her".

So far, the specific condition of the woman and her baby have not been released.

The police have been investigating sexual harassment on a vulnerable patient.

The state's Department of Economic Security, a social service agency whose functions include serving disabled people, said it performed health and safety checks on all of the residents at the Hacienda facility after the birth was reported and is working with police on their investigation.

The woman is a patient in a clinic run by Hacienda HealthCare near Phoenix.

A government, Medicare database for the facility now ranks Hacienda with one out of five possible stars - "much below average" - in the overall category.

A Phoenix police spokesman, Sgt Tommy Thompson, said the "the matter is under investigation".

She reportedly gave birth on December 29 at the Hacienda HealthCare facility in Phoenix Arizona.

On its website, Hacienda HealthCare says, "Our mission is to provide every person we are given the opportunity to serve, exceptional and compassionate care 24/7 in order to maximize their potential while continuing to address unmet health care needs throughout Arizona".

Reviews are now being conducted and Police are investigating but have declined to confirm if they're looking at a possible sex crime. As a Healthcare provider, we can not comment on any patient due to Federal and State privacy laws.

Governor Doug Ducey's office released a statement saying the reports are "deeply troubling". "Anything less than that is unacceptable to our team, our company's leaders and the communities we serve". "We are aware of this situation and are actively working with local law enforcement in their criminal investigation", the department added. "During this time, the agency has required heightened safety measures be implemented at the facility including increased staff presence during patient interactions, increased monitoring of the patient care areas, and increased security measures with respect to visitors at the facility".

INSIDER has since reviewed Arizona Department of Health Services public records that reveal another disturbing incident that inspectors cited the for facility in 2017.
