Advance Directives

Advance Directives are instructions to your healthcare providers to be used at some future time when you are unable to communicate your wishes for care. Specifically, Advance Directives express your beliefs and wishes on important issues related to “lifesaving” care.

The best time to create your Advance Directive is before you enter the hospital, and after a careful discussion with your family and/or friends who will be in charge of your decisions and care.

Infection Prevention 

The Infection Prevention Department at Valley Regional Hospital has a singular focus to keep our patients safe by preventing healthcare-acquired infections (HAI). At VRH, our infection prevention experts diligently work to keep our patients and caregivers safe through a rigorous prevention program by:

• Identifying risks for infection.
• Recommending ways to prevent infection and monitor outcomes.
• Teaching and enforcing proper hygiene methods to all employees.
• Consulting on isolation precautions and other infection control issues.

Our entire staff, both clinical and non-clinical roles, plays a key role in the number of infections as low as possible.

Social Services 

We know how confusing getting the help you need for your family can be, which is why we provide case coordination services.


Working with doctors and other clinical staff, our staff will assess your needs, help to coordinate your care, and help you make important decisions. Our professional Case Management team consists of two professional registered nurses and a social worker that works collaboratively to ensure your hospital stay is a positive experience and your discharge plan is appropriate. We can help with a broad range of concerns, like questions about your care, financial responsibilities, Advance Directives, or referrals for equipment or services you might need upon discharge.

Our medical social worker is available to all patients and their families for crisis intervention, counseling, and discharge planning. Just ask a nurse or your doctor to arrange a meeting.
