An Arizona woman in a vegetative state gave birth last month in a long-term care facility, and police are investigating the incident.
A source familiar with the situation previously told AZ Family that "none of the staff were aware that she was pregnant until she was pretty much giving birth".
Police are continuing a criminal investigation into the scandal.
The woman, who was incapacitated in a drowning incident, was a patient at Hacienda Healthcare when she went into labor on December 29 and delivered a baby boy, according to local media.
"And they didn't know what was wrong with her", the source said.
"Everybody was up in shock", Karina Cesena, whose 22-year-old daughter, Jazzmyne, is a patient at the Hacienda Healthcare facility, told CBS News.
"This matter is now under investigation by the Phoenix Police Department", Sergeant Tommy Thompson told Reuters when asked about the media reports.
A spokesperson for Hacienda HealthCare did not immediately return Fox News' request for comment Tuesday.
"As an organization, Hacienda HealthCare stands fully committed to getting to the truth of what, for us, represents an unprecedented matter", David Leibowitz, spokesman for Hacienda HealthCare, said in a statement released to ABC News.
Orman continued: "And we will do everything in our power to ensure the safety of every single one of our patients and our employees".
Police have made no arrests so far and it remains unclear if they have identified any suspects yet in their investigation.
A spokesman for Arizona Governor Doug Ducey said the reports were "deeply troubling" and that the state was re-evaluating its contract and regulatory authority over Hacienda Healthcare to tighten up patient safety measures. Hacienda was given a year to fix the "defects" in staff training and staff treatment of patients or be removed from the Medicare roster. Under his leadership, Hacienda added over three dozen programs to provide medical and therapeutic services for medically fragile infants, children and young adults as well as individuals who have developmental and intellectual disabilities.
One staff member was sacked for making repeated inappropriate sexual comments to patients.
