I spent almost three months in Grimes,following an accident in which my neck and back suffered breaks.
The admission process was a bit spotty, and my initial care seemed to be as well, depending on what shift and who was on.
Although it did help that I had family members who were actively advocating for me as well as me advocating for myself….My care did not really improve substantially until I complained, and also was better able to physically gain some level of independence. Saying that…There are some tremendously caring staff…On the fourth floor, nurse Janice, CNA's Janet and Nadia, and the entire physical rehab department were exceptional in their care. The food service department tried to work with me regarding my diet, and the social worker helped me with some paperwork I needed assistance with. I only had one very negative experience with one CNA, who was downright bullying and rough, who I immediately reported the next day. (She should not be working with any creature who needs kindness or assistance!) Of area nursing homes, this is still one of the better ones…and I would still recommend it for care if needed. My one suggestion would be to BE YOUR OWN ADVOCATE or have someone to assist you with this.
