0003403: Dwarf 1 injured by tantrumming military dwarf 2 does not receive any healthcare
My militia commander (2) went into a tantrum. He walked into a barracks and lopped another military dwarf's (1) arm clean off with an adamantine battle axe.

1 does not seem to want to go to the hospital, nor does the health screen (z - Health) show any diagnosis request.
1. Get a military dwarf angry, up till tantrum.
2. Wait for him to hurt someone.
3. Victim gets no healthcare.

Look for the dwarf nicknamed Mil24, he's the victim in question.

If I may suggest a temporary fix, maybe it's possible to have the dwarfs do a quick self-diagnosis from time to time; like after eating, drinking and or sleeping.

1. Urist has a drink.
2. Urist counts his limbs.
3. Urist goes "Aargh! What happened to my arm?"
4. Urist checks into the hospital.

This same behaviour appears to occur when a dwarf is injured in a justice event - especially as beatings are currently carried out with melee weapons. This can be reproduced by having your captain of the guard beat up someone random. The injured party will sit there with the "Rest" job wherever he or she was Hammered. I suggest trying this with a guard equipped with a crappy weapon, otherwise the beaten party will be bisected instead.

Perhaps conservative dwarves have successfully lobbied against the right of free public healthcare for criminals? :)
