Ghosts In The Hospital

Posted on August 22, 2008

I work at a hospital during the shift of 7 pm to 7 am in North Carolina.� So many times there have been strange occurrences during the night that just can’t be explained.

When we work on our floor, we split the floors in half.� We have the east floor and the west floor.� Well that night I worked on the west floor and my nursing partner had the east.� During the lunch hour, I was discussing a story about a Japanese Horror movie I saw the night before (about a nurse working on a night shift like us and how the call bell to a room that used to be occupied by a patient that passed away that day started to ring.� She went anyway and ended up comforting a ghost that was in pain.� She embraced the fact that her job was The Comforter–regardless of the dead or living).

The thing was I never got to finish the story, nor explain my agreement in the nurse’s actions and her accepting what her job really was because we got so busy afterwards with patients calling for this and that besides the pain pills.� Suddenly, the bed exit alarm button to the east wing rang suggesting that a patient had gotten out of bed and since my partner was busy with other patients, I went to the east side to help one her patient get back into bed.

It was dark on that side and as I approached the room I noted that there was no name tag next to the door of the patient.� Usually our Unit Clerk puts one there when he or she gets admitted but sometimes our Unit Clerk� forgets to put one there.� I got a little mad but that stopped when I heard a woman distinctly moaning in pain in a fairly loud voice.� All I could think about was that she must have gotten out of bed and fallen so I ran into the room, turning on the light as I went in.

There was no one.� But the bed alarm was ringing and ringing so I went to the wall to push a button and turn it off, only to discover that the alarm didn’t stop.� By then, the other nurses started coming down the hall to help and a nurse got on the intercom to the “patient’s” room.� After many attempts to stop the alarm, she suddenly told me to stop, pray for the soul, and open the window for it to escape.

Like I told you, we’ve encountered many strange things so this wasn’t a strange request.� By then, two nurse assistants came in, saw what I was doing, and stood next to me and prayed.� After we prayed, I reached over to the wall and pushed the button to stop the alarm. The alarm stopped! All of us looked at each other with surprise and relief.� The nurse that was assigned to the east wing told me later that a couple of days before I went to work, a lady in that same room had passed away after being in that room for a couple of weeks.� She had cancer and was in terrible pain.� All she would do all day and night was loudly moan in pain.
