ghost story?

  1. Last night, one of our newer CNA's, Ana, came to me and asked me if "the patient in room 6204" was allowed to get out of bed.

    I said simply that no she was on bedrest. Ana then said that she had seen Mrs. Garcia walking down the hallway, wearing her hospital gown and waved to her (the CNA) before entering her room.

    I told Ana that was impossible because that patient was unable to get out of bed by herself. Ana insisted that she saw "Mrs. Garcia".

    I brought Ana to room 6204 and pointed to Mrs. Garcia's outline. Her bilateral AKA amputations where very much visible under the covers. Unfortunately, Mrs. Garcia had also died sometime earlier.

    Perhaps Ana knew Mrs. Garcia had passed away and was just pulling my leg....
