Healthcare Facility Chief Quits After Woman in Coma Gives Birth

Share

It is noted that the board of directors unanimously accepted his resignation.

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.

But the problems pervading the facility won't be solved by firing a single executive. "None of the staff were aware that she was pregnant until she was pretty much giving birth". Staff members reportedly hadn't noticed the patient was pregnant until she went into labor.

Previously, healthcare sources said: "From what I've been told, she was moaning".

A female patient in a vegetative state at a Phoenix private care facility who recently gave birth has been identified as a member of the San Carlos Apache Tribe.

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

The unidentified patient, a 29-year-old Native American woman, has been in a vegetative state for 14 years after a near-drowning incident.

Cesena's daughter almost drowned 14 years ago and was left with a traumatic brain injury that caused her to have hundreds of seizures a day.

In its statement Monday, Hacienda Healthcare said it was continuing to cooperate with the police investigation.

Saudi Arabia: Women will get text messages to confirm if they're divorced
Starting from Sunday, courts will be required to notify women by text on rulings confirming their divorces. In these cases, often referred to as secret divorces, women often end up missing out on alimony payments.

This sign is hung on Jazzmyne Deann Morris's room door at the Hacienda HealthCare facility in Pheoniz, Ariz., where a patient in a vegetative state gave birth on December 29, 2017. "I haven't been able to sleep good at night because of what occurred here", Angela Gomez, a Hacienda patient's mother, said.

Tribal Chairman Terry Rambler said in the release that he was "deeply shocked and horrified" by the incident.

"Trust has been severed, period", she said.

Officials say they are committed to cooperating with the police to "uncover the facts in this deeply disturbing, but unprecedented situation". "It is my hope that justice will be served".

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

The department of health ordered Hacienda to implement "heightened safety measures", spokeswoman Melissa Blasius-Nuanez said.

He explained the organisation is also conducting a "comprehensive internal review" of Hacienda's process, protocols and people to ensure that every resident is safe and well cared for.

The nursing home, meanwhile, had been cited for a privacy deficiency after a male patient told investigators in December 2017 that while he was being bathed by a staff member, other staff members would walk in on him while showering.
