Hacienda HealthCare Misses Deadline For Oversight Agreement
The state of Arizona ordered a long-term care facility where an incapacitated woman was sexually assaulted to have a third party oversee operations. But, the two companies couldn’t reach an expected agreement.
The Indiana-based oversight company called Benchmark released a statement last week saying it would assess the current operations at Hacienda HealthCare.
This comes after a 29-year-old woman was raped and impregnated while she was under Hacienda’s care.
A former nurse at the facility has been charged with sexual assault and pleaded not guilty.
In a statement, Hacienda said it wasn’t able to reach a final contract with the third-party oversight company by the state-imposed deadline.
The state said in a statement the agencies demand Hacienda outline in detail its plan to comply with all oversight directives, including a third-party manager, by the end of this week.
