In our facility, we used to have a resident that loved watching/listening to loud cartoons. Ever since she has passed away, the TV in her room, as well as others, turn on every once in a while to the same TV station at the same maximum volume. While it seems likely that a living person is doing this, nobody knows who it is...and therefore, we joke that it is the ghost of the deceased resident.

ok this is my story Christmas 2016 I was hanging around in my garage & I had a pic of my mom on the bench from her funeral you know the big

portrait kind , I stared at it and said " come on mom if your here give me a sign not the dust ball in a pic sign but an unmistakable sign that you

are watching over me.

Well I forgot about it and I was hanging in the kitchen with my sis & my GF & her daughters we were standing there ^& the huge bluish sparkly

explosion happened just over our heads .

I was like what the hell was that ??? then I realized what I asked for lol.

after that I went to the garage again and said " mom that was awesome but I still need one more thing to prove it >

as I go back into the house I hear " what the f$$$$k as my gfs daughter is holding a string of Christmas lights in her hand

they were colored lights she plugged them in to see if they worked & they did .

well she hung them up & plugged them in & they were clear ?????? she freaked out , I just smiled & looked up in the air

I admitted an elderly gentleman earlier in the day to our rehab unit. He was completely alert and oriented. No dementia. At one point, he casually mentions that he sees ghosts. Ooook....fast forward to end of shift, I was in his room changing a dressing on him. He mentions a lady next to me. Ummm....I was the only one in the room with him.

He briefly seemed surprised that I saw no one. He, in all seriousness, shrugged and said, "Well, she's right next to you by the door."

After this, I called my patient's daughter to question if he ever hallucinates. She said, "oh, is he saying he sees ghosts? He's done that his whole life."

The facility I used to work for has been open since the 1960's. At one time, it provides many services, to include surgery and L&D. Now, 24 beds and a small ER. I personally didn't experience a lot. One time saw the door swing shut to a patient's room. Thought the CNA's were in there to turn a ventilator bed bound lady, and I thought ' great time to check her bottom!' Only to open the door to an otherwise empty of staff room. Another good one was the small chapel lights were operated by a dimmer turn style switch, and one morning I watched them brighten, dim, and brighten by themselves. They changed the switch the next day, but another co-worker reported a similar experience.

The second floor used to provide psych services, and one co-worker remembers numerous times of seeing a woman cross the hall from room to room, but to investigate and find nobody there. Went up there one night, and using a Snapchat filter, kept getting two pair of glasses of the filter to appear without faces behind them. Many people report the sound of an infant on the second floor in the former newborn room.

The ones that for me were the multiple patient accounts. The automatic paper towel dispensers going off when you were too far away... One patient witnessed this with me in his room. The Gtube connectors being turned to the wrong position when you KNEW you had it in the correct position before you left the bedside. Patients describing a nurse that by uniform or appearance matched no one currently on staff. The call light system was an old box at the front desk. Sometimes it would chime, but the pt in that room was not able to use the button to trigger a call. Other times, there would be these horrible sounds coming from the box.... Not every time, and not always the same rooms. So makes me want to rule out old wires crossing and ' just an old system ' I don't think there was ever a time I felt threatened or scared, though. Just a whole lotta little things that were

Man, I love these! Can't believe I just found this thread. It's my first nursing job in med/surg, code blue a few doors down, not my patient but I run to help. CPR has started and the nurse doing compressions is this tiny little thing so I ask if she wants me to take over, she doesn't hesitate to take me up on the offer. The patient is an older gentleman, I guessed mid eighties, there's these two middle-aged ladies who quickly leave the room (later find out that they're his daughters). The code team shows up. The doc walks up to the opposite side of the bed from me and starts to ask me questions about the patient that I don't know the answers to. So I look at him, and while I tell him that I'm not the patient's nurse, I notice this older lady standing by the window that I didn't see when I first walked in. She's in her eighties, wearing this blue and black sweater with a gold chain around her neck and we meet eyes for a second. She smiles at me. Now, you know that smile you might give someone that's kinda subtle and is really more a sign of sympathy than anything else? This was not that kind of smile, rather this lady actually appeared joyful, which I thought was weird. So this happens in just a short second or two and I get back to doing compressions. The guy never ends up getting ROSC and the efforts are eventually terminated. I hang around to help this nurse out with cleaning everything up. By this time the whole team is gone and it's just me, this nurse, the two daughters, and this man's body. The lady I saw, who I just assume is this guy's wife, is not in the room anymore. I'm gathering some of his things and I come across his glasses, I turn to the daughters and ask if Mrs. X would like to take them. They say no and begin to tell me that Mrs. X died just the summer before. So I apologize and explain that I just assumed that the lady with them was his wife, to which they appear confused and tell me that they came by themselves and that they were the only people in the room the entire day. No one recalls seeing a cheerful elderly lady standing by the window, or anywhere else for that matter. I like to think that maybe it was his wife just happy to be together again.
