0005628: Dwarved won't care for a severely wounded dwarf for a long time
A wounded immobile dwarf is lying in the battlefield, yet nobody cares. At least for a threateningly long time. I am not sure whether this is a bug or a Fun feature. The save is posted here (http://dffd.wimbli.com/file.php?id=5865 [^]) and a forum thread with all necessary details is here (http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=104442.0 [^])

When you load the savegame, it probably won't be until Hematite 2nd when some of the idling dwarves finally gets the Recover Wounded job.
Load the savegame and try to do anything to save the wounded dwarf as soon as possible.
No tags attached.

I second this. From my experience, it happens when the dwarf is immobile (like leg injuries), but remains conscious. As soon as he looses consciousness, he is carried to hospital.

echoing what DVeL said - this is exactly my experience as well

It happens with the mobile dwarves too, they just walk to the hospital themselves so it's not a problem, but if a mobile dwarf falls unconcious at some point someone will march over to recover them even if they could walk to the hospital just fine themselves. Causing a cave in to knock the dwarf out will queue a recover wounded job though.

This is either the rest+ko bug fixed for 0.40.12 or a duplicate of 0004850, I think.
