The big issue with this facility is a complete lack of transparency with respect to insurance. It is registered as in network for United Healthcare, but the physician who treated me in the emergency room was out of network. They do not tell you this, and indeed, confirmed that they are in network when I checked in. I only found out when I received a substantial bill for out of network services.

To sum it up: Don t go. If you have a choice between there and nowhere, choose nowhere. If that is the only place that your ob/gyn delivers, find a new ob/gyn(we will be). I m not sure where the problems originate from. We think it s the hospital s antiquated policies and procedures. I do have to stay that the nurses were very nice. They did their best. They were very professional and did a very good job of making excuses for EVERYTHING that happened or did not happen. They refused to listen to anything we said. They would stand there and act like they were listening, but then they would tell us what they were going to do, even if it was in direct contradiction to what we just asked. The most important thing to them was the monitors. But, when the baby s heartbeat disappeared off of the monitor NO ONE came to fix it. My wife and I tried for over 30 minutes to try and find the baby s heartbeat with the monitor and we couldn t do it. Finally, our nurse came back in. While she was fixing the monitor, another nurse FINALLY popped her head in and commented, Oh, I wasn t sure if you were in here or not. Our nurse turned and looked at us and said, Was that the first time they checked on you? Then, the excuse, I guess the baby wasn t off of the monitor for that long. They kept refusing to give an epidural. After a LOT of pleading and lot of excuse making by nurses, they finally gave the epidural. My wife informed them that she is extremely sensitive to epidurals and wanted a low-dose. Shortly after the epidural was placed, she started to struggle staying conscious and breathing. We asked for the eipdural dose to be lowered. The nurse said that wasn t a decision that she could make and she didn t have the power to adjust the machine. She left the room, and when she came back, she informed us that the anesthesiologist would not lower the dosage. It was the correct dosage for my wife s height and weight. She continued to have troubles. The doctor came in and told the nurse that the baby was a little twisted, and my wife needed to lay on her side to help turn the baby. The nurse propped my wife on her side and left. My wife s blood pressure IMMEDIATELY plummeted. Her O2 levels started declining. There were alarms going off all over her equipment. No one responded. She told me, I m going to pass out. I pushed the nurse call button. Finally someone came on and I told them what was happening. They came running in, placed my wife up, and put on oxygen. The nurse explained that in an emergency, I should just yank the cords out of the wall, then they would come. I shudder to think of what would have happened had I not been there. My wife was crashing, the machines knew it, the nurses didn t respond. Is this because they have old machines, and they have learned to tune out all of the alarms? My wife completed her dilation. There wasn t a doctor there to help with the delivery. They turned off the pitocin so she wouldn t deliver. And then, they left. We had no one in the room for about an hour after my wife was complete. We planned on delivering the baby ourselves. Finally, a nurse came in and checked my wife. It was apparent that delivery was imminent, so she called the front desk and prepared to catch. The doctor came in after the head was delivered. The nurses were relieved, this meant they didn t need to fill out an incident report on a nurse delivered baby. The doctor was in the room for about all of thirty seconds and didn t even wait for my wife to have a contraction to pull the baby the rest of the way out. We also found out that they were afraid that my wife might hemorrhage because this was her fifth child. So, one nurse asked the other if she had the cytotec in her pocket. We never knew that they were worried about that. Of course, after the baby was delivered all of the nurses disappeared. If my wife was a hemorrhage risk wouldn't it be smart to have someone in the room?

This facility gives credence to the all too frequently heard saying - "You know where to get good medical care in Las Vegas? The airport!" I had not only a poor experience at Spring Valley but a dangerous one. Brought in by ambulance with a bowel obstruction, I was in pretty bad shape. I too was left in my own filth until asking for supplies to get cleaned up and brush my teeth. My husband actually did most of the work. At one point, I was about to vomit and told the woman in the room to get me the tray, she just said, "I'm in housekeeping." Being almost 65, I should have been instructed to walk to avoid blood clots. Although I had NG tube and an IV, both could have easily been capped off making exercise possible. Instead they opted for injections into my stomach to thin my blood. Once Again, it was my husband who got me out of bed and had me walk in place to get my blood circulating. He insisted that they see to it I walk. They didn't but he did. I take a beta blocker for blood pressure and to slow down my heart rate. It was not administered. I layed in the bed with my heart rate over 100. The night before I was discharged, they gave me my beta blocker. The next morning they were going to give it to me again! I protested and asked them to look at my numbers as my heart rate had dropped to 74. The nurse said, "Well it says on this paper to give it to you." I again protested. Then the nurse said, "Oh, this other paper it does say that you've already had it and we wouldn't want you to "bottom out". Then she told the student nurse, "Always ask your patients before giving medication." Finally, I was released and given a prescription for antibiotics. My husband took it to a local pharmacy and they informed him that there was "no such dosage for this medication". I've been waiting 3 days for them to return the call to the pharmacy. Don't ever go there!! Those people can just might kill you.

The staff provided little to no follow up. After being admitted, the assigned Dr was not professional and very detached.

This hospital let my Dad die. He was there the week before he died in the ICU and was sent home. Came back a week later. For an entire 24 hours they ran zero tests and they knew he was bleeding internally. My mother never saw or spoke with a doctor the entire 24 hours he was admitted before dying. One hour before he died they called and said they were doing an ultrasound to find the bleeding. My mother called back 1 1/2 hours later to ask how the test went and they informed her he was dead. They didn't even call her first. I had to wait for the death certificate to even get a clue how he died. My Dad bled to death; blood coming out his mouth when he coded and they did nothing for an entire day. When they finally got around to it, it was too late. My mother is in too much pain to pursue and my hands are tied. Worst hospital ever. Don't allow your loved ones to come here.
