Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center Celebrates National Day of Recognition for Long Term Care Physicians—March 20

 

Long Beach, NY – Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center recognizes the role of physician leaders in quality, person-centered care by celebrating the annual National Day of Recognition for Long Term Care

Physicians on March 20. This initiative started as an effort to honor the memory and work of William Dodd, MD, CMD, founder of AMDA—The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine. The U.S. Congress formally designated the special day in 2010. “The post-acute and long-term care physician is there when knowledge, empathy, skill, and teamwork matter the most,” said 2015-2016 AMDA President Naushira Pandya MD, CMD, FACP.

 

Grandell Rehab would like to recognize today, March, 20 2015 the hard work and devotion of our long term care physicians. Their dedication is an inspiration to the Grandell team and we are truly lucky to have each of them caring for our residents. Our team is led by our medical director, Dr. Mekala Ramgopal who has been at Grandell Rehab since November, 1994. His extensive medical experience includes over 35 years as an MD in Saint John’s Hospital in Far Rockaway, NY.

 

Grandell Rehab and Nursing Center, located at 645 W Broadway, Long Beach, NY, is a 278 bed premier skilled nursing and rehabilitation care center providing 24-hour comprehensive care to adults of all ages. We are located in Nassau County off the Long Beach boardwalk.

Grandell Rehabilitation Nursing Center also offers a highly successful amputee rehab program which utilized a specialty make 55 foot long harness, the first of its kind in New York State. Grandell serves three kosher meals a day.

 

Dr. Dodd was a community physician who recognized that residents of nursing homes were

patients with complex medical problems and that physicians needed to be involved in establishing the standards of management and clinical care for the frail elderly and other long-term care facility residents. A pioneer who espoused the value of teamwork and person-centered care, Dr. Dodd once said, “We promote peer education, assistance, and consultation among physicians on nursing home staffs.  We assist in establishment and maintenance of high standards of care for patients of all ages in nursing homes.  We assist the family and laymen in understanding and accepting nursing home medical patient care.”

 

“A long-term care (LTC) physician is not only a dedicated practitioner, but a tried and true manager and passionate advocate of often overlooked PA/LTC patients. LTC physicians inspire me daily to provide the highest quality of care to my patients and their families.” AMDA is pleased that [FACILITY] has taken this opportunity to honor physicians and the good work they do every day,” said 2014-2015 AMDA President Leonard Gelman, MD, CMD.

 

AMDA is the national professional association of medical directors, attending physicians, and other professionals practicing post-acute and long-term care medicine and committed to the continuous improvement of patient care. AMDA provides education, advocacy, information, and professional development to enable its members to deliver quality post-acute and long-term care.

Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center honors Safe Toys and Gift Month by raising awareness about potential hazardous toys. During this time of year, the toy industry is booming but parents must remain vigilant about the toys and gifts their children receive.

The following guidelines are important for choosing safe toys for all ages:

  • All toys should be inspected before purchase. Avoid those that have shooting mechanisms or include parts that fly off.

  • The toy should not have sharp corners or edges and should be durable enough to withstand impact without breaking.

  • Check toys for age, skill level, and developmental appropriateness.

  • Check for labels that certify that the toy has passed a safety inspection. ATSM attests that the toy has met the American Society for Testing and Materials standards.

  • Protective equipment should be given alongside sport gear.

  • Learn about lead exposure from toys, characteristics of lead poisoning, and what kinds of toys have been recalled in the past. Remember that old toys are more likely to contain lead. If you suspect that your child has been exposed to lead, make sure they wash their hands frequently and thoroughly and contact your pediatrician immediately.

  • Do not give toys with small parts to young children. If the toy piece can fit inside a paper towel roll, it is not appropriate for children under 3 years old.

 

“Here at Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, we would like to remind everyone about remaining vigilant while toy shopping this year. There are many toys that contain potentially hazardous materials or not age appropriate for your child. Keep up to date about current recalls and important guidelines when toy shopping” says Baruch Giberstien, Administrator at Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center.

Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center partakes in this year’s American Diabetes Month. Diabetes is a disease in which a person’s body cannot produce an adequate amount of insulin or is unable to respond to insulin. Without insulin, the body’s blood sugar levels can increase to dangerous levels. Therefore, many people diagnosed with diabetes are required to take insulin injections or pills to manage their blood sugar levels. However, a diabetic must monitor their blood sugar levels to ensure that it does not drop too low. Low blood sugar can occur when there is too much insulin and inadequate amount of sugar in a person’s blood. Several factors can cause low blood sugar in people diagnosed with diabetes, including taking too much insulin injections or pills, skipping a meal, or increased physical activity. Treatment includes taking glucose tablets to raise the blood sugar levels.  A diabetic can experience seizures and loss of consciousness if low blood sugar is ignored.

 

It is important that a diabetic and his or her family are able to recognize the signs and symptoms of low blood sugar. Early symptoms include dizziness, sweating, hunger, anxiety, hunger and headaches. More serious symptoms include muscle weakness, blurry vision, confusion, and seizures.

 

“Diabetes is a serious condition which much be closely monitored. Since low blood sugar can be a side effect of diabetic medication, pay close attention to initial warning signs, so you can treat low blood sugar promptly,” says Baruch Gilberstein, administrator at Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center.

Grandell Rehab Hosts Long Beach's First Annual Out On A Limb Walk for Limb Loss Awareness

 

On Sunday October 5th, 2014, the first annual “Out on a Limb” Walk was held at noon here in Nassau County on the Long Beach Boardwalk. The event was co-sponsored by A.O. Prosthetic Rehab Center from Ozone Park, and Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center from Long Beach. The walk was to benefit 3 organizations that help amputees both locally and globally; first being the Amputee Coalition of America, second is the Challenged Athletes Foundation, and third is the Living Water Children’s Center Fund.

 

The event was a complete success as over 200 participants, both amputees and able-bodied walkers joined to walk the boardwalk. In attendance were local vendors, local businesses, corporate sponsors, and prosthetic manufacturers, showing off their goods and services. All ages had fun at the event as a DJ played music, face painters and food were all part of the walk. As everyone returned from walking the boardwalk, over 35 baskets filled with local products and gift certificates including an IPAD were raffled off to lucky winners. Then, for the final grand prizes, 3 very lucky amputees walked away as winners of a custom running prosthesis that were raffled off. The 3 running feet were donated by prosthetic manufacturers Otto Bock, Ossur, and Freedom Innovations, and the prosthetic limbs will be fabricated by the co-host A.O. Prosthetic Rehab Center.

 

The walkers created many teams and raised over $15,000 for the 3 receiving organizations. Plans for next year’s 2nd annual “Out on a Limb” Walk are already in the works, and the coordinators are excited to soon announce the charitable organizations that will receive the funds raised in next year’s walk.

Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center Celebrates Back To School with Helpful Tips for Parents

 

Long Beach, NY based skilled nursing facility Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center prepares parents for back to school by sharing helpful tips for students to make the most of their school year.

 

As this beautiful summer comes to an end it only means one thing, back to school. Since the school year is right around the corner, everyone is preparing for that first day of school. There are many objectives, such as traveling to and from school, bullying, food for school, before and after school child care and developing good homework and studying habits. Parents need to know how exactly to take care of them in a timely, organized and economical manner.

 

In order to be completely ready for this approaching school year, Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center would like to share some back to school tips for parents this year.

 

Remind your child that there are probably a lot of students who are uneasy about the first day of school. This may be at any age. Teachers know that students are nervous and will make an extra effort to make sure everyone feels as comfortable as possible.

Children should always board and exit the bus at locations that provide safe access to the bus or to the school building.

Most schools regularly send schedules of cafeteria menus home and/or have them posted on the school's website. With this advance information, you can plan on packing lunch on the days when the main course is one your child prefers not to eat.

If you choose a commercial after-school program, inquire about the training of the staff. There should be a high staff-to-child ratio, and the rooms and the playground should be safe.

Some children need help organizing their homework.  Checklists, timers, and parental supervision can help overcome homework problems.

 

"Getting a new school year off to a good start can influence children’s attitude, confidence, and performance both socially and academically. The transition from August to September can be difficult for both children and parents. Even children who are eager to return to class must adjust to the greater levels of activity, structure, and, for some, pressures associated with school life,” remarked Baruch Giberstien, the Administrator at Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center.

 

Grandell Rehab and Nursing Center, located at 645 W Broadway, Long Beach, NY, is a 278-bed premier skilled nursing and rehabilitation care center providing 24-hour comprehensive inpatient care to adults of all ages.

Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center of Long Beach, NY Highlights Summer Safety Tips for the Senior Community

 

Nassau County nursing home Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center offers important summer safety tips for senior citizens in honor of June 2014 National Safety Month 

 

Long Beach, NY (June 2014) During the month of June, Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center observes National Safety Month and encourages others to raise awareness about crucial safety issues facing seniors in the summertime. By educating the community, Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center aims to reduce the risk of heat stroke and other injuries and illnesses among the senior citizen population in the hot summer weather.

 

With the sunny summer months approaching, many community seniors face the risk of heat-induced illness such as sunburn, dehydration and heat exhaustion/stroke. Keeping this in mind, Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center provides a list of important rules to always keep in mind to stay healthy in the heat.

 

·      Remain indoors with the air conditioning on. If the temperature is in the 90s or higher and you don’t have an air conditioner, go somewhere that has one, such as a shopping mall, library, senior center or movie theater. Fans can’t provide enough cooling in such heat.

 

·      If you need to go outdoors, always wear sunscreen that has an SPF of at least 15.

 

·      Be aware of heat stroke. Signs of heat stroke include an altered mental state, not sweating and nausea. If you see someone displaying these symptoms, seek medical care immediately.

 

·      Drink lots of cold water, clear juices and other liquids that don’t contain alcohol or caffeine as these two can easily dehydrate you.

 

·      Take cooler showers than usual, or sponge baths when you’re feeling warm. Wet washcloths or towels with cool water and put them on your wrists, ankles, neck and under your armpits to help cool down.

 

“Summer safety concerns should not be taken lightly," said Baruch Giberstien, Administrator at Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center. “It is of utmost importance that we take all the necessary precautions and make sure everyone, and especially are seniors, are safe and healthy.”

 

Grandell Rehab and Nursing Center, located at 645 W Broadway, Long Beach, NY, is a 278-bed premier skilled nursing and rehabilitation care center providing 24-hour comprehensive inpatient care to adults of all ages.

Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center Supports ALS Awareness Month in May 2014

 

Long Beach, NY based nursing home honors those living with "Lou Gehrig's Disease”

 

Long Beach, NY (May 2014) During the month of May, the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) recognizes those living with ALS in support of National Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (or ALS) Awareness Month. A number of month-long programs and initiatives are underway to heighten public awareness of ALS and to inform the ALS community of the services, support and research available from the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

 

ALS, often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's Disease," is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons from the brain reach to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed.

 

The ALS Association promotes knowledge of the disease and resources for those suffering. ALS is not contagious, but could strike anyone, regardless of race, economic standing, or geographic location. On average, 15 new cases of ALS are diagnosed every day; more than 5,000 per year. The average life expectancy of a person with ALS is two to five years from the time of diagnosis. However, with advances in research and medical care many patients are living longer lives with more productivity. For more information about what you can do to support ALS research, visit www.alsa.org.

 

“ALS is a devastating illness for patients and their loved ones. The cause of ALS is still unknown and while there is no cure, there is hope. With support from our communities, dedicated researchers are working toward putting an end to this terrible disease. We urge everyone to take time and learn about what you can do to help,” said Bar Giberstien, the administrator at Grandell Rehab and Nursing Center.​

Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center Celebrates National Nursing Home Week 2014

 

Long Beach, NY based Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center celebrates and actively participates in National Nursing Home Week 2014

 

Long Beach, NY (May 2014) This year, starting on Mother's Day, the week of May 11-17 marks National Nursing Home Week. The American Health Care Association (AHCA) established National Nursing Home Week in 1967, which gives the opportunity for nursing homes around the country to celebrate the many contributions of their staff and residents. This year's National Nursing Home theme is the Hawaiian, "Living the Aloha Spirit", encouraging living a life of kindness, compassion, patience and harmony.

 

In Hawaiian culture, 'Aloha' has more profound interpretations than the simple 'hello'. It also stands for treating others with respect, care, and humility which are the values upheld at Grandell Rehab and Nursing Center. A place of unity, truthfulness, harmony and caring and respect for others. These values are core to the everyday workings of Grandell, and influence the staff and administration.

 

In the spirit of National Nursing Home Week many administrators take the opportunity to express how appreciative they are of their staff and the great work that they do. There is always a focus on making the work environment as enjoyable to work in as possible and National Nursing Home Week is the perfect opportunity to showcase these aspects of a facility.

 

"I'd like to take this opportunity to express my complete appreciation and once again thank the incredible staff at Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center for their undying commitment to nursing care," said Bar Giberstien, Administrator at Grandell. "I want them to know they are an incomparable, unequaled driving force and a gleaming example for all other staff teams in this industry. I am so proud of the work we have accomplished so far and look forward to what we have planned for the future."

 

Grandell Rehab and Nursing Center, located at 645 W Broadway, Long Beach, NY, is a 278-bed premier skilled nursing and rehabilitation care center providing 24-hour comprehensive inpatient care to adults of all ages. The proud recipient of a 2014 Deficiency Free Survey from the New York State Department of Health, Grandell provides short-term rehabilitation, long-term care and hospice care, along with a renowned Alzheimer's/Dementia program.

Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center Supports World Meningitis Day 2014

 

Long Beach, NY based Nursing Home educates the community on the dangers of the Meningitis disease and how to prevent infection.

 

Long Beach, NY (April 2014) This year, April 24th marks World Meningitis Day. Established by the Confederation of Meningitis Organizations, World Meningitis Day aims to raise the global profile of meningitis, emphasize the importance of vaccination, and provide support to those dealing with the symptoms of the disease. Grandell Rehab recognizes the importance of educating the community on the disease and supports the CoMO in their efforts by sharing tips to avoid contracting the disease and how to respond in the worst case scenario.

 

Meningitis is inflammation of the meninges. The meninges is the collective name for the three membranes that envelop the brain and spinal cord. There are three types of meningitis: Bacterial, Viral, and Fungal. Bacterial meningitis is aggressive, develops quickly and can lead to permanent disability or death in a matter of hours. It is fatal in approximately 50% of cases and accounts for around 170,000 deaths around the world each year. The infection spreads from person to person through actions such as kissing, coughing, sneezing, sharing food or utensils. Children who attend daycare or preschool are at greater risk of contracting bacterial meningitis.

 

Viral meningitis is the most common but least severe and many patients recover without any permanent damage. Fungal meningitis causes severe infections but occurs much less frequently. It is not contagious and spreads by inhaling fungal spores from the environment.

 

Meningitis can be difficult to identify early on in infection. The main signs of contracting the disease are similar to the common cold and develop quickly over the course of just a few hours. Look for symptoms such as vomiting, drowsiness, stiff neck, light sensitivity, and headache as well as altered consciousness. The best way to prevent bacterial meningitis is through vaccination. Vaccines prepare the immune system by exposing the body to a germ so that it is better able to fight an infection when it occurs. The vaccines available protect against all three major causes of bacterial meningitis.

 

“Meningitis is a dangerous and fatal disease. People should be educated on its potential dangers and learn how to prevent infection, not just for their health, but for the health of future generations. Since the geriatric population is at high risk, we must do our best as a care center to spread awareness, not germs,” said Bar Giberstien, Administrator at Grandell.

 

Grandell Rehab and Nursing Center, located at 645 W Broadway, Long Beach, NY, is a 278-bed premier skilled nursing and rehabilitation care center providing 24-hour comprehensive inpatient care to adults of all ages. The proud recipient of a 2014 Deficiency Free Survey from the New York State Department of Health, Grandell provides short-term rehabilitation, long-term care and hospice care, along with a renowned Alzheimer's/Dementia program.

Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center Highlights its Excellent Dietary Department During March National Nutrition Month

Long Beach nursing home Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center supports March National Nutrition Month

 Long Beach, NY (March 2014) March is National Nutrition Month, an observance that is widely overlooked, yet universally important to every member of our society. As people age, nutrition becomes more important to overall health, especially in regards to the elderly population. Proper diet and nutrition helps elderly individuals keep their minds sharp and alert, while also increasing energy. However, the elderly have different needs than the rest of the population, which is why Grandell Rehab and Nursing Center of Long Beach, New York, would like to share helpful tips about maintaining a healthy diet after the age of 50.

 

Use less salt! Reduce your sodium intake to reduce water retention and high blood pressure.

 

Eat good fats! Avocados, olive oil, walnuts, and salmon are all examples of “good fats” that can protect you from bad cholesterol and raise your good cholesterol.

 

Go fiber! Fiber is a crucial part of a nutritional diet, as it reduces constipation, lowers your risk of chronic disease, and helps you feel more full when eating.

 

Eat more veggies! The best way to prepare vegetables is by steaming or sautéing them in olive oil. Olive oil preserves nutrients and is a great example of the good fats doctors recommend.

 

Diversify your plate! A helpful tip from Japanese food culture is to include five colors on your plate. Fruits and veggies rich in color correspond to rich nutrients (blackberries, melons, yams, spinach, tomatoes, zucchini).

 

“This being Nutrition Month, we would like to send a huge thank you to our dietary department. They are a vital aspect of our operations here at Grandell and we all take a lot of pride in the food we make here. They work with every resident individually to create customized nutrition plans. We understand that many health issues our residents encounter can potentially be avoided with the right diet,” said Baruch Giberstien, Administrator at Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center.

 

Grandell Rehab and Nursing Center, located at 645 W Broadway, Long Beach, NY, is a 278-bed premier skilled nursing and rehabilitation care center providing 24-hour comprehensive inpatient care to adults of all ages.

Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center Shares Easy Ways To Go Green At Home

Long Beach, NY Based Nursing Home Grandell Rehab invites the community to go green this March for Earth Day

Long Beach, NY (March 2014) In today's society, there is strong concern for preserving the planet and it's resources from overuse. Protecting land, environments, and ecosystems across the globe have become key initiatives for businesses and people all over the world. This is why Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center hopes to educate and encourage the community to participate in going Green this March to honor Earth Day on March 20th 2014. Green initiatives are simple to start in your own home or business and are often more cost effective than traditional practices, which can be more wasteful.

 

Small lifestyle changes at home can greatly affect our immediate and global environment, such as reducing landfill waste, airborne toxins and fumes, and preserving natural reserves. Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center shares five tips on going green at home, and calls on residents and members of the community to band together for greener and cleaner neighborhoods. To get involved, adopt some of these simple practices to make a positive green imprint on your community.

 

Give up disposable bags! Paper or plastic? Bring your own. Reusable grocery bags help to cut down on the amount of tree's cut down to make paper bags and the amount of non-biodegradable materials from Plastic bags.

 

Turn off your computer completely at night, instead of letting it overcharge. This will save on your energy bill, while also preserving your battery's lifetime.- Before making that new item purchase, do the research to see if it's something you could find from a yard sale or consignment shop, cutting down on landfill waste.

 

- Replace one meal a week with a vegetarian option. Not only is it healthy for you, it saves hundreds of gallons of water (it takes 100 gallons of water to produce 1 pound of ground beef)!

 

- Introduce houseplants to your home. They increase oxygen circulation and bring peaceful energy to a space.

 

"The planet is our home and our number one resource. We as a society need to be cognizant of this and treat the environment with care so we can preserve it for future generations. We at Grandell are glad to join the cause," said Baruch Giberstien, Administrator at Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center.

Long Beach, NY (February 11, 2014) Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, a premier 278-bed skilled nursing and rehabilitation care center, is the proud recipient of a 2014 Deficiency Free Rating from the New York State Department of Health. This rare and difficult to achieve certification was awarded only to select skilled nursing facilities that demonstrated very strong workplace competencies, including clean, well maintained facilities and great patient care by properly certified staff. Such an outstanding achievement is made possible only by the daily commitment and dedication of the exceptional staff of Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center.

 

These surveys serve to evaluate the overall quality of care and living expectations at these nursing facilities and are a great assessment tool for prospective residents, their families and others to make more informed decisions about a skilled nursing facility.

 

Deficiencies may result in fines, suspended reimbursements or even disenrollment from Medicare/Medicaid. Nursing homes in New York receive on average seven citations per health department survey, while the national average is 11

 

Other ranking factors include meetings with the residents and their families and a positive overall environment / quality of living for patient recovery and care. The New York State Department of Health reviews these and many other criteria in a rigorous examination lasting several days before awarding a Deficiency Free certification to any health facility. Due to increasingly stringent regulations obtaining this certification is neither easy nor common, Grandell Rehab’s staff is extremely excited about having received this status and look forward to more positive changes and developments at the facility this year.

 

“The entire administration here at Grandell would like to proudly congratulate our staff for this tremendous accomplishment. It’s not every day a nursing home receives a zero deficiency score, and is a direct testament to the hard work we all put in for our residents day in and day out”, stated Baruch Giberstien, Administrator at Grandell.

January 2014

Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center Supports Blood Donor Month With Helpful Tips for A Dizzy Free Donation

Long Beach, NY Based Nursing Home recognizes and encourages community members to donate blood during Blood Donor Month

Long Beach, NY (January 2014) Millions of people donate blood to help others in times of emergency for many different reasons. Some donate for a relative or a friend in need, others just for the satisfaction of helping another. The month of January, designated as Blood Donor Month, is particularly important for donations due to the frequency of winter weather accidents and injuries.

 

Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center encourages members of the community to participate in blood drives this month. The Red Cross estimated 41,000 blood donations are needed every day and while that goal may not be reached, there are enough people eligible to donate to fill it. The Red Cross is facing a blood shortage, a dangerous status when someone in the US is in need of blood every two seconds.

 

When deciding to give blood, one should follow these simple steps for the best donation experience. First, when giving blood, it is possible to become dizzy from a drop in blood sugar. Drink plenty of water and fruit juice the night and morning before a donation and avoid dehydrating caffeinated beverages. Having food in your stomach also helps decrease light headedness, so it is advised to eat three hours before donation. During your donation, remember to relax. Bring a calming playlist or a book, something that only requires one hand to use. Finally, after your donation, be sure to have a meal high in protein to help your body replenish your blood supply. Remember to steer clear of alcoholic beverages for at least 8 hours post donation.
