    I worked my way through nursing school as a housekeeper/security. One time the other man on security got a call from the nurses in the LTC floor of the hospital. They said they needed help because there was a ghost. Like the night housekeeper is going to be able to help you. So he asked her what kind of ghost it was. She wasn't sure what he meant. He asked her if she could see through it. She said yes. He said then it can't grab you, so don't worry about it. Now if you can't see through it, maybe there is something I can do.

    The nurses weren't amused, but I think it is funny.
    This one made me LOL!! "Like the night housekeeper is going to be able to help you." Priceless!

    A pt told me she knew that her baby would not live even though she had an emergency c/s for distress. I asked her how she knew. She had seen a family member in the hallway going to the OR that had recently died and they told her
    they would take of the baby, not to worry.
    I had a little brother who died when he was just 6 weeks old. He was born with severe brain damage and was on life support the whole time. After he passed away, my mother awoke one night to see one of my father's aunts (who had recently passed away) sitting in the rocking chair in her bedroom, holding the baby and rocking him. She told my mom that she would take care of my baby brother. <3

    We have a room on our unit that every pt that stays there sees things. It doesn't matter if they are confused or oriented. Even some staff have claimed to have seen things in that room, although I never have. What they see varies though. One patient would always talk to people in that room that weren't there and two cnas I work with have both claimed to have seen the woman's deceased husband walk into her room at night. After she died we got another patient in there who would get out of bed in the middle of the night because she was sure her husband was in her room standing in the corner and she was afraid he was going to fall. She would try to push her bedside tray over to him so he could hold on to it. Her husband was alive and would be at home during the night. She moved to a different facility. Now we have another patient in that room who told me a few weeks ago that she saw a dog and a cat in her room just looking at her. She seemed amused by it. But last night she got out of bed several times because she said there was a woman walking around in her room. She wasn't amused by that. She was actually really distraught and didn't sleep all night. I felt bad. I don't know if we just keep getting people who hallucinate in that room or what but its always just that room. It's creepy.

    Might be best to turn this room into a office, storage or something. If not, how can you tell if it is the "room" making them see and do things. Or not?
    Would you want to be a pt, in there?? I think not.

    I had a call bell continuously go on with no one in the room. We'd go in to shut it off an no sooner than we got into the hall it was back on.

    We have a room which we think is "cursed" - I swear, it's where all our kids code! If we ever get an unstable patient wheeled into that room, everyone's hair on the back of their neck stands up. One night that room was empty but yet the TV kept turning on in there. Freaky. I am not a fan. LOL!

    I'm amazed this thread is still going on; I got here from Catholic Answers Forum in mid 2011 and have been reading it from the beginning since.

    And we need new stories!

    I want a story!

    I think I've told my best ones but I'll share one from my hubby who is a retired police officer.

    My husband was called to the scene of a rather gruesome car accident. An elderly couple were returning from vacation and had just stopped and filled the car with a full tank of gas. It was shortly thereafter that a drunk driver struck the elderly couple's car. The cars crashed and elderly couple's car exploded before anyone could get too close to the car.

    When my husband arrived at the scene, there were several distraught witnesses at the scene who had immediately stopped to help, but there was no way. The car was completely consumed in flames and the driver, the poor elderly wife, most obviously already dead and burning up. The elderly husband, who was last seen in the passenger seat as the car went up, was assumed to have met the same fate.

    One of the witnesses was a young man who had been on the road and knew that there had been two people in that car and had saw the whole thing happen. He hung around to answer questions and out of concern (or even stunned horror) and he was adamant that there were two people in that car... because, interestingly, when the flames were put out... there was only the wife's remains in the car.

    No witnesses had seen the husband escape the car-- he had appeared unconscious as the car exploded. No one had been able to reach him to get him out. He didn't fly out of the car. He was most definitely inside the car-- knocked out or dead-- in the moments before the car exploded and to the absolute horror to the witnesses who could not reach him.

    And then... weirdly, lo and behold... some yards down from the wreck, there is the husband laying back in the weeds, unconscious, but alive. There was no sign of him having been dragged to the spot. He was too big for someone just to carry. No one saw anyone carry this man to safety. In fact, witnesses swore he was still in the car when it exploded. How the heck did he get there and why didn't anyone see him lying there right away? My husband swears up and down that the husband was not laying in that spot when he arrived on the scene.

    Interestingly, the young man who was the witness (mentioned above), was the brother of a young nurse who was brutally murdered very shortly before this incident occurred. Personally, I think this theory is over-the-top, but somehow the cops decided that the ghost of this nurse was riding along side the brother (as a guardian angel, perhaps) and had made a ghostly save from beyond the grave and carried the old man to safety...

    I'm not so sure about that, but it is certainly a story that makes you wonder how that gentleman came to be lying along side the road the way he was, when there just was no way... no way, he could have gotten out with all the witnesses that were there...
