A sincere request

PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM VALLEY HOSPITAL

A highly incompetent staff runs the show.

My fiancée had banged her head very badly after a fall, and I had rushed her to the nearest ER, which happened to be Valley Hospital. She had also got a gash on her left temple and some scrapes here and there. She started complaining of severe headache almost instantaneously. We were made to sit in the ER and were told someone would come. I also informed a nurse to please look at her immediately since she had a deep cut and was complaining of headaches and all she did was give a smile, and off she went. Finally, after two hours we were taken in, and all the minor scrapes and the gash was addressed. Everything was done , but scans were not ordered. I had to rush my fiancée to another hospital, where they did an emergency scan which revealed a mild internal injury and a blood clot. She required five days of treatment and a few months of anti-clotting medications. This would not have been the case if she was given proper care. Valley Hospital, if you cannot run the show, then please shutter it. You are not fit to be called a hospital.

I was admitted to Valley Hospital for a C3-C4 fusion a few months back. I have nothing but appreciation for the staff. I must admit that I was worried about visiting this hospital because of its negative reputation. However, I was in for a pleasant surprise. All my worries were laid to rest when I met with the team that was going to do my surgery and take care of me afterward. They were very knowledgeable and very friendly. I must say that everyone at this hospital exceeded my expectations. I thank the medical team for making my stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible!

My mother had an appointment at this hospital, and she started getting anxiety attacks. However, the staff ensured that she was relaxed and comfortable. A nurse also went and sat next to her and started talking about her dress and other simple things which took her mind off the appointment. Every single member of the medical team had a very refreshing and positive attitude. Faye, (if I have got the name correctly) was the best, according to my mom. The doctor and anesthesiologists also were great and treated her well. This was the most welcoming and respectful staff that we have encountered.

I grade the nurses, CNAs, techs, and doctors at Valley Hospital into three categories – the good, the bad, and the worst. There are a high number of medical staff in the good category and very few in the bad category. There is only one idiot in the worst category, and it is Dr. Mensah. This dumbass of a doctor needs to be retrained. This fellow does not know anything!!! The icing on the cake is the fact this bozo is the laziest doctor around. As if these qualities were not enough, he finds happiness in discharging patients without any prescriptions or notes. He also contradicts other doctors!!!! Stay away from him when you visit this hospital.

I was visiting relatives in Las Vegas when I suddenly ended up with pneumonia. I was brought to Valley Hospital and was admitted and had to stay for a week followed by rehab for another week. During the stay, I was provided excellent care by a highly skilled team of professionals. They were compassionate and courteous. I would recommend this wonderful hospital to everyone!!

This hospital is great, and the people running this hospital are great. I had a lupus flare while I was in Vegas with a resultant swollen face as well as tongue and throat. Everyone in the emergency room ranging from the triage nurse to the doctors were absolutely amazing. They were attentive and explained everything in great detail. I am glad about the treatment which I got. Thanks to everyone.

When it comes to treatment, Valley hospital is very good, and a highly skilled team takes care of you. My issue is something else. I was not given any diagnosis and asked to follow up with a cardiologist, which was good except for a small issue---the cardiologist’s number does not exist. I was referred to one Dr. Paul Kalekas, but he does not have an office at the address these people gave me. Even the number to contact him was wrong. Frustrated, I ended up doing personal research and found that I had potassium deficiency which was endorsed by my PCP. Thanks to Google, I saved some bucks.
