"Trust has been broken".

Phoenix police on Saturday were investigating reports of a sexual assault after a woman who has been hospitalized in a vegetative state for the past decade gave birth.

The source told the network that no-one knew the longtime patient of Hacienda Healthcare in Phoenix was pregnant until she began moaning shortly before going into labor.

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.

China: Man stabs 20 children in attack at Beijing school
In November, five people were killed when a vehicle plowed into a crowd of children outside a northeastern Chinese kindergarten. A doctor at the hospital reportedly posted on social media how several operations had been "paused" to save the school kids.

On Friday, KPHO-TV reported claims from sources that a woman in the facility who had been in a vegetative state after almost drowning more than a decade ago had given birth to a baby boy in December.

The source added the patient required around-the-clock care and many would have access to her room.

"This matter is now under investigation by the Phoenix Police Department", Sergeant Tommy Thompson told Reuters when asked about the media reports.

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

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.

In the statement, DHS spokesperson Melissa Blasius-Nuanez said the agency immediately initiated an onsite complaint investigation to "ensure the health and safety of the patients and ensure the facility is in compliance with all state laws and regulations".

The organization, he said, is 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 Arizona Department of Health Service and the Arizona Department of Economic security have also released statements and both organisations are conducting investigations into the incident and conditions at the facility. "Anything less than that is unacceptable to our team, our company's leaders and the communities we serve", the statement continued.
