    That's so cool!!!! You have a "do not admit" list??? I want one!!!!
    I didn't know we had one at my hospital either until our pt (frequent flier and all) went ballistic and threatened to deal with a doc and make sure he was dead, he earned himself a " do not admit" to our hospital. He could go to the other branches of our hospital but not our particular one. Most nurses heaved a sigh of relief and exchanged some not so subtle high fives when we heard that.

    Hahaha! Ghost stories...
    The other night I turned on the lights in the hall just to go see what a patient at the end of the hall wanted. When I returned the other nurses asked why I had turned on the hallway light just to walk down the hall and I told them why.

    This is the reason: One night last October, a light had gone on in the last room at the end of that same hallway and I went dutifully down to see what the patient there wanted. I got to the end of the hall and went into the room and the bed was well made but there was no patient in there. And the call light cord was not even plugged into the wall as in there was no call light cord in that room. Of course I didn't wait to logically find out how it was possible that the call light went on in an empty room without a call light cord, I ran down the hallway screaming. The aides on duty that night asked what was wrong since I had come sprinting out of the room without turning the call light off. In between taking deep gulps of air, I told them there was nobody in that room. Two of them went in together and found the call light cord on the floor, replugged it and turned the light off. Later on that night, the call light in that room went off at least twice (guess who wasn't so dutifully answering it!).
