Criminal Sentence 292: You're/Your in Trouble

From a sign I saw at the hospital where I volunteer:

"You're attention please."

Is this sign telling me that I am attention? You are attention?

No!! It is a sign that needs an emergency intervention!

"Your attention please. Sometimes you need an apostrophe, and sometimes you don't. Thank you for listening."
