I belong to a medical board. And, the nurses there are sharing their ghost stories. I am going to share some with you .............

I will add to this thread.........
*************

The best I have heard is from a nurse who said that one night she was floated to oncology at the hospital she used to work at. She was given a patient who was passing away and had been unconscious for several days. At one point during the night the nurse went into the room and the patient was at the top of the bed and looked at her and said, "don't let them take me!", the nurse was freaked out and asked her who was going to take her and she said that black thing up there and pointed up in the air. This patient died within minutes.
===============
One night I was caring for a dying male patient. He was scared and I spent quite some time with him, trying to calm and reassure him. Eventually he calmed and I left the bedside and went over to the nurses station which was about 15 feet away. As I sat down I glanced over to him and there was a black shape standing over the bed, looking down at the patient. I was terrified, and am sure it was something evil.
=================
I used to work in and old labor and delivery unit. It was a small hospital, so often times I was back there by myself. I liked to keep the lights low and things quite back there, so naturally I heard a lot of creeps and groans. There was a whole back hall unused, there was also no access to it accept by passing me. I could hears metal objects clanging, and doors shutting. Sounded like somebody was getting ready for a c section.I could always sense something there with me it seemed. There was also a back room on the med surg floor that was never used. It was a patient room converted to a storage room. That room was strange... Call light always going off, and nobody near it...Whole hospital had a creepy aura...Maybe it was the cemetary next door..If that in itself is not strange....
=================
I used to work in a state inst for developmentally disabled. We were temp relocated to another building for remodeling of our bldg. Anyways...I was working one nite, 2nd shift. We had a locked pica unit. I saw one of the residents walking down the hall. Very distinct gait and very distinct yellow t-shirt w/ a happy face on it. I went into the ward to let staff know that they had an escapee. This was a serious situation because this particular resident, Larry, would ingest absolutely anything (from clothing to pens to belts to *ugh* a bird's head)...literally anything. He was also very reluctant to go back to his home ward (hence why I didn't bring him back myself...he needed two escorts). When we got back into the hall, less than 15 secs later, Larry was gone!! We searched the entire building! Outside, downstairs, all wards...he was NO WHERE to be found!!! This whole search lasted last than 10 mins because I had all extra staff looking for him. I was just about to call the house supervisor to let her know that we "lost" someone when out from the bathroom walks Larry w/ one of the staff. He had been getting his bath in the bathroom for the last 30 mins or so. Kind of freaky! I absolutely, without a doubt, saw Larry in the hallway. I never would've short-staffed the wards like I did if I hadn't seen him! Like I said, very distinctive gait, look, clothing. I took a lot of razzing that nite! They all thought that I was crazy. Anyways, come to find out the next day, after the story goes around that I am crazy (haha, gigglegiggle, funnyfunny)..............Larry had an identical twin brother who died in that building 10 yrs previously.
=======================

I work in a ltc facility and we have had numerous reports from pts that they have seen a little boy. This boy comes in their rooms, turns their call lights on and off, throw things on the floor. This facility used to be an orphanage!! Also there are stories of a oldfashioned nurse in the whole white dress and hat, would be seen going down the hall late at night doing her bed check and would go into someones room and stay there for a couple minutes if they were really sick or about to die. Well I guess one aide seen her awhile back and refused to go down that hall for a week, the persons room she went in just came back from the hospital still really sick.
==================
We have a white figure that has been seen in the medicine room, sometimes the carts are moved down the hall while you are in a room giving meds, etc. One of the male CNAs reported seeing a very tall black figure going from room to room several times. We have all seen balls of light floating around. From what we have been able to gather from old pictures of the property that the nursing home is on there was a mobile home park at one end and a cemetary at the other end of the building. Everyone has seen a little boy walking around but the freakiest part was when they saw wet childrens foot prints coming down the hall and followed them to the wall and there were footprints in the snow outside that came right to that place in the wall.
======================
We had a black girl, about 10 in ICU that was severely injured in a car accident. Lots of brain damage. She didn't die there but was moved to another facility after weeks and weeks.

After that, I know of 3 older black males, in their 50's, that, if they were even mildly sedated, would ask about the little black girl with the ribbon in her hair who was sitting at the foot of their beds.

One guy said, "she asked me how I was doing, and then got up and walked that way" while he was pointing towards the 2nd floor window. He paused, a wide-eyed look came over his face, and then he said, 'But I guess she really couldn't have left the room that way, huh?"

Personally, I think she was taking care of grandfatherly figures.

I worked in an ICU where a prisoner convicted of murder died in ICU 1 - and nobody would put a patient in that room after that cause the air was too heavy and the room was too spooky and 'dark'. It was so bad (nurses would refuse to put patients in the room even if it was the last available bed; they'd triage out a patient before they'd trust putting a patient in that bed 1), that the hospital eventually closed down the room and knocked out a wall to make it a separate entrance into the unit.
================
The only thing I've seen is pretty tame. I went in to set up a room for a new patient. I turned off the screensaver on the monitor, and it was showing a resp rate of 6, big, deep breaths, then shallow ones - like cheyne stokes. I thought maybe the leads were swinging on the floor, but they were curled up on the shelf without any electrodes on them, like they always are. It wasn't picking up telemetry, because our tele only transmits cardiac rhythms. The pattern didn't stop until we put the new patient on the monitor. Never saw it again. I've never seen any ghosts or other stuff, though. I'd probably pee myself.
=====================
was working in the nicu when we had a threat of a tornado. Some Nurses got pulled to go to a sister hospital in town to assist in the disaster plan. When all was over one of the nurses returned with this story: She was assissting the nurses in giving some meds before pulling all into the hallways. Every pt she went to said they already had their meds from that nice nurse in the white uniform and hat. She realized after she left that its been awhile since a nurse has worn a hat. That story revealed the urban ledgen of Nurse Betty. Story goes she had an affair with a married md, became pregnant then agreed to allow him to perform an abortion on her on the 2nd floor OR room.She died and he went to jail. She never left the hospital and was seen frequently. The local newspaper would do an article of her every year around halloween on her sightings. The hospital has since been replaced with college dorms. Hmmmm i wonder if any students have seen her?
==============

I hope you are enjoying these, real stories, as told by nurses.......
I still wonder why God does not send his angels for these souls.
Best to pray for them. Asking God to do just that! So they are not forgotten.
================

Yikes!!!

I have heard plenty of hospital stories from nurses that have been told by dying patients that there is a black shadow in the room, or else the patient is in serious distress about passing away. One man told me he worked at a nursing home, and when a patient passed on he could smell sulphur!!!!   cwy.gif

I haven't heard about a black figure but I've heard of patients seeing family members that have passed before them in the room with them when they are near death.

Those stories are just fascinating, but I hope I don't have to be in any hospitals esp as a patient anytime soon!  Could be a really creepy experience!

You know what is creepy too...

I have been in the hospital for various reasons and anytime I have to stay the night I think about all the illness and passing on that takes place there...probably (maybe) even in the room or bed/bedframe I am on.... combine that with the stress and grief of all the family of these people and it becomes a very foreboding place to sleep in the dark.  ermm.gif

Thanks for posting these--this is a great topic!  Seriously creepy stories.

My "favorites" would have to be the story about Larry's twin and the one about the little boy ghost whose footprints could be seen in the snow.   ohmy.gif

I'm sure there are no shortage of stories from nurses, doctors, and hospital staff.  I would think hospitals are right up there with battlefields when it comes to lost souls sticking around.  I look forward to hearing more stories if anyone knows any.

I don't like hospitals because I can feel all the lost souls in there, and it makes it a very scary experience :/

I can truly connect with the stories. When I was an EMT for my local hospital. I and my partner brought in a man who had fallen 60 feet thru a roof at a cheese factory that was being remolded. The man of course did not make it, he passed on.
However, while I was out talking with his fiance' she said they had argued that morning and he left for work angry and she did not tell him she was sorry. I tried to assure her that he knows she loves him. but she was just so distraut. When my shift was over and I had gone home to get some much needed sleep, The man appeared to me standing in the corner of my bedroom, I saw and felt him move over to the side of my bed. I sat up and looked at him. He spoke to me saying 'Tell her I love her'. I promised that I would do it. About one  week later I made contact with her. I asked her to not think of me as being nuts, but I gave her the message. She cried and gave me a big hug and thanked me. She said she knew he was still around and It gave her peace. We still keep in touch. He has crossed over and she has sence married.

Those were really interesting! Thankx for sharing.  Very creepy-especially the first one about the patient seeing the black figure in the air and the patient saying "don't let them take me"  That is really sad though that that patient was so scared before they passed.
That was a great story Rena.  It must've given that woman great peace to know her fiance wanted her to know he loved her.

I remember back when i was a teenager, I was a volunteer candy striper at  Aultman Hosp in Canton. At that time they still had quite a bit of the original hospital still in use and one day while I was there I was sent to pick up papers from the oncology lab. Because the weather was so bad outside to get to the oncology lab I had to walk thru the original pediatrics ward - it wasn't in use and just had a really eerie feeling to it. As I was walking thru the empty hall about 3/4s of the way to the end, I heard what sounded like a child crying.  There was no one around!  I booked it out of that ward and braved the weather outside rather than taking the short cut back thru the ward!

Here is why i've always hated hospital !!
I never seen anything wrong that scared me !
But the fact is were all sick, injured and dying people are just drives me crazy.
All the bad news , sobbing,, crying...and all this... plus the smell of  it
I dunno but i just can't go in I'm not scared but not able to stand it...it's full of negatives things there  and i don't feel good whenever i go there..
Plus it's quiet and...you gotta wait and everything....ugh...-about to faint-

SOFTLY as brown-eyed Angels rove
I will return to thy alcove,
And glide upon the night to thee,
Treading the shadows silently.

And I will give to thee, my own,
Kisses as icy as the moon,
And the caresses of a snake
Cold gliding in the thorny brake.

And when returns the livid morn
Thou shalt find all my place forlorn
And chilly, till the falling night.

Others would rule by tenderness
Over thy life and youthfulness,
But I would conquer thee by fright!
