This paper proposes a method for monitoring the everyday nursing activities of medication, one part of the nurse's job that has been cited as a major cause of medical accidents. In our proposal, which we call the "E-Nightingale projects a wearable sensor can monitor the workflow of such activities constantly without impeding them. This paper describes our series of wearable sensor development and the results of a questionnaire on their ergonomics.
