Some new diseases could be set for a longer stay, e.g. a psychotic patient that visits the psychiatrist, then sleeps a while in the ward, and repeats this until he is cured.

We could possible have a stretching rack as a new clinic. This could be used to cure shortness and teenagism (turning the teenager into a full sized adult).

How about a back to earth clinic (requires a psychiatrist) that looks a lot like sick bay on the enterprise to cure trekkies of their obsession for wearing star trek costumes and uniforms?

What about a music clinic to cure people who have a bad taste in music?

Or maybe we could have a fashion clinic to cure people who wear grey, city suits, or dress as a gothic.

We also need to cure "speed freaks" obsessed with cars or motorbikes. These people could leave a motorbike outside the hospital entrance. Those that are delivering a pizza to the staff room or flowers to one of the nurses probably don't need treatment of course.

Nice ones mark, do you want to start on the graphics? You have so many varied ideas, maybe make graphics for all of them?

Yeah. We need an export on the graphics, and a body for the doctor. I was thinking of colour coding the uniforms and adding pocket stripes to indicate skills. I am also thinking of having both male and female doctors.

Oh boy, this is fun! And this is only stuff for the Pharmacy. If people enjoy these, I can embark on the Psychiatrist's collection.


Name: Festering Ryoma.

Cause: No known cause, Ryoma just appears.

Symptoms: This is pretty much the most disgusting thing ever. Nobody likes waking up slick with Ryoma.

Cure: A trained psychiatrist must first deal with the trauma of Ryoma. The patient is then referred to the pharmacy where a cocktail of antibiotics, antivirals, antifungals and soap is administered.

Path: GP ? Psy ? GP ? Pharma

Notes: Inspired by this comic that made me feel a bit ill. I hope Ryoma isn't trademarked! http://www.qwantz.com/index.php?comic=431



 
Name: The Big One

Cause: Beer, wine, Scotch, Gin and Tequila. Through a hose.

Symptoms: A headache that re-creates conditions a billionth of a second after the Big Bang.

Cure: A nurse administers a mix of egg yolks, chilli powder and rubbing alcohol, followed by a stern lecture.

Path: GP ? Pharm

Notes: Patients suffering from this 'disease' are EXTREMELY likely to un-eat a rainbow onto the floor.




Name: Tinsel-itis

Cause: Accidental or intentional consumption of festive decorations.

Symptoms: Yule logs.

Cure: Patient must drink a sweet concoction distilled from candy bars and mint humbugs. Bar Humbug.

Path: GP ? G. Diag. ? Scanner ? GP ? Pharm

Notes: These patients may need to use the toilet facitilies for a long time. If anyone can make them fart glitter, they will be my hero.



Name: Stewed Plums

Cause: Sitting for long periods with a laptop computer.

Symptoms: Uncomfortably warm and chafey crotch.

Cure: A nurse gives the patient a chilled extract of cold cream to drink, and an ice pack to take home.

Path: GP ? G. Diag. ? Cardio ? GP ? Pharm

Notes: Obviously sufferers are exclusively male. The use of the Cardio is cruel and unusual punishment.



Name: Malodorous Secretions

Cause: Patient has forsaken normal diet in favour of home-grown produce.

Symptoms: Patient's humours reek like a mix of goat's cheese, garlic and manure.

Cure: A nurse forces the patient to drink a potion containing extracts of non-organic peppermint, eucalyptus and citrus oils.

Path: GP ? Blood Machine ? GP ? Pharm

Notes: Pretty standard. Possibly patient comes covered in brown and green stains and disarrayed hair like an overworked doctor.



Name: Elastic Limit

Cause: Amateur yoga sessions.

Symptoms: Patient's connective tissues are loose, floppy and unresponsive.

Cure: Patient must drink a tonic of molten rubber to re-elasticate the tissues.

Path: GP ? Cardio ? X-ray ? GP ? Pharm

Notes: Patients could use same model as Jelly-itis sufferers.

I am thinking that some patients may be in such a state that a lightning flash occurs in their toilet cubicle followed by a rumbling noise
of relief. We obviously need new animations and sounds for this.

Name: Handymenstruation

Cause: Repressed childhood desires.

Symptoms: Patient has quit their high-paying executive position to apply for a maintenance job at the hospital. (Patient dresses like handyman, uses most handyman animations; may occasionally attempt to sweep floors making them messier, kill plants through improper watering, or damage machines?)

Cure: After a mock hiring interview, one of our psychiatrists must give a comprehensive breakdown of our benefits package, convincing the patient of their huge mistake.

With added condtions.
E.g Half way to due date with worries of dropping baby. (needs psychiatric to cure)

GPs Office, New Ultrasound,  some patients will need Psychiatric, some will need Ward.




Code: [Select]

GPs Office, New Ultrasound, New labor room (or support for labor in ward), new baby ward (or add new optional object to ward. 4x4 object that takes 4 babies.

Cure: Does ultrasound, gives labor, baby goes to baby ward, patient waits on bench (or spends same amount of time in ward as baby spends in baby ward) then goes home with the baby in a carriage

Maybe someone who has been close to a pregnancy can correct/add details. Change/add rooms, or check in times for non-due patients
