Ghostly goings on…
WARNING:THE FOLLOWING CONTENT MAY PUT SHIVERS DOWN YOUR SPINE – SO PUT A THICK WOOLLY ON BEFORE READING….
I have never seen a ghost. Never witnessed any odd goings on I couldn’t explain. So you may wonder why I have dead-icated a page to such things.
Health care professionals across the world have witnessed ghostly goings on, and I love to hear about them, so this page is more of a collection of other peoples stories. I can not vouch for there authenticity, but I can tell you that most of them are from well established bloggers who I trust.
Lets start with the legendary Nurse Ratched….her very photo gives me the creeps (not Mother Jones herself of course, I’m sure she is a vision of beauty)….
Nurse Ratched tells of patients who forgot they had died. Remember the times you thought, I’ll stop her ringing that call buzzer if it’s the last thing I do……and when nurses intuition fails, you can sometimes rely on the angel of death for a prompt…
Whilst Peter down under informs us the ghostly goings on are much more swinging!
Army hospitals too seem to have a bit of a problem with hauntings as the Queen Alexandra’s Royal Army Nursing Corps web site reveals….
Kendra tells us that…”at the hospital that I was last employed, in suburbia none the less, there was a “story” that said in the back corner of the CCU, 2 of the rooms were watched over by a ghost.
Now when I first started working there, I laughed my head off. “Please, ghosts don’t exist”…..That is until at the end of a night shift I had both of my patients, in those same 2 rooms tell me that an Asian women in a robe was walking in and out of their rooms all night.
Now, the “story” went that an Asian women had coded in the hallway when the hospital first opened and ever since, especially at night, you could see her spirit walking around.
Once again, I am not one to believe in these types of stories but over the past 3 years I had several patients describe that very same “image” of a women and always state that she had a robe on and walked in and out of their rooms at night, never saying a word. I guess I am now a believer in ghosts!“
If you want to hear more from Kendra you can find her at Gaga for Lulu…(Just don’t ask why it’s called Gaga for Lulu, you’ll come away more confused!)
This page is a work in progress…so either post a comment, send me an email, or write your own post and let me have a link….I see this page as a ghostly archive for health care…and in the meantime…
