The latest piece in my series of 40k medical fluff documents, this is a rough draft of the triage tag (front on left, back on right). A must for all Imperial medical personnel, from medics and nursing staff to the Chirurgeon-General.
These tags are attached to the casualty by the likes of a field medic (whatever name you prefer) so they go to the right places and get the right aid as they're passed along the different personnel in the chain of evacuation.
If feedback is generally positive, I'll modify a version to actually resemble a tag, and eventually make a physical tag when I have time.
I am considering a slight rejig of the system to make it more "grimdark" (yet still workable) in making reverse triage standard, this is often used by real-world militaries in wartime to keep the maximum number of soldiers on the field, so they treat the minor ones first to get them "fighting fit" and then save the severe ones if they can. I imagine in 40k there would be less effort to save the severe ones.
