Yes, a grandchild is a descendant of a grandparent, even the law is smart enough to recognize that.

Biologically, the grandchild is a step-grandchild to the grandparent that had no children. In matters of the heart, however, the grandchild is whatever the grandparent feels it is.

Examples of three generations in a family include parent, child, and grandchild; or great grandparent, grandparent, and parent.

Unless the grandparent is the legal guardian of the grandchild, or if the mother is still a juvenile, the grandparents have absolutely no responsibility to the grandchild.

It is possible that a grandparent can get joint custody when a grandchild has a legal guardian. It will ultimately be up to the judge over the case.

For most situations a grandchild is immediate family. It may be more limited for hospital visitation.
