Do you get creepy feeling when you walk into a hospital?

For me, i just can't stand the smell which seems to stay with me until an hour...and I felt uncomfortable, i just feel that way, and sometimes I don't know why! Thus the thought of visiting a loved one feels grateful.... And I think the ambience of the hospital would add up to that feeling, if it looks old, dark and mysterious I think you really feel some kind of creeped out... How bout you? Do you feel the same? Happy posting!

yeah, i know exactly what you mean. i grew up in asia and most hospitals there were exactly like you described: old, dark, and mysterious with that typical smell. not to mention the sick and injured people that you see. i used to get creeped out every time i went into a hospital. now i live in the US and most of the hospitals here are nice, modern and bright, and they don't have that smell. so they don't creep me out.

Luckily no, I dont get that feeling. Just as well since I work in a hospital I think the feeling is different depending on your reason for being there. Being a patient, you know you're needing treatment and dont know when you'll get out, as a visitor, you are worried about the person you're visiting and seeing other sick people can be scary. When you are working, you can expect to leave within about 8 to 10 hours. I do feel as though I 'smell' of hospital when I get home but my family dont notice it so I suppose its psychological.
