Police in Louisville, Ky., say they discovered a homeless man living at the city's Norton Hospital Monday morning. He avoided detection by pretending to be a doctor.

The man, Patrick Campbell, was wearing scrubs, a lab coat and a surgical mask at the time of his discovery, working on a computer. According to WAVE, a doctor at the hospital had logged Campbell onto the computer, believing he was a colleague.

A police report, provided to the Courier-Journal, indicated the computer "contained highly sensitive personal information on hospital staff and patients." Hospital spokeswoman Courtney Bisig countered that, saying the man had only used the computer to visit various websites.

According to WRDB, Campbell spent at least one night in a secure area of the hospital. He has been charged with criminal trespassing and unlawful access to a computer.

Of course, Campbell isn't alone in having found unique lodging. In 2012, police said a man in Florida was caught sneaking into luxury hotel rooms after the original occupants left, then charging extended stays to the credit cards the hotel kept on file.
