Summary0001224: Dwarfs ignore the wounded
DescriptionSometimes dwarfs just don't pay attention to the wounded in hospitals. I've just had a clash with a titan during which one of my dwarfs lost both legs. The dwarfs hauled her to bed in the hospital, and then just left her there. Eventually she died of dehydration, while the well is basically next door to the hospital, there were about 30 idle dwarfs with 'feed wounded' and 'recover wounded' jobs enabled, and there was a crowd of idle doctors as well. This doesn't happen all the time, I've had a few earlier episodes when the hospital system worked satisfactorily.

Now I have a wounded dwarf in a hospital. Usually other dwarfs just ignore her. When she starts feeling hungry/dehydrated, I order to build a new bucket. This somehow triggers the "give food/water" sequence. But nothing more. I have tons of diagnosers, including several as high as high masters, but no one of them seems to care to give a diagnosis.

Medical care seems to have a very very very low priority on a dwarf's to do list. When I want my Doc to work on somone, I usually suspend all his other activities and turn off any hauling jobs he has active. The Doc will still usually sit around idle 80% of the time, but eventually he'll poke at at the patients a little. Diagnose a little, hang out in the meeting hall for a few days, clean a few wounds, harvest some plants, store his mittens in his cabinet, check his chest a few times, hang out with the war dogs. Then he'll sit on someone's head suturing them until they die of thirst.

Dwarven medicine is a little strange.

The conditions were pretty restrictive for feeding/watering, and I've loosened it up for 0.31.07. Hopefully it will be kinder for life.
