31 Days of Spook – Mental Health Ward

26 Oct

Hello friends.  Today is a wonderful day indeed.  You have made it more than half way through my scares.  I applaud you for making it this far.  You deserve some credit.  So today, let’s tell another true story from daddy.  I know you’re dying to hear it – evil snorts.

To get through college, daddy worked at a local hospital on the mental health ward.  No those rumors are not true – that is not where he met mommy – snorts.

When he first started at the hospital, he worked the midnight shift. The mental health ward during this time was in the basement right beside the morgue.  That would bring shivers to this little piggy to begin with.

One of his co-workers  told him a story the first couple of days that he was in training that still to this day puts his nerves on edge.  They said that years earlier, a mental health patient had gotten out of their rooms in the middle of the night.  They went into the  elevator and hung themselves around 3:00AM. Staff of the hospital found the mental health patient hanging in the elevator dead.

Since then, the elevators had locks installed on them and they won’t work without the key being inserted to call for the elevator.  The nurse told daddy that every night at 3:00AM, without fail, the elevator doors would open by themselves.  Daddy didn’t take too much into this until the first time he worked by himself.  The nurse’s station was right in front of the elevator doors.  Exactly at 3:00AM, the doors opened all by themselves. It still sends chills up and down daddy’s spine.  And the elevators to this date, still open and close exactly at 3:00AM.  Nothing is wrong with them, they’ve been checked.  There is no reason for them to open at this particular time.  Anyone going up?

    Oh man that is spooky and it being located right next to the morgue is even more spooky.

      I know it spooked daddy a couple of times until he got ‘used’ to it. But then again, do you really ever get used to something like that after hearing the story? XOXO – Bacon

      I think it worried daddy for a while especially after he heard the stories about it and everything. After a while, he didn’t get used to it – how could you ever right? – but he did get more adjusted to it happening.. XOXO – Bacon

    Bacon, I work in a hospital and these types of occurrences aren’t as unusual as you think. We have a spirit that opens the E.R. doors on full moons after Midnight and one that roams the hall on our 5th floor with a squeeky cart. 5th floor has been closed for years by the way.
