0004498: Dwarves with lingering medical problems
I've noticed that some relatively minor problems linger with some dwarves.

Damaged nails are ignored completely. Dwarves don't seem to mind them, and they don't seem to cause any complications, but they're still listed as pending injuries. No medicine-related actions are taken by the doctors to fix them.

Spinal injuries cause some funny business. There's one dwarf with a cut apart spine - otherwise, he's fine. He keeps crawling around, helping out as much as he can, rather than resting in bed. Anything he does is extremely slow due being prone.

There's also another who has seemingly unhealing wounds, among which happen to be heavy bruising of the spine. His case is otherwise similar to the above, but I'd expect him to eventually recover. It's been years, and he's still crawling around, still with heavy bruising.

1. Load up save.
2. Go to the health screen, navigate to dwarves with problems listed.
3. See broken nails and two cases of spinal injury.
4. Nails are ignored, spinal injuries lead to functional, but permanently crawling dwarves.

Seeing this with broken toes or fingers. They don't ever seem to heal, though the dwarf is up and about after being treated in a hospital with a cloth bandage.

I'm seeing a variant of this. My healing issues are not related to spinal injuries alone. For me, all my dwarfs that have been treated still show their wounds (from the V-W status menu), but they move about as though they are healed and the detailed status shows scars only. This is after six game years.

For example, Minkot Osramiteb Enshal Edos:
v-w (Wounds): upper body (brown) lower body (brown), left lower leg (yellow) left knee (yellow) fourth toe, left foot (red)

Detailed Thoughts and preferences:
His fourth toe, left foot is broken. His forth toe, left foot is smashed.
...His upper body bears the marks of old wounds including a tiny straight scar. His lower body bears a tiny straight scar. His left lower leg bears a tiny straight scar.
Health History (without brought to bed, evaluated, cleaned):
132:Compound fracture of fourth toe, left foot repaired
138 received yak hair sutures on lower body
138 received sheep wool dressing on lower body
143 splint and pig tail fiber dressing on right upper and lower arm

Health wounds
fourth toe left foot nail
smashed apart
lower and upper body fat and skin are listed. Lower left leg skin, fat, and muscle and left knee muscle are also listed.

The nail-template and also the claw-, horn- and all hair-templates have no healing-rates. In real life they regrow by themselves. So adding a healing-rate to the templates would solve big parts of this problem, I think.

In 40.13, I have a dwarf with several cuts on their beard and a broken toe and a dwarf with a broken, smashed apart finger and a broken nose. Neither of them are scheduled for any medical care. The first dwarf had their knee cared for in the hospital, but no mention of the toe or beard in the treatment history or schedule.

How would one treat a dwarf with several cuts on their beard?
