In a double blind test, the doctor who conducts it is given a number of samples identified, in most cases, by numbers or letter-digit combinations. Neither the personnel performing the experiment, nor the patients know who gets the drug and who gets only the placebo; it is revealed after the experimental part has concluded and the results are processed statistically. This ensures that the experimenting personnel or patients themselves have no possibility of altering the result of the experiment. Considering how double blind test is shown in this episode, it is certain the writers have marginal (at best) knowledge how it actually is conducted in reality. See more
