According to Dr. Ted, the Lemuel Shattuck Hospital had a difficult patient population. Most patients came from prisons and very poor communities, and they suffered from poor health conditions. Despite this, all interns under his guidance showed dedication in their work. Dr. Ted evaluated his interns as "educated, sensitive, willing to work hard, and able to re-moralize and spark renewed interest in health."
