The reactions of patients and staff were quite different. The other patients were, in fact, suspicious of the pseudo-patients. The sensed that they were not “crazy.” The staff, on the other hand, paid little attention and had little interaction with the patients. While patients mingled throughout certain parts of the day. The staff would spend most of their time isolated inside a glass room, which allowed then to monitor the floor without actually having much contact with the patients. Those of the greatest importance in this situation, like psychiatrists, psychologists, medical doctors, and nurses, were those that would see the patients the least. The pseudo-patients noticed that the patents on average seldom showed behaviors which would constitute the diagnosis that warrants being institutionalized, however, staff seems to pay little attention to that reality.
