A note by attorney Jeffrey J. Downey about researching nursing homes:

Thank you for visiting my website. Anyone who is considering the admission of a loved one into a nursing home should undertake a review of surveys or other data that will provide a snapshot of some of the issues or problems that the facility is experiencing. Keep in mind that this information can be limited and may not reflect the actual condition of the facility when your loved one is admitted. You should consider personal visits of any facility you are evaluating.

The Virginia Department of Health inspects nursing home facilities including Our Lady of The Valley in Roanoke, Virginia. Periodically they do inspections as complaint surveys which should be public record. State law requires that all nursing facilities obtain a license to operate in Virginia. In Virginia, nursing facilities and inspected every two years under the state licensure and on an average of 12 months under Medicare/Medicaid certification. When the Virginia Office of Licensure and Certification (OLC) conducts inspections and investigations in response to complaints received from the public, the identity of the complainant and the identity of any patient who is the subject of the complaint, or identified therein, shall be treated as confidential and shall not be open to inspection by members of the public. Nothing contained herein shall prevent the OLC or its employees from making reports under §63.2- 1603 et. seq. of the Code of Virginia. (Ref. §32.1- 127.1:03 of the Code of Virginia) You can register a complaint by mailing to Virginia Department of Health, Office of Licensure and Certification, Virginia Department of Health, 9960 Maryland Drive, Suite 401, Henrico, VA 23233-1463 or via email at OLC- Complaints@vdh.virginia.gov or Fax to (804) 527-4503.

For Assisted Living Facilities in the Virginia, you may call directly or send in a complain online at https://www.dss.virginia.gov/about/email_licensing_complaint.cgi. There is a 24-hour number at (888) 832-3858 to report abuse of an elderly person.
