Horrible hospital!

My 87-year-old father had to wait for nearly six hours in the ER with a broken hand before a doctor came to see him. The wait did not end there…the doctor saw him and then went to see another patient. Finally, he got attended after waiting for nearly eight hours. He was hungry, tired and completely exhausted. Come on guys; you should be quicker…I can understand if the wait is due to the requirement of major surgery and one has to wait for a specialist…but he had a clean break. All the staff did before the doctor came to see him was take his vitals. My father told me he was lucky; there were patients who were waiting for even longer. Never would we step into this place.

Superb, excellent and A+++ staff. This includes the nursing aides, nurses, doctors and surgeons. I had gone with a temporomandibular fracture, and they treated me very well. They did not shut my mouth. They fixed it without using any wires. Thanks to them, I am feeling very better. If you need any type of oromaxillofacial surgery, then this is the place to come

I was admitted to Lincoln after I fell sick with temp touching 103 degrees. I went through Express Care, where I was diagnosed quickly and escorted to the emergency room. In the emergency room, I was taken care of by a team of professionals who ran some tests, talked with me about the illness and then transferred me to a nursing unit, for further treatment and care. The nursing unit staff took great care of me and thanks to them, I am recuperating well.

I found entire medical staff caring, incredibly competent, compassionate, and very professional. Overall experience was good. I would not hesitate to say that the services and quality of care rendered were equal to, but not less, then the attention given by some of the finest hospitals in the state. I am grateful to the wonderful set of professionals for taking good care of me. Highly recommend

I went to the emergency department with a toothache and wanted some painkiller to tide over. I reached the hospital, was seen in and vitals checked. Then nothing. I did not see a doctor for the next three hours that I was in the hospital. Many people had come before me and were waiting to be seen by the doctor. Some of them started getting frustrated and began arguing with the staff. Seriously people, please stop calling it an emergency room. In an emergency room, one does not wait for hours to see medical personnel. One goes to the emergency room to get quick aid. If you cannot provide that, then shut down the whole thing. As for me, I walked out after waiting for three hours.

This is essentially a trauma hospital and a good one at that. My fiancé was injured in a bike accident and ended up getting badly injured. He was rushed to this hospital where a wonderful team of trauma specialists not only treated him but also ended up saving his right hand. Every single individual in the ICU was very helpful and kept me in the loop. Thanks to them, my fiancé is on the mend and hopes to recover within three to four months fully. The only problem I saw was that there was an acute shortage of staff...if there is another emergency, then the staff rushes there. Overall, a wonderful hospital for trauma.
