So this is pretty disturbing but here goes. My dad has been in and out of hospitals for various health issues related to Parkinson's. He also has early stage dementia. He was in the hospital last year and told me that some of the nurses were cannibals and they only targeted people without family. He made me to promise to call him every night at 11 to ensure he didn't get eaten. He was as dead serious as it gets and my dad is not a bizarre or flamboyant person. I laughed at first and asked said if I were a cannibal I sure wouldn't eat old sick people. He actually hit one of the nurses, which is shocking because my dad is one of the most gentle people I have ever known. I only remember one time in my childhood where he actually raised his voice at us kids (and we deserved it) Time has gone by but the more I think about it the more I wonder. Who would know if these people didn't have families? This was in a military hospital. It creeps me out. The other thing I thought of, what if they are harvesting organs without people's consent, maybe that is what my dad thought he saw.

Why would they have let your dad know???

How could he have puzzled it out from a hospital bed???

It’s not like a horror movie where the villian flaunts his evil plan in front of the hero..

To run a successful operation like that would mean no one talking about it at work.

Then as you mentioned, why old and diseased people?? That sounds like a horrible idea.


My grandfather was supposedly a tough young man , but was extremely disciplined as an adult and he hit a nurse..

He was diagnosed with alshiemers though.

No disrespect, but your Dad sound unhinged. Sadly dementia can bring aggression.

Suggest you talk to the nurses and his carers who will be able to offer reassurance and care to your father.

Never heard anything like that before,I think it more likely that you father might just be completely losing it. I have dealt with mentally ill people before,my cousin has down syndrome and my friends brother Bob has schizophrenia.
Mental illness completely changes people,I knew Bob before he had developed schizophrenia.

After it took over though he would expose himself to people,become violent towards his parents and siblings,he even broke into someone's house.All these things were very out of character for the Bob I knew,but he was no longer the Bob I knew.

I work with nurses everyday.

Some have a penchant for tasting fleshy bits but not ingesting any...

Ok seriously though, No is the answer.

It must not be easy to deal with, but the likely hood of you Fathers presence of mind, or Cannibal Nurses?

I think once he struck out at a nurse, may have been the roadpost signaling his mental condition. Thats the way they see it in his facility IMHO

Good luck OP

Some health issues manifest like this. He may have a deeper problem going on. I would suggest speaking to his caregivers about your concerns. It doesn't necessarily mean he has something permanent. It may be something simply like a medication issue or a vitamin deficiency, but they can manifest as disorientation and delusion and aggressive behavior.

And if he was already having issues, then that could be what's taking place and if that's so, someone needs to know about it rather than you buying into it while the issue gets worse.

Delusions, paranoia and aggression can all be symptoms of dementia. It isn't uncommon for elderly patients to start believing their caregivers are stealing from them or trying to kill them (although of course in rare situations that actually does happen). If he's already been diagnosed with dementia as it is, then there you go.

In his mind calling him would show he had family constantly checking on him. My mom would be there during the day and family calling him at night. He apparently would hear and see things at night. It wasn't as if someone told him, hey we're cannibals. LOL. But seriously, my first reaction was how crazy does that sound, but as I think about it more.... I mean, how perfect a setting would that be. There have been nurses that were serial killers and such. I actually searched it and here is a story about a cannibal nurse. There was another about a cannibal police officer.

My dad met snoop dog's wife when he was in the hospital she "stood guard" over his bed all night with a chinese rifle. She was a blonde haired white lady. Marilyn Manson was also there.

Turns out they were playing a show last month in Phoenix, they probably broadcasted this on t.v. and his mind made up the rest . . .

I would say most Nurse join that profession because they want to help people, but for some it is probably just because it is a good paying job if you can stomach the many horrible thing's that nurse and other medical staff have to face and also the danger they do face from patient's.

But DEFINITELY in the UK.

I do believe people over a certain age or with certain illness etc are at danger in hospital these days unless you have bloody good private medical insurance, we have had a number of scandal's such as the so called Paliative care or so called Liverpool Care Pathway which is supposed to be limited only to those patient's whom are actually dying and can NOT take food or water by mouth, essentially they were starved and dehydrated to death as a supposedly kind and dignified way of letting them die naturally, murder by denying care is another way of looking at it.

That said there have been genuine Cannibal Nurses.
www.dailymail.co.uk...
www.express.co.uk...

And so you might also think on this, in nature a sick animal has predators and carrion eaters that circle it waiting for it to become weak or to die before they move in to feast, so what if there is a particular group among the human race that see gaining access to hospitals etc as a way to get there hands on human flesh to consume, likely they would eat excised tissue they knew was healthy if that is the case and murder - especially of an old and stringy patient would not be there way, great plot for a horror movie though.

Do not automatically assume your Father is just a little crazy due to his parkinsons, he may just have wanted you to stay in contact with him and simply been terrified of the hospital which as you get older start's to look like the dying place rather than the healing place and I suspect the last place he want's to spend his last years is in some sterile white walled empty and horrible place but rather with his family and those he feel's safe with, know's love him and whom he love's but as his condition does affect his mind that is a possibility.


God bless you and your Father.

Perhaps your Fathers fear's are based in real world experience and long term distrust of these facility's, I personally do trust most of the people that work in them but by no mean's all.

They insert him with a dose of something. Cause of death is the deflated lung that was already trying to recover. There is a part of his body like the leg they had to amputate. Supervisor says "here throw this in the bins out back" Nurse agrees. She puts it in her car. Drives home after work and puts on the candles and sits in the room.

My apologies, my title was not worded politely, and by no means did I mean to insult all nurses. I know there are a lot of nurses do the thankless hard task of dealing with sick people every day. Just as in any profession there are bad apples, like we have seen with police. There are nurses that have been caught stealing medication for their addiction, nurses that have killed people etc., I just wanted to highlight the possibility of a possibly darker sick side.

"He also has early stage dementia."

Sorry but you answered your own question right there.

People with dementia can become apathetic or uninterested in their usual activities, or may have problems controlling their emotions. They may also find social situations challenging and lose interest in socialising. Aspects of their personality may change. A person with dementia may lose empathy (understanding and compassion), they may see or hear things that other people do not (hallucinations). Because people with dementia may lose the ability to remember events or fully understand their environment or situations, it can seem as if they're not telling the truth, or are wilfully ignoring problems. As dementia affects a person's mental abilities, they may find planning and organising difficult. Maintaining their independence may also become a problem.


www.nhs.uk...

My stepfather died from complications caused by Vascular Dementia, it's a horrible way to go - from time to time he really wasn't himself and would say things about his day to day activities that were completely untrue. Basically, the memory doesn't read correctly anymore, things are jumbled up and the mind is incorrectly filling gaps.

Have you ever wondered if "crazy" people are actually the most sane of us all. Maybe they know too much which is why they are crazy, maybe we don't want to know so we remain ignorant. I know what dementia is and maybe that is all this is, but maybe it isn't. I like to keep an open mind. In my age I have learned things are not always as they appear to be. There is so much we don't know. A hundred years ago if we told someone about cell phones or the internet they would have thought we were talking about witchcraft.
