This study proposed a system to schedule the nursing practices. The schedule was arranged basing on the statuses of each patient and nurse. There was an alarm system for supervising the whole nursing progress, and it would raise a warning if any abnormal condition happened. The deployed work log database was for recording the full nursing procedures, and analyzing the outcome for schedule modification. The proposed system omitted the traditional paperwork, and increased the efficiency and quality. It was useful in audit and administration, and it was also a valuable reference in the developments of nursing standard, clinic path, and electronic medical record.
