Valley Baptist Hospital Ghost Nurse – Harlingen, Texas
My mom told me this story when I was little and it has always stuck with me. The story is about the Valley Baptist Medical Center in Harlingen. There used to be a nurse who worked there, she had been there for many years. One day she became very ill and passed away in the hospital. It’s said that she now haunts a certain part of the hospital every night. The hauntings were so common and people were so frightened by it that they had to close off a certain section of the hospital permanently.
The legend says that if a person would be using the elevator at night in that certain section of the hospital, the ghost nurse would appear and would wave her hand, as for you to follow her. So as the person follows, she leads the person to get on the elevator. What I’ve heard, she takes them down to the basement, where all the dead people are located. Once they are both there, she disappears and leaves them stuck in the basement.. How scary!

The pharmacy is actually on the 2nd floor.
First of all there is no basement at valley Baptist medical center in Harlingen. Trust me, I completed a year working there from graveyard shifts, evening shifts now morning shifts. I’ve had a couple of scares myself when I first started working there. Elevators 4 & 5 in central tower the doors would automatically open and close by themselves and no one would be around. You can smell cigarette passing through there at night. One time as I was doing my nightly rounds up in 2nd central I was fairly new I got lost being that the hospital is big. I heard someone or something whistle at me as I stood there in disbelief and scared. I returned back to our office. Another time I was going up elevator 5 4th central to do my round. Mind you, 4th central has been closed off for many years not sure as to why but it’s completely closed off. As I’m getting off the elevator I hear a loud snore like if someone was sleeping in one of the rooms. The unit is completely pitch black except for the lighting by the elevator. I start unlocking all the doors trying to find out who was there asleep. Didn’t find anyone but still heard loud snoring. As I quickly did my patrol I get back to the elevator and door did not want to open. I’m there panicking so I push the button and elevator 4 door opens up. As I quickly got in I push the button to take me back down to the 1st floor. I instantly feel something touch the inside of my palm. I’m still pushing the button so the door can close and nothing. Few minutes later elevator 5 door opens up like nothing. I said to myself, screw this and entered 4th central dialysis. I’ve had nurses in 4th East tower pediatric tell me they seen ghosts at the end of the hallway leading towards the stairwell. Day surgery is pretty creepy at night. You can feel like someone is watching you. Some of the nurses are scared to go into the nursery during the night by themselves. I’m a true believer in ghosts.
About 5 years ago my Mother-In-Law had back surgery and she was placed at the rehab facility inside the hospital. I was allowed to stay with her overnight in case she needed anything. I remember one night my husband came by the hospital to drop off some snacks for me. I went down to the lobby to meet him there. It was around midnight and he walked me to the elevator to get back to her room. The elevator that takes you to the rehab wing is pretty hidden and scary to begin with, as we were turning the corner to get to the elevator we heard it ding so we ran so we could catch it before it went up. The door was just opening when we got to it but no one was around, we looked everywhere. When I got inside the elevator we heard whispers and we both looked at each other and I guess he saw I looked really scared so he took me all the way up to his Moms room. My Mother-In-Law stayed in rehab for a month and a half but from that night on I never wandered around that hospital at night.
Nope. No basement at VB Harlingen. Worked there since 2005. Never heard such stories.
What year did these episodes begin ?
I think a lot of people have been visiting the medicine cabinet on the 3rd floor too much!!…😂😂😂
I was there for 3-4 days I couldn’t sleep and when I finally did… I woke up in a daze because someone was standing next to my bed I couldn’t make out who it was. They rubbed my head and then laid next to me. It was an adult girl, I thought it was my sister, then I dozed off and woke up in the morning when my parents came in my room. I asked them if my sister had came to see me and they said “no shes out of town” I told them about a girl laying next to me they said, huh how weird”
I spoke to Ameila Ernheart and her Mom up on the 3rd floor. She waved her hand at me asked me what I wanted to do and that was it she never helped me. I last saw her at HEB on Morgan this past year.
