Hacienda HealthCare says investigators served a warrant Tuesday, asking for DNA samples from male employees.

Hacienda CEO Bill Timmons stepped down Monday, spokesman David Leibowitz said.

A near-drowning had left the woman in a persistent vegetative state for almost a decade.

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.

Hacienda board executive vice president Gary Orman said the facility "will accept nothing less than a full accounting of this absolutely horrifying situation".

Rep. Jeff Weninger told KPHO one idea would be to allow families to install cameras in the rooms of their loved ones so they could be monitored remotely.
