Is this a trick of the light? Or an apparition of a little girl who had died of cancer? Either way, I won't be getting a check up at this hospital any time soon.
This picture was taken from the inside of a room at an insane asylum. The scratches at the door are from a patient. That poor soul clearly wanted out.
What's the most disturbing part of this image? The terrifying creature on top of the patient? Or that the patient reportedly died later that day?
Operating room walls sometimes used to be painted like that. It was to make the patients feel "at ease." Personally, I'd prefer if the place where I was going to be cut open didn't look like it had been tagged by a five-year-old.
What is that etheral light? A ghost, watching over the patient? Or the patient's soul leaving his body?
Apparently, this asylum resident was an artist.
Life in an asylum can be lonely. So this patient drew some new friends.
What's more disturbing than this lobotomy?
The fact that it is being done by Dr. Walter Freeman. The man who invented lobotomies.
This is a picture of the abandoned Brownsville Hospital in Pennsylvania. The reason for its abandonment? Serious medical malpractice violations.
You think that straightjackets are bad? Back in the 19th century, they used restraint chairs. This particular restraint chair was located at the West Riding Lunatic Asylum, in Wakefield, Yorkshir, UK.
This picture was taken at Waverly Hills Sanitorium, in Louisville, Kentucky. Waverly Hills is considered the most haunted hospital in the USA. With apparitions like this, it isn't hard to see why.
Plants now grow in the sinks of this old lunatic asylum. How would you like to spend an evening there?
Yeah, I would pass too.
It's bad enough to see a ghost in a hospital. It's much worse to see a ghost in a straightjacket. That is what happened at the Old Fort Douglas Hospital in Salt Lake City.
This picture was also taken at Waverly Hills. It was taken in 2006 by paranormal investigators. The spirit is believed to be Mary Lee, a former patient.
What is this? A black ghost? The grim reaper? Or just a weird shadow.
I really wish it was just a weird shadow.
We'll end with a final shot at Waverly Hills. This picture of a child was accidentally taken by a member of a tour group in 2014.
There were no children in that tour group.
