The resignation of Bill Timmons, the longtime chief executive officer of Hacienda Healthcare, was "accepted unanimously" by the board of directors, company spokesman David Leibowitz said in a statement released Monday, reports Phoenix TV station KPHO. No one knew she was pregnant and healthcare staff were initially unsure why she was moaning, the reports said.

Police have launched a sexual assault investigation into the incident.

Karina Cesena told a Phoenix news outlet, "I do not [know if my daughter was victimised], but I do ask her, and she can answer yes or no".

"During this time, the agency has required heightened safety measures be implemented at the facility including increased staff presence during patient interactions, increased monitoring of the patient care areas, and increased security measures with respect to visitors at the facility", said a spokesperson for the department.

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

A Phoenix Police Department spokesman, Sgt. Tommy Thompson, said the "the matter is under investigation".

The first day at office Brazil's Bolsonaro targets minority teams
LGBT activist Symmy Larrat told the outlet that she is expecting unequal treatment from Bolsonaro's administration. That body just disappeared, just like that. "We are going to integrate these citizens and respect all Brazilians".

A patient who had been in care at the facility for more than 10 years gave birth on December 29, a source told KPNX. Hacienda HealthCare, which has 40 programs that serve more than 2,500 people a year in Arizona, according to its website, did not immediately respond to calls and messages seeking comment.

No one has been arrested in connection with the incident, and it's unclear if police have identified any suspects.

Gov. Doug Ducey's office released a statement saying the reports are "deeply troubling".

Hacienda HealthCare was founded five decades ago.

Hacienda describes itself as Arizona's "leading provider of specialised health care services for medically fragile and chronically ill infants, children, teens, and young adults as well as those with intellectual and developmental disabilities".

She demands 24-hour care, indicating that numerous facility's staff would have access to her room, as she is incapable of any communication or voluntary movement. For example, an investigation in 2013 found that a staff member had made "inappropriate, sexual statements" about four clients.
