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!

Nursing Home Administrator (Former Employee) – Weaverville, NC – October 12, 2017
I was an Administrator with SAVA in North Carolina for 14 years . From the top of this company there is a commitment to building a strong culture. Health Care in our area struggled to find and keep sufficient staff so we did often face staffing challenges. However we had a dedicated staff who made sure our residents were cared for. I plan to work for this company again .
Management is abysmal. No recognition, no support. Moral is LOW!
RN (Former Employee) – Niantic, CT – October 9, 2017
Nurses are leaving Bride Brook in droves! Management shows absolutely no respect for nursing staff. Short staffed every day. The acuity and mental health of patients is ridiculous. The support of management/supervisors is nonexistent. You are risking your license for a company that will not stand behind you. This place will NOT be a 5 star facility for long.
Central Supply Coordinator (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – October 9, 2017
All departments staff were very patient and friendly. Residents were easy to communicate with and to befriend. Clients were also very friendly as well as helpful in giving updates on current upgraded supplies.
RCS (Former Employee) – Rome, GA – September 25, 2017
It was a great pleasure to work with so many residents over the last year. It was a great facility when I started , to bad it didn't stay that way. If your not part of the brown nosing clique, you don't stand a chance, they will make up a reason to terminate you. They can keep there pill stealing nurses, an tail kissing RCS'S , there are so many more opportunities out there.
Rules change daily. Management shows favoritism. If you are not in the favorites, they are always threatening your job. I loved being a nurse and loved my residents. As a nurse, i was disrespected by CNAs and other staff. Currently they have more agency nurses than employees. Management is terrible. Nurses and Aides are rude and hateful to other staff and patients. Always short staffed. Always having to stay over due to a favorite nurse who showed up whenever she felt like it usually 30 -45 minutes late every shift. If you are not in the "clique", you are treated horrible. Aides lie on the nurses. I have worked at many nursing homes, this was the worst!
Therapist (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – September 9, 2017
The worst management I have ever encountered. They dont care about the employee or the patient. Patients stay on therapy for ever even if evaluating therapists have recommended DC. PRN staff are put before fulltime employees. They like to reiterate that 30 hrs is full time and then bring in PRN at higher rates even though you dont have your 40hrs. High turn over of therapists.
Could not find any
Poor management, made rules up day to day, and threaten employees they will be written up.
Come work for Sava if you enjoy working short almost daily, not because there isn't enough staff but because corporate says people need to be sent home to save a dime! Money is the bottom line for this company, they don't care that patients aren't receiving adequate care and that corners are being cut. They also accept any and every patient (some extremely complex) and do not adjust staffing to reflect the acuity of the patients. If you need your hours, and can't afford to be sent home from work due to the "census" - don't apply, hours are not guaranteed, they cut employees and you can't say no. If you enjoy using your vacation or PTO time, don't apply, it is nearly impossible to get time off here. You can't take a weekend off, you have to take the whole week off (whether you need it or not) if you want a Saturday or Sunday off. If another employee has already requested a day/days off you will be denied vacation, this rule only applies to non-management (multiple managers/administration are allowed off at the same time).
Maintennce Director (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – September 5, 2017
Some what happy stressful good workers. a getting to know family atmosphere friendly coworkers. pay rate for others that are not in management is rated lower than other facilities. Blame game when someone drops the ball. Procedures broken to fit other than etc.
I have not even been at this company for two weeks yet and I have already had threats made Against Me by a fellow staff member and repeated resident care Specialists otherwise known as CNAs disrespect myself as a charge nurse and not effectively and safely taking care of the residents. I got out of work at 8 in the morning and had to turn around and come back for a meeting with management not even 2 hours later. Totally exhausted and no concern for my safety on the roadways, I was not impressed with this director of nursing at all who is only temporary. Apparently they have gone through many many director of nursing and administrators and no one has stayed.
RN Unit Manager (Former Employee) – Mount Pleasant, TX – July 23, 2017
I wpuld not recommend working here. This company does not value nurses or residents. The expectation is high yet management provides very little resources to ensure the nurses can do their jobs well. The residents suffer the most.
Pay and benefits are horrible compared to other places in the area. Filthy environment with black mold growing on walls and black filthy floors behind nurses stations. No linen to work with. Not one hospital gown in the entire facility!Short staffed all the time. No raises or evaluations ever given to anyone. Not recommended.
Manager (Former Employee) – Fenton, MI – July 9, 2017
This company is a joke! Even upper management does not follow their "culture of dignity and respect" they can't keep staff. Always short staffed. If you complain about care or voice resident concerns you get suspended or fired. The company is all.about the money and not the poor reaidents in the facilities. No one listens to anything. 100% dedication to this company is not ever good enough for them. Pay sucks, you never get a raise I'm Fact they have been known to male staff take a 3% cut in pay! Stay away from this company, you deserve better!!
