In this paper, we integrate nurse activity data, location data, and medical records to predict the nursing load of every day, assuming the application for task allocation for nurses. We collected nurse activity data, location data, medical payment data, and nursing needs data in cooperation with one floor of a hospital, which constitutes the orthopedic surgery department, for 40 days, 24 hours per day. With the collected data, we predicted the next day’s nursing time for a patient from the previous day’s patient status using RandomForest algorithm, and achieved 73.7% of accuracy.
