Gosh if its ranked top 10 I'm afraid of what other hospitals look like. Worst experience ever. Whoever is in charge of emergency should be ashame. A lot of yelling from people who work here. I waited forever here. They didn't seem sanitary. Very unprofessional.
They Are Just Fine – If you move the whole hospital to Upper West Side bellow 96th Street, it would be nice and clean. Walls and personal are not the one who make this hospital a horrible place, the patients are.
Good hospital in not so good looking, busy surounding. – This is great hospital. Although the building is pretty nice, it felt more like busy bus or metro station (it has busiest ER on the east coast). I had very good experience with every staff member I talked to (except for hospital security police officer who was a little bit rude). Except for the ER everything else in the hospital appears like any other hospital (clean, nice, tidy and organized). I was very pleasantly surprised with good and high-standard care it provides to it's poor, mostly uninsured patients (hopefully example for the future). In the New York State Department of Health evaluations it ranked in top 10 of more than 60 New York City hospitals. Just the hospital without neighborhood 5 stars!
I REGRET EVER TRYIN TO KILL MYSELF SO I DONT WINED UP HERE!! – i totally agree, im in the ICU right now on suicide watch and the nurse who's job is to make sure im not hurting myself has fallen asleep, i took a picture of her, wish i can post this up here for all to see. Now what if i really wanted to re try my attempt?? IT WOULDA SUCCESSFULLY WENT DOWN!!!! OH YEAH PLUS THE FOOD IS SHITTY, SO ARE ALL THE FOREIGN-U-CAN-BARELY-UNDERSTAND-ENGLISH NURSES AND DOCTORS!!! I GUESS LIVING IN A COMMUNITY AS SUCH I GET THIS KINDA TREATMENT!! NOT TO MENTION MY ROOMIE HAS HAD 3 SEIZURES WHILE HERE N SHE NEVER GOT A NURSE TO CLOSELY WATCH HER AS THEY HAVE ONE FOR ME, IT MADE ME FEEL SO BAD, DAT I REALLY DONT NEED A NURSE WATCHING ME SINCE MY SUICIDE ATTEMPT WAS ONLY A PREDICTURE FAILURE TO SCARE MY MOM N IM NOT THINKING BOUT DOING IT AGAIN, YET THIS LADY LAYING ASIDE ME NEEDS CRITICLE HELP N SHE DIDN'T HAVE ANY ON STANDBY!!!!!

EMERGENCY ROOM – I WENT TO LINCOLN HOSP. ON 5/12/10 TO CHECK ON MY MOM THAT WAS ADMITTED THAT EVENING. I WAS ACTUALLY SCARED TO SIT IN THE E.R. THE PLACE WAS FILTHY. TRASH COVERED THE FLOOR AND IT JUST LOOKS REALLY DINGY. I WAS SO UPSET THAT MY MOM EVEN CHOSE THAT PLACE TO SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION. WHEN I FINALLY WENT TO VISIT HER IN THE E.R. THE SMELL WAS UNBEARABLE. LINCOLN HOSPITAL MAY HAVE GOOD QUALITIES FOR SOMETHINGS, WHICH I'M NOT POSITIVE ABOUT BUT FOR THE MOST PART IT'S THE WORST AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED.
THE NURSES ARE CARELESS! – Well when my little sister fell and busted her forehead open she was bleeding a whole lot . ( She was only 2 years old!) When we rushed her to the emergency room. The nurse told us to wait untill she is called. and the emergency room was crowed! It was a long wait and my sister was looseing a whole BUNCH of bl00D from her forehead. I couldnt help it so I went up to the nurse and said " Listen this is an emergency cant you see that my sister is looseing a lot of bl00d??!! She needs stitches Now. So they finnally let her in. I cant believe that I had to speak up so that they can give her medical attention. My sister ended up getting 8 stiches and after that she was fine.
the worst but not bad with kids – listen i live in the bronx in fact i live across the street from lincoln from personal and from other peoples experience, it is the worst hospital its like they send all the reject doctors but i am not gonna lie when it comes down to kids there not so bad, i wouldnt ever give birth there but for an emergency i would bring my daughter there i guess there scared of messing up on kids and just dont care about adults. my friend went there cuz she got cut on her finger and needed stitches, the doctors actually stitched 2 of her fingers together and she had to go to another hospital to fix everything.
BRONX LEBINON also a terrible hospital the nurses there will stab you literally like 10 times just to try to get your blod. if you ever have to stay there over night dont will never give food, my friend has had surgery there, lets just say shes trying to take them to court for messing up on so bad.
The worst hospital ever – If you want to understand what we should expect with a new Mr. President's Health System, u need to visit this hospital. The Lincoln Hospital promises and Claims that they provide an equal health care, no matter what kind of insurance you have, if you have any. Guess what? It's true! You'll get care like you are a homeless looking for a place to stay! Like other reviews say - the staff is absolutely incompetent, uneducated and rude!!! If God Fobbid, your loved one is addmitted into this facility, be ready to take a vacation and take care of your family member. But guess who gets a paycheck? Nurses!!! Who will be charging you insurance up to the roof????? Hospital !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
although this hospital may have a bad reputation it doesnt matter. so what if the place isnt the best. if its a matter of life or death you can die on the best hospital ever. no matter where you are wen ur times up its up. cant blame it on the hospital.
I WAS BORN IN THIS HOSPITAL!!!!!!ROOM 102 – For some reason i was born in this hospital because i have never lived in Bronx, New York. My mom told me that she was going to suicide because of the deadly pain on her stomach when I was in there. The staff are pretty rude and careless. When my mom was naming me Edgar Diaz the nurse wrote Edgardo Diaz . "do" like come on. I hate that name. It's like a retared person's name. I don't know if the nurse was death, mentally retarded or just wants to do on purpose. Now I'm stuck with this stupid name Edgardo (which I want to stab it a million of times) until I'm eighteen (four more years from now).I'm going to change it to Edgar, the regular way.I will always heart Lincoln Hospital even though I never been in there, only when I was just born. Now I live in Jamesburg,New Jersey. It's really small and quiet. Why am I typing where I live, I should be typing about Lincoln Hospital. As I was typing, if u were born in Lincoln Hospital you should love it even tough it has bad service. So don't be a hater be a lover. I can't believe i just typed this whole thing. Man, I'm was really bored. I don't even like typing. Sorry to the people that just read this becuase this wasn't really good. I just have to admit. Oh well. Well thanks to the people who read this crap.Bye
