Over worked, poor management, short staffed

Pros
Sometimes free lunch
Cons
Health Insurance is expensive, no longer offer holiday pay

This place is a joke
CNA (Current Employee) –  Broomall, PAApril 22, 2018
Management is horrible disrespectful and very rude!!!Their only nice when they need you. It’s usually always short staff and please don’t let that we care about you fool you they don’t they don’t care about the residents or you! This place is a revolving door how your darn near your whole staff leave. Good luck at this place the only good thing is the few good nurses they have and the supervisor at night. They will not honor the union so if you think your safe you’re not. This is coming from a long time employee I have watch nurses come and go even supervisors! I won’t say this place needs to shut down because their is some good ppl in management and I would feel horrible for the residents. Not saying it’s bad but if you can come in mind your business do your job and go you can probably make them again you never know with Broomall. After this review I’ll probably be fired but at the point I don’t care. Ot is a joke you call out you can’t get your overtime or your shift differential. Oh before you apply they make cna do 3 weekends for 90 days and it’s not in the union contract something they made up. Also union dues are taking out after 30days
Pros
Pay rate is above average for a nursing home
Cons
Everything besides the pay

CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) –  Austell, GAApril 17, 2018
High turnover. Management treat employees wrong. Employees don't care about the residents, it's all about the money. If your a good worker they'll take advantage of you and treat you wrong. Management think their better then everyone.
Pros
None
Cons
Low pay, unprofessional, bad environment

CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) –  ColoradoApril 17, 2018
A typical day as a CNA consisted of showing up to work at the facility knowing you were incredibly short staffed, waiting around to see if nurses and CNA's were even going to show up (both incoming and oncoming staff), having an extremely large and unsafe patient ratio, taking care of patients who are most likely inappropriate for LTC settings, and constantly getting barked at by middle and upper management. Supplies are always running low and the food is terrible, which causes the residents a lot of discomfort and grief. Management and floor staff are completely disorganized, and they love wasting tons of paper instead of just using their computer programs. Even if you are full time there is not a set schedule, so get used to working all day every day. CONSTANT! And I mean, constant turn over. From administrators to DON's, you name the position, I guarantee Sava is trying to fill it right now since they are perpetually at above 100% turn over!

Most buildings are completely staffed by "travelers" or "agency" CNA's and nurses. This company has a very hard time keeping staff employed due to poor benefits, low wages, and horrible management. Most days as a CNA you are running around like a chicken with your head cut off. There is no training, no useful in-services, and no emphasis on education for staff. Most Sava buildings have terrible health inspection surveys due to lack of training and extremely high turnover of employees and managers.

The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the residents and families in each facility. Although, it does begin to weigh on
  more... you due to knowing that Sava does not care about their residents, just the bottom line $$$  less
Pros
Working with patients/residents of all different backgrounds, making a difference in a patient/resident’s life, lots of OT and hours
Cons
Poor benefit programs, low wages, awful management, no training, unsafe working conditions

Leadership Team Makes the Work Environment Poor
Director of Social Services (Former Employee) –  Fort Collins, COApril 13, 2018
The leadership team meets for 3 hours a day which makes getting your work done during business hours very difficult.

In my position as Director of Social Services I only reported to my administrator (supervisor) who did not have a very strong understanding of what falls under the social services purview and what does not, really he had no grasp of what social services does within a skilled nursing facility.

They pay you very well but at the end of the day it is not worth it because they will work you like they own you and expect the unreasonable/impossible out of you.

Management lacks communication with floor staff within the facility leading to a good deal of hysteria on a frequent basis.
Pros
great pay, fair amount of autonomy
Cons
outrageous hours, little recognition of successes, unreasonable expectations

Horrible Management and Leadership
Billing Analyst (Current Employee) –  Pikesville, MDApril 10, 2018
The morale is HORRIBLE and it starts with management!! If you have an issue and by protocol you let your manager know, they will tell the entire office no matter if its personal or professional. They set expectations that they do not hold themselves too. Typical day at work, employees spend more time in the managers office talking about personal affairs than they do work. The cliques start with management which in the end favoritism is shown. They lie to protect each others position. Even Human Resources is apart of this clique. Kiss butt, be friends with the manger and love drama?? This is the perfect job for you. The most enjoyable part of this job is clocking out.

Director of Rehabilitation (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXApril 5, 2018
utilized bonus program which definitely encouraged unethical practices. Had a weekly report I had to do that was due on a Monday. They added another report to do that was about the Monday report that was due the Friday before the Monday report detailing why you did not meet certain weekly expectations. Crazy

Horrible place to be
Nurse (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXApril 5, 2018
Horrible place to be whether your a nurse or a patient. The staff is overwhelmed and always short, with little or no support from the management team. Attitude towards staff per management is poor, and those that do the work are often overlooked. Residents food is always cold, and activities are redundant. The rooms are cleaned poorly, and the residents don't get thier showers. The nurses Dont care. The staff is more than 75% Nigerian and they ride the clock and don't work. The nurses are brand new out of school because of the poor pay rate of 21.50...thry get experience and don't come back. They go work for more...

I would not reccomend working for Sava
Administrative Nurse (Former Employee) –  Pleasanton TxMarch 31, 2018
Administration forges documents to get rid of employees. They promise field support and offer none. The atmosphere has no essence of culture. There is a lack of work ethic due to administration and field support not putting forth an effort to establish leadership. Sava will work you into the ground and then step over you.
Pros
I loved my residents and direct care nursing staff
Cons
Horrible field support and administrator

Does not provide a quality opportunity for care
Family member of a loved one who was a resident (Former Employee) –  Sheridan, WYMarch 18, 2018
My mother was a former resident at this facility. Her room did not have adequate ventilation and the walls had holes in them. Bare minimum maintenance was performed. Always understaffed and compensation was very poor. Would think twice before sending a loved one here. The CNA truly love the residents but they are worked to death. Not possible to give care that is needed for these deserving residents. This is a for-profit facility, the bottom line is all that matters. Leadership and this organization needs to be looked at closely. Concerning
