PMID:  588868     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
An account is given of impressions and observations collected during three weeks in November 1975 which the writer spent with two of his chronic schizophrenic patients in a purpose-built isolation unit inside which it was impossible to have any idea of the real time. This experience gave the observer an unusually close view of schizophrenic and institutional behaviour and some insight into the natural outcome of staff-patient interaction.
