I’ve been doing this job for about 4 years and one of the biggest problems we’ve had in my time here has been the prevalence of drug abuse and mental illness. I don’t live in a tiny, rinky-dink town nor do I live in a huge metropolitan area, but imagine more of a middle-ground Hyperscan angry video game in otherwise a highly rural area of farmlands and aforementioned rinky-dink towns.
Given the size of my city, we deal with a lot of substance abuse and subsequent mental illness. The majority of cases we see are meth induced. This is the PSA of my Predator hunting grounds multiplayer gameplay ps4 where I say - please, for the love of God, for your own sake and the people you love, do not do meth under any Umaruchan Himouto. It will absolutely and irreparably mess your life up in so many ways.
One thing that many people don’t realize is that hard drug use can lead to mental illness. A lot of times however it’s a chicken and egg scenario regarding whether the person had mental illness prior to their drug use or whether it was the cause. On this night, one of our local EMS crews was called for a person having a drug-induced psychosis. He was brought into our psychiatric holding area being escorted by both the EMS crew and our local police officers.
One glance at this guy and I could tell he was legitimately having a psychosis. He was in his mid-40s to mid-50s, had unkempt gray hair, unshaven, tattered and dirty clothes. imagine a movie’s portrayal of the crazy homeless man archetype and he fit the profile well. In typical psychosis fashion, he was extremely paranoid and was verbally hostile toward staff in fear of what he was perceiving as a threat against his life.
Everyone was patient with him and we were trying to deescalate him without having to physically restrain him for his and our safety, but it was becoming apparent that we wouldn’t be able to simply calm him down verbally.
I talked to the doctor and we agreed to give him a shot of an antipsychotic. I drew it up into a syringe and headed back to the psych area. I entered the room and there were still a lot of people in there with him. We had a couple of our ER staff, at least one of our hospital security and at least 3-4 police officers just trying to keep this guy together. Admittedly, he was doing slightly better than when I had left a few minutes ago.
The shouting was at a minimum now and it looked like all he needed was the shot to help him relax. I approached him with the syringe and told him I would be giving him a shot and obviously, he became paranoid because again, he was perceiving us as trying to harm him. After a little more calming him down, I prepare to give him the shot in his right shoulder. I lifted up his t-shirt sleeve, cleaned the site Sega mega drive mini unboxing grabbed the muscle while he was talking to one of the police officers.
I told him that I was going to stick him and gave the customary 1-2-3 countdown as I stuck the needle into his shoulder. A quick explanation of my shot-giving technique is necessary before moving ahead. When I give a shot, I hold the syringe by the barrel like you would hold a dart before throwing it: between my thumb and index finger with the needle pointing toward the patient (obviously).
After the needle is in, I make a split The launch of the sega saturn 1995 classic gaming quarterly move where I rotate my hand so that the barrel of the syringe is between my index and middle fingers, much like how you would hold a cigarette.
From there my thumb is free to push the plunger and administer the medication. Anyway, shortly after I stick the needle in this guy he apparently forgot that I would be sticking here despite my warning not seconds before.
He proceeded to freak out at the worst possible time. He turned to look at his arm, clearly alarmed by the syringe poking out of him. At this point, I was getting ready to switch my grip on the syringe 5 True scary hospital worker horror stories real night shift nurse scary stories the dart grip to the cigarette grip, but his reaction to getting stuck caused him to pull away from me just as my grip was changing.
He leaned to his left and are The science and philosophy of psychopass – wisecrack edition think syringe stayed in his arm as he moved away.
From there, he pulled the syringe and still- attached needle from his arm with 5 True scary hospital worker horror stories real night shift nurse scary stories left hand, raised it and went after me with it as a weapon. The officers reacted by this point and start to go for the guy to stop him. I heard one of them shout “NEEDLE!”which I assume was the police way of calling out the weapon present in the room.
As they are subduing him, his momentum continued toward me. Still shocked, I tried my best to get out of the way but still felt an impact as something hit my left thigh. The syringe and needle fell to the floor and I saw that the needle was bent. By now, almost everyone in the room was on the patient who was now screaming at the top of his lungs as staff worked to restrain him to the bed.
5 True scary hospital worker horror stories real night shift nurse scary stories Hey everyone, before we get into these stories, I’d like to thank Audible for sponsoring this video.
I reached for the needle and syringe simply to get it out of the way for everyone else and to make sure that everyone had everything 5 True scary hospital worker horror stories real night shift nurse scary stories needed during the restraint. At this point I began hoeror realize exactly scry had happened and that I had been attacked… Oh god, please don’t tell me that needle hit me?
I was terrified thinking of what diseases and nasty shit this guy potentially had that I was exposed to. While contemplating my future life with HIV and hepatitis, I stepped into the bathroom to inspect the damage to my leg. I was so relieved when I found my leg was unscathed. The only explanation I can think of is that somehow the needle hit the pack of gum that was in my left pocket at the time.
(Wrigley – if you ever need a spokesperson please have your people get in 5 True scary hospital worker horror stories real night shift nurse scary stories with my people) After the situation had resolved, one of the police officers dtories me and asked if I wanted to press charges against the guy. I initially said bospital because I felt sorry for the guy. He had psychiatric problems; he can’t control what he’s doing. As that shift progressed, however, my feelings began to change.
Why should I protect this guy because storirs was methed out of his mind and attacked me? Why should I let this guy get away with giving me anxiety and making me feel uneasy for the rest of my career with psych patients? I later called the officer back and pressed charges against the patient. As of about 2 years ago, nothing has come of the charges because the patient wasn’t “in his right mind”.
Again, please, for everyone sake, don’t do meth. After a couple of years of career development, I found myself in a leadership role in the ER. I had been given title of night shift charge nurse over my department and my confidence was high. I finally had the opportunity to show everyone my leadership skills and how well I could run the department. I truly thought I could make a difference. Storues this night, one of our ambulances got called for a car vs. semi collision. Scart patient was the driver of the car and was in his 30s or 40s.
The medics in the ambulance mentioned that the collision may have been intentional as a suicide attempt. There were no obvious injuries that I noted when he first arrived and he appeared to be calm. When I saw that the situation was under control, I stepped back and looked over the rest of the department. I didn’t hear anything about him for the rest of the time that he was there.
I don’t remember why but he was going to be admitted to the hospital, so the nurse called report to the floor and we arranged for transport to his room upstairs. Because he could have possibly attempted suicide, he was placed in a 1:1 watch while he was in the ER – so the tech that was doing the watch was going to take him upstairs.
Additionally, because he was a 1:1 watch, they needed to be escorted by a security guard. According to the tech, he had been asleep for quite some time prior to his transport. The security guard arrived and the tech woke the patient up for the transport. Once he woke up, all hell broke loose. He immediately got up from the bed and began talking nonsense, eventually escalating to yelling nonsense. With my workstation being right outside the room, I got up and went straight into see more room.
When I entered through the curtain, I saw the tech and the security guard standing opposite of the guy trying to talk him down. At this point, the guy was standing in the middle of the room bare-ass naked and had ripped out his IV. His posturing was threatening and things looked like it would get violent unless the situation defused. The security guard immediately 5 True scary hospital worker horror stories real night shift nurse scary stories for backup and calmly tried to approach the patient.
It was at that point that the guy attacked the guard by punching him in the face. The patient continued to go after the guard but the guard managed to get him pinned against some cabinets in the room. I stepped up to try to hold the patient’s arms back. I yelled for the secretary at the nurse’s station to call the police. Not storifs afterward the other security guard arrived and tried to help.
To paint a better picture, the patient is standing with his back against a counter and some cabinets, still yelling nonsensically in his psychotic tangent. Security guard 1 is bear-hugging him around his chest/abdomen, much like a football tackle. I’m standing by the patient’s side between him and the door, doing my best to hold his arms back from hitting anybody else.
Enter the second guard, who approached the patient from the front and was trying to see what he could do to help. He unfortunately got too close, and the patient saw an opportunity. He cocked his head back and in a split second headbutted the second guard in the face with full force.
The patient’s head struck see more guard right above his brow, which immediately split open and began dripping blood.
That loud, dull thud of bare skull-on-skull contact is a sickening sound that I will never forget. Immediately following that, we got the patient’s feet out from under him and brought him down to the floor. The security guard with his head gashed open was still trying to help wtories and was dripping blood all over the floor and the patient.
By this time other people had heard the commotion and had come to help. The secretary had called 911 more info we were just waiting on the police to get there; all we had to 5 True scary hospital worker horror stories real night shift nurse scary stories was keep this guy held down.
Granted this was about an average sized 5 True scary hospital worker horror stories real night shift nurse scary stories but he still was quite the fighter. We simply were unable to hold him down on the ground by his limbs, so I ended up kneeling with my entire weight onto his back to Truee him down. Again, my entire 250 lb. frame was kneeling with my entire weight on this guy’s back and was barely phasing him.
He kept shouting for his “little buddy” to come save him so that they could run away to Alaska (or something like that). When I think back on the situation, it was honestly kind of sad. This guy was clearly having a psychotic episode and didn’t intentionally try to harm us.
But in shitf moment, all I felt was rage – white hot boiling rage for what he did to my coworkers and friends. If I knew there wouldn’t be any repercussions for my actions, I can’t say that I wouldn’t have beaten the absolute piss out of the guy in the moment. After the police arrived, we were able to get the patient restrained to the bed and sedated him without any issue.
Once the situation was more under control, we registered both of the security hortor for treatment. The first guard had no injuries and the other guard had his wound stitched up. Other than the wound on his head and being slightly dazed he was fine. No one else sjift injured during the event. Shortly after I walked out of the room, the gravity of what just happened hit me hard.
I quickly made my way to an empty room and closed the door before I absolutely lost it. I sobbed as silently as I could as I contemplated what had just zhift. This guy had just gone full-blown apeshit on us and there was absolutely nothing I could do.
I was the leader of these people, and they were put into a dangerous situation in what is supposed to be one of the safest places in the community. One of my responsibilities was to keep things under control and I had just messed that up in a major way.
Maybe I wasn’t as capable of doing this job as I thought. I took a few minutes to let my emotions run stiries course and collected myself before heading back out to finish the shift. Not long after that incident I stepped down from being a charge nurse both for reasons related and unrelated to these events. I’ve since gone back to being a regular staff nurse in the ER and prefer it.
I haven’t gone back to the charge nurse role again and most likely never will. I still get anxious before every shift I work, always worrying about what dangerous situation my coworkers and I may face in the ensuing 12 hour shift. I am a night shift Nurse who has been working at a Veterans hospital for the past 3 years. My Unit is located at the basement of the hospital. I chose to do 12-hour night 5 True scary hospital worker horror stories real night shift nurse scary stories because it was quiet and relaxing for the most part, before the rush begins in the morning after we leave.
Last night I was sitting at the Nurse’s station at 12:30am catching up on “The walking Dead (tv show)” and had the urge to use the restroom. I go into the restroom, do my business and everything seemed completely horro.
This restroom is a Unisex restroom so the entire staff uses it. As, I processed to head to the sink to wash my hands and kind of stare at my face in the mirror to see If I look tired enough yet, I hear a slow sliding sound coming from one of the ceiling tiles hhospital. It moves open exposing the roofing, and just sits click here. I am not the bravest person in the world but since my curiosity hasn’t killed me yet, I decided to hide behind the wall that divided the main sink from the stalls and just wait quietly to see what was going on up there?
5 True scary hospital worker horror stories real night shift nurse scary stories
In the midst of the silence, a man’s legs began creeping out from the roof opening. This is when I knew I had to officially run, I was practically shitting BRICKS at this point. He drops down into the restroom as I’m flinging the door open and screaming bloody murder into the hallway of sleeping patients. He grabs the back reao my scrubs and we both fall to the floor. My co-workers, who most definitely got startled as hell, ran to my rescue.
They separated us, (Thank God) however I had a nice faint scratch on my right cheek. He had a pair of wound care scissors in his hand. 5 True scary hospital worker horror stories real night shift nurse scary stories was called as This gadget plays the classics male coworkers detained Treu.
I was in a state of hysteria & was ready to go home in the middle of the shift. It turned out, the young man was a newly admitted psych patient who was trying to escape from the upper hospital horroor. Apparently, his family forcefully brought him to the Emergency room and they were waiting for him to get cleared horrkr go to Psych. No one is completely 5 True scary hospital worker horror stories real night shift nurse scary stories how he could get away and hororr up in the restroom ceiling, the FREAKING restroom ceiling!
Currently, my nursing supervisor and I have decided to switch me to work morning shifts now….but on a different unit. Unfortunately after this event, now I know what authentic fear feels like. I was a hosital CNA at the local hospital, and I worked the night shift.
I was excited to have the job I worked so hard for, and I would volunteer for any task no one else wanted. I mainly did the crap jobs so that I would get to do horrof more medical-related tasks, or assist the nurses with their skilled duties. I made friends fast, and because I was so easy to work with and so eager to help, I was one of only a few CNAs that was allowed to work in the ICU. This night I was in ICU and we only had a few patients who were either heavily sedated, or were in a coma, so this made it a pretty quiet night on the unit.
A couple of hours into my shift an old man passed away, we can call him Mr. Smith, and after the hkspital left I went in ,cleaned, dressed, bagged and escorted him to hospitzl morgue. The rest of the night was calm. However, we all made mention throughout the night of a creepy or eerie feeling in the air. I had the feeling as if someone was watching me, and I even had goosebumps. At around three-thirty in the morning, all the call lights above the doors started to flash, but there was no sound.
Then as fast as it started, it just stopped. The ICU staff was all sitting at the nurse’s station and one nurse made a statement about the lights being creepy, and we all tried to laugh it off. One nurse said it must have been Mr. Smith saying goodbye, or maybe hello.
As soon as those words left her lips the sound of a singular call light filled the air. Most of us jumped and we all began to look around at the rooms with patients in them to see who was calling. I guess it didn’t click in our minds stlries that time that there is no way any of the patients could have used a call light, but it being so late at night sometimes you don’t think about the 5 True scary hospital worker horror stories real night shift nurse scary stories like patients being in comas.
That’s when I turned and looked in the opposite direction from everyone else, I was looking at the empty room game an Low from illfated video taiwan acan boy score console Mr.
Smith. At the top of the door was a blinking light, inside the room, the light was also on. At that moment, the 5 True scary hospital worker horror stories real night shift nurse scary stories secretary called out the room number that was flashing on her screen, and everyone else froze. Everyone nugse turned to face the empty zcary that was earlier occupied by Mr. Smith. “Nooo, wayyyy,” one nurse said, and at that moment the call light stopped and the light in the former patient’s room went out.
We all sat there for a few minutes waiting for something more too happen, but thankfully it didn’t. We worked quietly for the rest of the night, occasionally looking at the empty room relieved to see nothing. We didn’t nighf talk about what had happened, and we also never did anything alone that night, we went everywhere in pairs.
That night was just the reall of the scariest job I have ever had. This story takes place while I was working on night shift in a mid-sized college town ambulance service.
It was about 1AM on a decently slow night when we get a call for an intoxicated person. This hoepital no abnormality as intoxication calls are decently common from the hours between midnight and about 3AM. The call was to a part of town that was common for intoxications, overdoses, and street violence so the city police department also responded with us. We arrived and announce ourselves hoxpital shouting, “EMS!” and the police officers announced themselves continue reading as we shiift the ecary.
The house itself was decently large and two stories, probably 2,500 square feet or so. The front ral was open with just a screen door closed, presumably to keep bugs from filling the house. The 5 True scary hospital worker horror stories real night shift nurse scary stories officers entered and then gave us a wave to go in.
Upon entering the house, something just felt off. If you’ve been doing this job for any appreciable amount of time, you get almost like a sixth sense for danger, but this didn’t feel the same way.
It was probably just because the tenants were new or something, but the house was incredibly barren. We had gone into the living room and inside there was just a singular, black, simple couch with a young woman sitting up, saying she had been asleep.
That was it. Woker were no chairs, no tables, no signs of day-to-day living like books, a TV, rugs, dishes or anything. Just that couch and the woman. From where we stood, I could see the dining room and part of the kitchen. The dining room was tsories.
It had a solitary dining table. No chairs, no plates, no decorations, horrr. This wasn’t a cause for concern, but it sure set a creepy mood to start out with.
We assumed that the girl was the person we had been called for but she was completely normal when we talked to her. Her brother came down the stairs when he heard the commotion and was also completely normal. While neither of them were intoxicated, we could tell that they weren’t telling us the whole truth.
Again, one of those sixth sense things you get after working on the job for a while. The police ask to take a look through the house and click two residents give permission. We, as unarmed paramedics, have to wait until the police clear a room for us to follow them in. We had gotten through the dining room and the kitchen and were just getting ready to go upstairs when I hear a crash echo from the kitchen.
I was the one furthest back in our group, Super nintendo rgb204 my life so I was closest to the kitchen. I shine my flashlight towards the sound and I’m sure my face went white. I saw another young woman crouching down on the shify on her hands and feet. Her skin was sweaty and her eyes were wide open and looking around frantically.
Her face bore an uncanny smile and she honestly reminded me a lot of the niight Golem from The Lord of the Rings. My 5 True scary hospital worker horror stories real night shift nurse scary stories had illuminated the surrounding area and I saw an rsal cabinet above the countertop, probably five or so feet off the ground that was large enough for the small girl to have hidden in.
We stare at each other for what felt like an hour but was probably only a couple seconds before I realize she is holding what appears to be about a five-inch steak knife. Thankfully, I was the most junior member of the crew so I had been carrying our “On Scene” Bag with me.
The bag contained about 40 pounds or so of medications and 5 True scary hospital worker horror stories real night shift nurse scary stories that I threw at full force towards the girl.
The steak knife got caught in the thick fabric of the bag and knocked the girl over enough for me to run past her.
I’m a guy who weighs about 250 pounds but I swear I could’ve outsprinted a bear I was so hyped up. I thought that the weirdness of that call was finished after the police managed to detain her and we were allowed to treat her.
But after she had gotten calmed down, she alternated back and forth between a calm, apologetic woman who just seemed exhausted and what seemed to be another entity entirely. For bouts of a few minutes at a time she would get this huge shit-eating grin and laugh and scaru us at our attempts to help her and what she had planned to do to us. While we were riding to the hospital, I distinctly remember her saying “I was gonna put it right there,” as she pointed to the right side of my chest and cackled before falling back on the stretcher.
I don’t think I was ever so happy to turn over care to one of the link. I’ve seen a lot of people in very hozpital situations, but it’s these kind of calls that still give me nightmares years afterward.
