Equipment was top-rate, rooms retrofitted with Covid reverse circulation ducts, etc. But 2 cases no gloves, 2 cases no masks (until told), hands cleaned 4 seconds (though gloves usually worn), hands and equipment usually done with alcohol-based cleaning solution, no soap-based, former good for bacteria but only soap good for Covid (doubt anyone there knew that, doctors included), thermometer probably not soap cleaned, food utensils don't know. Staff talking over my food (through mask) once 1 foot away, three times 3-4 feet away, including once by head doctor who coughed twice through his mask as I ate. Community pen for signing releases (which I refused, giving verbal), glasses case offered twice but refused (they don't know that eyes are a pathway in for Covid). Head doctor offered to shake bare hands on my leaving, which I politely said I shouldn't. Would you eat here if this were a public restaurant? Am self-quarentining for 2 weeks; will add more if I come down. Otherwise, great, friendly, helpful, always attentive (if woefully ignorant) staff.

One of the top centers in the NY/NJ Metro area. Large enough to offer all services yet you feel like you receive very personalized attention. Easy to access the facility and navigate, a very helpful staff and doctors who have always spent enough time to discuss issues thoroughly.

The hospital does not take patient feedback or satisfaction seriously. I spoke with the person who handles customer complaints about a very bad experience with a nurse, they then went ahead and scheduled the that same nurse for my procedure. I complained again, but nothing was done. The radiologist promised the results in 2-3 business days, 6 business days later I continue to get the run around from the pathology department, with no answers to when I will get the results. They promise to call back but no one does. I would not recommend this hospital if you want your test results in a timely fashion or if you expect they take patient care and feedback seriously.

Details:

I went to Valley Hospital Emergency room on Monday, June 18th for extreme pain in my lower back, a super fast growing lump on my side abdomen and a super fast growing lump on my upper thigh. I was admitted into the ER after waiting for an hour then after waiting another hour to be seen, the doctor comes in, touches one lump and says its probably an infection you'll be fine, go see a Rheumatologist for the pain in your back. Not 1 test was administered and he even had the audacity to say that if they took blood they couldnt get it back fast enough so he was sending me home. I went home that night and the next morning, the pain and lumps had tripled and were now bright red and warm to the touch. So, I went to my normal doctor and they immediately told me to go to the emergency room to get tests performed. This time I went to Hackensack ER. They were great, they had a sense of urgency when they saw what the lumps, took blood and urine and came back with a diagnosis of Cellulitis which is an infection that can be fatal if not treated immediately. Since the Dr. at Valley took no time to figure out what was wrong with me, I was nearly in septic shock by the time I got to Hackensack. Do not go to the ER at VALLEY! They are awful and unless you're bleeding they don't give you the time of day. I would be dead right now if I had listened to that doctor!
