  • Publication number: 20180260530
    Abstract: A patient monitoring system includes patient identification transmitters that each transmit a patient identifier and clinician identification transmitters that each transmit a clinician identifier. Identification receivers are arranged in a care facility to receive patient identifiers and the clinician identifiers. A location tracking system determines a patient location within the care facility for each patient identification transmitter based on a location of receipt of the patient identifier, and determines a clinician location for each clinician identification transmitter based on the location of receipt of the clinician identifier. A mapping module is executable to receive the patient locations and the clinician locations, and locate the patient locations and the clinician locations on a map of the care facility. It then displays a patient location indicator for each patient location and a clinician location indicator for each clinician location on the map of the care facility.
