    I have been working at Sentara Healthcare part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to learn and make connections. Worked with so many different nurses, most truly care about their patients and work. Great team work and managers really care about the staff. Great company to advance with!

    Cons

    Pay could be a bit better considering the cost of living. More respect for care partners.

    I have been working at Sentara Healthcare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a great environment to work in. My team works really well together and provides a very cohesive atmosphere. The pay is also fair.

    Cons

    We work very hard and are always very busy, which is not always a bad thing. Our duties have increased, but staff has decreased. It took a while for upper management to realize how busy we are throughout the year.

    Advice to Management

    I believe the company is headed in a good direction. It's a large company, so no advice I could provide would be helpful since it would only be applicable to my area.

    Pros

    Pay is satisfactory and tends to increase with the market. Raises are done yearly for the most part,with bonuses for good/excellent performance which is good

    Cons

    Time off/vacation/sick leave is horribly done and is all about making money for the company
    Vacation time for holidays is horrible- no time for family

    Advice to Management

    If you want your employees to be happy, give them time with family

    I worked at Sentara Healthcare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was blessed to work with an amazing rehab team in the Sentara Life Care community. All of my colleagues truly cared about the wellbeing of each and every patient. It was a great learning experience for a first job!

    Cons

    Like all SNFs they're focused on productivity and their bottom line. By the time I left there was a big push to meet productivity as well as treat patients at ultra high and very high RUG levels whether even when they weren't necessarily appropriate for it. Also didn't want you to work overtime, but took from your PTO if you worked under 40 hours. But still had to maintain productivity even if a patient refused or went out for medical reasons.

    Advice to Management

    Don't have conflicting goals such as requiring to have therapists meet productivity but also wanting therapists to ensure they're not working over or under 40 hours. Do what's best for patients and not always your bottom line.
