    Where do I begin? I have a family member near and dear to my heart that resides at The Ambassador Sidney. I have had to call the state department on this nursing home because the nurses aides don't do personal cares and the nurses won't contact the doctors when I mention a concern to them. Going to the administrator is like talking to a brick wall. She is rude, acts high and mighty, and is not very smart. It is very hard to get her to listen to what you are trying to say. You can tell she thinks she knows it all. It is very obvious to me she does not. I do not really know all of what has gone on, but the good workers seem to keep leaving. From what I have heard, bits and pieces, from some of the inmates there, the company and some of the high up workers are not very nice and if people do not always agree they do not treat them good and then the good ones leave. I am pretty sure the people that work alot of long hours have left. Why do all the good DONs leave? I am guessing it is the treatment that runs them off. I have personally known the last one that just left, Dawn, for many years. She worked there for alot of years. She has a very good name around town as being someone to go to to get stuff done and as being a very caring individual. I am very upset she is gone. I want to know why! She promised me she would never leave. I saw her there late at night alot and when I would go in on weekends alot. I guess, she is another one that was worked to death. I as a family member, am scared there is nobody there I can trust to talk to about concerns that will take action to take care of them. Somebody in that company needs to open their eyes to what is happening in that home. All of the people from the community that have or do work there are leaving. What is going on? I am to the point I am going to look at other places for my family. I do not like the administrator, her assistant, or their nurse friends they are always standing around talking and laughing and not paying attention to the patients or their call lights when I go in there. You should be ashamed of yourselves for treating elderly patients that way. I will tell whoever I run across how horrible it is!

    I wouldn't put my worst enemy here. The Director Of Nursing position is given away at random every few months, along with the Administrator position. There is absolutely no stability for the residents whom reside here. I initially called and spoke with the current administrator about a place for a family member. She thought she had put me on hold, but had not, and I heard all of her rude comments and laughter regarding questions that I had. I don't know why, but I still went in for a tour. The administrator immediately came off as stuck up, and had a superiority complex when interacting with the CNA's. The building is old and it appears to have little to no housekeepers. I am a family friend of a current resident, and I want so badly to free her from this dump. The turn over for CNA's is astonishing. The good employees quit because they are treated poorly by management, and the not so good CNA's remain due to friendships with the management. This review is not an overall evaluation of The Ambassador in general, but certainly their Sidney, IA location.

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others. Medicare evaluates each problem based on 2 scales: the number of residents affected by a problem and the severity of the potential or actual harm to residents based on the problem. We have color coded the matrix below to make it easier to pick out the more severe problems. In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.

  Residents Affected
Severity of the Deficiency Few Some Many
Immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety J K L
Actual harm that is not immediate jeopardy G H I
No actual harm with potential for more than minimal harm that is not immediate jeopardy D E F
