Sources tell ABC15 that investigators are hoping to DNA test the staff at Hacienda Healthcare and are evaluating other patients at the establishment.

"My heart hurts, my chest hurts".

"From what I've been told, she was moaning", a source told Phoenix CBS affiliate KPHO.

The CEO of Hacienda Healthcare has stepped down amid an investigation into the sexual assault of a woman who gave birth while in a vegetative state.

According to NBC News, a Phoenix woman, who is unable to move or speak, gave birth to a baby boy on December 29, at the Hacienda HealthCare facility. Troublingly, the alleged incidents weren't reported to the facility's administrators until a month after they occurred.

It was easy for police to assume the patient was raped and impregnated during her vulnerable state.

The facility provides intermediate care for patients with intellectual disabilities.

A Phoenix police spokesman told The Washington Post an investigation has been opened into the case. However, Spokeswoman Nancy Salmon of Hacienda Healthcare attempted to do damage control with the following statement.

Hacienda spokesman David Leibowitz said the facility had recently become aware of a "deeply disturbing incident" involving one of its residents.

The Arizona Department of Health Services confirmed that a birth had taken place at the facility, and inspectors had checked on the patients there.

Karina Cesena/Parent of Hacienda HealthCare Patient: "We don't understand why something of this magnitude could happen, and then now everybody wants to be quiet about it", says Karina Cesena, another parent of a Hacienda HealthCare patient. "And we will do everything in our power to ensure the safety of every single one of our patients and our employees".

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. "Anything less than that is unacceptable to our team, our company's leaders and the communities we serve", the statement continued.
