In this study,in order to analyze duties of the nurses,we performed experiments to collect the duties activity data of the nurses for a long term.We set 38 nurses as subjects and asked them to carry out duties while attaching a wearable small sensor device,and collected the acceleration data,meeting information between nurses and the nurse duties information.In addition,we collected the location information of the nurses by using infrared information and communication equipment at the same time.In fact,we were able to extract a total of 1,805,760 pieces of activity rhythm of nurses,462,418 pieces of location information data,459,139 pieces of meeting information data,and 12,406 pieces of nurse duties information.In the future,we will visualize the nurse’s activities,and analyse the factors that affect the activity rhythm,the nurse duties,and the location information.
