Professional (Former Employee) – South Carolina – August 23, 2012
What used to be a decent place to work was turned into a total nightmare/pit within a few months! "New" management made many unneeded changes including bringing most of her "friends" in when she got rid of the old staff. Morale is horrible, chronically short staffed, orientation non existent. Truthfully, i gave it up when i realized my professional license and sanity was more important. The place has a horrid reputation in this area, basically the last resort anyone would choose to work or "rehab" at. Please do your self a favor and dont even think about it!
Mule (Former Employee) – Salisbury, NC – November 2, 2016
Do yourself a favor and apply somewhere else. After working in Brian Center Salisbury for many, many years seeing the good bad and ugly, I would recommend you look elsewhere. Some of the team are great, but most administration cares about money over quality care. Supplies are limited most of the time and staffing is poorly done. Poor benefits, poor appreciation shown. Job security depends on overhead. Which lowers your chances with all of the constant changes.
Some coworkers are good.
No job security, cant trust management, Short staffed, Dont always have supplies when needed, Constant turnover with administration
CMA/CNA (Former Employee) – Salisbury, NC – October 22, 2016
I started working at BC-Salisbury in 2011 and at that time, it was a great place to work! Had staff and necessary supplies, as time went on, administrator and DON left n since then that place has went thru numerous administrators and DON. Supplies and linen became limited and staff became short. They don't have enough staff to cover shifts and employees (nurses, CMAs, and CNAs) are overworked. Adequate resident care was NOT their top priority, they are more worried about documentation than providing care. No teamwork or communication, and definitely NO appreciation shown or mentioned to staff from office people. I think the only decent job in this facility, if any, would probably have to be in dietary.... Cuz housekeeping is terrible and does poor job of cleaning!! And laundry ain't no better, takes forever for resident to get their clothes back or they go missing
short staffed (EVERYDAY), poor organization and communication
A typical work day consisted of being short staffed.. We never had he necessary supplies needed to complete our jobs. Co-workers were often unhappy because they were overworked and not appreciated. I was there for 8 months and we had three different director of nursing and two administrators. The hardest part of this job was to give adequate care to the residents with the little staff and supplies that were available. The most enjoyable part of the job was the interaction with the patients.
short staffing, inadequate supplies, poor morale, turnover rate in mamagement
LPN (Former Employee) – Hickory, NC – November 10, 2016
Just don't do it. Terrible place to work in every aspect. Poor management. Always short staffed. Very stressful environment. Raises are never given. Always having issues with state compliance. Resident to nurse/cna is horrendous.
Unit Manager (Former Employee) – Brevard, NC – November 2, 2016
Worst place I ever worked. I was RN unit manager. Never enough staff, even down to administrative nurses. They were agency. No work home balance. Med passes impossible, expectations impossible to meet. Administrative team blind to issue. No possibility for advancement. Never had enough equipment. Ex 1 thermometer for entire building, no nonrebreathers available. HORRIBLE. NEVER GO THERE.
RN Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – Broomall, PA – October 4, 2016
Protect your license, do not go there! Impossible med pass, unable to get help or trust your co-workers, no job security. Plenty of overtime because no one ever stayed, I made it for seven months and that was a long time.
Unit Manager, RN (Former Employee) – Clarkston, MI – October 30, 2016
I would never recommend anyone to work there or anyone to stay there. Everyone there is over worked and underpaid. There is zero training for nurses and aides. The nurses that work there are good however are expected to care for so many resident that they don't have enough time to give proper care. It would be a great place to work however is owned by a absolutely horrible company!! I could go on and on but I think you get the point.
RN (Former Employee) – Wilmington, NC – August 5, 2016
The temperature in there was 80-84 degrees everyday. Had an old mildew/mold smell throughout the building. Orientation we watched a few videos & filled out paperwork. No orginazation there. Gave me a 1 day orientation & tried to put me in the floor with no long term care experience. Other nurses have poor attitudes & 1 refused to work her floor shift. I resigned and now they have not given me my paycheck. Have been in touch with 1 person & left a message for another. Nobody knows anything about paying me.
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Pleasanton, TX and Kerrville, Tx – October 24, 2016
I would never put a family member in one of Sava's facilities. I have worked at 2 and both were poorly ran and the CNA's and nurses had no compassion. They will work you into the ground because they have trouble keeping other employees. I would not recommend this job to anyone
nice rehab dept co-workers, but extremely disorderly facilty (gastonia) with unethical work demands
SLP (Former Employee) – gastonia, nc – November 3, 2014
excellent pay & good benefits. good, but expensive medical insurance. nice rehab dept co-workers. some pts were enjoyable to work with. disorganized facility (Gastonia). clueless administrators. very poor medical patient care. excessive interference by facility administrators & families. frequent requests by administrators to have therapists engage in unethical patient care related decisions. many challenging, medically complex patients, to learn a lot from.
moving effective work day with the patients and staff
certified nursing assistant (Former Employee) – Montgomery, AL – December 4, 2015
great day in patient care. In this profession you either love it or not. I love it because its all about caring for others in time of need. My motto is you up today,but you can be down tomorrow. So think before you act.
