31 Days of Spook – Mental Health Ward

21 Oct

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?

      Nope. They had people come out from different companies to check everything out – nothing. It was definitely a mystery. XOXO – Bacon

      Oh no! I don’t think I would be a big fan of them. I’ve never been in one personally but they seem scary. XOXO – Bacon

    oooooh I rather take the stairs… I’m sure there is “something” between heaven and earth what no one can explain… but it’s there anyway… btw: my momma had the same job, but fortunately only for some weeks, then she could switch to another ward…

      It is definitely something that daddy will never forget. See, your mom and my daddy had that in common. Daddy did it for years and there are some great stories that he can tell that still blow our minds. XOXO – Bacon

    This just goes to show you that even ghosts can’t magically go through floors… even they have to use the elevator. Except in case of fire…

      Daddy says he will never forget that in all the time he worked at the hospital. It was something that will stay with him. XOXO – Bacon
