I worked at Sava Senior Care full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

great area to work in....catonsville....... parking is not good though if u work 10am to 4pm, otherwise place is clean, neat

Cons

the work load was i think too much...they want you to do so much in an hr shift but really for a nurse the work is 12 hrs. on the skilled unit...lots of admissions with no med aide

Advice to ManagementAdvice

appreciate the employers more.......

    I have been working at Sava Senior Care (more than an year)

    Pros

    No bank account needed. Get paid on cash card, works like a debit card no bank fees

    Cons

    The company sucks, there is a feeling of over importance in making a profit vs providing care and safety for human beings. They have created a competition between facilities to have the most presentable building and you get a bonus if your facility wins, but pay cuts for the ones providing care on a day to day basis for the residents were implemented. (pay cuts that were not across the board).
    Rehab seems to be great, now Ive not experienced savas big medicare builds but from the looks of the rehab buildings they look to be much more staffed and updated. The only point of view I have is from one of savas Alzheimer's care centers. 56 beds probably not alot of room i can see for profit but because they are all long term residents and very little expectation for medicare dollars does not mean the company should cut corners, combine positions, leave the nursing staff chronically short staffed to continue making a profit. A building full of Alzheimer's residents are going to require much more care than the average alert and oriented person with a broken hip. Although this facility offers very little for resident care. Building built in 1965 little changes have been made. Not every resident has a bathroom in room which creates not enough places to toilet people or wash hands. The dinning area is not big enough and people are eating in a fire hazard environment.
    You will be told how great sava is and how big they are but dont be brain washed. You will be told whatever you need to be told to get you to come work there including a set pay and possibly the company wont approve it. Even if it was only the pay your were moving at your other job. They will try to recruit people if they know you or get your number. They are just like any other large company with people behind closed doors making decision that benefit there own skin, the problem with it is that these people arent just selling you a new tv, they are promising care for family members at an expensive cost. A cost that doesnt seem to be going torwards resident care. I hate to think that maybe all sava builds are ran this way. My advise would be to never really trust what you are being told from people in this company because it will probably change or its a lie.

    I have alot of respect for all the people i work for and with inside this sava facility but very little for the ones that come in once every three months with a nice suit on and driving a luxury car, when the ones doing the resident care get pay cuts.

    Sava seems to care too much about their bottom line and not the care of patients or treatment of employees.

    I worked at Sava Senior Care full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most of the caregivers seemed to care. Therapy staff was top notch and would often be the ones to answer call lights. The maintenance staff was very friendly and timely with getting things taken care of.

    Cons

    Cna's time with patients is minimal due to time constraints and the complexity of other patient's needs that require extra time. The nurse to ratio may meet state requirements, however, the nurses are rarely able to help, and many patients require 2 aides to attend to. That leaves no one available to answer a call light. The food needs to be more fruit and vegetable oriented, not heavy carbs and meat for everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that the care of elders should be the bottom line, not your profit ratio. Treat your employees like there are indispensable. If you want to be the best among your competition, hire more cna's above the federal standard ratio so, that they can give the patients more one on one care.
