The 29-year-old woman, who's been comatose for more than a decade, gave birth to a baby boy at Hacienda HealthCare in Phoenix on December 29, sparking allegations of sexual abuse and concerns about patient safety.

Phoenix Police served a DNA warrant on all male employees of Hacienda Healthcare in their hunt for the father of a boy born last month to a 29-year-old Apache woman in a vegetative state. 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.

The facility is now under criminal investigation after a woman went into labor in her bed and delivered a healthy baby boy on December 29, 2018 at the care facility for people with intellectual disabilities.

An investigation is underway by Phoenix Police, as controversy mounts over the incident.

"None of the staff were aware that she was pregnant until she was pretty much giving birth", an unnamed source told CBS News affiliate KTVK.

The clinic's chief executive Bill Timmons has now resigned, with his departure unanimously approved by Hacienda HealthCare's board of directors, a company spokesman said.

Two people claiming to be former employees of Hacienda Healthcare have spoken out to detail what the nursing home and its parent company are like after a patient's surprise pregnancy and birth sparked a sexual assault investigation.

A spokesman for Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) called the recent report "deeply troubling" in a statement to The Washington Post.

Orman added that the facility will be cooperating with police and investigators in every way possible.

In a statement, board member Gary Orman said the facility "will accept nothing less than a full accounting of this absolutely horrifying situation".

A Hacienda Healthcare spokesperson told AZ Family that it has been in business for over 50 years and has "an outstanding reputation".

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".

In the wake of the reports, the Arizona Department of Health Services said new safety measures have been implemented. Most involve fire drill and evacuation preparation or Medicaid eligibility. The employee was sacked. "But things like this don't happen without someone either knowing about it or should have known about it", Solomon said.

She gave birth on New Year's Eve sparking an investigation into who was responsible for the sexual assault. "I myself have come in a back way many times with no one noticing me", the caregiver said. "I haven't been able to sleep well at night because of what occurred here", a mother, Angela Gomez, told CBS.
