Swedish quotation marks

Submitter Petter writes:

Regrettably this snapshot of a slide in a presentation of medical case reports at a Swedish hospital is of very poor quality. If your Swedish is a bit rusty, the headline and the first paragraph translates as:

Case 2 on the medical emergency ward A

Unconscious man, 20-25 years of age arriving by ambulance. Found in a “public” restroom.

I have no idea just what the quotation marks implies here, but they sound more than a little insinuating to me. A mystery best left unsolved, perhaps.
