‘WINDOWS TAPPED ‘ SAY HOSPITAL PATIENTS
Hertfordshire Mercury, 20th July 1951
Complaints of “mysterious tappings” on windows at Hertford County Hospital have been made by some of the patients , the Hertfordshire Mercury understands .
A member of staff said that after several patients had complained ” someone was tapping on the windows” watch was kept at night , but nothing was seen .
Other members of staff think it may be a practical joker at work . ” If so ” one of them told the Mercury ” it is in extremely poor taste because such conduct disturbs patients , many of whom are in the women’s surgical ward.”
Police however were informed and the grounds were searched without result.
