0005928: Injured dwarf not taken to hospital, stuck in place with "no job"
Twice now I have had a incident where a dwarf was injured, but was not taken to the hospital. The subject would simply stand in place with "No job" and do absolutely nothing. No "Recover wounded" job would be listed on the [j]obs menu. The first instance resulted in the dwarf going melancholy due to hunger and thirst-induced unhappiness. The second I actually managed to resolve in-game, and may have inadvertently determined the nature of this bug.
Sadly, I do not have any saves with stuck dwarfs (the first subject was dead and the second had been resolved before I saved the game). However, in the second case, I noticed that there was an empty bed in my (rather small) hospital that was not filled, despite quite a few dwarfs having been injured. I decided to deconstruct the bed to see what happened. Upon doing so, a job cancellation notification popped up, indicating that my countess had cancelled a "Recover wounded" job, despite such a job not appearing in the [j]obs menu. I suspect that the freezing in place of the stuck dwarf was due to the countess having "claimed" him for recovery, but her status as a noble was preventing her from actually bringing him to the hospital. When I replaced the bed soon afterwards, he remained stuck, and deconstructing the bed once again produced another cancellation message from the countess. Replacing the bed yet again resulted in one of my ordinary workers taking the injured dwarf to the hospital.
