I think many people know that all maternity hospitals in Russia
close to the so-called "Wash" once every six months.
This event is happening with a certain solemnity
new women in childbirth stop taking in the Nth
day already happy mommies discharged within 5 days
to no less happy daddies grandparents.
As one friend of mine says: “Walk, flaw - mother retired
The first three to four days all sing and walk, breaking
on groups by floors, periodically meeting in the smoking room.
Salads, champagne, sweets, tinctures, cakes,
loud music, perky laughter and in some places a dance ...
Walking everywhere, of course, in different ways, somewhere louder
somewhere quieter, it all depends from the head doctor of the hospital,
but the principle is practically same everywhere and pomp
partying can be compared only with celebration
The first week everyone walks and cheat, but on the second
the “wash” itself is already beginning.
Nursing staff washes, scrapes and paints the walls,
floors, ceilings and all equipment, and the senior carefully monitors
over the course of work and no matter in no case there were any
partying, bonuses and KTU deprived mercilessly.
Usually overnight in the empty there were three maternity hospitals
person: security guard, Doctor and nurse or midwife.
That's about one of those nights and there will be a speech.
Lena went on duty, one of the midwives was on duty with her
Rod.Zala, Olga, and young WOHR employee who
repeatedly made explicit hints to Lena than much
Annoyed Lenka climbed to the fourth
the floor in the staff room, changed clothes, drank tea, listened
to the ringing silence of the empty building.
He says it’s somehow not by oneself.
And I decided to go to another wing, in the family room to Olga,
to pass the evening.
Building in the form of the letter П, children's office where she worked
Lena, in one wing - four-story, Rod.Zal in another - two-story.
To get to the Rhodesal she had to either go down
by elevator to the first floor, walking past annoying
guard and then rise on the second, or walk on foot
through the entire maternity hospital from the fourth on the second, go past the compartment
intensive care and collapse in the family room.
It was scary to walk in the dark maternity hospital but meet
with a guard and listen his vulgar jokes
also did not want to.
Distracting yourself with different thoughts, Lena went.
Safely passing the fourth and the third floor, went to
second and accelerated the step in the corridor was dark, only
from the open doors of the chambers scattered bluish
light quartz lamps.
Somewhere halfway Lenka I heard soft singing, I thought
that Olga is working nearby, humming.
Went even faster.
The closer I came to the extreme the ward on the floor, the clearer
heard singing and made out the words.
In a low voice, stumbling a little, as if shaking a child
or walks, the woman sang T.'s famous song
Bulanova: “Byu - buy, sleep, my boy....".
The first thought was that someone was not discharged for inexplicable
reasons and they forgot to tell her but remembering that the last
mom was discharged as at least one and a half weeks
back, Lena was horrified.
And ran, praying faster run to rod.zala and catch
Running past the last chamber side vision girlfriend
caught some movement in the light of a quartz lamp.
The singing never stopped.
Having reached Olga, Lenka pulled her into the ward
but she said with a grin: “Don’t go there,
Our redhead was heard, passed, means baptism of fire!
Calm down! ”
Some time later midwife told Lena
such a story: “Five years brought back to us a woman in labor
such a beautiful girl, red like fire.
A long braid almost to the toes, Maxim was on duty
Leonidovich, and he, according to the old superstition forced everyone
women in labor to dissolve and even some hairpins
especially naughty, selected although SanPin is forbidden.
Here we have a red braid and in the family room raised, childbirth
were swift, even not to conduct an episiotomy
managed to burst terribly, poor thing.
Died of a momentary blood loss of three liters,
son in intensive care immediately they took it, but they didn’t pump it out,
although they tried their best forces.
Well, you know Maxim!
One to all with all my heart!
They took her on a gurney to inventory and left
before arrival morgue, nurse scythe
she braided and laid next along the body.
After some time, freed opera unit, and the nurse was called
wash it immediately before the next operation.
She went to the inventory (for each room
in medical institutions separate stock - bathrobe, rag,
bucket and mop), comes in and looks that the red braid
braided and hair spreads on the floor, she braided again
already put under the sheet and went to wash.
Returning, I saw again loose hair again
braided and went looking a pest that she specifically
harms, interferes with work.
Well, you know our orderlies, before them is even a general
stand in the rack!
The scream stood noble but no one not admitted work above
roofs, just once there was then a joke!
But she still doesn’t let up went into inventory - hair
loose, braid and come out Comes right there - again is unblocked.
And so until they took the girl.
The nurse chief from work suspended for a month.
And since then we have our own personal ghost.
And they called the priest.
Look, do you see crosses in the corners?
We draw each wash.
And the point is zero!
As she walked, she walks sings.
Someone saw a silhouette above baby crib someone
in an empty room on the bed someone just heard singing
but she is only employees and never parturients
No one knows.
It was rumored that someone of employees even with her husband
her contacted to magpie ordered her.
But all to no avail.
She is calm, our redhead, so don’t be afraid! ”
Lena dumbfounded by this a story without closing my eyes
spent this night closed resident and more
night watch does not take.
But still periodically hears stories about new
meetings with Red and in the next times horrified.
