Ghostly Haunts at Laurel Wood Care Center
by Susan Dusak
I used to work at this nursing home in the Westmont part of Johnstown. When I would work 11-7 there would always be strange things going on. Most of the time when someone would die, the call bell light would go off all by its self at the bed where the person used to be. That has happened more then once. Also there is 4 halls to the building and the hall that they would call West Hall had a room at the end of it, that was used for Physical Therapy. Well at night when we would be doing our rounds there was always a black shadow going across the glass door like someone was in the room. We would always think that it was a patient, but when we would go in to see there was no one ever there. Some times at the nurse's station the charts would go flying off the shelves for no reason. We would even have patients call us on their call bells and say that someone just pulled their curtain around their bed. And it would be that way. We would always fix it, but some how it would always get pulled back around. I don't suggest working in a nursing home at night. I would not do it again.
