Yesterday I noted that at peak times hospital elevators can be busy and packed. Riders get on at every stop. And every stop is practically every floor. If you're germ phobic, as most health professionals tend to be, it can be unnerving when someone gets on a packed elevator and coughs, sneezes, snorts or wheezes. Howard Hughes and Neutropnics would just die.
Late at night it's a different story. Very few riders and very few stops. What's a little unnerving at night are the ghost riders. That's where the elevator stops, the doors open, but nobody's there. You know, a lot of people die in hospitals. It's not out of the question that they're riding the elevators with you. Spooky. Reminds me of the old Stan Jones song "Ghost Riders In The Sky."
