Hallow’s eve is near and it’s during this time when it seems appropriate to share some ghastly tales with you. If you’re like me, it’s during this time that I like the thrill of a good scary movie or scary tale, as it’s a good adrenaline rush! I’m sure as a nurse, there’s no comparison to the rush you get for doing your jobs under so much pressure and under some frightful circumstances. Now couple that with where you’re working and the aura many of these places may have, especially at night.Now that’s spooky!
Many a film or television show has used the late night hospital ward as a setting for something evil or scary and no doubt, this is a good set-up, especially facilities that have quite a bit of history surrounding it. Can’t you see it now, it’s raining with lightning and thunder and the headlights of the car pull up to the entryway of the hospital grounds? The flash of the lightning lights up the sky and the sign for the hospital is seen, ‘Waverly Hills Sanitarium,’ you look up and see a figure in one of the many rooms. I’m shaking in my boots as I write this!
