I was sent to Bridgeport hospital by my primary care physician to be treated for pneumonia which was not getting better. I went through the emergency department and was seen quickly, had blood work done,... more and put on an IV quickly as well. Every staff member I encountered was caring and friendly. The doctors and nurses seemed knowledgeable and explained what was happening and what was going to happen. The only complaints I really have were that the food wasn't great (it's a hospital so that's understandable) and my biggest complaint is that in my room the bathroom didn't have a sink in it. The sink was located outside of the bathroom right next to my roommates bed. So I found it awkward to be standing right next to someone else's bed while needing to wash my hands.
While I'm glad I only had to stay for one night, it wasn't a terrible place to be and found the staff to be top notch.
