All patients follow the same system, which starts with them going to reception and then queuing for the GPs Office to see a Doctor. After that their paths differ from each other as they are sent to different Hospital Rooms, and to see different members of staff depending on their illness.
Due to the game only having a few character models programmed in all of the patients look the same. The Diseases the patient has can alter their design such as them having a Bloaty Head, a slack tongue or dressing like Elvis.
Emergency patients Edit
Emergency patients are special patients who have been brought to the player hospital via a helicopter from a nearby hospital or the surrounding area. These patients are a challenge for the player as they need to be treated within a time limit or they will die. They are a test to see how well organised your hospital is, the more organized the more you'll be able to treat.
The player receives cash bonuses for curing these patients. Theses patients can be identified by the flashing Blue light that hovers over their head until they have been cured. They jump to the front of the cue for treatment rooms.
