Abstract

The movements of patients in hospitai especiaily Alzheimer's and mentai disorder patients are monitored manually and these type of patients will have tendency to forget their exact location. If they were to go missing, it is very difficult to track and locate them. It is crucial to locate them as fast as possible because their condition is very fragile and there have been case that patients died when they were missing. rne main objective of this research is to develop RFID based system that will be able to track the movement of the patients in hospital. This technology offers numerous advantages over the traditional method. The implementation of this project is each patient especially the Alzheimer's and mental disorder patients will be tagged with RFID tag and readers wiii be placed at strategic locations which will be monitored by nurses and other medical staffs. The nurses can monitor the patients by using software developed by combinations of programmes. With this technology, it can easily track the patients' location on real time and can prevent the patients from entering the unauthorized zone or section. As for current practice, the tracking methods are either visually or depend on surveillance cameras.
