Briefly, my specific question is: could two gunshot wounds go unnoticed by doctors if the patient has serious burns covering 60% of their body, and is admitted unconscious and alone? Is it inevitable that the wounds would be discovered promptly while stabilizing the patient and treating his burns?
This happens in The Usual Suspects, and I'm trying to determine whether the doctors' failure to mention the gunshot wounds is evidence that the patient was never shot and only burned.
My question would cite the movie specifically, but would ask about a general scenario in which extensive burns disguise gunshot wounds, and whether and how they would be discovered. I think I would also mention the year, in case relevant practices or tech are different today.
