The incident reportedly occurred at a Phoenix nursing facility, Hacienda HealthCare in the American state of Arizona, according to the RT News.

The outlet also reported that the patient has been in a vegetative state for at least a decade after almost drowning. The Phoenix Police are investigating this sexual abuse case.

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

In a statement released to PEOPLE on Friday, Hacienda HealthCare spokesman David Leibowitz said the organisation, which runs the facility, was cooperating with authorities, but declined to divulge the exact nature of the underlying incident. According to the local station's unidentified source, the facility staff had no idea the patient was pregnant until she began moaning as she went into labor.

Man authorities believe shot Texas girl charged with murder
O'Neal and a Houston police officer, Kenneth Miles , brought a cashier's check to the family last week to pay for the funeral. A GoFundMe account set up to help cover funeral costs has raised more than $82,000 from almost 3,000 donors.

Hacienda board executive vice president Gary Orman said the facility "will accept nothing less than a full accounting of this absolutely horrifying situation".

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

The woman had been raped multiple times while being cared for at the Arizona centre, reports AzFamily.com. But one from December 2013 outlines an allegation that a staff member made inappropriate sexual comments about four patients.

It would be the police who would lead DNA testing to figure out who fathered the baby, Solomon said, adding that it would be hard for Hacienda to escape liability.

"Whether it's an employee or someone from the outside, the facility has an obligation to protect residents".

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.

And we knew not to mess with that temper because people got fired".

"Our nation is very much in denial about how widespread the problem of sexual abuse is - especially when you have a population that does not fit the mainstream criteria as a sexual being", Kristen Houser, spokesperson for the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, told Vox. "I myself have come in a back way many times with no one noticing me", the caregiver said.
