Officials with Hacienda Healthcare have issued a statement, amidst mounting controversy over a female patient in vegetative state who gave birth recently.

The unidentified patient, a 29-year-old Native American woman, has been in a vegetative state for 14 years after a near-drowning incident. An unidentified source told AZFamily that Hacienda staff was not aware she was pregnant until she gave birth.

A Phoenix police spokesman said that "the matter is now under investigation" but declined to give any further details of the case.

"When you have a loved one committed to palliative care, when they are most vulnerable and dependent upon others, you trust their caretakers", he said Tuesday. "The family would like me to convey that the baby boy has been born into a loving family and will be well cared for".

Martin Solomon, a personal injury attorney in Phoenix whose clients are mostly adult victims of abuse and neglect, said any lawyer representing the woman should call for all pertinent medical records, a list of current and former employees and any past litigation involving Hacienda.

Cops have served a search warrant to obtain samples from every male employee at Hacienda HealthCare in the US.

She said no one reported that incident exclusively out of fear, and she believes there's been other abuse throughout the years.

The outlet also reported that the patient has been in a vegetative state for at least a decade after almost drowning.

CEO of disgraced Arizona care facility resigns after vegetative patient gives birth The CEO of an Arizona care center where a woman in a vegetative state for over a decade gave birth to a child last month has resigned.

In the company's statement Hacienda HealthCare board member Gary Orman promised a full probe into the case.

"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".

Police have yet to disclose any information about suspects at the time.

A mother of another patient at the facility posted a sign to her daughter's door saying that no men, including staffers, are allowed in until the police find the rapist.

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

"From what I've been told she was moaning and they didn't know what was wrong with her".

The Arizona Department of Health Services has confirmed the patient who was allegedly raped was a resident at Hacienda Healthcare in Phoenix, Arizona.
