“A friend of mine, Jan, is a semi-retired geriatrics nurse with a master of science in nursing. She is in her mid-60s and has experienced numerous unexplainable events in her career. I have one story to share.Jan was the head nurse, during one stage of her life, at a nursing home. One of her male patients was in the process of dying. He had an abundance of family members visiting with him near the end and Jan would occasionally drop in to speak with his family while also assessing his condition. During one visit to his room, Jan was standing around talking with his relatives when the patient sat up in the bed and exclaimed, “Dorothy, what are you doing here?” while staring directly at an empty corner of the room. Several of those present reacted visibly and emotionally. Some cried, some were dumbfounded, etc. Jan asked why the reactions. One of the patient’s family members stated that Dorothy was the patient’s sister. She had passed away within the last 24 hours and they did not want to upset him by telling him that his sister had died.Jan’s story gave me a chill down my back. Her patient saw his sister Dorothy standing in an empty corner of the room and he did not know that she was deceased. Jan has other similar stories as do most nurses who have cared for dying patients.”

“There was one night when I visited my patient at Rm.1 around 4am to get her vital signs and check her IVF (expected level was half liter of solution or around 500ml). I noticed that it was not flowing and turned to check that the IV Line was closed. I was thrilled when my patient’s significant other told me that someone already came inside the room an hour before I got there (around 3am) and adjusted the rate of the IV. More startlingly, the significant other asked me why the other nurse (dressed in white uniform) did not respond when she greeted her and came out of the room without saying something. I was completely terrified of what she said and I told her that I was the only nurse on duty for the whole night. We end up looking at each other’s faces and speechless.”

“I had a young (35yo) patient in an isolation room one night up the end of the corridor. She buzzed me to tell me someone was in her room and standing at her bed and she was worried. Nobody was in the room. Nobody was in the corridor. Nobody was out of bed. Nobody was even able to independently mobilize on their own between the station and her room and nobody had gone past us. I brushed it off to settle her, but was thoroughly freaked out. Then two hours later I was doing her obs and we both saw the privacy curtain move and heard someone scream “DON’T! ” in the room. Neither of us were staying in the room after that.”
