PHOENIX, Ariz. (KNWA) – Hacienda Healthcare, 1402 E South Mountain Ave, in Arizona, is a long-term healthcare facility the place a lady in a coma lately gave start.
The facility will stay open after its house owners agreed to permit the state to supervise operations.
A spokesman for Arizona’s Governor, Doug Ducey, stated Hacienda Healthcare officers have agreed to just accept voluntary regulation, which suggests 37 intellectually disabled sufferers there might be allowed to remain.
“Moving the medically fragile community is the option of last resort,” The Arizona Department of Health Services stated in a press release.
“Transferring them to another facility could result in psychological physical harm and even death,” Arizona State Health Services Director Dr. Cara Christ stated.
The announcement to maintain the ability open got here a day after Hacienda stated it was closing its heart for the intellectually disabled as a result of protecting it open was “not sustainable.”
The lady who lately gave start to a child boy is in her late 20s and has been a affected person there since she was a toddler.
Police later arrested a nurse after a DNA take a look at confirmed a match between him and the newborn.
