    Ime writing in concern with the care that is giving patients at valley health care. My father was a recent patient there and was termanally ill with cancer,he had terrible pain all the time and they would never give his medications on time,he also had a coloscopy bag,and the staff would let the bag overflow with waste and it would go all over him and he would have to lay in his own waste for hours.My wife went early one morning only to find my father trembling in pain and crying for someone to give him something for the pain. Also my father had his cell phone stolen from his room one night.So my suggestion for anyone in need for extended care please bypass valley health care center and find a good home that will take care of your loved ones

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others. Medicare evaluates each problem based on 2 scales: the number of residents affected by a problem and the severity of the potential or actual harm to residents based on the problem. We have color coded the matrix below to make it easier to pick out the more severe problems. In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.

  Residents Affected
Severity of the Deficiency Few Some Many
Immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety J K L
Actual harm that is not immediate jeopardy G H I
No actual harm with potential for more than minimal harm that is not immediate jeopardy D E F
No actual harm with potential for minimal harm A B C
