5. Robed Figure Photographed in Abandoned Psychiatric Hospital
Peoria State Hospital in Bartonville, Illinois was a psychiatric hospital that operated from 1902 to 1973. At its peak, it was home to more than 2800 patients, many of whom claimed to have had supernatural encounters.
This photo was taken at the hospital by an unknown photographer. By the looks of the boarded up window it was possibly an urban explorer who visited the hospital long after it had been shut down.
At first, it seems that the photo shows very little but when you adjust the brightness, it appears to reveal a tall, figure standing at the end of the corridor. It also becomes evident that there are two glowing orbs present as well. Many people often report seeing orbs similar to these when visiting places that are believed to be haunted.
Over the years, Peoria State Hospital has become famous for several ghostly tales, the most well known of which is the legend of the ‘Graveyard Elm.’
The story goes that there was once a patient by the name of Manuel A. Bookbinder who worked at the hospital with the burial crew. When he passed away, over a hundred patients and staff who were attending his funeral all claimed to have seen his ghost crying under an old elm tree in the potter’s field.
Could it be possible that the shadowy figure seen in this photograph is actually the ghost of Manuel A. Bookbinder? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
4. Ghost of Patient Appears in Wheelchair
This photo first appeared online sometime around 2012. It was supposedly captured in the Clemente Alvarez Emergency Hospital in Argentina by a staff member known only as Diego.
Prior to the photo being taken, several staff members reported seeing the wheelchair moving down the hallway all by itself.
Around the same time, this photo was taken in the Kith Haven Assisted Living nursing home in Flint, Michigan. It shows a very similar figure rolling down a hallway in a wheelchair.
The employee who captured the picture said she saw it with her own eyes and quickly grabbed her phone to take a photo.
The apparition appears to have dark, sunken eyes and a wide open mouth. It also looks rather decrepit and thin. The white shirt that the figure is wearing seems to be too large for its frail frame.
If these images are indeed authentic, I certainly wouldn’t want to be a member of the night staff at either of these creepy hospitals!
3. The Hospital Demon
This spine chilling photo first appeared on social media in 2014 and since then has become rather well known. The are several stories of its origin however the most common one is that a nurse in a hospital took a screen shot of a security camera that was monitoring patients in the ward. She claims that she saw a demon-like figure walking up and down the bed of one particular patient. It had long black legs, and eerie slender fingers.
When she went to the ward to check on the patient there was no sign of the figure in the room, however the patient’s vitals began declining rapidly and the person passed away shortly after.
While many believe the nurse’s story to be true, several skeptics claim that the ‘demon’ is nothing more than a series of objects that are coincidentally lined up, giving the effect of a lurking creature.
What do you think? Could this photo actually be evidence of a demon collecting the souls of the sick and frail or is it nothing more than a mere coincidence?
2. La Planchada
Opened in Mexico City in 1847, Hospital Juarez is an active medical center known for sightings of La Planchada (“the ironed lady”), a ghostly nurse from the mid-1900s who appears in a perfectly pressed nurse’s uniform.
Over the years, La Planchada has come to be known for treating patients in the hospital’s emergency section, often bringing about miraculous recoveries. This photo is believed by many to be the only one to have ever captured proof of the ghostly nurse as she makes her rounds.
Like many ghost stories, there are several versions of tale of La Planchada. Some say she was a nurse in love with a doctor who rejected her and drove her to suicide; others claim she would euthanize patients to relieve their pain. Whatever her origins, La Planchada is known as a benevolent spirit and there probably isn’t a patient in Hospital Juarez who wouldn’t be happy to see her.
1. Ghost of Former Doctor Filmed in Honduras Hospital
In 2016, this video footage surfaced reportedly shot at the School Hospital Universitario in Honduras.
It shows a ghost-like figure emerging from the door on the right hand side of the corridor. The apparition seems to be aware of the camera person’s presence as it appears to look straight at them from the doorway. It then hesitates for a moment before walking right into the corridor.
Naturally, the camera holder seems startled as they stumble backwards through a set of doors.
After the video was released rumors began circulating that it may actually be the ghost of a former doctor who had taken their own life.
Many who work there believe that the doctor’s ghost still haunts the hospital’s hallways with reports of lights mysteriously switching on and off in several of the patient’s rooms.
This certainly is a very striking clip and if it is genuine, may well be some of the best ghost footage ever captured.
