    Famous nursing facility Hacienda HealthCare in Phoenix, Arizona has come under serious scrutiny after a female patient, who had been in a coma for 14 years, gave birth on 29 December.

    Chief Executive Officer of Hacienda HealthCare Bill Timmons has resigned days after the patient in a coma gave birth to a baby, according to the website Arizona's Family citing the clinic's statement. It is noted that the board of directors unanimously accepted his resignation.

    "We have recently become aware of a deeply disturbing incident involving the health and safety of a Hacienda resident. As an organization, Hacienda HealthCare stands fully committed to getting to the truth of what, for us, represents an unprecedented matter. We are already conducting a comprehensive internal review of our processes, protocols, and people to ensure that every single Hacienda resident is as safe and well cared for as possible", the facility said in a statement, as quoted by Arizona's Family website.
