The incident also prompted Hacienda HealthCare CEO Bill Timmons to resign yesterday, after the incident put a spotlight on the safety of long-term care settings for patients who are severely disabled or incapacitated. "I haven't been able to sleep good at night because of what occurred here", another mother, Angela Gomez said.
A Hacienda board member says the facility "will accept nothing less than a full accounting of this absolutely horrifying situation".
His resignation was accepted unanimously by the board of directors.
Hacienda officials have called the situation "a deeply disturbing incident" and said they are cooperating with law enforcement and state agencies.
The investigation prompted outrage nationwide last week after Arizona's Family revealed a 29-year-old Native American woman living in a yearslong vegetative state had been impregnated at the facility.
The woman said not one person reported the incident out of fear, adding that it is likely other forms of abuse took place over the years. "You can hook these up through an Internet signal in nursing homes", Weninger said.

Phoenix police say the matter is under investigation. "He stated it has happened on many occasions".
Other family members of patients told the news station that they'd noticed more security guards and a new protocol requiring male staffers to be accompanied by female staffers if they go into a female patient's room.
"She stated it has now become a bad habit and a dignity problem", the document states.
Micheaels also gave an update on the newborn writing, "The family would like me to convey that the baby boy has been born into a loving family and will be well cared for". "A lot of the staff is very hush-hush", she said.
Police are now investigating the case as a potential sexual assault with an anonymous source telling the outlet that staff at the facility did not know the woman was pregnant. In January 2018, state investigators said the issues "have been corrected", People reported.
The 29-year-old woman, who's been comatose for more than a decade, gave birth to a baby boy at Hacienda HealthCare in Phoenix on December 29, sparking allegations of sexual abuse and concerns about patient safety.
Behind closed doors he was told about a non-verbal male in a bed at the facility with concerns female nurses were standing around his bed talking about his genitals. Some of the patients have been there for decades, said state records.
