My son, who is a security guard at a local hospital had two experiences which he cannot explain. The hospital is undergoing renovations and the entire 3rd floor is closed to patients. The main hallway of the 3rd floor leads to an annex to an adjoining building and maintenance will use the annex to move between the buildings and occasionally hallway lights are left on. My son makes regular rounds to turn the lights off.
Most, if not all of the vacant patient rooms are filled with storage supplies, empty beds and equipment. No lights are on in any of the unoccupied patient rooms.
As my son walks the floor he routinely opens each vacant patient room, shines his flashlight into the room and then recloses the door. One middle of the night check when he pushed opened the door to one dark, vacant room and shined his flashlight into it he could clearly see a tall man dressed in a hospital gown standing and looking out the window – in an instant the (patient) disappeared. My son simply closed the door as a chill ran up his spine.
Still confused about what he had witnessed he moved to the next room - opened the door and shined his flashlight into that room. Directly in front of him was a hospital bed with an old man laying in it with a nasal (oxygen) cannula on. Again in an instant the bed was empty. At this point my son spoke out, “Sorry to disturb you – just making my rounds”. He finished his rounds on the floor and left the area.
When we shared this experience with a neighbor they said this was not the first time they’d heard of paranormal activity at that hospital.
