How did this patient hear about The Grand Pavilion? Hospital Social Worker
Reason for Stay: Fractured Vertebrae

Details of Experience:
On September 9th, 2021, Ms. Jean Adams arrived at The Grand Pavilion for Rehabilitation and Nursing in Rockville Centre from Mount Sinai-South Nassau Hospital. Ms. Adams entered the hospital for a fracture of her vertebrae, where after initial treatment, she was told that she would require in-patient rehabilitation to regain mobility and function. Upon recommendation by the hospital social worker, Ms. Adams selected The Grand Pavilion as the place to help her regain those skills. Ms. Adam’s primary goal for her stay at The Grand Pavilion was to be able to return to living safely at home, where she was previously living.

Within 24 hours of arrival at The Grand Pavilion, Ms. Lynch was greeted by many staff members from various departments, including nursing, physicians, therapists, and dieticians. Her physical therapists, Michael and Peter, and her occupational therapist, Katelyn, worked together to develop a comprehensive therapy plan that would allow her to meet her goals. Ms. Adams arrived at The Grand Pavilion requiring maximum assistance with most of her Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), such as bathing and dressing, and minimum assistance with most mobility-related activities.

At the beginning of her stay, Ms. Adams was unable to bear weight while standing. After one week at The Grand Pavilion, Ms. Adams was able to weight bear for close to two minutes. Her bed mobility increased, as well as her ability to ambulate with proper form. Ms. Adams’ ability to tolerate ADLs without significant exertion is more than doubled, increasing from 3-5 minutes at baseline to more than 10 minutes a week later. The assistance she required with performing ADLs decreased from maximum assistance to minimum assistance.

During her second week, Ms. Adams continued to make measurable, steady progress, and the team at The Grand Pavilion determined that she would be able to return home safely. On September 21st, just shy of three weeks at The Grand Pavilion, Ms. Adams happily returned home. The social work department at The Grand Pavilion arranged for Ms. Adams to receive follow-up support services from Royal Home Care to aid her transition back home. Upon discharge, Ms. Adams stated that she was thrilled with her stay here in the community and that she would be leaving a positive review about her time here.

The team at The Grand Pavilion is thrilled that Ms. Adams made such significant progress during her stay here and wishes her a happy and healthy remainder of 2021.
