Hospital Entities


They say it's normal for hospitals to be a dwelling place for ghosts or any unseen entities. I used to work in a big hospital in Pampanga; I worked in the laboratory department.

The laboratory is in the basement area together with the X-RAY Department and the purchasing/Central Supplies office. The hospital is not picking up well because of its far location, so during night shifts there is only One Staff on duty at the Laboratory. One staff at X-ray Dept and the Purchasing Office is closed.

It was one of those nights when I was on-duty alone. The laboratory is a big place more than 120 sqm in floor area, so I always stay in the receiving area where there is a TV. So while I was working on the computer with the TV tuned in on my favorite channel. A while later I noticed that the TV had switched channel. Nobody else was there and I did not switch it myself. I just ignored it; I switched it back to my favourite channel and continued with what I was doing. When I turned to look at the TV again, it was again tuned in another channel. I started to feel goose bumps, but I acted as if I was not scared.

Then a patient came in, a mother and her daughter, she wanted a urine test for her daughter. I entertained them, charged the bill and asked the mother to pay it at the Admitting Office, since the Cashier was closed. She brought her daughter with her, while they were upstairs paying the bill; I heard someone is crying, like a voice of a woman. The voice was coming from the outside the laboratory, so I went out to check if someone was there, no one was there, but I could still hear the crying voice. I was the only one person there that that because the x-ray tech does not stay in his post, he stays at the admitting office. I was so scared so I went inside the laboratory again, and the voice faded out. After a few minutes the mother and daughter came back. I asked her to collect the sample at the comfort room nearby, when they came back with the sample I asked them to stay and wait for the results.

The mother asked me," are you not afraid being alone here? This place is so eerie..." I just shrugged and said..."I'm getting used to feeling scared".

When the test was finished I handed them the results, then I asked her to stay for a while so I could go upstairs with them. I locked the laboratory and stayed at the admitting office for a while.

I have also heard some stories from my other colleagues, not just in the laboratory but also in some departments of the hospital.

I do also work in a hospital for almost 5years and I really hate it when I have a dying patient... Because I saw them walking away from their body... Yes, you heard me right. My third eye is open but I don't entertain them.

You didn't mention the "morgue" in the hospital basement unless in your area, it's on the upper floors...It's really true that there are a lot of spirits roaming around inside the hospital...Well, I've not experienced seeing ghost inside the hospital but I could sense their presence all the time. I hope you get over with the creepy feeling soon so next time they let their presence known to you, you'll be as tough as a rock, it's them who will run from you... 😜

God bless.

I work in the ER of my hospial on midnights.
I have had some crazy things happen to me and stories from all over the hospital. I will be posting one as soon as the site comes back to accept new stories. Hospitals
Are the some of the most active paranormal locations in the world. I would love to write a book on my 10 years of ER experiences but confidentiality will not allow. Keep the hospital stories coming.

This is one of the reason's why a hospital is someplace empaths tend to avoid... I already have enough fear in my life. And are you really starting to get used to being afraid?

Sounds like an intelligent haunting to me. Could be easily debated though but in my personal opinion it sounds more closer to intelligent. Changing channels and crying sounds to me like a look for attention. Hardly surprising there was some kind of activity in a hospital, many spirits probably reside there, I guess that night one of them (Or maybe more) was active. I say maybe more because it is possible that there was more than one spirit, although I think it's more likely that it was a single spirit.

Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for sharing this experience with us. I too have had several experiences at the hospital I currently work at. When the tv changed channels was the maintenance doing any kind of work on the hospitals generators or electrical system in your area? The reason I ask is because in my job at the hospital I have to monitor a lot of electrical equipment that tends to go haywire when our maintenance department is working on the generators/electrical system. I look forward to reading your other experiences. God bless.

It could all be residual hauntings as far as the crying. However residual hauntings do not change channels on a tv. Whatever it was was aware of you and wanted you to be aware of it. Being that other people have reported strange happenings, no doubt there could be many spirits residing there. Hospitals are known for this kind of phenomenon being that so many people pass on in hospitals.
