This was inspired by Enjays puzzle
If they had just let him get hurt, he would not be in the hospital right now(Boy, I hope this isn't going to be the solution to Enjays')

Is he in the hospital because he is injured? Sick? Visiting someone?
Relevant who "they" are? Do they know him?
I'm just getting inspiration from the first questions asked on my puzzle lol

So, he is in the hospital because he is sick. Is it important what type of sickness he has?

when he gets hurt, does he get hurt physically? emotionally? or does he just get sicker?

is he hurt by an object? (maybe the television in his room fell on him?)
is he hurt by another person (fell on him?)

if he is hurt emotionally, does someone give him bad news about someone close to him--wife? children?

ah right good! to prevent him catching the illness did they try to keep him inside? give him medicine? a shot? spray something around him? clean stuff? was there a reason he specifically might have caught this illness? or could anyone have caught it?

first illness: did he catch a cold? flu? pneumonia? bronchitis?

did he catch the illness from someone else in the house? if so, would he have not caught it had he not been confined inside?

when he was in the hospital, did he injure himself by falling? hitting his head on something? breaking a bone?

and presumably that factor is to do with "them" keeping him safe from the pneumonia? they tried to keep him inside to be safe from pneumonia didn't they? and did he get annoyed with that? and leave anyway? which ended up with him falling?
