Real Hospital Encounter
The follow is a story based on true incident in a hospital where I work.
I have a patient quite a few months ago who was transferred to my ward from ICU. When the patient came up to the ward she was telling us(as in the staff around) what she experienced earlier on in the ICU. Incident happened at around 0100hrs during night shift duty.
Patient X was sleeping soundly but woke up suddenly for no reason, she opened her eyes and noticed that there was “someone” in white with long hair and bloodshot eyes looking at her. she was frightened by that pair of red eyes and that “someone” was plainly staring and not doing anything else. So my patient quickly close her eyes and chanted some prayers. Another patient, Y from the next door room saw a lady at my patient’s bedside and was curious as to how come there’s visitors so late at night and thus kaypo go call the ICU nurse and ask. The nurse after hearing from the patient Y, look into patient X’s room and saw the lady and thus want to go and inform that visitor to go back as it has already past visiting hours. the nurse open the door to patient X’s room and enter den realized that there was nobody except the patient. so the nurse went up to patient X and ask, “auntie, where that lady just now standing here one?” Patient X was so scared that she cry out.
For the following few days after the patient was transferred up, she kept on having high fever, but doctor cannot find out the reason.
The above story was told by the patient herself and verified by the nurse who transferred the patient up to the ward as that nurse was the nurse who saw that “someone”.
