"As soon as I saw it, I saw it on the news, my body started shaking".

A Hacienda HealthCare facility in Phoenix, Arizona. He couldn't say anything. Employees only realized that the woman was pregnant when she began to make moaning sounds while she was delivering the baby.

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

"I was scared", the ex-manager recalled.

"I wasn't there", Meyers said.

"Trust has been severed, period", she said. "I clearly don't have firsthand knowledge of what happened". "Timmons' resignation was accepted unanimously by the Hacienda Board of Directors".

Gary Orman, the executive vice president of the company's board, said it would "accept nothing less than a full accounting of this absolutely horrifying situation".

The reported birth - and the sexual assault on a vulnerable individual that must have preceded it - has cast a harsh glare on conditions at a nonprofit organization that bills itself as a leading provider of health care for Phoenix's medically fragile.

Trump Says He ‘May Declare a National Emergency’ to Build Wall
Gutfeld said that Trump should discuss the "crux" of Democrats' arguments against a border wall, that one would be " immoral ". ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC all confirmed Monday they would carry the president's speech at 9 p.m.

She had been left in a vegetative state (awake but with no signs of awareness) for over 10 years after nearly drowning.

Hacienda HealthCare said it was fully co-operating with the authorities. In 2013, a male employee was found to have made sexually explicit remarks to patients, though no physical or sexual abuse allegations were made and the employee was sacked. "He stated that he does not know why staff come and go in the shower room when he does not have any clothes on".

Now, any male staff entering a female patient's room must be accompanied by a female staff member. It has "now become a bad habit and is a dignity problem", according to the state's report.

But Cesena says neither she nor the other parents' families have been given any details about what those extra security procedures are. It's also unclear if staff members at the Hacienda de Los Angeles facility were unaware of the pregnancy until the birth. Troublingly, the alleged incidents weren't reported to the facility's administrators until a month after they occurred.

The tribe confirmed the events surrounding the birth at Hacienda HealthCare in a press release obtained by ABC15, saying the patient "has been in a persistent vegetative state and coma for over a decade".

Both staffers "have been counseled on privacy during showering residents", and the report added that "all direct care staff" would receive more training in light of the allegations.

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

The facility received a "below average" health inspection rating in 2017, according to the Medicare website.
