Staff had reported seeing a figure wearing a black cloak in various parts of the new hospital, particularly around the morgue.

In November 2011, a witness reported seeing two nurses in old fashioned clothing, one male and the other female, standing by the foot of her bed. They watched the witness in a caring way.
