 This study is improvement of nursing care providing system from cell nursing system that is taken from the cell production system in manufacturing. Cell production system is different from line production system as belt conveyor system. One worker or one group operate all of production process. Under the cell nursing system nurses are assigned patients’ rooms in charge for all caring tasks on daily bases. In addition, other tasks such as information gathering and sharing, and conference are carried out in patients’ rooms rather than at staff station. As a result of being closer to patients, nurses are able to catch sings from patients easily, and then are able to provide forestalling care to patients. Some of positive impacts are the reduced number of Nurse Call Volumes. In this paper are discussed based on data of the Location Detecting System.
