Saber Guides a PATH Home 

The PATH to home goes through Saber, with our evidence-based models of care and our advanced clinical staff. 

Our expertise as care givers starts at the very top:  Saber’s leaders are skilled and experienced clinicians. This clinical leadership drives the innovative, customized care we provide throughout our facilities and services and programs.  

Saber’s Progressive Approach to Home or PATH program is a unique transitional care model, using proven medical models of care and evidence-based practices, such as INTERACT Heart Failure Society of America Heart Failure Score. PATH is specially designed to return patients to their homes quickly and safely and reduce hospital readmissions.

That means, simply getting patients home is not enough. PATH’s mission is to get them home in a way that provides the greatest opportunity for them to stay healthy and also provides the best opportunity for them to stay at home. A critical piece to PATH’s success is open, clear, direct communication with families and loved ones in providing necessary information to achieve this.

We’re here to improve the lives of each patient we are privileged to serve, providing long-term and short-term care for those in need.

Saber University

Saber is also a leader in professional development. We offer ongoing educational opportunities for our nurses, which result in lower turnover and increased patient satisfaction.

Saber University provides the foundation for PATH. Saber University has the following critical components, and all work to improve outcomes and satisfaction of our patients. In addition, Saber University has been a positive and proactive way for Saber to invest in our staff through enhanced educational options.

  • Classroom style nursing education offers the most up-to-date training on Heart Failure & Pulmonary Diseases/Conditions. Classes occur every six months and during Director of Nursing orientation.
  • The Simulation Lab provides the clinical staff with hands-on skills training. The focus is on the importance of early identification of changes of conditions, as well as a complete head to toe assessment. 
  • The Simulation Manikin provides clinical staff the ability to listen to various heart and lung sounds that can be programmed in, hand-on trach skills, catheter care, as well as IV skills.  Click here to view the training video.
