Charge Nurse, RN (Former Employee) – Bristol, RI – June 10, 2017
The facility is clean and the employees care about residents. Staff for the most part works together. However poorly staffed. Management does not care how short you work. They give no support. Most staff stay because of the residents and the bond they have. They need work but could be an A+ facility.

Work load is large and at times unmanageable due to staffing shortage. Management has no interpersonal skills, they treat there staff horrible. Co workers constantley back stabing each other.Time off is very hard to get. Pay is average although benefit are good.

I truely enjoyed working here, i was employed there for over two years. The facility is always kept clean, the residents and patients are meticuliously cared for. The staff is hard working. Only downfall i would say is since its such a small facility there was alot of drama among the CNAs, they usually have big attitudes due to being so short staffed.
Excellant pay and incentives!
Argumentive CNAs, Working late past shift due to work load
Admissions & Marketing Director (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – November 28, 2015
Enjoyed working there that I worked there for over 8.5 years 2 separate times. Management was always there for your backup. Tried to update building to build up census. Only thing was that census numbers were unrealistic for that area.

Clean facility with loving staff. The crew I worked with was awesome, but some of the nurse's don't contribute to the quality of care when it's under staffed. Some nurse's don't know or ignore the concept of team work. All the physical and mental well being of the residents fall on the CNA's shoulders which isn't fair! They're over worked and under paid. The CNA's work short consecutively for weeks, and received no compensation. I got tired of the politics and quit!
Sava Senior Care (SNF) (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – August 12, 2015
Flexible schedule Moderate paced environment A variety of diagnosis seen Director was fabulous and co-workers very supportive Hardest part of job was billing and justifying treatment Most enjoyable part was getting to see how much you can impact someone in a nursing home setting.
clean and organized environment with friendly staff
RN Supervisor (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – September 17, 2014
Many staff members have been employed with the company for many years, some 10+ years. Some have started as housekeepers, and dishwashers and have made their way up to charge nurses. Management is very understanding and encouraging of continuing education. There are many caring and compassionate staff members that treat the residents and family members like members of their own family. It's a pleasant place to work.
friendly, compassionate staff
census can drop pretty low and effect job security

Rather smooth day, if you have good time manangemnt. Depending on what hall you worked on. My skilled hall could get hectic at times when you have numerous admission. But that all goes back to having good time managment. With change in director came outrageous changes.
Management, Administration could care less about residents, Only money/insurance
The workplace was staffed with personnel right out of school who were untrained or staff who had been there for a while who had grown too comfortable.

I enjoyed working at Silver Creek not because of my peers but because of the residents. That type of jobs calls for a certain type of person and most of the people who worked there were working there for the wrong reason...a paycheck. You have to work there for the resident and no other reason. They depend on you for everything. If your heart is not in it you are in the wrong place. The one thing I DETESTED about Silver Creed Manor is they always preached to us employees about resident's rights when in actuality they had very little. When I was there I never saw them and that is one of the reason why I quit. I submitted my letter of resignation three times before actually quitting. Why you might ask? Well, it is because I knew I was one of the few people who actually cared about their rights. I treated them with respect and dignity and the love they deserved and they loved me for it. The feeling I got back from the residents was hard to give up but I could no longer handle the daily stress of seeing the residents forced to do things they didn't want to do, or watch as they were not being taken care of with the care they deserved. So I finally got upset enough one day and quit and to this day I miss every one. I was there for three of them to pass on. Those were very sad days for me. I cried along with their families. I became so close in the last few weeks in one of my resident's life that I was asked to be pall bearer at his funeral. I don't think there are too many people who can say that and for that I am proud!
Poor management of breaks lead to some employees no time to have breaks at all.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Bristol, RI – April 20, 2012
A typical day at work may be called anything but typical. There is a ongoing, close and immediate interaction with the patients and residents from the moment that I, and the other employees enter the facility. All of the staff members as well as my supervisors are always eager to consult and troubleshoot any ailment at any given time. One of my single most favorite things to do at work, aside from my morning coffee break is chatting and laughing with the residents. I have learned that a short amount of my time is a large part of their day. As far as the hardest part of my job: I would have to say is a grieving family member.
