    Pros

    Modern equipment, fulfills intermediate needs to stabilize patients and then send them somewhere else.

    Cons

    Classic case of a corporate office with no regard to patients or the community that puts bottom line above all else.
    In an effort to improve profits the Corporation laid off 18 other senior personnel in the nursing staff alone. Nurses with more than 10 years experience in that hospital were let go because it was cheaper to hire graduate nurses.
    Not only have nurses left but to doctors have also cut ties with the hospital. Local people will drive 50 miles to a different hospital. In 2011 the hospital went from being one of the top in the area to one of the worst.
    Advice to Graduate Nurses: if you're looking for a long time stable employer looks somewhere else. You're not a valued resource to this Corporation and they will throw you under the bus.

    Advice to Management

    You need to fit patient care ahead of your bottom line. You eliminated most of your senior people and when you did that you lost more than people you lost experience. He took a wonderful place to work, a trusted are the community, and for a few dollars and cents you through it all away. One person in the emergency room was almost begging to be taken to another hospital because her feelings were that she came to North Lincoln Samaritan Hospital to die. That's rather extreme and this was an elderly an individual but a longtime resident of Lincoln city.

  2. Pretty good
