What is it with nurses and ghost stories? Why does every hospital seem to be ‘haunted’ by a past patient or long-dead matron?
This Halloween episode of the Nursing Standard podcast explores why so many nurses have a spooky story to tell.
Our podcast guest Ciaran O’Keeffe is head of the School of Human and Social Sciences and associate professor of education and research at Buckinghamshire New University.
Supernatural and haunting experiences
