How did this patient hear about The Grand Pavilion: The Social Work team at St. Francis Hospital referred him to GP


Details of Experience:
Joseph C. was admitted to St. Francis Hospital due to METAPNEUMOVIRUS PNEUMONIA (Respiratory Infection) on April 10th, 2020. Upon discharge, the patient was transferred to The Grand Pavilion on April 16th with generalized muscle weakness and difficulty walking. Upon arrival at the Grand Pavilion, Mr. Castora was welcomed and made comfortable by members of our clinical team including Concierge, Nursing, Rehab, and Social Work.

Mr. C. was greeted and evaluated by our dedicated therapy team where it was determined that he was in the need of intense, consistent physical, and occupational therapy. The patient had decreased performance with ADLs (activities of daily living), was not able to ambulate safely, and had decreased muscle strength.

It was the staff’s pleasure to work alongside this determined, self-motivated patient, who strived to reach his goals. Mr. C. always had something positive to offer and showed appreciation to the dedicated staff. His family sent pizza and drinks to our hard-working staff, to show appreciation for all that they did during this unprecedented time.

As this patient worked consistently to reach his goals, it was to no one’s surprise that he was enjoying great progress and was able to ambulate 250 feet, while maintaining good standing balance. Mr. C. very much appreciated all the staff that cared for him and rated us a 10/10. The Grand Pavilion is delighted to assist Mr. C. home, in which he returned home happy and very healthy on July 2nd!

The Grand Pavilion staff offers well wishes and continued health prayers for Mr. C. and is proud of the challenges he conquered and the goals that he reached.
