  • Coma Patient in Phoenix Health Facility Gives Birth to Baby Boy

Micheaels also gave an update on the newborn writing, "The family would like me to convey that the baby boy has been born into a loving family and will be well cared for". However, Spokeswoman Nancy Salmon of Hacienda Healthcare attempted to do damage control with the following statement.

It has been learned that a woman in a vegetative state at a Phoenix-area nursing facility was sexually assaulted after giving birth to a baby boy on Saturday.

"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.

The New York Times and NBC News reported that the Phoenix Police Department had opened an investigation into allegations involving the facility but the agency would not discuss the details of the case or how long they had been looking into it.

Jazzmyne has seizures every day and requires round-the-clock care.

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".

After the incident, she was "horrified" about his reaction and said that "by law, we are supposed to report things like that".


Her identity hasn't been reported, and it's not known if she has a family or a guardian.

The boss of a private clinic in the USA has resigned after a woman in a vegetative state reportedly gave birth. It is also unclear if staff members at the Hacienda de Los Angeles facility were unaware of the pregnancy until the birth.

Phoenix police say the matter is under investigation. Sadly, one of her caretakers was not to be trusted and took advantage of her. Employees did not know that the patient was pregnant.

Phoenix police so far have declined comment. "I stay in her room", Cesena told As It Happens host Carol Off.

Now, any male staff entering a female patient's room must be accompanied by a female staff member.

In addition to working with police, state officials are "re-evaluating the state's contract and regulatory authority as it relates to this facility and have been working closely with state agencies to ensure all necessary safety measures are in place", Patrick Ptak, a spokesperson for Ducey, R, said in a statement.

Hacienda HealthCare, which tends to medically fragile children and young adults in Arizona has an admirable motto: "In special lives, we make a difference". For example, an investigation in 2013 found that a staff member had made "inappropriate, sexual statements" about four clients.
