  • I worked in the ER department(s) in the hospital. The hospital it's self was nice. The nurses were mostly friendly. This was a small hospital. They need travel nurses, as they don't have enough staff. However, they make it feel as if they are doing you a favor having you there. They don't have a ventilator, and ancillary staff (respiratory therapy, lab, radiology, registration) is on call during nights. This is a critical access hospital. Get comfortable with transfers to other facilities. Overall, nice people, nice patients even. But on the shoestring budget they have available, care is compromised. There is plenty of housing available. The entire town shuts down at 9 pm. 11/24/2016
  • Housing was approximately 1 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was private. Housing was located in city of Lincoln. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3.
  • I worked in the med-surg department(s) in the hospital. Very nice and friendly town. Small hospital with very nice and appreciative staff. Supervisor is very fair and accommodating. Charting system seems ancient but adequate. Love the job and the hospital. Town is small but cute. Everything closes by 9pm. Very friendly town. Lots of water around. If you like outdoor activities, there's plenty to do. Weather in the summer is simply amazing!! 07/06/2016
  • Housing was approximately 2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Cousy Courts. Housing was located in city of Lincoln. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2. Housing is just tolerable. All bills paid including cable and internet. Internet is great. Cable is all of 7 channels, all local channels. NOT cable. Landlady walked right in without knocking or making her presence known. Allowed my dog and two cats but didn't tell me about the $500 deposit. My dog is a prescribed emotional support animal and has rights to free housing but she didn't honor the ADA rules. It's old, rundown and small but tolerable.

  • Several places listed as long stay apts. in Lincoln, most owned by same individual. Nice pictures and such, but it's a crack house appearance with the worst location. Posts photos of rooms NOT in the place. I worked in the L&D/MS department(s) in the hospital. Nothing much in the area in winter, the town is pretty much dead. WalMart, that's about it. 45min from Bangor, nice drive to coastal areas. Had to Leave Town every time had time off.
