I have worked in an ER on midnights for about 10yrs now and there are some seriously strange things I have seen and heard. One stand out the most was a sweet little elderly lady I had as a patient. She came from a nursing home and was well into her 90's. Now we see a lot of
Patients and people die on a daily basis in my line of work but this was so strange. My little lady was pretty sick but was still very alert mentally, we had made her comfortable and given medication to make her feel better, she was resting nicely when I walked out of her room and continued my rounds.
While I was coming back to the nurse's station there she stood at my end of the station looking around for me, I said Honey what are you doing up. She smiled and said "I wanted to let you know I am leaving now and thank you for your help." I kind of laughed and said Honey you can't leave, come on let's go back to bed. She went right back to her room with me, when we entered the room she said I think that man is waiting on me. I looked around but did not see anyone, she said he was standing in the corner of her room, still I seen no one.
I put her back in bed and back on her heart/blood pressure monitor made her comfortable and left. It was not 10 minutes later her monitor went off letting me know her heart had stopped. We all ran into her room and tried life support and various other things but she was gone. This was a shock to me, not 10 minute earlier this woman was up smiling, walking and talking to me.
I think she knew she was going die or the unseen man told her it was time to go. I was very sad that my patient had passed away, but somehow I knew she was OK where ever she went. I have some other stories of strange things in the ER I will write later on.
