The Old Hospital


I am actually submitting my mum's story because she hasn't got an account and even is she did it would take her 1 year to write down the first sentence so anyway...

My mum was looking for a job and she rang The Job services, she told them she would be happy to have a job anywhere as long as she got one. The person said there was a nursing Job going at a hospital called Trentham Hospital and because my mum did nursing it was a bonus!

My dad was at work the day she had to go to the interview so my aunty took her instead. As they pulled up into the car park the hospital looked old, abandoned and neglected. But they continued to go in. Walking through the corridors there was no one about, but they turned a corner and saw a man walking ahead of them. They caught up with him and asked where the reception was, he told them and off they went following his directions. They came to a little room, filled with smashed windows! Inside the room, this is the creepy bit... Were old people sitting in their chairs just looking down at the floor!

My mum and my aunty made a run for it... They drove to Trentham clinic which was just down the road from the hospital! They told the women at the desk and she explained to them that hospital hasn't been in use for over 20 years! And there would be absolutely no body in there! My mum still doesn't know who was in that room and she doesn't dare go back!

who was the guy that told your mother that there was a nursing job at trentham hospital.? Why'd he tell her that? Could HE be a ghost?

Just curious.

Esmeralda, I am the same way, ghosts and spirits, and demons are my life. I love hearing about them, and someday, I want to experience something. They are so interesting. Which is why I joined this site.

Anyway, Katie, this was very interesting. But like everyone said, why would the Job hotline tell your mom that there was a job offering at that hospital after it being abandon for so long? Usually they would have taken it off that hotline...right?

As for the people, they were more than likely to be spirits of people who died in the hospital years ago. Hospitals' do have some of the most paranormal activity after being shut down and what not.

Have your aunty and/or mom had any other paranormal siteings after this one?

Please return the comment and Thanks for sharing! ❤

Hm, why would the Job Services offer her and send her to that particular hospital? Wow, this is an amazing story. Has your mum and aunt ever experienced more paranormal things happen to them before?
Anyways, Good Story!

What makes me curious is... If it was abandoned twenty years ago, why did the Job Center hotline tell her there was a vacancy there? I've worked in one and any offers which are still standing are removed from the system 45 days after. Just curious, you know:)

as weird and scary as this story is I believe that it is quiet possible. It is an experience of a life time. You should look into the history of the hospital. I have tried but I don't think I will find this specfifc one I mean there are hospitals all over the world with the same name. I don't know were this hospital is but as you are from the uk I have looked at this. There was a dr. Trentham who lived between 1845 and 1912. He was a doctor. And the only Trentham hospital I can find is in vic. This is a hospital for age people which would explain the amount of old people in the waiting room. Sorry I couldn't help any more. ❤

Wow, that's pretty cool that both your aunt and mom saw that stuff! It's pretty amazing that there were so many spirits that visible, and the man who actually communicated with them! Crazy! As the others have said, it would be nice to hear the history of that place. Thanks for sharing!

Certainly seems to be a residual haunting if what you're mom told you was true. Pretty freaky bc both your mom and aunt can verify.

It's very possible something like this happened. Collections of energy in places such as hospitals are not unusual. Thanks for telling your mums story, stories about hospitals involving spirits are always very intresting.

whoa that's quite creepy, indeed. My best bet is that those were the spirits of people who died in the hospital. I think that all health care facilities have a strange vibe even if they're new, let alone an abandoned one! Cool story, thanks for sharing.
