This clearly weakens Nurse Ratched’s powers, and she sees him as a large threat. One way or another, McMurphy tends to instigate changes of scenery. He manages to move everyone away from her music and watchful eye into the old tube room.
This could be taken on one level as Chief just hallucinating so bad he can’t get to bed, or, it could have a deeper, more meaningful allusion. Chief, being manipulated and debilitated by the fog, could be taken as him being weakened and beatdown by the harsh conformity enforced by the ward’s head nurse. But Chief states that none of the other patients complain about the fog, and that McMurphey can’t understand why the others don’t want to act out, or even laugh: “That’s why McMurphey can’t understand, [the patients] wanting to be safe. He keeps trying to drag us out of the fog, out in the open where we’d be easy to get at”(Kesey 114). This states how McMurphey is trying to help the others out of the dehumanizing pit of rules and regulations put in place by the Big Nurse, and how the other patients have given into her rule.
From the outside, they can seem insane and often without hope, but that typically comes from misunderstanding them because of poor communication.

Blanche's constant dependency on men and her infatuation with Shep Huntleigh makes one question if her so called savoir is real or imaginary. Blanche's "[dependency] on the kindness of strangers"(178).
During his journey, he faces many difficulties and experiences many problems he did not know existed. Sameness is atrocious because it requires people to follow the rules, even when they believe they are not right, and because people don’t get a choice in the decisions. Sameness is a disadvantage because people always have to follow rules, even when they do not believe it is ethical. The narrator states, “He [Jonas] knew he had to tell it all, that it was not only all right but necessary to tell all of a dream. So he forced himself to relate the part that made him uneasy”
The Combine forces all of the patients to conform to its expectations. This is parallel to modern society since society puts pressure on people to look, act, and be a certain way. The head nurse on the ward, Nurse Ratched (or Big Nurse), is comparable to a dictator in society. She is the one who is running the Combine and she is the one who makes and enforces the rules. Chief Bromden, the narrator, claims that: “The ward is a factory for the Combine.
There is no freedom amongst the people without a little chaos, yet to maintain order, there must be oppression towards its people. McMurphy upsets the established routine of the ward by bring his own agenda such as, asking for schedule changes and inspiring resistance during therapy sessions. He teaches his peers to have fun and encourages them to embrace their desires such as watching baseball and playing cards. “If somebody’d of come in and took a look, men watching a blank TV, a fifty-year –old woman hollering and squealing at the back of their heads about discipline and order and recriminations, they’d of thought the whole bunch was crazy as loons” (Kesey 134). He convinces them that not only are they sane like everyone else, but also they are men and they are superior to the matriarchal society they are put in.

In the next group therapy meeting, McMurphy begs Nurse Ratched to rearrange the "carefully worked out schedule" of the work detail so that the inmates can watch the opener of the 1963 World Series baseball game (at Yankee Stadium) on television, adding: "a little change never hurt huh? A little variety?" To intimidate his liberating challenge to the leadership of the ward and to cause no disruption to the ward 's precise schedule, she refuses: "Some men on the ward take a long, long time to get used to the schedule. Change it now and they might find it very disturbing."
Additionally while in the patients room all paths should be clear of clutter and objects to increase safety as well. On each hourly round the nurse or nurses assistant will inform the patient of when the next hourly rounding will occur. Hourly rounding also gives patients the peace of mind that someone (nurse or nurses’ assistant) is coming back at a designated time to check on them. Hourly rounding also provides patients and opportunity to ask the nurse questions.

In the novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, by Ken Kesey, one can say that McMurphy’s tragic flaw is his ego of thinking he can win any situation with his charm. When McMurphy walks into the combine, he instantly charms the patients when he shakes everyone's hand. Any circumstance that is a task to McMurphy’s distinguished character, he will dissident against. In the mental ward, the controlling, devious Nurse Ratched delivers that precise test.
