There are three punishments that are given when a patient refuses to answer Nurse Ratchet’s questions.

The first punishment is that the patient will be listed as 'potentially assualtive'. This will result in them being sent to the ward for disturbed patients. What will happen to a patient there includes the next two punishments.

The patient will be subjected to shock therapy and the third and last punishment will be a lobotomy.
