My husband works at a small hospital in Alabama. Although this might seem uninteresting, this hospital is always a source of interesting gossip and fascinating stories. One of these stories comes from the many nurses my husband spends his days with. Apparently, not so long ago there was a hospital in Cullman Alabama called Woodland Hospital. This hospital is now closed, but the nurses that used to work there remember a ghost named "Homer" all too well.
Homer wandered the halls of this small hospital causing distress in all who saw him. According to one nurse, she was walking through the hospital one day when she felt a coldness spread out over her and she suddenly felt distressed, as if there was something wrong. She turned just in time to see a door slam behind her and hear her coworker run screaming in the other direction. Her coworker reports that she saw a ghost walk by the nurse and brush up against her closing the door behind her.
These nurses aren't the only ones that felt this dark presence at this hospital. Many employees have reported seeing the deceased wandering empty rooms, hearing toilets flushing by themselves, hearing phantoms voices, and seeing ice machines start by themselves. The stories of "Homer" and the other ghosts that have wandered these now forgotten halls are numerous. It is my hope to do a part two of this story after I talk to more employees and go to see the hospital myself.
