[NEED MORE INFO] No way to make staff see to needs Empty [NEED MORE INFO] No way to make staff see to needs

I have a very highly qualified GP, misdiagnosing several patients because his bladder is bursting and he is starving.  There are 4 GPs and only 2 patients waiting, and it's staff lunchtime, but he chose to see patients instead of taking his lunch break, and misdiagnosed them because he was not at his best.   It is not right to penalise the player for doctors making mistakes if you have not allowed the player any way to instruct the doctor to take a break other than closing the entire department.

hello - thank you for your report - could you please upload screenshot or saved game file (better to analyze) - for further analysis, if there is something wrong?

The day finished, I don't have it saved at that point. This is a general rule, the doctors in emergency clinic don't like to leave their office while there are patients waiting to be seen. All players say the same. That makes them diligent doctors of course, but a good doctor will know when he is doing more harm than good by not seeing to his own needs. I believe this is probably working as designed, but it either needs better balance or a player needs a way to send doctor on break. I think the reason this was happening to him more than the other doctors, is he was the office nearer the entrance, and as other players have already described, all the AI in the game likes to use the nearest of anything, not the one that has the shortest queue, or the least distance to navigate

I can attest to this.
GPs will never leave their office as long as there are patients in the waiting room.
In fact, no staff member at all will take a break as long as there are tasks assigned to them, regardless of what their role is (except for janitors).
I actually forgot to report this bug, since I fixed it by just adding more GPs and other departments, which lowered the pressure on the Emergency clinic.
