Director of Nursing
Sandy has been with the Rock Island family for eight years and in the healthcare industry for over 20 years. At Generations at Rock Island she oversees the nursing department and strives to provide the highest quality nursing care. She is a resident advocate who works closely with residents and their families answering question and addressing their needs to ensure the highest level of comfort and care.
Her journey began in high school – where she worked as a nurses’ aide. After earning her degree as a registered nurse she quickly identified her passion for working with geriatric patients in a local hospital. She continued this passion and career by moving in to long term care working as an MDS/Care plan coordinator and Director of Nursing.
Sandy loves working with her residents because, “working in long term care you are able to give more personalized care. The residents and their families become your family. Most residents feel comfortable coming to me with any issue they may encounter and it gives me a great sense of joy when I can assist them.”
In her spare time she loves to garden, shop for antiques and relax at the cabin she built with her husband.
Director of Admissions & Marketing
Brianna Sand has been Admissions Director at Generations at Rock Island since 2014. She has been working in Post Acute and Long Term Care for 15 years, starting in nursing as a CNA. Brianna completed her Degree in Practical Nursing from Daytona State College in 2003, and worked as a floor nurse for 2 years prior to being offered the position in Admissions, and has worked in that department ever since. She has held positions in both Internal Admissions and External Marketing, Nurse Liaison, Case Management, and Regional Director of Case Management.
After Brianna obtained her Practical Nursing Licensure in 2004, Brianna made the decision to stay in the long term care setting and continue her nursing career in Post Acute Care. A majority of her nursing experience is in Post Acute Care, a majority caring for higher acuity short term patients-similar to those that we care for here at Generations. Her knowledge of rehab and the long term care setting, from hands on nursing to discharge planning to reimbursement and insurances, has given her the well rounded experience that has made her efficient in coordination of Admissions.
Brianna is responsible for coordination of all aspects of the admissions process. She meets with patients and their families, prior to admission, to explain the financial and clinical aspects in detail and to orient them to the Skilled Nursing/Long Term Care Setting. She works closely with hospital and other healthcare agencies to ensure a smooth transition to our facility and ensures continuity of patient care is always maintained. Brianna works in conjunction with the rest of the Generations team, to ensure each new patient/resident’s needs are met, 110%. Customer Service is #1 in her book.
