I go to the hospital ward. B is still there despite it being time for him to leave the bed. There are loads of people around.
So E should be next in the bed - he is typically nowhere to be seen- is he late or just not bothering to turn up? It's such a boring problem, his Russian Vine disease, I can hardly blame him, it's just one of those recurrent things, but you've got to keep on top of it.
