How did this patient hear about The Grand Pavilion: He was referred to the Grand Pavilion by his Social Worker from St. John’s Riverside Hospital.
Details of Experience:
Michael Costa was admitted to The Grand Pavilion on June 9, 2020, due to a fracture of the left tibia, generalized muscle weakness and difficulty walking. Upon arrival to The Grand Pavilion, Mr. Costa was welcomed and made comfortable by members of our clinical team including: Concierge, Nursing, Rehab and Social Work.
The patient was evaluated by our dedicated therapy team who determined that Mr. Costa was in the need of intense physical and occupational therapy. The patient had decreased performance with ADL’S (activities of daily living), was not able to ambulate safely and had decreased muscle strength.
The Rehabilitation team developed a customized treatment plan for Mr. Costa, including short-term and long-term goals. These goals included ambulation, bed mobility and hygiene / grooming tasks, all with minimal assistance. Mr. Costa always had something positive to say to both staff and his fellow patients. Mr. Costa stated, “The people here are great; they work very hard and I wish I can do more for the staff.” Mr. Costa also demonstrated appreciation for his nursing team, including Bibi, his Certified Nursing Assistant. Mr. Costa shared that Bibi made him feel comfortable from the beginning of his stay and he is truly grateful for her support.
The Grand Pavilion staff sends well wishes to Mr. Costa!
