I am/was a resident of this facility
I just left the rehab facilities at The Grand and feel I need to share this with anyone contemplating using The Grand for the same services. Things to be made aware of, 1) IF you enter the Grand on a Friday afternoon your rehab may not begin until Monday or later, they may EVALUATE you over the weekend in Occupational Therapy (OT) and Physical Therapy (PT) and call it rehab but physical and occupational rehab in the real sense did not actually happen until Tuesday after I was admitted on Friday. 2) Make SURE you or your loved one is fully assessed immediately upon entering The Grand by their transitional team. By that I mean sit down with the Trasitional Care Coordinator, The Director of Nursing, and the Social worker. I believe after my experience they will really try to make this right and will work hard to not have your loved one fall through the cracks as I did. The number one priority being there was to receive in-patient rehabilitation services for my replaced hip making “staying ahead of my pain” my goal. Make SURE that you or your loved one is immediately placed on a pain medication schedule that ensures that will happen. Do NOT allow anyone to just say, “just tell us when you need it.” You are in no condition two days after major surgery to do that even if you think you are. There needs to be a 4-6 hour regiment that continues 24/7 that ensures that you will be prepared for your pain, treated, and then physically prepared for therapy. It does you OR the therapist zero good when you are receiving your pain meds, as I was, 10 minutes before receiving therapy. Also, while being put in the ICE room to ice down my hip after therapy feels good, I consider that not part of my therapy and would much rather my limited time with my therapist be spent strengthening my hip than me sitting alone icing it. 3) You have a call button for a reason. When you push it...time the response, if it goes beyond 5 minutes for the aide OR the nurse dial 800 (if you can reach the phone) and have them page the nurse to your room. If you STILL have a problem getting someone (like maybe a nurse that does not respond for 1 hour and 24 minutes) either leave the next day as I did OR dial 800 in the morning and ask for The Administratior who I believe absolutely wants/needs to know what is happening in the facility. 4) The food....improved once the director of foods spoke with me and found out that mine was coming stone cold causing my husband to pick up food and bring in several days in a row. 5) If your room does not get swept or trash emptied each day during their housecleaning, call 800 and request it and finally while I was not there for the nursing care as much as I was for the therapeutic care, the nurses are who you see the most frequent while you are there. Beyond your pain level which they do ask, Make SURE that they check your incision EVERY day and may have to rebandage it, and that your vitals are taken a least once every day. For whatever reason I carried a low grade fever the first several days I was there and that needed to be monitored. I WILL say that one of The Grand’s most redeeming features are that many of their nurses are very caring. I am an active 63 year old female that just wanted a head start on therapy and wanted to be close to my daughters’ homes in Dublin. While I, like everyone who has reviewed The Grand found this place to be beautiful and the concept noteworthy. The actual PRACTICES were found well below expectations. What concerns me most is I KNOW that I wasn’t the only one receiving this same care but many older people are hesitant to give a review for various reasons.
