Possessed Patients: True Tales of Hospital Demons

While the woods are full of things that go bump in the night, forested areas hardly have a monopoly on the supernatural. If the stories from medical professionals are accurate, hospitals, nursing homes, and other medical facilities also play host to spirits, particularly those of the demonic variety.

A Patient Possessed

Nurses deal with death on a daily basis, so it’s hardly surprising that many turn to religion as a source of wisdom and comfort. However, encounters with demonic forces may also influence nurses’ views on the battle between good and evil. In a chilling tale on, one nurse shares her experience with a dying patient who was more than he seemed.

According to the nurse, the patient suffered from a variety of ailments that could end his life at any time. However, the man was terrified of death and raged at the nurses to keep him alive.

“Every time his heart monitor beeped, he would go into a rage screaming, ‘Don’t let me die! Don’t let me die,’” the nurse writes. “We soon found out why he didn’t want to die.”


One night, the patient took a turn for the worse, and the nurse rushed into his room with emergency supplies. However, she wasn’t prepared for what she found.

“This man was sitting about two inches above the bed and was laughing,” the nurse writes. “His whole look completely changed. His eyes had a look of pure evil and he had this evil smile on his face. He laughed at us and said, ‘You stupid bitches aren’t going to let me die are you?’”.

After this frightening outburst, the man went into cardiac arrest and died 20 minutes later. However, the terror was far from over. Five minutes after a doctor pronounced the patient dead, the newly-deceased man sat up in bed and started to laugh, saying “You let him die. Too bad.” What happened next sounds like something from a horror movie.

“We heard a horrible, agonizing scream and then you could hear ‘don’t let me die’ whispered throughout the unit,” the nurse reports. “Every one of the nurses that night was pale and scared. Nobody went anywhere by themselves. By morning, the whispers of ‘don’t let me die’ were gone.”

A Terrifying Vision

Another tale, also from, describes a patient’s terrifying vision just minutes before her death.

“She was given a patient who was passing away and had been unconscious for several days,” a nurse writes of her friend who worked in an oncology unit. “At one point during the night, the nurse went into the room and the patient was at the top of the bed and looked at her and said, ‘Don’t let them take me.’ The nurse was freaked out and asked the patient who was going to take her, and she said ‘that black thing up there’ and pointed up in the air. This patient died within minutes.”

The Mark of the Beast

Nurses aren’t the only medical professionals to encounter sinister forces on the job. A paramedic on shares his experience with a dying patient and a number many call the mark of the beast.

Like the dying man in the hospital, the paramedic’s patient was highly agitated, and he seemed to dread his impending death.

“We get there and it’s this poor guy in his early 40′s who is bald from chemo and sitting on his brother’s couch,” the paramedic writes. “He just kept saying, ‘Ooh. No. No. Oooh.’ and looking around the room, flinching every now and then like he was waving away flies. We got him to sit on the stretcher, and he said, ‘No, not now.’”

The man sadly crumpled to the ground a few minutes later and died with tears on his cheeks. As the paramedic drove the man’s body to the emergency room, he wondered about the patient’s post-death fate. That’s when things started to get weird.


“As I wondered if the man would go to heaven, I got a bad feeling, like darkness was creeping all around us,” the medic writes. “I happened to look down at the volt-meter and I saw the number 666 flashing. This panel normally doesn’t flash at all, it just reads voltage. It went 666, then .1, then 666, then .1, then 666, then .1, and then it went back up to 1200 or so and stayed that way. The uneasy feeling went away, but I still prayed the whole way to the hospital.”

For those unfamiliar with the significance of 666, many Christians associate the number with evil due to a passage in Revelation. In the New International Version of the Bible, Revelation 13:15-18 reads:

“The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.

This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.”

Do demonic entities prey on the souls of humans? Let’s hope not. However, many religions teach that evil spirits are a real risk to both the faithful and disbelievers. What do you think?

    That’s okay, I didn’t need to sleep tonight.

    Some of the best supernatural stories come from nurses, policemen, emt’s, etc. These are people who deal with life or death, sometimes in the wee hours of the night. Great article! Thanks.

    Yikes. Hey, where did that pic at the top of the post, with the beastie beneath the hospital bed, come from? That from a movie?

  • Gnosisseeker

    People that I know that work in the medical field have told me some very interesting things that they have experience. Most will not talk about it and only will open up once they get to know you or after a few drinks. That is only if the conversation comes to discussing the supernatural or something along those lines. I have told them that they should keep a journal documenting things like this and put it in a book.

    OMG! This was just totally creepy! No sleep for me tonight! I believe there is something beyond this life. But the idea of demons coming to take you at death is a terrifying idea. Whoa!

  • Samina Tabassum

    The black thing was the angel of death. It visits everyone 3 x a day but is sent back until it is time. According to islam anyway.

  • lynn

  • Pat Hines

    If you’re ever open to share I’d be interested in hearing your stories.

  • Dexter Mason Lords

    Pluralistic universe? Sounds interesting…can you suggest any easy to understand reading material on the subject please?

  • Maryam Miah

    If you was a good person eg helping people, giving to charity, remembering and worshipping your creator. Then at the time of death, the Angel of Death will be in a beautiful Form, but if you lived a life of corruption and disobedience to your creator, then a horrible Angel of Death will appear. Its all according to your good/bad life, is your Death.

    Demons are real, ive been visited by demons wearing robes, and they came during a time i was emotionally dained, they feed on negativity. Hell and Heaven are real, not many people realise that sin is serious stuff!

    I guess this thread is rather old but I’ll share anyways. I’m a CNA and I worked in a nursing home for a couple of years..I’ve always been religious and believe In heaven and hell..especially when you have seen as many people pass as I have..sometimes they’ll go and you’ll see a cutain flutter and feel peace..and others are well, not so peaceful. We had an old man who lived a rather corrupt life and was very angry and full of hate..but we babied him because he had no one. He passed and we got a new patient and she was placed in his room..she was young and was paralyzed from the neck down..we fed her..clothed her..the works..well one night we were all standing there and goofing little when we hear someone yelling help..pretty common in a n home but we were never able to find the source.. A few moments later we hear a rumble and a was coming from the ladies room..we all 3 ran and opened her door..when we turned on her light her room was trashed..a box of cookies that weren’t even opened yet were scattered about and there was water running down the walls where the ice pitcher had been slung. The shades were up and crooked and when we turned to look at the patient her eyes were wide and she was gasping with fear we walked over to her she looked in my eyes and said get me the hell out of here. She said roll my bed into the hall I will sleep there until u get me another room I asked repeatedly what happened and all she would say is there is evil in that room. It became known as the death room because several people had ended up passing was room 106. I don’t know how I sleep sometimes because that’s not even the worst that I’ve seen.
