When I lived in Los Angeles I got a housekeeping job at a hospital. The hospital was home to many spirits or as we call them ghosts. As luck would have it I ended up getting the graveyard shift.
That first night at the job my supervisor Maria took me on rounds to get familiar with the hospital and also gave me a preview to the O.R. Floor. She of course, didn't give me a grand tour of the morgue because there was no need to. I got assigned the emergency area and all the other floors except for two maternity floors that I wasn't going to clean. We both ended up cleaning one O.R. Room that night and everything went smoothly.
On the second night I had to perform the cleaning duties by myself and as the night progressed I got a call that I was needed in the O.R. When I got to the O.R. Floor with my cleaning cart and went through the double doors everything was absolutely quiet. I got to the O.R. Room that needed cleaning and was greeted with a horror scene. There was trash and dried blood all over the place. There were containers with brown human fluid that looked gross. As I began to pick up the trash I found some weird hoses that I had doubts about throwing away. I'd been hearing people speaking in the next room so I decided to go ask them what I should do with them. To my surprise when I walked into the other room there was no one there. I shook my head in disbelief and went back to the cleaning. While I was making up the operation bed I could still hear them talking so again I went out to investigate and to my shock the room was empty.
I remember standing in the hall listening to the voices, perplexed with opened ears and wondering what was going on. Before I knew it the environment sounded familiar like doctors performing surgery. It sounded like the voices and noises where coming from a room that was right around the corner, and when I went to go check I could see no one! I could still hear the surgery taking place but it was coming from further down the hall. Since, I could feel fear running down my spine believe me I wasn't about to go explore the unexplained. So, I turned back to finish cleaning and got out of there with many unanswered questions.
How come I couldn't see the surgery taking place?
For some reason that unexplained night the thought of ghosts didn't cross my mind, thank God, because I would have run out of there without a paycheck and unemployed again.
