GRIEVOUS WOUNDS
Hit Points loss represents mostly non-physical injuries, luck and minor scrapes.  They do not recharge on a long rest.  
½ of total Hit Dice are recovered after each long rest in the wilds.  Level of HD/day in a comfortable inn.  
These Hit Dice are spent to heal Hit Points.  
Grievous Wounds represent the actual big hits.
Whenever you take damage that reduces you to 0 HP, you suffer a Grievous Wound.  
That character has Disadvantage on all rolls determined by your Wound roll until it is healed.  A Critical Hit or a hit of 50+ dmg that drop a character to 0 HP forces a roll on the Lingering Injuries table in the DMG p272.
Roll 1d6, unless circumstances dictate a particular condition.
1. Beaten - Strength
2. Broken - Constitution
3. Crippled - Dexterity
4. Disoriented - Intelligence

Wounds are recovered through the Restoration spell, a Medicine roll DC 20 after a Long Rest (one check per wound), or 2d6 weeks of rest (1d6 weeks if maintaining a “Comfortable” lifestyle).
