I'm a cna in a nursing home. I've only worked here for a year. I've come to learn that the facility was an old tuberculosis hospital for children. The building is over a 100 years old.
One night I was working the night shift and I left the apt room into the hallway. I saw something move in the corner in my eye. I turned my head and saw a man in black walking into the dining room. The nurse saw me looking down the hall and asked me what I was doing? I told her what I saw and she brushed it off. She told me that everyone sees him and are used to him. I have never seen a ghost before. But I saw him clear as day! He had a black long coat, a black hat and dress shoes. Recently a dietary aide saw him in the basement; he thought he was a lost family member. But disappeared when he reach the end of the hallway. At work now I look for him sometimes at the end of the hallway. I am scared but more curious.
On the other side of the facility the residents see children in the hallway and they also see the man in black as well. Every shift I don't know what is going to happen. The last time I was at work, I was in the bathroom with a patient and I heard a knock on the door. I thought it was the nurse. I called out for her to come in. But no one responded. I looked in the hallway there was no one there. The nurse was at the nurse's station doing her notes. That scared me to the point that I question myself. Am I going crazy? The building is so old and has seen so much death (elderly and the young). It would only make sense that there is a presence there.
